What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Releasing into Early Access not only allows the community to help fund the game's development, it's also a great way for us to improve the game through player feedback. We have a clear vision for what Vengeful Rites should play and feel like, but we're a small team of two brothers. Getting the game into the hands of more people and using their insight to further refine the mechanics and overall experience will help us ensure that the final product is as fun and as polished as possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“About 12 months. Polish and bug fixes will be included in frequent updates, with 3 major content updates planned before final release.”

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

“Moving forward we plan to add additional content in the form of 3 new chapters. Each chapter will consist of a new zone with a new dungeon, presenting the player with an additional 2-3 hours of gameplay, new spells, new weapons, new puzzles and new enemies to challenge. Our goal is for the final game to have a playtime of roughly a dozen hours and transport the player to a variety of locations.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently players have access to the first chapter of the game. This includes a tutorial, the starting zone and the first dungeon. Melee combat, archery and magic are all in, as are upgrades in the form of a perk tree, new weapons and weapon modifications. Players can explore the world of Vengeful Rites using sliding locomotion, teleportation and climbing.”

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

“We're currently undecided on this but leaning toward raising the price for final release.”

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

“Player feedback is of the utmost importance here. We'd like to create a game that sets a standard for fun in VRPGs and we can't do that without knowing what that standard should be. We have a good idea of what needs to be done, but the more input we receive the more we can align that vision with what players want. To that end we have a discord set up and will be closely monitoring the Steam forums for any and all player feedback we can find. Specific events to more actively include the community in the development process are planned, as well.”

Quality of Life Patch 12/3/18

Hey, everyone! Today's patch is another small one to address some minor quality of life issues and squash some small bugs. I want to give a special thanks to tormentor.x and Kaede for their help in identifying some of these issues.

• Fixed some late pop-in of geometry when returning to the main cavern of the cave dungeon.

• Fixed some faulty collision on the far side of the bridge near the broken elevator.

• Fixed some faulty collision in the life fruit room of the dungeon around the water.

• Fixed an issue where an arrow could hit your hand while selecting a magical discipline or interacting with your backpack and get stuck to your hand.

• Added some player boundaries around the broken elevator to prevent players form falling down and getting stuck.

• Fixed a bug that would sometimes cause the sound to briefly burst into loud static when returning to the main menu.

That's it for now, everyone! Happy adventuring!

Quality of Life Patch 11/22/18

Hello, everyone and a happy Thanksgiving to those of you in the States!

Today's patch makes a few adjustments to improve some quality of life stuff.

• Flaming arrow heads will now behave as other sources of fire do. I.E. You can ignite the fuses of bombs with an arrow head that's been ignited.

• Reworded the snap turning option in the options menu to avoid any confusion.

• Loading into a checkpoint will now point you in the direction to continue your adventure. Note, this won't work with checkpoints acquired before the patch, but any new checkpoints will set your rotation correctly.

• Saving and quitting will now return you to the main options scene instead of shutting down the game immediately. You can exit the game from the main options scene menu.

• Added some decor around the more barren sections of the cave dungeon.

• Added a subtle reminder of your abilities before the final boss fight to help nudge players in the right direction for how to defeat him.

• Fixed a bug where the chain link required to solve the puzzle following the Spider Queen fight would not behave as expected when hit with Kinetic Thrust and reloading would not fix the issue.

That's it for now, everyone!

As always, happy adventuring!

P.S. The Steam Awards are going on right now and a few people have informed us that they'll be nominating Vengeful Rites for an award. Should you like to do the same, we'd recommend the "VR Game of the Year" award, or the "Labor of Love" award. Thanks!
