What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We love what we do and have passion for VR games, so we work tirelessly to put together meaningful experience with varied and exciting gameplay. For the further development, any feedback from the community is welcome - it would help us see more clear about which features should be implemented and improved. We are happy to participate in early access to make our beloved game better and better, in a way most players would find enjoyable.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“For us, quality wins over quantity. As soon as the project reaches an overall state that would feel truly whole and complete, polished and thought-out, we would be proud of to call it "done" and leave early access. For this, our estimate is between 1 and 2 years, based on future feedback.”

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

“Besides the general polishment of existing and in-development features, UI, gameplay and visual-vise, we will also plan on adding another game-mode, the "Adventure mode", which is a progressive version of the arcade mode, in which you carry over your progression between the levels you're randomly thrown onto.
Additionally, new content like customization-expansions, collectibles, new realms, so new enemies, bosses, skills will be added too, with time. Cooperative multiplayer and a leader-board system for arcade mode is also on the drawing board - and of course, the story of our hero will continue in Campaign mode!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The gameplay elements and most of the game mechanics are already implemented. The game has 2 campaign maps, which teach the basic mechanics and tactics and 3 arcade maps for the rogue-like gameplay mentioned earlier, presenting a different experience every time you play it.
There are 56 skills to choose from currently, which makes every run different from each other, supporting a varied and customizable experience for the players. The already existing realms pose different threats, in form of varied enemy types (offensive, defensive, ranged, utility, magical etc.), environments, contraptions and layouts, which will all alter the approach the player might choose when fighting in them.”

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

“As mentioned before, we are planning to add much more content during the development, and finalize a lot of existing features, with time, the final price may increase accordingly when we leave early acces.”

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

“To us, community feedback and engagement is paramount - it's this, based on which we would like to continue and prioritize the stages and features of the development. The focus should be on things the players want the most, the things they are most interested in.
For this reason, we are going to create a discord platform, where people can voice their opinion, ideas, feedback and participate in surveys and maybe community events and activities in the future.
Besides that, we will also be attentive to the Steam-page of the game, both in terms of reviews and community activity, so Steam forums and discussion pages can also be good places to send your feedback to, or report issues.
Please feel free also, to contact us about your ideas and provide feedback via info@rustipipesgames.com email address.

If you enjoyed the game, please also voice your satisfaction in the reviews, comments or you can send a short "good job" message to us to the mentioned address - it is also greatly appreciated!”

About This Game

OUR WORLD

In times of great peril, even Gods might need the help of mortals. In such times, in service to their people, mere hunters - just like you - must harden themselves in battle to become legendary archers.

Archers, who are worthy of challenging not just brigands, fierce warriors or monstrous mythological creatures but even dragons!

Fight your way through the realms of north mythology to complete the saga, and reveal the secrets of the Ashen Arrow!

Defend your base with the help of your bow, various arrow-types, traps, tactics and modifiers. Combine your wits and skills, to counter the numerous and varied enemies attacking your home!

Prove yourself to the gods and receive their blessings and relics to help your way through the adventures, and fulfill your destiny by stopping Ragnarök!

DESIGN

Ashen Arrows is a rouge-like wave-defense first-person VR adventure-game, where the player defends their base from continuous waves of varied enemies as an Archer. Use different skills, arrows, modifiers from your roster, and choose different approaches to deal with your foes - the possibilities are endless - every round, every run is different! So go for the "god-run", or just play through the atmospheric, narrated story mode's first maps, introducing the saga of a heroic hunter, and their mighty quest towards the end of the world!

EARLY ACCESS FEATURES

- Campaign mode -
With two, narrated, scenic tutorial maps - teaching the basics of movement and combat, game-mechanics and tactics - the players are introduced to the story of a heroic hunter and their mighty quest, soon to be unfold in further updates as the game improves and grows.

- Arcade mode -
This mode currently features 3 maps of different realms from north mythology, but will include much more in further updates - It focuses on infinite replayability, thanks to the rougelike elements incorporated into the gameplay, consisting of randomized skill-pool, loot, enemies, modifiers and so on. Go for the "god-run"!

- Player customization -
The players are able to customize their banners, with some colors, icons and borders - soon to be widened with a range of new, collectible customizations, probably even for bows and hands as well! Get them all to find your style!

- Varied options for gameplay -
Different skills and modifier for your bow help achieve a different play-style every run!
Utilize passive defense like barricades, traps, and base-repairing skills to stabilize your progress.
Ask the Gods for their favor, and they shall aid you in form of blessings and effects based on chance, potentially giving the upper edge in tight situations.
Alter the battleground with environmentals like barrels, fire or lightning for your advantage - this range of reactive environment might also be expanded in the future!
Different maps feature different enemies - discover and use counter-tactics against them, to adapt best to the current situation!
