What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I still have a large amount of content I hope to add to Jank Cube over the course of time to give more sandbox potential to the game. However I want to to put it out on steam ahead of time to reach a larger base of players to ascertain a larger amount of feedback and ideas on what i could add. I hope early access will allow me to help Jank Cube be a product equally for the players as it is for me, by taking in their ideas to help form the finished product.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I anticipate a good few months but likely under a year.”

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

“In the current version there is 8 sandbox maps of varying sizes. In the finished game I hope to have an additional 3 sandbox maps and a small story centered mini-campaign to explain the hidden story within Jank Cube.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All content currently in the game is fully playable, and anything from this point forward will be additional content.
You can refer to the about this section for more insight as to available content in the game.”

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

“As of right now I do plan on a mild increase in price once the game is fully ready.”

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

“I have a discord server I am always available in and am always taking feedback from the community and players.”

About This Game

Jank Cube VR is an experimental physics based virtual reality game based around taking the concept of stacking blocks for amusement, and evolving it using physics and VR.

In Jank Cube VR you will encounter a number of fun physics based interactables, including but not limited to:
Ragdolls: Fully physics based humanoid ragdolls
Spheres: Spheres of different shapes, sizes and weights
Cones: Cones each with unique materials
Oblongs: Elongated cubes
Cylinders: Cylinders with varying shapes weights and materials
Crowbars: Crowbars are useful for hooking yourself on level geometry, or fighting through an alien infested facility
Gravity Control: A box that can switch gravity to Moon gravity, or ZeroG if you're feeling daring today
Remote Grenade: A grenade which when detonated pushes all objects far away
Gravity Manipulation Gun: A gun which can pick up any objects regardless of weight or size
MP3 Boombox: A movable spatial audio MP3 boombox
Hammers: The hammers can be used to clone or delete interactables based on your preference
And last but not least: Cubes. Jank "Cube" VR has a plethora of unique cubes to play around with

All the while the player is fully physics based, vault over an obstacle, climb up a ledge, jump from 50 feet in the air all with completely simulated player physics!
Alongside the physical player there is physics tools for players to use with their interactables, incase you find moving objects manually a little uninspired.

The Maps

What would a fun physics VR game without some fun VR maps made from the ground up with VR interaction in mind?

Map 1: Interactables Testing Area
The Interactables Testing Area is an all-rounder map from as far back 2020 when I initially created Jank Cube. Sporting numerous rooms with individual and unique interactables and an open area exclusively for spawning extra interactables. There are 3 main floors to Map 1, on floor one you will find tons of cubes, some cones, the delete/clone hammers, a miniature bowling alley, and an airlock for disposing of unwanted items. On floor two you find some more object spawners and a slide for deleting what you dont need, and finally on floor three you have available settings and spawnable ragdoll dummies.

Map 2: The Auditorium
The Auditorium is intended to be a much more confined and smaller map so as to be easier on weaker computers, no objects are spawned in by default and the area is almost completely and open by default. Again an airlock is provided for disposing of unwanted objects, alongside the 2 hammers.

Map 3: Interactables Testing Area 2
Map 3 is the complete opposite of Map 2, instead of being completely open and empty Map 3 has a constant supply of new things to see and do! For example upon entering the main area of Map 3 you will see an ascending staircase, a small bar type area on a grassy patch, tons of object spawners and a grand statue right in the middle. If you find yourself going up the staircase on the first platform there is a fully physics based escalator to put interactables on (yes I did it first) and watch them go! On the next floor is a bar stocked with colorful bottles, tables and chairs. At the top floor you are provided a basketball hoop and some basketballs, try not to lose them all over the edge though, they're quite bouncy.

Map 4: The RV
The RV is a small, warm and cozy RV for you to relax or play around with objects in, the lights are low and everyones just chilling out maxing relaxing all cool. Inside the RV there's some colorful glasses and bottles, a small assortment of interactables, and a nice warm bed waiting just for you.

Including a selection of 12 secret maps you can find hidden throughout the game, although maybe you'd be better off not looking...
