What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Project META is a huge undertaking by a solo developer, and the game incorporates several complicated systems that all need to work together seamlessly, including Active Ragdolls, AI, physics-based combat, full body avatars, and destructible environments. Rather than wait another 1-2 years before the entire base game is ready, I want the players to enjoy it sooner and play a large part in the growth and development of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Project META will be in Early Access for at least the next year, but probably longer. This completely depends on the amount of time I can dedicate to it. If the game takes off in the way I'm hoping for, I can dedicate myself to working on the game full time and it will be updated much more quickly.”

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

“The Early Access version will include the full game up to that point, with all finished power sets, weapons, interactions, levels, events, and enemies as they are developed, with the possibility of re-works as suggested by the community.

For the Full Release, I plan on having a single-player campaign with a storyline and natural progression from the start. This includes a semi-open world environment, several attached environments that can be accessed over time, multiple groups of enemies with their own abilities, strengths & weaknesses, and bosses, new weapons and gadgets to use, and new power sets to discover and play with.

The game will also receive updates after the game leaves early access, which will expand on all of the features mentioned above. With enough time, I would also like to eventually include:

  • Character Creation - Change the appearance of your VR avatar, including costume pieces.
  • Power Modification - Alter your powers in terms of aesthetics, feel, and functionality.
  • Mod Support - Community-made weapons, powers, levels, challenges, and enemies.
  • New Gameplay Modes - Survival Gauntlets, Time Trials, Races, and Challenges.
  • Steam Achievements
  • Voiced Dialogue
  • Multiplayer

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version is currently a combat sandbox with some open-world traversal mechanics including flying, climbing, and swinging. Players can jump into any available level, start waves of physics-based enemies, engage in hand-to-hand combat, and continue to fight and experiment with the different available powers. Melee weapons and firearms will be added shortly.”

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

“The price may increase somewhat once it does release from Early Access, but ONLY once I feel confident that the content and quality of the game is worth it. Until that time, it will stay at the same price.”

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

“The community will play a huge part in development, and I plan on taking as much feedback as possible in order to improve general gameplay, controls, combat, super powers, enemies, AI, and more. There is already an active Discord community that has contributed to several features and tweaks to the game, and I hope to continue that as much as possible.

The Discord for Project META is growing quickly and is where I will be most active to listen and respond to questions, feedback, suggestions, bugs, and more.”
