What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The main goal is to receive user feedback and make the final game a great experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Around 9 months.”

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

“The full version will include new board games (Checkers, Connect Four and Chutes-And-Ladders), achievements, multiplayer gaming via Steam, improved experience for new players, improved graphics and game features and also introduce improvements to overall game performance.
When the full version is ready, it is most likely that a free-to-play version of the game will be available for new players to jump right in, along with the purchasable version via Steam.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Backgammon game is currently playable, but not finalized.
Other board games are still under development.
The answer to this question is updated as the state of the game changes.
Update 2018-03-07: Checkers game is available.”

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

“Yes. During the Early Access, the game is free to play. The plan is to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

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

“Follow the updates in the Steam store news page.
Send us your feedback, comments, requests, bugs, etc. on the discussions page.”

About This Game

Play board games in virtual reality.

Currently the only games available to play are backgammon and checkers, which take place in a room.

Please note that you might need a chair to sit on when playing the game. In which case, try not to injure yourself.

Development of this game started as a hobby project to chill, play backgammon. After a while I decided to share this game and its experience with the world... So, enjoy the game and if you happen to have constructive feedback, share it here and watch it happen over time! ;)
