What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're a really small company and ARK-ADE is our first videogame. None of us has any experience in the gaming industry. ARK-ADE is a big game for us, we need to learn from our mistakes, early access is a way to constantly receive valuable feedback about the game, collaborate with our player and finally make the best game we can.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Probably one year, it depends of course on the feedback we'll receive from the players and on how much more content we decide to add in the final version of the game.”

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

“We plan to add more content such as more levels, weapons, and game modes. New modular arms for ADE (our final boss) and a bit of lore to the game. We already plan to add multiplayer to the game and that will definetly take much of our time the year after release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is already fully playable, we have had our demo out for months now and everything is working just fine. All 7 level are there already with 7 bossfights. The 6 weapons are already fully working, We have 4 human enemies, 3 drones and 3 turrets. feature wise the game is 80% complete and content wise is 70% complete.”

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

“No definitive plans here yet, but it is likely that the price will be increased over the course of the Early Access period.”

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

“We currently use our Discord server, Steam forums and reddit as our primary ways to talk to our community. As we not experts in field Players feedback has already been an important part of the game development. Upcoming changes are openly discussed with the community for early feedback. A closed test-group of players have access to the latest builds of the game and work closely with our team. The test-group evaluates the new features and changes before they are released publicly.”

About This Game

Have you ever dreamt about being inside an old Arcade Machine?

Inspired by the major 80’s Pop Culture references ARK-ADE harmonizes the old fast-paced Run ‘n’ Gun games with the new era of VR technology, diving you into an iconic setting to strafe enemies, protect ARK and defeat ADE.



You can choose between Free Locomotion, Dash or Blink Teleport Movement to avoid motion sickness. We know that not everyone has what is called "VR legs", should you not be comfortable with the default locomotion method you can always switch to one the others in the option menu.


Plunge into the nostalgic 80’s Low-poly Sci-Fi setting. Dune, Stargate, Blade Runner, Tron, Star Wars, Idiana Jones, Space Invaders, R-Type are just some of the revered 80s sci-fi movies and videogames that inspired the setting of the game.


Protect ARK from ADE’s army: it's the key to save humanity, the only thing that could change the future of our race forever. Some enemies will focus solely on him, you and ARK share the save life, defend it at all costs.


"This is my rifle, this is my gun, this is for fighting and this is for fun" Just one gun, a very powerful weapon that will morph into anything you need to defeat ADE and save the world will accompany you all the game long.


Parts of the level are destructible. Be careful while choosing a cover; it might not last long enough to save you from ADE's army. On the other hand, it may also be a chance to unlock new paths to defeat ADE.


Collect all the secrets and unlock all achievements for the ultimate challange!

  • Shoot to the beat of our original soundtrack


Four friends, three cats, one castle (which is actually a rented house and that's where the name of the company comes from) and an old sick passion for gaming. The idea of making a videogame has been with us for a long time, after a few years just thinking about it we took some time off our actual jobs and we are finally trying to follow our dream. So here it starts our journey with ARK-ADE, our first videogame.

We hope you enjoy playing it as much as we enjoyed making it.
