What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The goal of Fractal is to create a simple action game thats is fun for both players new to virtual reality (VR) and veteran gamers alike. VR is a brand new frontier for game design, we need feedbacks from our players to guide our development in order to achieve this goal. Early access is one of the best ways to build a community of players passionate about our game and together create a game that is truly for our players.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning to have new features constantly being pushed out and iterate on them together with our community. The current plan is to have Early Access last around 4-6 months.”

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

“The current planned features include the following:
  • Fully realized realtime combat system
  • Customizable spells through a rune system
  • Loot system
  • Upgrade system
  • Story mode
  • Survival mode
  • Challenges and achievements
Our goal during Early Access is to fully develop these features that will take into account player feedback in a huge way.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version features a complete tutorial mode to get you started, two playable normal (story) levels, as well as an endless survival mode for unlimited fun!”

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

“The price for early access is set cheaper than our planned full release price as appreciation for players who support and guide our development. As the game move towards full release, the price will increase to reflect the expanding game contents.”

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

“We plan to develop and iterate many features during early access. We cannot do it without community feedback. The steam community has so much to offer and it would be a shame to waste all that creativity. Let's push the boundaries of VR and craft an amazing game experience together!”
