What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Connect Chat is an app where you can be anyone you want, and communicate with people any way you want. While there are many social VR apps out on the market, there is yet to be one that is designed around the concept of users adopting their avatars’ appearances and creating a new identity for themselves.
Connect Chat was created for people to create and manage their alternate identities in VR.
However, we still do not know what all of that entails, and believe that we will only be able to find these answers through nurturing a healthy user community, and continually communicating with them.
Therefore, we have decided to release Connect Chat on early access. Our features are still limited, but we hope that you take interest in our vision and help us out along the way.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“There are many social VR apps available today, but the market is still relatively small.
We hope to turn Connect Chat into a highly polished app before VR devices become a part of everyone's life. Our current goal is to add new worlds to the app by Q1 of 2022. We will also be adding and improving features over the next couple of years, so there will be an update to the app once every two to three months. We will be working hard to complete the app and will always be communicating with our users.”

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

“Connect Chat aims to be a free and casual social communication service. For the near future, we are planning on adding features that improve the user experience. In Early Access, users will be able to enter small chatrooms and chat with other users using their 3D avatars. Later down the road, we will be adding chatrooms that can house a large amount of users at once, features that will allow Connect Chat to be used as a large-scale event platform, streaming capabilities, and much more. As our roadmap is long and winding, we may take some detours on the way, but our ultimate goal is to create a fun and easily accessible Virtual experience.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, Connect Chat allows users to enter small chatrooms, where they can communicate with other users using their 3D avatars. Our features are still rather bare-bones, so we’d love to hear from veterans in the VR community on what features we should add in the future.”

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

“Connect Chat is currently free to play, and will be free to play for the foreseeable future.”

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

“Connect Chat is a social communication app for the DMM VR Connect platform.
You can join the DMM VR Connect Discord server to talk about Connect Chat with other users, as well as give feedback to the dev team.

Our goal is to develop Connect Chat as a fun tool for socializing in VR by continuing to communicate with our community.”
