What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Liekos Studio has spent the last three years developing a complex digital twin that provides real-world training to veterinarians. Early on, we realized that our veterinary users enjoyed playing VetVR as much as they liked training with it. Since then, we have striven to create an application that is as entertaining as it is educational.

We have decided to release our game as early access so that we can incorporate feedback from our audience to make the best final product. Through our demo alone we have learned a lot about the features, scenarios, and animals our users would most like to see. We have incorporated that feedback into numerous levels/scenarios already in development but are eager to continue to learn what makes a phenomenal simulation game/VR training. We knew the best way to achieve this would be to open a discussion with our end users and give them access to our game while we are in the final development phase.

Early access gives us the opportunity to fine-tune our future levels to the interests and needs of our audience. Since our studio is based in a university setting, it also allows our researchers to study VR training and development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our full version is planned to be available in Q3 2024. We hope to release three new levels every two months, in each case responding to users' input and requests.”

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

“While the foundation is the same, we plan to include around 21 new levels of increasing complexity. These levels will introduce new veterinary techniques not currently available and will incorporate user feedback regarding what our audience is most interested in experiencing. The additional levels will be built off of skills and training taught in our early access version for a fully immersive, story-rich experience.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version is a solidly playable game, with around 2 hours of straight VR playthrough, and an open sandbox lobby with which to explore immersive, interactive VR.”

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

“We plan to increase the price of the game once it exits early access and after having added additional features and content based on your feedback. This price increase will only affect new players, so folks who purchase the game during early access will save money.”

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

“We will be regularly posting on Steam's community page and have opened a Reddit and Discord channel dedicated to VetVR. Through those forums, as well as our social media, we will be posting game updates and open discussions on what features, animals, and scenarios our users want to see next. As our user feedback continues to grow, we may post polls to allow the community to determine what content gets worked on first and what requests become part of the final game. We are also working directly with users through all forums as well as our website to collect bug reports, implement fixes, and continue to polish our game. Finally, since Liekos Studios’ leadership team is based at a public land-grant university, we are accessible via email if people are interested in searching us out directly. We are also available through social media DM’s with slightly slower response times.”

About This Game

This is an Early Access version of 'VetVR Veterinary Simulator' being developed by a small but passionate indie studio led by real veterinarians. We're developing this game in association with the Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital and are excited to incorporate your feedback into the final game. Tell us what you think in our Community Hub!

You got hired straight out of vet school. Your new employer recognized your talent and love for animals, so they've chosen you to help them launch their brand-new vet clinic! Show them everything you’ve learned by providing gold star care to a variety of tailed and scaled clients.

Diagnose and treat complex medical conditions, mysterious injuries, and emergency scenarios! Determine what is wrong with your patient based on the animal’s behavior, medical reports, and real-world data such as X-rays and blood tests. Find the right treatments and remember that each decision will positively or negatively impact your patient.

Brush up on all your veterinary fundamentals by playing through numerous training levels created by real-life DVM, MSc, PhD Veterinarians. Grow your confidence as a veterinarian regardless of previous knowledge levels and practice making split-second decisions that affect the life or death of your animal patient. Practice using tools, requesting tests, reading charts, and administering drugs to treat and heal animals in various levels of need. Each patient will require real veterinary logic and test your skills. When mistakes are made, rest easy knowing you can restart a scenario at any time.

As you complete both high and low-intensity scenarios, don’t forget to look around. You might be surprised by what you find. Discover fun Easter eggs, unlock hidden games, and be rewarded with new and exotic animal cases. Between saving lives, take some time to relax in the lobby and play fetch with the clinic mascot, Bruce. Be careful letting him around the snack bar though, he has a reputation for stealing anything with a carb in it.

As you successfully treat everything from minor wounds to unidentified patient illnesses, you will find that your work is really having an impact. Customers are talking about the clinic and even recommending it to others. They’re especially fond of your care for their pets and it seems like the harder you work, the more your clinic’s reputation grows. Get rewarded by unlocking new and exciting scenarios! Did someone say the local zoo was looking for more vets in the area to work with? I guess we’ll find out!
