What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“At Gameplay Studio VR we believe in the power of the community. We have tested Rhythm Defender, retested it, and then tested it a few more times, but nothing is as strong as having it tested by the community that we so strongly believe in.
VR has come a long way already, but we think that there is still so much potential, and what can be better than discovering the possibilities together. That’s why we decided to create the early access.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our plan is to release a full release within a few months. We are convinced of the game, but want to test it against the needs and desires of the community. As soon as we have the feeling that Rhythm Defender is there for 200%, we will initiate the full release.”

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

“Given the advanced state of Rhythm Defender, we hope we have already addressed most of the needs of the community, but we plan to add extra bonus items, extra bonus rounds and more enemy types. We are also working on a calorie counter and heart rate monitor system.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Rhythm Defender is release ready, we are almost 100% sure. But since no one is perfect, even after testing, retesting and retesting again, we considered it no more than normal to first put it on Steam as early access. Basically it’s a full release in the form of an early access game. Please check the about this game section for the current status of the game.”

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

“To give as many people as possible the opportunity to enjoy early access and thereby increase the chance of usable feedback, we have indeed reduced the price of early access, so it differs from the full release selling price.”

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

“We would like to involve the community in the development or improvement of the games by listening on all our channels including a discord channel https://discord.gg/HnYvUCa.
A community can only be as strong as its involvement, and as far as we are concerned all roads are open.”
