What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're just at the start of using our innate abilities to think and move in three dimensions to do things in a less limited way that we could with digital 2d surfaces.

Things like organizing your ideas and how they connect together...”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until the experience is comprehensive to the point of being a stand-alone productive application, for whatever purpose that turns out to be ;)”

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

“More polish, more instruction.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Full capability to create virtual mind maps.

Save and Load maps. Import/Export Options. Voice Input, Focus Building Environment.”

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

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

“Help us in discovering things to add or change. Your ideas are welcome.”

“A mind map is a type of diagram which aims to show visual and spatial relationships between concepts. Mind maps can be useful as a form of note-taking, studying, project planning, brainstorming, and more. Traditional mind maps are two dimensional but Noda intuitively adds a third dimension thanks to the power of natural input via the Rift and Vive.”

About This Game

Understand and Be Understood

Our minds hold complex ideas connected in ways we cannot fully examine unaided. We often create symbolic representations of our thoughts – brainstorms, diagrams, mind-maps – but our ability to explore and represent them is limited by traditional 2D tools like whiteboards, mind-mapping software, and paper. We think and live in 3D and our thoughts are endlessly complex - no screen or wall can adequately capture or reflect them. Noda makes it possible. In Noda, your ideas take shape around you and can be mapped in limitless, multidimensional space, giving you more room to think and associate ideas. Your body’s natural abilities - movement and voice – enhance and ease the process of building conceptual structures. If traditional concept mapping tools are like architectural plans, Noda is an actual house.

In Noda, shapes - along with their color, labels and spatial location - hold concepts. Links show relationships between them. This format supports representing anything where relationships between concepts is important. People are using Noda for mind-mapping, planning projects, plotting videos and articles, storyboarding, website flows, network diagrams and lesson plans. You also might use Noda to construct memory palaces, model molecular structures, or simply hang out with friends in virtual space.

With multiplayer functionality available at all package levels, you can use Noda to build mental models as a reflective, independent exercise, or invite others to collaborate, co-create and explore the paths and structures of your ideas. You might invite friends or colleagues to brainstorm and build out a concept with you. Or you could bring an audience in for a walkthrough presentation of your ideas. Noda allows for interactions and demonstrations that are not possible in physical reality, like floating up together to examine a model built in vertical space.

Noda’s free-to-play version provides multiplayer functionality and the ability to save a single map of up to 30 nodes.
