What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“To share how awesome Dark Rides are in VR even if we are not 100% complete yet. This is a 10 minute Pilot dark ride that proves Virtual Reality is very suitable for dark rides. While 10 minutes is the average length of a dark ride at a theme park, the goal of this ride is 25-35 minutes total as we are not limited by budget and physical space that say a Disney Imagineer is. Every Imagineer dreams of a ride canvas as big as VR can offer and as such we have chosen to go all the way with our first ride. Maybe 25-35 minutes is too long, but feedback has indicated that most are disappointed when the ride ends at 10 mins. They all want MORE and more is coming. Today all we have is the 10 minute Pilot, but it will give you the early access tease we know some are looking for and will allow you to share your feedback with us via our website Metaverse Adventures.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We have developed Dark Ride Engine 1.0 and are building the rest of the ride on this tech which we estimate will take another 12-18 months to complete. That said, quality and not timeline is our priority as we tend to fuss over every detail until it is as perfect as it can get. Take a look for yourself and let us know if we are hitting your quality targets.”

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

“The full ride will feature the complete history of humanities quest for ever deeper immersion and will be 25-35 minutes in length versus the current 10 minute Pilot. This early access pilot depicts the early years of immersion whereas the full ride will show more recent innovations such as film, TV, games and the Internet, plus the emerging immersive tech of today and where it is all going tomoor. It is an exciting story and one that no matter your view of the world, it is clear we are going, Into the Metaverse.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently the ride shows the early years of immersion. That is stories around the fire, cave paintings, clay tablets, papyrus, paper, wood block printing and the print press. Once the ride is fully developed there will be further scenes depicting theater, photography, cinema, radio, television, computers, games, and of course the emerging immersive technologies of today and tomorrow. This is a BIG story to share as humanity is going Into the Metaverse.”

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

“Once the ride is complete, the ride will be for a fee and will exit early access.”
