What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We intend to offer an alpha build of the game for free through Steam Playtest. This allows you to get involved in our development journey and lets you tell us what you like or dislike about the game, as we build upon it over the next year. You are also free to make video footages or live broadcasts to share them on Youtube, Twitch, TikTok, Instagram, Twitter, or any other socials throughout this process.

At key development points, we will be updating the Playtest build with new content including enemy types, skills, ability combinations, and more. Leading up to the target release period in Q3 2022, we are fully committed to iterating on our final vision of Hellsweeper together with you, the community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning to launch the game officially toward the 3rd quarter of 2022, so we would be removing the Playtest build by then.”

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

“The purpose of releasing the alpha build is to get constructive feedback from gamers about gameplay and bugs. Obviously it will be a much watered down version compared to the full game, but you would be able to experience many of the core features and experience a reasonable amount of the weaponry, skills and enemies we have in store for you.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Alpha is a watered down version of the full game but loaded with enough core mechanics to let you get a good feel of Hellsweeper VR.

Ultimately the full game will have the following -

Roguelike Mode - The main game mode where players encounter randomly assigned locations, weapons, skills and increasingly challenging enemies as they make their way to the final destination to meet the final boss. Every run is different and every experience is unique.

Sandbox Mode - This game mode is for players who prefer more certainty in how they play the game. Players get to select the arena, mission style and difficulty level they want to challenge. They also get to pick their preferred weapons and abilities.

Multiplayer Mode - Players can go on Co-Op missions or fight each other in PVP contests.

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

“The Playtest build will be entirely free to opt into and play during the period of Early Access. Our goal is to collect data and feedback on making a better game during this period.

The game will only be priced upon release at Q3 2022.”

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

-----------------


Hellsweeper VR is best described as a roguelike first person combat simulator. Traverse the netherworld. Gain mastery of a wide range of weapons and elemental magic. Keep upgrading and enjoy unlimited replayability as you lay waste to the scumbags of hell as an undead immortal.

Hellsweeper VR came about from our desire to improve on what made our first game, Sairento VR, a huge hit with fans. We wanted to build upon a core tenet of Sairento - an intense no holds barred locomotion system that offered wall-running, power-sliding, backflips and more - all while improving its arcade-style action with semi realistic physics, allowing you to pull off even crazier moves. Juggle enemies in the air. Lop off a limb and use it as a club. Land on an enemy and use them as a bloody surfboard - yes, you read that right.


Combat is a core feature of Hellsweeper VR. At the most basic level, you can summon and wield various tools of destruction. Cleave through an undead horde with a claymore. Snipe down flying foes from a distance with an antique rifle. Turn a foe into a pincushion by summoning a salvo of piercing ice shards. Group enemies together with a gravitational vortex.

Advanced players however, can also adeptly combine both to greater effect. Enchant an ordinary battle-axe into a frost-imbued one, allowing you to chill an enemy on hit. Transmute an arrow with fire, turning it into an explosive projectile. Merge flame and ice to channel a beam of pure arcane energy, cutting through swathes of minions with ease.

Upgrade and customize your skills, and experiment with unique variations of abilities to discover what being a Hellsweeper really means to you.


You have absolute control over your mobility across the battlefield. Clever players will use the environments to their advantage, wallrunning past a heavily controlled area or aerial dashing to weave in and out of engagement range. Threats come in all shapes and sizes.


Although we're not launching Hellsweeper VR as an Early Access title, we are opening up a pre-alpha Playtest of the game for free. We want to get the community involved early in our dev journey, and we want to hear your feedback and suggestions.
