What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Henchman for Hire is a VR game made by students. We lack the resources to fully test the game and we want you to tell us what's fun and what isn't. A huge reason why we're doing Early Access is our need for direct feedback from you. We're looking to achieve comfortable game play regardless of the VR equipment of choice. This also helps us ensure the bugs are non-existent and animations run smoothly.

We're bringing Henchman for Hire to early access because we want you to help us shape the game!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Development will continue until at least June 2020. We may conditionally continue development past that point, but it will depend on how quickly we can add all of the planned assets.”

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

“The final release will primarily focus on polish and bug fixes. However we're very excited to hear your feedback, and may add more features based on popular requests!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“You are able to interact with your moped controls, drive, steer and traverse the environment. Virtual hands are currently implemented and will undergo a material update as to not look generic white. All buttons are interactable which are required in order to progress the game. The downtown level of Peace City is complete.

Additional features can be seen in the "about this" section as well as with our trailer and screenshots.”

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

“As a small student game, Henchman for Hire will remain free for everyone to enjoy. We want everyone to experience our game and enjoy a free VR experience!”

About This Game

Henchman for Hire is a first person driving VR game where you take on the role of a henchman for the super villain Dr. BAD. Traverse Peace City alongside your trusty V.P.S. (Villain Positioning System™) -- and sabotage Dr. BAD's archnemesis, Justiceman!. Drive, jump and sabotage Peace City while traveling on a surprisingly resilient moped!

Not Convinced!? Meet Dr. BAD himself!

Activate buttons to complete tasks and sabotage Peace City!

Do you like the idea of working for the world's greatest super villain? Isn't the fact that the "bad guy always loses" unfair!? Do you want to ride around on a moped doing dastardly things!?! Than we have the job for you!

Together we'll put a stop to Justiceman and all his dumb hero nonsense! Dr. BAD is standing by...

NOTICE: No actual wages promised for serving as a henchman. Health care, benefits, and sick leave not guaranteed. Uniforms not provided.
