What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are taking our first step into publishing games and built The Day They Landed as a fun experiment with VR asymmetrical gameplay (1 VR player, 1 PC player). With more support we believe we will be able to evolve the game more by tightening up gameplay, adding more maps/characters, and implementing the latest features as Unreal continues to update our engine.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our plan is to be in early access from 3 to 9 months. This will give us enough time to get feedback and add enough content that The Day They Landed will look and feel like a full game.”

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

“Currently there are two maps in the game, and we plan on adding at least one to two more, each having different themes of play because the environments are vastly different. We want to explore more types of gameplay since the only congruence between levels is VR player vs PC player, while maintaining the alien invasion story.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current game contains two maps, both with different possessable characters and play styles based on the environment. The current version is stable, but if you experience any bugs please let us know in the game's community hub discussion board on Steam.”

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price to reflect new content and features. Get in early and save!”

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

“If you have any suggestions or comments, please visit the Community Hub. We want to hear from you, likes or dislikes about the game. Any feedback is welcome.”
