What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This game is in "early access" so the ultimate planet-protecting experience can be delivered sooner - but that requires your help! Play the game, send in feedback (email or Steam community or feedback forms) and we'll make protecting the planet an even better experience for everyone!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This game will be in early access until a reasonable amount of game content & game polish is complete. We really want everyone to play our game, but to also have enough time to polish this game, create additional special missions, and make it work on any new VR hardware that comes out soon too!”

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

“The full version of this game will have more polish in gameplay, VR UI & UX, and additional special missions. Basically more AND better stuff!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core of the game is complete - we're at a beta stage already - so it's just a matter of improving what already exists & tuning everything to your feedback.”

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

“Planet Protector VR will have a price increase once it leaves early access. Due to the extra missions & additional game polish applied during this phase, the quality of this product will go up - and so shall its price. Get the game while it's cheap!”

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

“We'll be listening for player feedback in various online forums & groups. Steam communities, subreddits, Facebook groups, Youtube videos, whatever - every little bit helps!

We also have some forms for players to complete if they'd like to suggest new content or report any bugs & errors. Please access those forms here:

We've finally released a preview of the game's overhaul.

This new version of the game is built from the ground up for computers. Yes, the previous version was essentially the Google Daydream version of the game. This means the graphics are improved a bit, there's more going on in the game in some parts, and the controls should feel a little nicer.

There's still a lot to work on and we're looking forward to feedback on this version of the game. Let us know what you think!

We've been taking this version of the game around to conventions & expos throughout the year, starting with RTX Sydney 2018 in February. Conventions like that, Supanova, and even various tech & highschool fairs have been a great place for us to get feedback to make this game even better as anyone's first step into VR.

Unfortunately, some features of the game did get stripped out. It's mostly temporary. Things like the flycam & helicopter cam will come back soon, as will the screenshot feature. For now, you just have to enjoy on the gameplay in VR!

We'll be updating the Steam product page screenshots & videos in the lead up to PAX AUS 2018, so if you don't have 10 minutes to play the game, you'll still be able to see all of the cool new stuff really soon!

Keep on protecting the planet, players!

Overhaul Incoming!

Hey all! Sometime soon, we'll be releasing an overhauled version of Planet Protector VR.

This overhaul comes from player feedback at RTX Sydney 2018 and Supanova Sydney 2018, with the overhaul specifically being tested at Supanova.

I don't have many screenshots to show at this time, though I can happily confirm a few little points:

  • The game runs much, much smoother now.
  • The game looks much, much prettier (bye-bye smartphone limitations!)
  • The game has a variety of new enemies to play against.
This updated version of the game will come to Steam soon - I'll make another announcement soon before that happens, but I'm looking at a July/September update for now.

I know this has been our only update so far -- development has been slow due to other work popping up. I'm grateful for all of your support, believe me!
If you do want more frequent updates, it might be best to follow BigfootDS on Facebook since I post regularly there.

Thankyou for your support and patience, this game is improving bit by bit! I'll post again soon. :steamhappy:
