What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We would like to present STRIDE’s parkour movement mechanics to the community. We hope to receive feedback on how to improve the mechanics as we continue development at this still relatively early stage.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to be in Early Access until all three arcade modes have been released. This is likely to be towards the end of 2020. Each additional mode will likely integrate mechanics and other upgrades based on feedback from the community.”

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

“The early access version of the game is a series of arcade modes. These modes are released progressively as follows:

1. Endless Mode: Infinite level generation provides unlimited challenging terrain.
2. Speed mode: Test your parkour-at-speed skills in a race against the clock
3. Arena mode: A spacious varied-terrain arena with waves of enemies. Perfect for practicing tricks and refining your shooting skills.

NOTE: Paying for one mode entitles buyers to all three modes (as they are released)
The full version of the game will feature an immersive storyline (this is separate from and in addition to the three arcade modes). The player will take on the role of a hero who must advance through progressively challenging missions and overcome increasingly powerful enemies to meet a satisfying conclusion. Gameplay and movement mechanics will also have been perfected for the final release based on feedback and iterations throughout the Early Access period.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In the first early-access release, STRIDE will consist of one arcade mode called “Endless Mode” which features endless level generation. In this mode, players will be able to try out all the mechanics of parkour such as jumping, climbing, wall-running, sliding, ziplining and hooking.
Our aim is to convey a real sense of height, danger, and dynamic movement as players navigate through the realistic environment of city rooftops. We set ourselves the task of realizing the real sensations of parkour from the comfort of your virtual reality headset.”

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

“We plan to release arcade modes at a single price. At initial release, the game will include only one of the three arcade modes. The other two arcade modes will be included for free in subsequent updates. We will exit Early Access with the release of the story mode as an update, after which its cost will increase. For those who purchase the games in early access, the story mode will be made available for free.”

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

“We are always glad to hear feedback from the community. We do our best to implement your ideas and address your concerns. We are present on all social networks, so please drop us a line!

About This Game



STRIDE will be released in two phases:

The first phase will be STRIDE Arcade and will consist of three modes, each released separately and in short succession. These are:

  • Endless mode. Infinite level generation provides unlimited challenging terrain
. This mode is available now.

  • Arena Mode. A spacious varied-terrain arena with waves of enemies. Perfect for practicing tricks and refining your shooting skills.
. Coming soon.

  • Time Chase Mode. Test your parkour-at-speed skills in a race against the clock.
. Coming soon.

The second phase of the release will be the complete story version of the game. We are working on this parallel with the Arcade Modes and will announce the official release date as soon as it’s confirmed.



Movement
Navigate city rooftops like a parkour pro. Grab ledges, jump from roof to roof, vault through windows, slide down cables: your possibilities are limited only by your attentiveness, creativity, and reactive skill.



Combat
The city is crawling with enemies who want you dead and your parkour skills will help you defeat them. You can sneak up on bad guys and dispatch them quietly, or fight openly in pitched battles. When there are too many bad guys to take on all at once, use the terrain to your advantage and pick them off one by one. No matter what your fighting style though, expert marksmanship is a must.



A note on motion sickness
Testing has shown that Stride VR does not cause significant motion sickness. The gameplay has been designed such that the player’s hand movements coincide with his avatar’s movements. This means that the load on the player’s vestibular apparatus is kept to a minimum. Although most people do feel minor uneasiness when they first start playing the game, as you master the controls, motion sickness disappears entirely.

Mature Content Description

The developers describe the content like this:

Realistic enemies aggressively attack the player using long-range weapons and through close-range combat. The player, similarly, can and must dispatch enemies in a variety of ways. The player can be destroyed by enemies and may also fall to his death from height.
