What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Seeing Thick Air stopped being a quick hobby and became quite ambitious project a while ago, we feel the need of help from the gaming community, specifically your feedback on what we do and suggestions on what we going to do. Together, we can build a game everyone will want to play.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It will take us 4 to 6 months to finish everything we have planned so far. But that doesn't mean feature and content updates will stop at 1.0 release - we're in for the long haul.”

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

“We have a steady stream of feature and content updates planned for smooth transition to the finished product - racing locations, drones, customization content, gameplay and community features, gaming hardware support.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Players already can engage in races in our first location - Red Canyon - in single player, split-screen or online multiplayer modes, as well as single and multi-player VR mode. 3 racing modes, 4 drones and 5 racing tracks are at your disposal.”

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we move closer to 1.0 release.”

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

“We listen to every feedback, suggestion or idea you have - and we consider everything. We let you design features, drones, tracks and customization content with us - and you get credited.”

Reviews

“The world of Thick Air is set after the mass human extinction... If that's not enough backstory to get you interested in a racing game, then you're probably dead inside.”
GamerzUnite

“Thick Air brings flight simulator style tightness of control to a rally-like aerial drone racing game.”
BigBossBattle

“It looks great, sounds great and if you don’t mind the extreme VR sickness it looks awesome in VR!”
The VR Shop
