What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Given that a good rogue-like/-lite game is a thoroughly calibrated mix of complex systems (combat, progression, narrative), Early Access has become the gold standard for developing such games. Risk of Rain, Dead Cells, Hades - the most notable representatives of the genre proved the sustainability of this approach.

Opening up a development cycle early will help us figure out what aspects of the game players are really responding to, and nip any design issues in the bud.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The EA period will take about 6 months of regular updates before the full 1.0 release.”

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

“More biomes, new enemies and bosses. As well as weapons, upgrades, and other VR-centric quantity and quality content updates depending on player feedback and requests.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All core game systems are ready and fully playable.

Content-wise, the EA version of the game features:
5 types of enemies and a multi phase boss fight
5 unique VR-centric weapons
3 combinable gems (superpowers), each with a stronger version of itself
25+buffs and upgrades, varying from one run to another
25+cross-run upgrades
Player hub
Secret rooms
Story-driven tutorial
Narrative elements
Procedurally generated locations

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

“We may gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

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

“During the demo festival, we received a lot of extremely useful feedback and suggestions from you guys, and decided to stick to this model into further development. You can expect iterative development with regular beta testing and adding/balancing content based on player feedback.”

About This Game



OUTLIER is a roguelite adventure VR game featuring FPS and RPG elements. Players can control and mix various abilities, utilize an array of weapons, and explore breathtaking worlds, making for a diverse and progressive gameplay experience.

You are a captain of one of the last human arks. In search of a new home for humanity, your vessel was sucked into a black hole. From your position beyond space and time, you witness an unknown race devastating what looks like a habitable solar system. The unknown physics of the black hole endow you with mysterious powers and allow you to exist in parallel worlds. Live, die, and repeat in your quest to conquer at least one of these worlds in the name of mankind.

Game Features


• Elaborate, yet randomized level generation
Every level is procedurally generated. This means each new restart is a brand-new experience for the player. You will meet different characters and experience new artifacts, weapons, and story pieces. Your unique abilities build across the game’s even in a single game session.



• Making the most of VR
The advanced controls integrate a wide range of movements. As you tactically break your way through the enemy hordes and navigate the complex terrain, you’ll need to use your body to cast artifact powers, slam enemies with surrounding objects, cut them into pieces, dodge their attacks, hide behind objects, jump, dash, and more.

• Micro and macro player progression
The combination of power-ups and ability modifiers makes for different experiences. Combine your spells together to get new ones: mix a fireball and a telekinetic push to acquire both an explosive fireball and a fire push. Shape your character and armory between the runs to construct diverse builds for any playstyle."

• Explore a looped Sci-Fi world
The solar system after alien race expansion is a harsh place, full of harsher occupants. As you progress through each planet, random events and new storyline pieces will help you to infiltrate the black hole and fight back against the intruders. Interconnected levels drive you to explore your surroundings, full of breathtaking landscapes and mysteries like secret rooms, hidden passages, and artifacts.

The decisions you make through each life and death cycle provide for a story that is uniquely tailored to each player.

Mature Content Description

The developers describe the content like this:

Realistic enemies aggressively attack the player using long-range weapons and through close-range combat. The player, similarly, can and must dispatch enemies in a variety of ways. The player can be destroyed by enemies
