What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“PunjiVR is currently only being developed by one person. I've worked on it nearly everyday since August of 2021 and have not even scraped the surface for my goals with the game. My ideas for the game are a plenty and whether it's me or the community, there proves to be no shortage of possibilities for it. While new features and toys are more exciting, polish, performance, and bug fixes will always be the top priority.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“PunjiVR will stay in Early Access for a long time, but a "full" release would be seen roughly in 3 or 4 years.”

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

“For future major goals, things like AI squad management, COOP, PVP, and Vehicles are planned.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“As of August, 2023, PunjiVR currently features 20 individual missions, over 20 weapons, and 3 flyable helicopters. Please refer to PunjiVR's update history for current information”

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

“The price may rise slightly after full release, but this is not set in stone at this time.”

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

“Frequent progress updates have and will continued to be posted on the game's Twitter, Reddit, and Discord. PunjiVR's official discord page is the most active place to interact with the developer and community”

About This Game

PunjiVR, a hardcore tactical shooter set during the Vietnam War

In PunjiVR, you will assume the role of different soldiers from all sides of the conflict throughout the game's many missions. Whether you're clearing out a Viet Cong tunnel, sabotaging US fortifications, setting up an ambush, or just taking part in a large battle, there is no shortage of excitement to be had.

Vietnam is a diverse land, with the mountainous Central Highlands, sprawling urban cities, and muggy swamps of the Mekong Delta just to name a few. PunjiVR strives to cover all of these environments and more, offering unique and unforgettable experiences for each. Experience the Vietnam War like never before.


PunjiVR aims to create a challenging and realistic experience. With death being only a bullet or two away, realistic bullet ballistics and penetration, deadly AI, and the occasional trap, a tactical mindset is a must.

  • Nearly everything is physics based, including the full player body, hands, interactables, AI, and more!
  • The wide array of firearms were designed to behave realistically while still allowing players unfamiliar with in-depth weapon mechanics to successfully operate them.
  • Adjustable difficulty settings, like player health and enemy presence, lets the player match their skill and/or comfort level to gameplay.

Tons of Toys, Tools, & Traps!

Sneak in with an smg, lay an ambush with traps and a belt-fed machine gun, or pick them off from a distance with a sniper rifle!

Bullet Ballistics

Just because there's something between you and the muzzle of your opponent's rifle doesn't mean you're safe! Bullets can penetrate objects and are dependent on the diameter, weight, and speed of the bullet as well as the angle on impact and material of the object. Not only do bullets pierce materials, they can also ricochet, drop over time and distance, and spread after impact. Just because the small handgun caliber was stopped by your cover doesn't mean the next rifle round will be!

There is no teleportation as a comfort option due to the way each level and gameplay as a whole was designed.

Please keep in mind that PunjiVR is still in Early Access. The game is constantly being worked on and improved. If you have any issues, please let me know through a steam forum post, or in a message at one of the links above.
