What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe that the best way to develop games is with the help of the people who will be playing the game when it is finished. Since the game's inception, there has been a publicly available version, and the feedback and excitement it has generated has been invaluable to the development process.

We have previously run a very successful Early Access campaign with Broforce, and we will be using lessons learnt from that campaign to ensure we use this Early Access campaign to make GORN the best game it can be.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The length of the Early Access campaign will depend entirely on the reception of the game. Currently we are moving towards the end of our Early Access campaign.”

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

“For us, a large part of Early Access is figuring out what people like about our game - so most of the work will be prioritised by what YOU would like to see.

More and better content will be the focus of our work - we'd like to add many, many more weapons, more enemies to fight, and more and better champions to defeat. The feeling of progression and variety in the campaign also has a lot of room for improvement as of Early Access launch.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We believe that it is important that a player receives their money's worth at day 1 of Early Access. We believe GORN currently is the best melee combat game available for the vive, and is already capable of providing hours of entertainment in its current state.”

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

“The price of the game may change after Early Access, depending on community feedback and the amount of content added during development.”

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

“Up until now, much of the content and features that have been added to the game since the first public demo has been guided by community requests and this will continue to be our focus going forward.”

Odalbe update hotfix

Hi!

We're making a small update today to fix some of the performance issues some people have been experiencing since the Odalbe update.

Unity have fixed a bug affecting VR games where performance would degrade over time if the game window does not have focus.

As far as we know, all performance issues should now be resolved for users, so please let us know if that's not the case for you.

Other fixes:
  • Fixed Royal Rumble not working in custom
  • Fix enemies stopping to spawn on endless in Great Arena
  • Fix pit player colliders not going away when pit covers come down in Deathpit
  • Improved loading times
  • Fixed throwing knives not unlocking

Currently known issues:
The "Missing hands" bug: This is due to LIV or other mixed reality apps interfering with GORN. You can fix this by deleting the externalcamera.cfg file from the GORN folder. More information on the issue here: https://steamcommunity.com/app/578620/discussions/0/3774483849436565892/

The "Black textures" bug: This is an issue with AMD graphics cards. To resolve this, please update your graphics driver.

The oculusnative build will come in a day or so, once we're sure there are no issues with this version.

We'd like to apologise for how long this has taken us to find and resolve, and give a special thanks to those in the community who have sent feedback to help us find these issues.

Odalbe update performance issues

Hello everyone!

We've been receiving a number of reports about performance issues affecting some people since the Odalbe update. While we've been unable to reproduce those issues on any of our test systems, we've investigated as much as we can and did another update now to try address those problems.

If you were having performance issues since the Odalbe update, can you please try the current version and let us know if the issue has been resolved for you?

Once we get confirmation we'll update the Oculus Native build as well.

About This Game

GORN is a ludicrously violent VR gladiator simulator, made by Free Lives, the developers of Broforce and Genital Jousting. Featuring a unique, fully physics driven combat engine, GORN combatants will be able to creatively execute their most violent gladiatorial fantasies in virtual reality. Savagely strike down an infinite supply of poorly-animated opponents with all manner of weapons – from swords, maces, and bows to nunchuks, throwing knives, massive two-handed warhammers or even your blood-soaked bare hands. The only limits to the carnage are your imagination and decency, in the most brutal and savage VR face-smashing game ever produced by man.
