What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“You get immediate access to hot new features as they're introduced. I've worked on many games and magic happens when the community is involved. I truly value the feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“About 6 to 12 months.”

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

“The full version of Drone Hero is planned to contain more social features and customization. I want to connect players with each other to collaborate, compete and share. There are a few social features in development and I'll show it soon.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable with plenty of challenges, global leaderboard, local multiplayer, etc. A lot of effort has gone into creating the drone steering. The art is rudimentary in some areas.”

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

“The final price hasn't been decided yet.”

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

“You're welcome to submit feedback from within the game and on the community page. All constructive feedback is read, considered, and potentially integrated.”

Difficulty Balancing

I made another difficulty balancing pass. Many levels should be more forgiving now. Let me know of anything seems off - too easy or too hard.

Have fun!

Built-In Camera Director



There's now a built-in camera director that can be turned on in the options menu (new). The camera director automatically sweeps around the level and frames the player's avatar and drone in the middle of the action - as seen in the game trailer.

It's especially handy for when you're playing with friends and they're in the couch, or when you're recording a video.

It adds a slight performance cost, but a powerful computer should be able to cope.

The new options page lets you:
- Toggle the music
- Toggle the strobe
- Toggle the camera director

About This Game

Drone Hero is a VR action game where you fly a drone through checkpoints whilst dodging heat-seeking missiles, zapping lasers, and other dangers.

STEERING

You have absolute control! Countless hours have gone into perfecting the steering. The drone aligns with the rotation of your hand, and pushing the trigger cranks up the power. Don't worry, a tutorial will guide you through the basics, and with a bit of practice you'll buzz around the room in no time.

BINAURAL AUDIO

Steam Audio is used to leverage HRTF-based binaural rendering. This refers to a way of recreating how a sound is affected by a listener's head, ears, and torso, resulting in subtle cues that allow you to pinpoint exactly where a sound is coming from.

CHALLENGES

You'll discover 25 unique levels packed with lasers, heat-seeking missiles and other dangers. You fly through the checkpoints as fast as you can -- the faster the higher the score. You can get up to 3 stars on each level, but you'll have to work hard because it's exclusive to the best players.

LOCAL MULTIPLAYER

Wanna play with friends, family or colleagues? Drone Hero offers local multiplayer using pass-and-play. All players will be put through a set of random challenges. You'll all fight, but there will only be one winner.

GLOBAL LEADERBOARD

Climb to fame on the global leaderboard. It's updated live, so as soon as you pass someone, they'll know.

ATMOSPHERE

You'll feel surrounded by light because the room is packed with bright lights that change color and synchronize with the pumping bass.

SEIZURE WARNING

A small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to certain visual images, including flashing lights or patterns. Immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you experience any symptoms.
