What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our goal with early access is to get feedback about the game, identify the improvable points and implement them. That will shape how the game will progress. We will complete and deliver the game with or without early access. We have sufficient experience and resources for this. Our goal with early access is to make the final version of our game perfect and fully so we can provide the best product as much as possible depending on the players' expectations.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will remain in early access until the full version is released. We plan to make the game stay in Early access for 3 months.”

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

“The game consists of a forest level with 30 minutes of gameplay. There are currently 2 types of firearms player can use. Enemies are zombies and a psycopath survivor that attack us in the game. The game will be published in English and Turkish. This version is available for only PC users with VR devices.

In the full version, we plan to construct the remaining levels of the campaign and polish the shooting mechanics so the customers can enjoy the game more. In the meantime, we also aim to bring the game more optimized with better visuals in the finished version because we are aware of the VR hardware limitations.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The early access version is ready to play the intro of the campaign, experience the graphics and test the gameplay mechanics.”

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

“Yes, there will be different pricing. We aim to have a much longer gameplay with better mechanics.
That's the reason why the full version will be available at a higher price.”

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

“Information and feedbacks will be requested from the community during development through social media accounts. We plan to be active on Steam Community articles so we can help the players about any problems or questions.”
