What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This project is made with a development team of 1 person. I'm trying to do something new and different, so some things may not work as well as others. I want to keep the project in a malleable state as I get feedback from a larger group.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Oneirogen is estimated to be in early access 8-12 months, with an eventual release around Spring 2019.”

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

“We plan to add general refinements to gameplay and structure. We hope to add more sounds as well as sculptural objects in the introduction room. We really wont know what may change until we hear back from users.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We are confident this version on Oneirogen is a well rounded and stable experience. The current state of Oneirogen includes all the features described in the about section.
These include:
10 different environments
Spend as long as you like in each one.
No deaths, timers, or scores.
No killing or intense violence
Intuitive Design (children and grandparents can pick up and play)

Gameplay elements:
Fetch with a wolf
Space shuttlecocks
Maze and puzzle elements
Bow and Arrow”

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

“There is a chance the price may rise after it leaves early access.”

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

“We welcome feedback from anyone and will try to respond to any issues in a timely manner. The primary tool of communication will be the Steam forum of Oneirogen. While this will no doubt help us find glitches and bugs, our main goal is get feedback on the experience in general to see what works and what doesn't in a virtual experience. Help us refine this project and build future experiences.”

Tips and First Update

Remember if you need locomotion just push down on the left joystick/pad. Its designed for room scale movement so locomotion is limited and slow!

Don't forget to collect the hidden figures in the world to unlock minigames that show up in the title room. Other figures will add options for building your sculpture and change some aesthetics of that playthrough.

There is more than one way through, it requires least two playthroughs to see every level.

Have fun and take your time.

Minor Update List
-added a glass floor in the universe level to make it more comfortable for people terrified of heights
-added timer to badminton shape level
-tweaked static arrow physics

About This Game

Please Note: This is not a traditional game. This is a re-playable 20-30 min room scale experience with gameplay elements.

Originally an MFA Art thesis, Oneirogen is a dreamlike circular journey through the depths of the developer's subconscious. Inspired by the writings of Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell, this surreal experience was made for room scale VR from the ground up. Flow from one interactive environment to the next as you experience a magical trip through mysterious realms.

“An oneirogen, from the Greek ὄνειρος óneiros meaning "dream" and gen "to create", is that which produces or enhances dream-like states of consciousness. This is characterized by an immersive dream state similar to REM sleep, which can range from realistic to alien or abstract.” -Wikipedia
