What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We think it is crucial to involve the players in the development process with gathering feedback on current maps, mechanics and most importantly weapons and in parallel improving game balance based on actual plays and player suggestions. In a VR game, fine tuning interactions to fit every player is also a must have and in a multiplayer game balance is key for long-term enjoyment.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“6 to 12 months.”

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

“Our goals are the following.

Content, content, content!
Having the gameplay foundations laid down we are able to focus on adding more content to the game in the form of new weapons, player customizations and maps of course. We would like to involve the community as much as we can in this process to deliver a polished game.

Improved Multiplayer experience with
- Optimized networking code
- Better matchmaking
- Official tournaments and ranked play
- Create all the iconic multiplayer game modes fitting an arcade shooter like Payload, CTF, Assault
- Make a crazy amount of new multiplayer maps. With the gameplay mechanics settled this will be a piece of cake
- Make the bots more clever

Additional solo/co-op experiences
- Better practice range with drones, with leaderboard
- Base defense game mode improvements
- Mini-challenges for those crazy about grapple acrobatics

In general
- More player abilities
- Open the game for modders and community items
- Eliminate all the bugs”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The gameplay foundations are laid down:
- Game is playable with all the available VR hardware and controllers
- We have added as much options and VR control customizations as we could think of
- Player abilities are ready to use (jump, double jump, wall jump, weapon gripping)
- Grappling hook is fully functional to lift you up
- More than 12 weapons eagerly await to get into battle (also with dual wield or melee)
- 5 maps are playable (and 3 more are in the works)
- 3 multiplayer game modes: Free For All, Team Deathmatch, Capture Point
- Working bots with basic AI
- Singleplayer practice range with drones to get yourself a 3D training field and sandbox to test the weapons
- There is also an experimental base defense mode for co-op fun
- Tutorial is work in progress”

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

“The Early Access price reflects the appreciation for those willing to support the game during its development. Our plan is to (at least) double the amount of content and services during the Early Access period and polish the game as much as possible for the full release so price may increase moderately on full release.”

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

“Please join the discussion about the game on Steam Discussions and our Discord server.
Discord: https://discord.gg/A4fUKDC

On both we will listen to every opinion and suggestion about VR interactions, control options and will implement solutions to make the game enjoyable for everyone and playable with every controller and/or playstyle.
What is more you can make suggestions about features or new features and if it fits the game or is popular with the community, we will definitely implement them!
Plus Beta tests: We are also planning on organizing beta test periods for new mechanics and maps before live updates and gathering feedback for improvements.

Go crazy on ideas, guys, make this the most awesome arcade VR shooter together!”

About This Game

VIRTUAL REALITY ARCADE SHOOTER

Built from the ground up for virtual reality, Grapple Tournament is a thrilling VR arcade shooter where you can enjoy movement freedom using your 3D maneuver abilities and your grappling hook while fighting with a wide variety of multifunctional weapons (even dual wielding) in various multiplayer game modes and co-op challenges through an alluring stylized world.


Grapple. Shoot. Score. Master the vertical combat.

3D MOVEMENT FREEDOM

Run, jump and double jump to get yourself into position, wall jump to evade incoming harm, pull yourself up with the grappling hook to get the high ground or grapple-swing around corners to surprise your enemies. Learn how to chain these abilities with your 3D maneuvering gear to perform untraceable movement combos and outsmart your enemies like never before in a VR game! Maps are specifically designed with vertically in mind to get the most out of it.

MULTIFUNCTIONAL WEAPONS

More than 12 weapons eagerly await to get into battle under your command. From the common mechanical guns through the plasma pistols to the energy rifles, single-fire or automatic, instant shot or projectile based, you can have everything.


Target-following laser? Shotguns and grenade launchers? You got them. Rockets? Let them rain! Your VR dream is to become a turret with massive firepower? Go with dual miniguns! Double handed weapons have both primary and secondary fire modes letting you choose the perfect reaction for any situation. By the way you always have your melee weapon - the energy blade - on your side. You know, for slicing cake.

Play the game any way you like, use the grappling hook with a weapon or dual wield any weapon combination. Mobility versus firepower. Your call.

Did we mention that you can also summon an energy bow and shoot an arrow any time?

MULTIPLAYER

Multiplayer is the heart of the Tournament. Starting individually or with your friends, matchmaking will find you worthy opponents and let you fight in various game modes on engaging, stylized maps which were created with verticality in mind. The currently available game modes are:


  • Free For All: Everyone against everyone, up to 6 players. It can be messy and chaotic but you just can’t stop until you win. Can you be the very best on your own?
  • Team Deathmatch: Fast-paced, frantic 3v3 combat. Get your weapons and defeat the enemy team with pure skill or finesse. Teamwork is essential here: shield your allies, assist in attacks and if all is critical, heal your teammates.
  • Capture Point: Strategic point capture mode to spice up 3v3 team battles. Stay in the point areas to capture them and utilize all your arsenal to keep them at all cost. The team with the most points wins.

During multiplayer you will visit a plethora of carefully crafted arenas, both outdoors and closed space maps for your all-terrain grapple experience. From sci-fi factories through cave excavations to japanese temples or greek monuments and more. You'll certainly find some maps to your liking.

Bots: Feel free to play with bots to master your skills or have some light-hearted fun.

Dedicated servers and player created servers are both available.

PRACTICE RANGE

Yeah, we have this too for 3D training purposes. With drones... with hats. You can try all the weapons in sandbox mode here.

Customize your character to your liking with crazy hats and accessories.
