What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The Team at NextGen is working day and night to create the full VR Apocalypse experience, but we are a small team with limited resources. We believe in this project and we believe in the potential of Dynamic Rest-Frames to solve VR motion-sickness issues. We want to get this project out to as many people as possible early on so that we can continue to tinker and fine-tune our experience before full release. We welcome all forms of feedback and can't wait for you to try VR Apocalypse.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“2-6 Months Depending on Feedback.”

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

“We have a long list of enhancements we are already working on, but not quite ready for release. These include
  • More/improved effects
  • More maps
  • More enemy types
  • Additional weapons
  • Additional challenges
  • Leaderboard
  • Player settings
  • Achievements
  • Multiplayer
  • Your suggestions

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Fully functional and runs well with four maps, but we still have some bugs we're working out and a lot of content we want to add that didn't yet make the first early access release.”

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

“We set the price of early access to be less than the full release as an appreciation to those supporting our development. As development progresses, expect for the price to increase to reflect added content and functionality. All those who purchase VR Apocalypse during early access will also receive the full game on its release date.”

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

“By listening to the community and reacting to their feedback, by implementing new features and adjusting game play.”

Just Updated

New level Nuclear added!

We have now added a 5th scene in release 0.3.5. This scene is an abandoned nuclear complex taken over by the alien scum. WARNING: This is extremely difficult, if not impossible level to complete.

In addition, version 0.3.5 includes the following updates:
  • Rumble--literally feel the impact of getting shot!
  • Pause menu with option to restart the scene, go back to the mainmenu scene, or change settings.
  • Settings screen that provides options to turn off rumble, rotation speed, and dynamic rest frames for those that are immune to motion sickness.
  • Lots of miscellaneous tweaks.

About This Game

By combining the pulse-pounding action of time-trials with fast, fluid VR gameplay, NextGen Games has crafted one of the most ADDICTINGLY REPLAYABLE VR experiences yet released. Beat the clock and squash the alien scum in this frenetic VR shooter.

The year is 2027. As a contractor for NextGen Games, it is your job to pilot a remote telepresence drone via your trusted VR headset. Fortunately work has picked up due to a recent alien invasion. The United Nations has hired the firm to secure the planet Earth, and rid it of alien infestation. The fate of the world is in your hands and your headset. Good luck.

The core design of VR Apocalypse revolves around the following major tenets.

  • Comfort = Immersion. First-person shooters are not normally a good idea for VR due to presence-breaking VR-sickness. However, we think we’ve conquered it with this title by utilizing a new technique we’ve dubbed a “dynamic rest frame”. Classic first-person shooting/traversal has never felt this good in a VR headset.
  • Replay Value is king. Forget short, one-off experiences. VR Apocalypse is a highly replayable, arcade style shooter with randomized elements that will keep players coming back for more.
  • Arcade Leaderboards. Compete against friends to see who can get the best possible times on our customized leaderboards.
  • Exploding Aliens. Because who doesn't like watching aliens go boom?
