What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The Callisto is meant to expand over time, with more content based on player feedback and the clever alternate solutions that players may discover. We want to share the experience of this game's amazing visuals and aesthetic and polish the immersive quality of the game over time.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are striving to get The Callisto out of Early Access in the summer of 2023.”

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

“We want the puzzles in the game to have many different solutions, and give the interactions between characters more dynamic interactions. Each character in the game will have their own impact on the main mystery and other side plots running throughout the Callisto investigation.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Callisto's main plotline and several side plotlines are fully playable with the player able to discover several of the possible endings. The player can explore nearly the entire hotel, and replay the game to solve some of the game's puzzles in new and unique ways. The audio and visual experience of the game is already very well-polished and ready for players to experience.”

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

“We do not anticipate the price of the game to change after release. We want to keep giving players more content at the same great price.”

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

“The way the Community becomes involved in the Callisto's mystery will truly change the way our puzzles work. Our players are clever, and we want to match their cleverness with thought-provoking, interesting solutions. Throughout the closed alpha of the game many of the game's puzzles changed solely from players' clever feedback and we want to keep that experience going. Our community will have a great impact on the way the game continues to develop over time.”

About This Game

At a luxury hotel on Jupiter's second-largest moon, a political figure was murdered along with three others.

You'll play as an interstellar detective tasked with solving a murder on Jupiter's second-largest moon. Explore the crime scene, collect evidence, and interview witnesses to uncover the secrets behind the events leading up to the crime. With a full voice cast and incredible audio and sound design, Cold Start: The Callisto offers a fully immersive and atmospheric experience.

Based on the lore of the popular tabletop RPG, Cold Start, this VR game combines the puzzles of an escape room with the intrigue of a murder mystery to create a one-of-a-kind experience. Discover the seedy history of The Callisto Hotel, learn about the staff and guests' backroom connections, and explore the underground financiers of this remote paradise.

Get ready to immerse yourself in a dystopian sci-fi future and solve the mystery...and then, get out of the hotel alive.
