What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access lets us get feedback as we update our game to make it the best experience for everyone. We will update regularly with new content and gameplay features.
It also means that from update to update some features may disappear (some a while, some for good) as we are fine-tuning our game for its official release.
Please share with us any feedback you may have! The goal is the make the best game possible”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are working hard for the game to leave Early Access in about three months.”

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

“The full version will have extensive Customization Tools. These will allow the players to customize their performance space with various types of objects, interact with the environment, change the lighting, add custom avatars, paint in the world, and save their work.
It will also have Steam leaderboards both for the game in general and for individual songs, difficulty levels to ease players into gameplay (including a freeplay option), streaming options to share their experience, more mocap NPC band members, and more songs.
We also plan on localizing the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access version has updated gameplay for both guitar and drums. It has 20 hit songs available, and a new scoring and combo system. We have new tutorials to help guide the players, and upgraded interactive environments.”

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

“The game may be priced higher after Early Access as more features and content will have been added. We also plan on having artist based DLC for additional content above and beyond the base game. If you have any idea for features or DLC, please let us know!”

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

“We love to get feedback from players. If you have played RIFF VR and have feedback on song choices, gameplay features, gameplay mechanics, and potential DLC, please let us know at info@imexmedia.com”

Compatible with the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, Riff VR takes users on a musical role-playing rock-and-roll journey from the VR garage to a stadium full of screaming fans.”

“IMEX Media seems to be pulling out all of the stops by including motion-captured performances of actual professional musicians, multiple levels to play through and the game’s companion app. It is also sure to make the wallets of many VR fans happy, since the game doesn’t require the use of any extra hardware.”
