What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are building out a platform for fun competitive games using our core technology, the Arc Board. The Arc Board VR locomotion system provides comfortable high speed movement. The virtual hoverboard responds to your body movement, allowing you to dart around a course and jump over obstacles and on to platforms.

Our first series of tracks will have a start and finish, with an emphasis on agility and navigation. We’ll be introducing other competitive areas and team play.

NOTE: Leaderboards may get deleted during Early Access.

We are really enjoying building this game, and are having a lot of fun testing it out. Grab a board and get in the zone.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We believe it will take about four to six months.”

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

“Our next steps are to start adding more tracks and other types of competitions, also to refine the multiplayer experience.

Even though we already have three original music tracks, we plan on doing a lot of work with the audioscape.

Early Access will give us time to build out a variety of experiences with the input of early adopters.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently there is one track. But the core functionality is in place, giving a lot of replayability.
There is a tutorial track and solo mode.
This core includes the Arc Board, multiplayer, and leaderboard.”

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

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

“The developers are using Discord to communicate with the community. We look forward to feedback and suggestions. If someone takes the time to connect with us and share what they are feeling about the game, that is significant and taken to heart.

About This Game

Surf the Spark
From a fusion of the neon blues and pinks of the 80s and the technological marvels of the future, a new extreme sport has emerged: Arc Surfer.

Compete against your friends and online opponents by riding rails through immersive Virtual Reality tracks. Maximize your style points in a set period of time to win!

To become superstars, the next generation of athletes have to master the Arc Board™, a hoverboard that allows perfect control at high speeds.

Are you ready to surf the spark in Arc Surfer?

The Arc Board™ is the equipment needed to perform in the extreme sport of Arc Surfer. The Arc Board is the next generation of skateboard, snowboard, or surfboard that can be activated at any time and reaches speeds of 90 mph.

The Arc Board’s high-speed nimble movements are controlled by shifting your body weight, allowing you to freely change directions, jump, and maintain continuous control on the ground and in midair.

Like any extreme sport, mastery of the Arc Board is difficult to attain, but once reached, all the glory of being a star athlete in the Arc Surfer universe is yours for the taking.
