What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Castaway VR is still in development process and we wish to present the best possible experience to all players later when it is fully released. The platform is still in its infancy, and developers are still figuring out the works when it comes to game mechanics and general user experience. We believe that Early Access process can help us develop the game better by listening to ideas from the community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We don’t expect Early Access to last more than 6 months.”

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

“A full range of Steam Achievements, Online Multiplayer System, New Islands, and night time events like a wolf herd attacking etc. The game will include a few other mini games like an online arena combat.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In Early Access, you can mine, gather, cut and/or climb trees, collect resources, craft tools (such as axes, pickaxes, spears, maces, knifes, clubs etc.), craft buildings (foundations, pillars, walls, doors, windows, stairs etc.), hunt animals/barbarians, ride horses and swim. Your survival is dependent on an integrated system for both hunger and health. You have to collect fruits from trees or gather meats from animals to satiate your hunger. Game has also a day and night cycle, in which you can only sleep during night time. When you sleep, game saves. Your resources reset every few days. There are still some bugs in need of fixing, and some features/ certain play areas have not yet been added into the game.”

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

“Early Access price will most certainly be lower compared to the final launch version.”

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

“We want feedback! The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly will help us improve the game altogether. What aspects of the game you found enjoyable, what you disliked, and what kind of bugs you have encountered so far? We want to know everything so we can improve the experience.”

Story

The anthropology department of an international university is running a great project on how primitive human beings overcame the challenges of environment and made into settled life. However the project gets choked in a way and is left with some unsolved problems. But the university decides to expand the project by adding some experimental history part into it.


Caleb is an academician working on utopias and primitive tribes. Thus he had an opportunity to be involved with the project and the conditions were explained to him. Caleb broods on for a while and one day he notices that his daughter is reading the book, Robinson Crusoe with pleasure. Then he gets convinced and accepts the project. He will be telling his own island story when he comes back.


Now the island story of the Caleb is just starting. He must build a settled life quickly and, much for the worst, he is to struggle with the barbarians of the island. But he has no idea about the chip-like component that the university embedded under his skin to follow all his actions. No idea, yet. Caleb is to stay alive, complete the adventure and go back to his daughter to tell his own island story… but he is not aware how hard it will be to stay alive in that island. It may be impossible to go back!
