Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“VR is still very new, so we want to work together with players to figure out what works best, what people really want to play, and generally how this genre should evolve.

We hope players will help us make a really cool community, so that as more and more people get into VR there's a vibrant and fun multiplayer community waiting for them!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“No ETA”

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

“The full version will be a continuation of the Early Access Version. We plan to add new activities, features, and customization options. We plan to keep working on the game, adding and tweaking in response to player feedback, as long as there is an engaged player base!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Rec Room is fairly mature - there is a rich multiplayer ecosystem of games to play (like Paintball, Laser Tag, and co-operative "Quests"), an evolving set of tools for players to create their own multiplayer rooms, a token economy where you can buy items to customize your avatar, and a companion website (rec.net).”

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

“Early Access will be free. We plan to add at least one (entirely optional) feature to test out the payment pipeline.

After launch, we plan to add some premium features over time that cost money (examples might be scheduled tournaments, or special avatar items). But our current plan is to always have a free tier that lets you get into the game and have a great experience. That could change depending on how the VR market develops, but that's our current thinking.”

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

“We will be active in the forums (here on Steam, and on Reddit and Discord) to listen to feedback from players. We also have a feedback site:

https://recroom.canny.io/

In some cases we make work-in-progress activities available to players, clearly marked as "time limited Alphas" so the reduced quality won't be unexpected.

We post concepts, GIFs, videos, etc., of work-in-progress features so we can get feedback on whether people like the direction.

We have some (anonymous) telemetry and analytics in the game so we can do things like track session length, activity preference, etc. We want to be able to ask questions like "do people play activity #1 or activity #2 longer?"”

Rec Room UPDATE - the "Toys in the Sandbox" edition

We just released an update. Here's what's new!
  • You can now use a bunch of props from Isle of Lost Skulls in your rooms. Flintlock cork guns, rum jugs, cutlasses, and more! This also includes support for breakable sandbox props (you can choose whether you want stuff to break or not).
  • Added paint grenades to the sandbox machine
  • New gaming tables added to the sandbox machine. These are special tables designed for all kinds of tabletop gaming - the top is a drawable whiteboard surface with a grid pattern. There are small and large variants of the table, depending what kind of game you want to create.
  • New meeples in the sandbox machine. These are intended to be used with the gaming table. They can be recolored using the Maker Pen.
  • New paintbrush in the sandbox machine. This is like a whiteboard marker, but wider. It can also be recolored using the Maker Pen.

So that's some fun new stuff for creating various games in your rooms! But wait, there's more...
  • New Hair Dye potions available in the store. Choose from Butterfly Blue, Paula's Periwinkle, Mousebot Magenta, and Maker Mauve and get creative with your hair color!
  • We've activated the slideshow in the Rec Center. The screens upstairs in the Rec Center now show a feed of images from rec.net, a great way to see the variety of stuff that's happening!
  • New paintball merch booth in each paintball map. These are a convenient place to buy KO skins and other fun stuff.
  • New featured tab in the Play screen. With the new tag-based room model in place, we'll be experimenting over time to find the best ways to help players quickly find rooms - both #recroomoriginals and #communit rooms. Feedback please! We know this isn't perfect yet, and we'll be continuing to experiment here for a good while yet.
  • New Set Tag chip that lets you add/remove/reset tags on objects via circuit.

Plus some bug fixes and tweaks:
  • Re-added display of visits in This Room > Details.
  • Added rooms tab on Profile screen (so you can see all public rooms created by a this player)
  • Fixed the super-annoying bug where you're constantly grabbing couches/chairs in Teleport VR mode!
  • Gift boxes now show rarity.

Rec Room PATCH - for the ^RecCenter edition!

We just pushed a patch that addresses some bugs and issues:
  • Fixed issue where Welcome Mats could spawn you underground in some cases
  • Fixed spectating in private ^paintball rooms
  • Fixed a bunch of issues with collaborative building (e.g., snapping not working correctly)
  • You no longer get the "pushback" effect when holding a Maker Pen. This means you can fly freely through objects when building.
  • Fixed issue where players could fall through the ground when playing dodgeball
  • Added ^DodgeballVR - this is a dodgeball room that only allows Teleport VR players. (^Dodgeball is pickup style)
  • Fixed issue where Oculus version could crash if you booted VR mode without wearing the headset
  • Fixed more issues with incorrect movement limitations in Quests (especiall Isle of Lost Skulls)
  • Featured rooms updated in Rec Center
  • Fixed bug where you couldn't page through Roles settings
  • Game balance tweaks in Laser Tag
  • Forgot to fix the super-annoying bug where you're constantly grabbing couches/chairs in Teleport VR mode. Oops.
