What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Vidya Poker is fully playable! 💪😎👌
As a solo dev, I could really use YOUR help suggesting any ways the game can be made more fun and functional or reporting any issues you experience!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I expect 1-3 months, but 6 months maximum.”

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

Here are some of the core stuff I am working on:
  • Integrating Steam stuff like achievements and comparing your stats to your Steam friends'.
  • Settings to adjust the fidelity of the game will be implemented:
    • Toggling physics simulation
    • Toggling the display of visual elements (companion Toon, fireworks, fire, space clouds, etc)
    • Rendering quality of assets
  • Level selection / customization?
  • More card and companion Toon skins?

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Please reference the About This Game section bellow for the current state of the game.”

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

“Price may increase moderately when we release.”

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

“I will be very active in the Community message board as well as on YouTube and Twitter.”

Streamer Mode

Sets background in-game to solid green. This allows you to color-key the green out and make it transparent in your streaming/video recording software for overlaying over other content!

I also implemented user controlled options to hide the Toon and Payout/Coins UI elements, to make Streamer Mode even cleaner!

About This Game

The video poker experience you know and love from gas stations all across Nevada, now available in 3D for your PC!

  • No gambling of real world currency is done in this game. This is just for fun and practice.
  • Earn Diamonds with a winning hand that includes an Ace card or when in a hot-streak by winning consecutively!
  • Spend Diamonds to unlock over 20 companion Toons, as well as skins for them and the cards!
  • Lose too many times in a row, to enter into a cold-streak :(

Don't know how to play video poker?

That's OK! Playing Vidya Poker is simple:
  • Five cards are dealt.
  • Hold the cards that you want to keep.
  • Draw new, replacement cards.
  • The score of the hand is then finalized and paid out with rewards!
There are many ways to earn a winning hand, and all are listed in the Payout Table in the bottom left side of the game window. Four different Poker Types are available to choose that modify the payout multipliers of winning hands.

Winning hands are listed inside the game and in the Guide posted in the Community Hub section for Vidya Poker! Also, you could search for "vidya poker rules" in a search engine!

Visual options for streamers and creators!

If you wanted to overlay the Vidya Poker gameplay over your other content, there are options to do that on-the-fly.

Vidya Poker is solo developed by me, coolnames!

This has been a passion project of mine for over a year, eating up all of my free-time outside of my day-job.
Years ago, I spent many fun nights at casinos and bars, hanging out with friends, playing video poker. The gameplay is so simple and fast, I wanted to create Vidya Poker as a game that I could play while listening to a podcast or watching a Twitch stream.
I really like playing it, and hope you do too!
