What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The Liminal Platform has already been released on Oculus Quest and Oculus Go, earning popularity among VR users. Opening the platform to Steam Early Access will allow us to refine the platform for PC users and optimise UI and UX based on user feedback. Insight from platform users will also help us in creating new features, polishing existing features and expanding our selection of immersive experiences in a way that is welcomed by Steam’s gaming community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We intend to keep the Liminal platform available in Early Access for a period of around 3 months.”

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

“We are always working on new experiences and categories to add to the platform regularly. Our goal is to introduce a brand new experiences every couple of weeks and we will be adding new features and functionality over time”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core application and functionality has been implemented. At this stage, our focus is optimisation of UX and polishing of gameplay elements. With over 32 experiences across 4 categories (Calm, Energy, Awe and Pain Relief), now is a great time for users to embrace the Liminal platform and take control of how they feel and perform.”

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

“The Liminal platform will be available for free both during and after Early Access. Users who sign up during Early Access will be awarded a bonus 2000 credits, allowing them to explore more experiences on the platform. An optional paid subscription will be introduced upon official launch.”

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

“Liminal has a dedicated Partnership Program, collaborating with a global network of VR developers, schools and universities who contribute experiences to the platform. Users who register an account with Liminal can earn credits by participating in short VR experiments that test a range of VR design methodologies (‘The Lab’). The results are then incorporated into our ‘Psych Docs’ which are accessible by Liminal partners and inform the creation of new experiences for the platform. We strongly value feedback from users in any form, including via email (, reviews and social media. This has always played a significant role in furthering the development process and improving user experience.”

There are currently four categories of experience: Calm, Energy, Pain Relief and Awe with new content and more categories to be released over time.

Calming experiences are relaxing and beautiful, energizing experiences fun and invigorating, pain relief experiences are designed to make you more comfortable and awe experiences will leave you speechless.

We track and display how effective each experience is based on user feedback so you can see how it has affected others.
