What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“First of all, we want to collect feedback on the gameplay, players' understanding of the narrative and what can be added to improve the gameplay and storyline.

Find out what players want most when playing a narrative VR game.

Balance all the key aspects and fix issues based on players feedbacks.

Find out how much players will be interested in additional game modes after the main passage.

Improving the graphical part of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning from two to three months of early access гntil all story episodes are added sequentially, balanced on the accumulated feedback from previous ones.”

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

“The final version of the game will contain all 7 episodes of the story passage at the same time with a polished balance.

The ability to choose the completed episodes for playing in an alternative mode based on completing micro-tasks for a while with increasing difficulty.

Polished lights, graphics and overall increased performance for minimal spec PC's.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is in alpha stage.
At the moment, all the planned game mechanics have been implemented:
1. Moving in space by teleportation or locomotion
2. Selection of items for further use, such as keys, notes, puzzle pieces.
3. Selection and use of firearms and melee weapons.
4. Voice acting of plot characters and intermissions.
5. Fighting enemies

At the start, the first storyline episode of the game is available and subsequent ones will be added with weekly game updates. In which there will be fixes for possible problems found and selected wishes from players.
After adding all the episodes, an alternative game mode will be added - performing micro-tasks on the passed locations.”

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

“We plan to add value after early access ends.”

About This Game

Cradle of Links

Is a story-driven VR shooter set in the dark atmosphere of Victorian England.
You are a soldier who returned home from a distant Indian colony. Upon arrival, you find out that your city has been closed for a year due to an unexplained pandemic and you cannot get into it.
Sitting and thinking in a bar in a neighboring city, you lose the sense of time until the bartender asks you to leave the establishment. A strange old man is waiting at the exit, he throws a handful of powder in your face and deprives you of consciousness.
When you wake up, you find yourself imprisoned in a strange place. The same old man greets you and says that you are a good find. What this all means is not clear, but he says that he will definitely release you after completing a certain task in the quarantine city.
But how to get there if the city itself is closed and its air is mortally poisoned?.

All secrets will be revealed gradually.
