What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“562 Interactive is passionate about games. We grew up on them and we love them. We strongly feel VR gaming is going to be a huge part of gaming very quickly. Snailiens was created out of a desire to make good, quality content for VR. We’ve been developing in relative isolation for the last six months out of pocket and we’re very proud of the work we’ve been able to accomplish. Now we need the community’s help. We need people playing the game to find bugs, improve features, and inspire good game design!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to have the game completed summer/fall of 2017. In the end, it’ll be done when we are satisfied we have created a full featured game with a great narrative that people love playing.”

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

“Snailiens is an ambitious game from a very small group of developers. The final version of the game will have full voice acting, a roster of characters for you to interact with and learn more about the world of Snailiens, and hours of content spanning tons of locations. You’ll start the fight in cabbage fields and small town USA but pretty soon you’ll be fighting on aircraft carriers, in exotic locations like Paris and Tokyo, and maybe even places not on Earth! Throughout the game you’ll be told a comical tale of aliens that just want a home and some cabbage to eat.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At this time there’s a lot to play! Content is being rolled out in the approximate order of how the full story will be told. This means you’ll be getting levels on farms and small towns first. In fact, right out of the gate you’ll have the first 8 levels of the game to play! You’ll also have 6 weapons and 5 towers to unlock! The game will come with a full tutorial to get you up to speed quickly. You’ll also have full access to a pretty awesome base to buy weapons and towers, devise strategies, and deploy to levels in drop pods. Like we said, there’s a lot of game here for you lovely early accessors!”

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

“Absolutely! You’re helping us by playing our game early. We appreciate that a ton. To thank you, people who purchase the game during Early Access will be getting it at a discounted price. As we finish more of the game you’ll get to play it first. You'll also have opportunities to give us your feedback. This is your game just as much as it's ours!”

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

“Throughout the Early Access period you’ll be receiving huge chunks of content. We want you to get to play things as soon as we finish them. Additionally, we’ll be requesting your feedback on content as we release it. You can also go to our website to find news and details on what we are currently working on and what we have in store for you in the future.”

About This Game

Snailiens have traveled from across the universe in search of a scrumptious snack. Who could have known it would be Earth's succulent cabbages? They'll stop at nothing to get their mucus covered tentacles on our little green treasures!

Snailiens is a high energy, tower defense shooter built from the ground up for VR. It combines the intensity of a shooter with a more tactical approach in tower placement and upgrades. A powerful weapon and tower elemental system offers nearly limitless ways to play! Get the Snailiens wet and then zap them or cover them in flammable goo then blow them up! You choose how you want to fight off the tentacled invaders.

  • Play how you want with an arsenal of crazy weapons and towers. Think tactically by building walls and placing towers to force Snailiens down your gauntlets of death.
  • An advanced elemental system adds complexity and depth to your strategy.
  • Enjoy a wacky story of aliens and their hunger for our cabbage. It’s a heartwarming tale of aliens just searching for somewhere to call home.
  • Devise strategies to handle many types of Snailiens armed with different abilities!
