What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Nano Shift currently includes the first completely playable chapter out of three planned, and what we hope will be a continuing series of episodic games. Each chapter will be an hour and a half of play time in VR, more if players replay for optional puzzles. There are still content, features, and audio polish we’d like to include in the full version of Nano Shift, and Early Access gives us time to respond to community feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're aiming for 3 - 4 months for additional chapters.”

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

“Two additional chapters, save/checkpoint loading system, art asset updates, integrate the game’s achievements with Steam, add Steam trading cards, and address any bugs or design issues early players might find.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Chapter 1 fully playable at approximately an hour, to hour and a half, of play time.”

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

“The price will increase as each additional chapter is added.”

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

“I’d like to address bugs and common low points, while retaining and creating new high points. Descriptive posting will save a huge amount of time :) A great way to post feedback is to indicate Highs, Lows, and Bugs.”

Launch day, woo! and 20% off for the first week!

We pushed that big green button and launched in early access, and we're celebrating our launch with 20% for the first week :D Also celebrating with a few drinks too ;) This is our first VR game, and a lot of passion went into it, so here's to hoping you guys like it!

We want to be very transparent and receptive of feedback/criticism, so any and all feedback is more than welcome. I'll be putting together a roadmap for development in the next few days, but the current top priority is to get a checkpoint-loading system in. We also intend to update and polish audio further, in the near future.

Cheers! ^.^

About This Game

Nano Shift is a Virtual Reality puzzle mystery game set slightly in the future during the struggle against an invasive Nano Virus that has reduced a large part of the earth's surface to an uninhabitable wasteland. Nano Shift will take you on a search through time for traces of who or what released the Nano Virus that wiped out 80% of the Earth’s population. The Harvest as they sometimes called it.

Your story begins in a gritty underground compound as volunteer #137, moments before you are requested for duty. Your journey will take you more than half a century in the past, to when humans could still safely walk the surface. To see through the deception and solve the mystery behind Nano Shift you'll need sharp wits, a keen eye, and a little help from a few friends.

Gameplay is a puzzle mystery mixed with exploration elements. With rich environmental storytelling, full 360 degree sound, and a fully interactive world, Nano Shift brings a truly immersive experience that is unique to Room-Scale VR.

This game is broken up into chapters, with the first full chapter currently included and available to play. Two more chapters are in the works and will be released as they are finished. The price of this game will increase as more chapters are added. We're in early access and still have some kinks to work out, but it's quite stable and offers approximately an hour, to hour and a half, of play time.

Gameplay features include:
- Rich and detailed environments.
- Puzzles and interactions built for tracked motion controllers.
- Teleporting not required. In fact it’s not even recommended! (unless your play space is under the minimum Room-Scale measurements of 2.8m x 2.8m).
- Lots of logical and dexterity puzzles.
- Graphic and control settings options.
- Floor height adjustment setting (especially useful when letting a taller, or shorter, friend have a play session).
