What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“It's been a while since we've thought first about Construction Playground: an interactive construction site that gives players the chance to operate exciting construction vehicles and tools - a childhood dream for many of us. Thanks to VR, this dream can now become reality. Getting feedback from the community has been very important for us in the past - and we want to continue asking for your feedback with this game as well.
We've created a first version of Construction Playground and want to go the final stretch of making the game together with our community. That's why we have decided to move the last months of development into Early Access: to receive even more feedback which we will apply to our game - feedback we appreciate and rely on.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“While we don't know an exact release date just yet, we're planning to add several smaller updates to the game and to finish it within a few months.”

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

“At the start of Early Access, the game will contain about 60 percent of the planned game. With each update, we're adding another chunk of content. These features are planned for the game:
• SITE TRAILER
Implemented in the first version: gives you access to the construction site and to other locations later on, depending on the DLC you have purchased. You can also adjust your settings here.

• TOWER CRANE
Implemented in the first version: you can turn the tower crane and raise/release its hook. That's how you move items from one spot to another.

• HAMMER
Implemented in the first version: a jackhammer or a heavy hammer that allows you to tear down or destroy a wall.
Planned for Early Access: you can move around and pick up the debris.

• BRICKLAYING
Implemented in the first version: you can build a wall by basic brick laying.
Planned for Early Access: bricks can "snap" to their correct location, additionally, you can use a trowel to add concrete.

• SOUND
Implemented in the first version: you can hear several standard sounds.
Planned for Early Access: additional sounds and a choice of atmospheric sounds in the settings.

• ADDITIONAL FEATURES
Planned for Early Access: you can choose whether you are on site during the day or at night. Hard hats are mandatory on a construction site, and you will be able to see which one you are wearing on screen. There will be different hard hat colors.

• TUTORIAL & USER GUIDE
Implemented in the first version: there's a brief user guide that explains the basics.
Planned for Early Access: an illustrated user guide will tell you how to use vehicles and tools.

• MISSIONS
Planned for Early Access: we want to include several missions of the basic game. Current ideas include, but are not limited to: set walls with the tower crane, distribute concrete via a concrete hopper, unload brick palettes, build walls, tear down specific walls and clear the debris.

• OPTIMIZED FOR VR HEADSETS
Supported in the first version: HTC Vive, Valve Index and Windows MR
Planned for Early Access: support and optimize HTC Vive, HTC Index and Windows MR, maybe Oculus headset.

• COMMUNITY IDEAS
We're looking forward to your ideas! We want to add everything that makes sense, adds fun to the game and that above all is achievable. Note that due to the game being in VR, we will most likely encounter some limits compared to "regular" 3D games, e.g. in the game performance.

• BUG FIXING & POLISHING
The first version is already bug fixed. During the Early Access phase, we will do additional bug fixing passes and we will add polish and a bit of magic to the game.
These features determine the range of the basic game. After its completion, we're eyeing additional DLC. Each DLC will contain new missions, most likely will lead you to new construction sites and of course will add new toys to play with, such as a wheel excavator, a mobile crane, a concrete mixer, a crawler excavator, a crawler crane, a crawler, maybe even a chainsaw and a harvester.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“You enter the construction site through a site trailer. You can control the tower crane, tear down a wall with a hammer and build a wall brick by brick. You won't be able to hear all sounds of the final game, not all features are implemented, there are no missions yet and not all VR headsets are supported at this point. Please refer to the previous section for a feature overview and check out our forum and its FAQs for many more details.”

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

“Yes. Construction Playground will cost less while in Early Access.”

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

“We want to add meaningful and feasible ideas into our game. We can also imagine surveys that determine which content is the most popular. We are thankful for each kind of feedback. Please don't hesitate to post your questions, ideas, thoughts and issues in our Steam forum - and of course, a little bit of praise is welcome, too. And while we can't promise that we will be able to reply to every message and every e-mail, rest assured that we read every single one of them.”

About This Game

Control tough vehicles, heavy machines and powerful tools on a vast construction site - in virtual reality. In the final version of the base game, you will even be able to control a tower crane, to use two types of hammers to tear down walls and to build walls brick by brick. All features will be completed and optimized during Early Access. Additionally, there will be missions for aspiring builders to complete.

In addition to the base game, more vehicles and construction machines will be available for purchase as DLC at a later time. Current ideas include, but are not limited to wheel excavators, vehicle cranes, concrete mixers, crawler cranes and excavators, caterpillars and potentially even chainsaws and harvesters. Some new content might lead to new scenarios. And of course, each DLC will contain new missions, too.

An overview of the features planned for the base game:
Using the tower crane, you can distribute building materials at the construction site. Move a concrete mixer, pallets of stones or prefabricated wall parts on your construction site. After demolishing a building with a hammer or a hammer drill, fill a container with the rubble. Build a wall, laying brick after brick, held together with mortar.

There is no better way than Construction Playground to let off steam playfully by demolishing a building, use massive construction vehicles and feel as if you're in the middle of a construction site - all in VR! It's an immersive VR experience on the construction site!
