What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are working with many different fluent speaking elders from many different communities to verify each Kanien’kéha dialect (Mohawk Language word) origins and it is a very slow process. Kakwitene VR is also part of a much larger Endangered Language Revival & Retention project that is researching the validity of VR’s claims to speed up the time required to learn a new topic and to increase memory retention. Early access allows us to adapt our content & provide it to other communities to re-use for their own endangered language revival & retention projects.

Endangered Languages typically have more elderly fluent speakers with few or no younger (tech savvy) speakers. We have found community collaboration works best when we can show the fluent speaking elders what we are building, our intentions for the language revival & retention and give them plenty of space and non-rushed time to provide their input in the final outcomes of the Endangered Language Revival & Retention software products.

Early Access provides us with resources to support the fluent speakers and the technical production teams to continue working on these projects.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“1 to 6 weeks.”

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

“We plan to add more gamification features (voice chat, multiplayer for entire classrooms to participate simultaneously, voice commands and leader board)”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Features:
    [* Fly around and into the colored pollen spheres to hear how to pronounce the colors with Kanien’kéha dialects (Mohawk Language Dialects) ]
    [* Speak Kanien’kéha colors to make the shelf change color in the far corner of the garden. ]
    [* VR Controller primary index trigger to fly in direction you look.]
    [* VR Controller thumbstick down to fly backward.]

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

“Game price will increase when it goes beyond early access.”

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

“Users can provide feedback, request new game features and practice communicating with Kanien'kéha dialects on the Kakwitene Discussion Board.”
