What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“During play testing, players were able to solve levels differently than originally designed. Other players had feedback that led to a more fulfilling experience. Opening The game to Early Access allows community input gives me resources I would not otherwise have access to. It should provide a better all round game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“6 Months.”

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

“The full game will be broken into 3 chapters containing a boss fight at every tenth level. Each chapter will be themed differently. starting with Chapter 1 where the player escapes dungeons themed levels.

Early Access will be Chapter 1 (levels 1 - 10) and will be updated as levels are designed.

Chapter 2 will be over world/castle themed

Chapter 3 will be cloud/sky themed.

Each chapter will have different challenges but will maintain familiar mechanics.

Additionally, each chapter ties into a loose story.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“7 Levels out of 10 complete,

Full game mechanics implemented.

Normal Enemies coded

Boss character designed but needs coding

Sound and Music Complete”

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

“No. price will remain the same for the life cycle of the product except for sales.”

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

“The game is designed for VR, as such, I intend to engage Reddit, YouTube streamers and steam itself through the community hub to gather feedback and improve the game for the community.

I am also excited to chronicle my development through the steam page and through the website now that I have a solid game.”

This full version update contains level 8 as well as a few bug fixes.
  • Little Einar no longer rotates when being controlled in mid-air.
  • The jumping audio only sounds when Little Einar can actually perform a jump.
    • Previously the audio would sound as long as the jump button was pressed.
