What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

From the Future has a novel concept combined with a unique locomotion system. This kind of game could not have existed outside of VR. We believe what we have is a lot of fun but we would like to get our game into the hands of players for some serious feedback. We also want to reward early adapters with a lower price and start generating excitement early.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game should be finished in about 2 months give or take a few weeks depending on player feedback.”

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

“The plan is for the full version to have two more large levels, including another boss fight. We would also like to add a couple of more weapons as well as more horses to ride. Achievements and game stats will also be part of final release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version is a fully polished, playable game with three large levels, 5 weapons, and 4 horses and a pig to ride. The last level is a massive boss fight.”

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

“Yes. The early access game will be priced lower than the final release.”

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

“We would love for the community to give us feedback on game balance and what they would like to see for achievements, new weapons, and new horses. Would they rather hunt bad guys for bounty? How would they like to see that bounty rewarded and how would they like to use it? Do you have a great one-liner for a member of the Dynamite Gang? We are very open to ideas and value community feedback.”

About This Game

Hopalong: The Badlands is a VR game where violence and comedy combine with a one-of-a-kind movement system. Hop, skip, or simply wave your stick horse up and down to gallop smoothly through the western landscape filled with the villainous group known as the Dynamite Gang. They are beyond redemption and there is no “or Alive” part on their wanted posters.

Key Features:
  • Oscillot locomotion system for intuitive movement through the landscape
  • Murderous stick-horse riding outlaws made out of wood.
  • Weapons! Start with an eight shooter. Unlock a pick, double barrel shotgun, sniper rifle and dynamite as you progress.
  • Fight Boss Boomity and his flying stick-pig Pigasus in an intense night time battle.
  • Earn new stick horses as you progress, even Pigasus!
  • Dodge dynamite or shoot it while it's in the air back at the imbecile that threw it.
  • Enemies with Gatling guns? Run!
