What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Afloat is in eary access, because it's a great way to involve the the VR community, in creating a fun and interesting building/survial game in VR. Early acces is a great platform for this, allowing for player feedback, and the chance to incorporate ideas.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The aim is that Afloat will be released in the spring of 2020”

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

“For the full version, I would like to add a lot more variety to the objects that can be used, and add more tools, crafting recipes, and buildables. Next to that, I will also be working on adding more different biomes, and fixing bugs. I would also love to listen to the players, and possibly add any features that are requested by the community.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Right now, you can do alot already. You can already gather, craft, fish, cook, build and fight hostile creatures.”

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

“The price of the game will increase when its's fully released, but while in early access, the price will stay the same.”

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

“I hope the VR community can be involved in this project, since every suggestion or feedback is welcome. The best way to do this, would be through the steam community hub.”
