What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As I am a high school student and this is my first game to be published on Steam, I'd like to get feedback on the game and how I could improve as a developer.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“So I started making this game the beginning of my junior year in high school, estimating that I'd be done by next fall. I'm pretty close but not completely done. I will continue to fix game issues and add new content as I see fit for the rest of my life.”

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

“Right now, The Seven Stages only has four stages. I estimate the the game is approximately 65% done, 40% of which is playable. As I get feedback, I will change mechanics and puzzles to make the user more comfortable and have more fun while playing. I will also be adding achievements upon full release. Once I receive enough sales, trading cards, badges, profile backgrounds and emoticons will all be available.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“As said above, the game is about 55% playable. Meaning out of the "seven stages of man", you will be able to fully "escape" three stages in this early access version. But keep in mind that I will not only be fixing bugs but also adding new content. Please refer to the "About This" section for more details.”

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

“I've estimated around just over three and a half hours of play time when the final product is shipped. Right now, since the estimated play time is only around an hour, I've priced the game accordingly. Once the entire game is packaged, the price will be raised to fit the new game play time, thereby rewarding those who choose to purchase Early Access.”

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

“The Community will play a huge roll in my development process as I will need their feedback on what makes the game fun and what makes the game effective for them. I'd like to actively communicate with you on the game's discussion forum. I will be visiting the forum (https://steamcommunity.com/app/706570/discussions/) frequently to answer any questions and make a list of improvements for the next update. Any major concerns can be submitted on my website: http://www.westonbdev.com/contactweston.html.”

The Seven Stages Launched!

Hello everyone,
I'd like to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Weston Bell-Geddes. I'm a highschool VR developer located in Southern California that has hosted a booth at VRLA and published five virtual reality games. You can read more about me and what I do on my website . As this is my first "big" publication I look forward to the revison process with the players. If you have the time, please tell me your thoughts, areas of improvment for the game and how I can make you more comfortable playing my game. If you have any questions, concerns or complaints please feel free to reach out via my personal email . As I've said, The Seven Stages is not for everyone. As it requires critical thinking, problem solving skills and patience. Each puzzle is crafted with precision and difficulty in mind. Thank you to those who take the time to help me truly better my game. I look forward to working with you all.

Bests,
Weston Bell-Geddes

About This Game

Inspired by William Shakespeare's poem All The World's A Stage comes the VR game: The Seven Stages. As in the poem, each man or woman is defined by their ability to change. In order to change or grow, the player must escape a room that represents a stage in their life. Early puzzles like one's young life are rather elementary, while later puzzles, growing into adulthood and beyond can become unmanageable. The Seven Stages is both a game and an emotional experience. Shakespeare has suggested that a person's ability to change is one of their greatest strengths. Can you solve the puzzles of your life?

The Seven Stages is a challenging escape the room game that is for hardcore puzzle solvers. I encourage the player to think of these puzzles with out VR headset on.
