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 PATCH - for the "Bowling" edition

We just pushed a patch that fixes a bunch of issues:
  • Costume heads are no longer attached to your hand. Please note this will slightly break costumes build last night... you'll need to reposition the head. Sorry about that...
  • Restored correct game start requirements for Rec Royale
  • Other players can't immediately grab your bowling ball when you throw it.
  • You get a notification/reminder to bowl again if you strike/spare in the tenth frame
  • Fixed issue where maker pen shapes could accidentally get double cloned
  • Screen players take longer to go AFK (they were getting AFKed while watching bowling!), mic activity will delay AFK
  • Fixed issue where Watch > Store category buttons weren't work correctly
  • Fixed issue where buying certain items in Watch > Store would cause an error

Don't forget we're celebrating Halloween by featuring your Halloween-themed rooms on our social channels and in the Rec Center! We'll also be featuring your photos and costumes! More info on how to submit your rooms and photos here: https://www.againstgrav.com/halloween2018/

Rec Room UPDATE - the "Bowling" edition

We just pushed an update, before we get into what's new (spoiler: it's bowling...) wanted to mention that we're celebrating Halloween by featuring your Halloween-themed rooms on our social channels and in the Rec Center! We'll also be featuring your photos and costumes! More info on how to submit your rooms and photos here: https://www.againstgrav.com/halloween2018/

OK, so what's new?

Welcome to Lone Shoe Lanes, Rec Room's brand new Bowling Game!

  • Go to room ^Bowling to check it out!
  • Up to six players can bowl at once, and there's space in the room for a couple more people to hang out and cheer/heckle!
  • ^Bowling is a #pickup room, meaning that all player types can play together.
  • Fully automated scoring!
  • There are practice lanes to use to perfect your action.

Have fun, and please let us know what you think!

There's more:
  • New automated backup system for room cretors. You now have an emergency Plan B if you forget to save/lose internet connection/involuntarily leave the game somehow =]
  • Automatically creates a local backup of MOST custom room data for rooms where you are a creator or co-owner (excludes: whiteboard/drawing surfaces, samplers and holotars)
  • Backup timing can be configured/turned off in the player settings ("Advanced" tab)
  • If it exists, a backup can be restored through the usual restore room flow. This Room > Details > Restore, look in the popup list for a save that ends with "[Backup]"
  • Please note: Backups are temporary and will only appear in owned rooms you have recently been in. If you want a backup to become a part of your save history, you should restore it right away.

Hmmm what else?
  • Added soft pretzels and a controversial new type of pizza to buy and share!
  • New outfits: Bowling and Halloween-themed

Bug fixes and tweaks:
  • Various locomotion fixes in Clearcut
  • Various locomotion fixes in Quest
  • Fixed some multiplayer inconsistencies with Current Holding player on Object-Player chip.
  • Fixed bug where creators could turn off the ability to edit their own permissions. Oops.
  • Custom rooms with "Infinite" timer settings should now run indefinitely as expected.
  • Changed Audio Sampler to not use gravity (bonus: now a bit cheaper!)
  • Empty audio samplers and holotars can now be recorded by anyone in the room (not just hosts)
