What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“To share how awesome Dark Rides are in VR even if the story of immersion is 1/3 complete so far. This is Act 1 of 3 and is a 14.5 minute detailed dark ride that proves Virtual Reality is very suitable for dark rides. While 14.5 minutes is among the longer dark rides 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 14.5 mins. They all want MORE and more is coming. Today, the full Act 1: Immersion Origins, is complete, but via your early access, support we not only hope to get your feedback, but also will use your support to drive VR dark rides forward. Please leave a review of contact us via our support email address.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We have developed Dark Ride Engine 1.0 and are building the remaining 2 Acts of this ride on this tech which we estimate will take another 12-24 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 in terms of overall experience.”

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 14.5 minute Act 1 of 3. This early access ride 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 Act 1: Immersion Origins. That is stories around the fire, cave paintings, clay tablets, papyrus, paper, wood block printing, the print press and theatre. 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 each act is complete the price will go up for new guests. Once all 3 acts have been completed the final price will be set and the ride will exit early access.”
