What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We would like to involve players and receive feedback so that we can plan and implement any necessary changes as early as possible. We are currently (September 2018) working on Odyssey VR to create more seamless experience, adding new features, fixing bugs and testing it with many different platforms. Please, be patient while we upload more patches and create more content! Let's create together!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Full version is planned to be released some time during 2018.”

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

“The story will be continuously developed and new playable levels added. In the full version the story is planned to consist of multiple unique levels, which can be replayed any time to compete against your previous high scores. These new levels will introduce the player to new environments with unique challenging objectives and game mechanics. We wish to implement at least a few new levels where the players discover and explore new unknown planets and have the chance to use new types of space ships, tools and vehicles.
The game's graphics are also planned to go through some optimization both performance and quality wise.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“This Early Access version has the first part of the story, act 1, after which the player returns to the main space station and would be able to start act 2 after it is implemented. In the current state the game is completely playable: You are able to explore the main space station, start missions either alone or online with other players, complete the objectives during a mission, and finally return back to the main station.”

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

“There might be a slight increase in price as new content and features are added.”

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

“We want to communicate directly with our players through Steam community forums and social media. Please be in touch if you would like to be part of the development process! You can send us email at: https://www.touchdowncreations.com/about/odyssey-vr-game/ or http://www.odysseyvr.space/

Also, feel free to send us feedback and test the game! We will keep you updated when we publish new patches! :)”

About This Game

Introduction



Odyssey is a story driven space adventure single/multiplayer audiovisual game experience that you can play on Standard Monitor or in Virtual Reality (VR). The objective is to find a planet that could support life, but in order to get there the players have to protect the exploration ship (Odyssey) from asteroid storms and failures.



The environment allows the explorer to experience different tasks in a spaceship during uprising music and sounds. The tasks include locating and handling different tools and protecting the spaceship from asteroid fields. At the end of the playable experience, the explorer can review their performance and improve their personal or social score by playing again. The game is multi-modal and allows explorers to learn interesting facts about space through voice acted narrative and vibrant audio.



A maximum of three explorers per session can experience a post-apocalyptic world after the Earth became unable to sustain life. Be a crew member of a large space station inhabited by a group of scientists in search of a new home. The scientists hope to preserve parts of the Earth’s biodiversity in isolated ecosystem bubbles connected to the station. You must protect the ecosystem bubbles, because they carry the last remaining plants and animals from Earth. Travel through space and look for the answers, because humanity is counting on you.





Controls
The experience works both on standard monitor and Virtual Reality (tested with Oculus Rift, Windown Mixed Reality and HTC VIVE). Headphones are highly recommended, since the game is highly musical and bass dominant. There is an in-game option to switch between the two versions (tutorial is coming soon!). The experience is fully functional using either one. However, there are slight differences in movement controls and user interactions.




Development of Odyssey
This indie adventure experience was developed and will develop along the way. Currently, the game supports Oculus Rift, HTC VIVE and Windows Mixed Reality VR headsets. However, you can still play it with a Standard Monitor. It is developed mostly at the Virtual Reality Venues in Helsinki Finland, who donate working spaces and an opportunity to develop, test and gather feedback for the experience. Now, we would like to receive feedback, to learn and do better. We believe that outer space and science is something we all could participate in, do research for, dream about, travel to, and wonder about. May the eternal flame and audio guide you!
