What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We recognize that our game, while amazing in our eyes, still has some polish to go in order to fully realize our dream and vision. Thus, we are putting the game on Early Access to involve the community in the decision-making process in refining it.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“At the current moment, we do not have a hard deadline for the end of Early Access but the community can expect between 6 - 12 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will feature polished content, improved controls, additional characters, further sub-quests, and overall improvements in the game. We are also looking to support the Oculus Rift. We have a bug that the techs at Oculus are stumped by and they are working closely with us to resolve this issue.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“First Impact: Rise of a Hero is currently playable from the beginning of the story through to the end. We have 6+ hours of content in the game. By providing the game in Early Access, you will get a version of the game that will grow with our users and allow you to experience that transition from Early Access to Full Release.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“As we continue to develop the game, we will make sure that the Final Release is inline with games that are on the market. There aren't a lot of Open World Action-RPGs out there, but we'll do our best to review our prices. We do expect that the price will increase a small amount at launch.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Our game takes a lot of risks with control schemes due to the fact that the HTC Vive is a newer piece of hardware. We're planning on taking the feedback from players to streamline controls, get perspectives on additional content they would like to see, and to optimize the experience of the Community.”

First Impact now in Early Access!

Hey Superheroes,

Just a quick shout out to all of our early Community people who allowed us to admit our mistakes of launching as a Full Release game and work with Valve to re-release the game in Early Access.

We feel that this move is best for the game, as there are a number of bug fixes, improvements and additions that we want to make to the game. Please provide us with feedback! Your constructive criticism will allow us to go into the game and keep improving it until we are damned sure it has the polish needed to launch as a Final Release!

Features


CONTROL THE FOUR ELEMENTS - Skewer enemies with spikes of earth, fry them to a crisp with a heated fireball, impale them with ice shards or just send them flying with tornados.

CHOOSE HOW YOU MOVE - Have you ever wanted to truly experience flying? Then with the push of a button take to the skies and fly between buildings, among clouds and avoid birds and airplanes. Got a fear of heights? Not a problem, as a superhero you can move at super speed and get anywhere you want to go. Just don't forget that you can also teleport if need be and scale large buildings through your super jump!

INTERACT WITH YOUR ENVIRONMENT - With your super strength you can lift a variety of objects within the game. Did your neighbor irritate you? Park their car somewhere else for them... that same car can be used for pitching practice or even a hammer to take on that pesky thug who keeps trying to attack you.

DISCOVER THE TRUTH - You weren't always super, so it's up to you to find out why the world seems to be going through this chaos. Meet your three support characters, General Barclay Whitehill, Dr. Ernest Giorgio and Chieftain Aulani. These three will work with you in uncovering the truth behind the meteor showers and guide you as you take on your newfound challenges as a hero. Prepare for a fun and engaging story.

IMMERSE YOURSELF - With the combination of the comic book art style and original audio, prepare to get lost in the world of First Impact: Rise of a Hero. This game aims to remind you of the good old days of reading the latest issue of your favourite comic and imagining yourself as the hero. The only difference is that you actually are the hero!
