What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We had a good experience with early access with the previous Pierhead Arcade game and we feel that the sequel will also benefit from close user engagement with the development process.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“A few months until we feel that the game experience is as good as it can be.”

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

“We will add arcade machines and make changes with the help of user feedback, replace placeholder assets and squash bugs that are discovered through play testing. Trading cards and Steam achievements will be added as well.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“You can play all new arcade machines not included in the previous Pierhead Arcade and also customise the look of your avatar. Bugs and missing / temp assets will likely exist at least for the short term.”

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

“The game's price will not change and owners of the previous game will get a discount on this version through Steam bundles.”

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

“We will use discord to directly engage with players and make changes based on feedback and squash bugs as soon as we find them. We'll also be taking suggestions for machines to add.”

Update 17/7/19


Thank you all for joining us on our early access journey and for your patience while we iron out the early bugs in the game. If you wish to get involved with the community we have a steadily growing Discord group, as you can see in the image we have the return of the box head due to a user request from there. I am always happy to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

There are a bunch of changes in this update, I'll list some of them below. After this we will be expanding the hall and adding new machines!

  • Updated Sumo Bot to make the multiplier easier to read
  • Added tutorial boards for every controller
  • Added a button to show controller bindings (you can also change the bindings yourself through steamvr settings)
  • Added crouch for Oculus users
  • Changed default grip on vive to toggle
  • Made the ring-pull on cans open with a pinch gesture
  • Fixed every gift shop item
  • Changed default finger range
  • Removed the teleport prompt rumble
  • Added snapping to balls to make throwing easier
  • Removed the buzz wire toy (might come back later)
  • Added a missing toy from the prize shelf
  • Basketballs that bounce out of the hoop no longer count
