What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Gathering player feedback at this early stage is very important to ensure the gameplay is fun and challenging.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This depends on the final amount of features to add. Current estimate is at least until Nov 2018.”

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

“The full version of the game will feature a robust VR locomotion system, including clawing into static surfaces as well as swinging with your hooks. The in-game world will become more alive, with additions like a ground and air traffic system, destructible objects, and higher street and building detail. More types of enemies with different AI will definitely pose challenges and keep you trying to overcome them.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is in an early development state, but the core locomotion system is in place.”

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

“There will be no change in price.”

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

“Community feedback is very important and will be used to iterate over and perfect the mechanics of the game.”

0.3 - The Rooftop Update

World detail
  • Populated building rooftops with new objects (ledges, skylights, water tanks, fuel tanks, air vents, construction cranes, flag poles, damage decals).

Gameplay
  • Added wings. Stretch your arms to open your wings and glide over the city.
  • Reworked camera turning controls for non-360 tracking.
  • Tweaks to hook shooting gameplay. Can now use index triggers to shoot hooks.

Graphics/UI
  • Added post-processing effects
  • Dynamic day-night cycle
  • Clean menu interface

Note: In some cases the game may run under 90fps even at low settings on systems with the specified minimum system requirements. To avoid creative constraints as a result of premature optimization, I have decided not to completely optimize the game yet, but will continue to make performance adjustments over time where it makes sense. The specified minimum system requirements are still the current target.

About This Game

Use your arm hooks to swing around a procedurally generated city in VR!

Specifically designed for VR, The Armclaw Experiment aims to let you live the fantasy of swinging around in a large urban jungle.

Gameplay


The Armclaw Experiment is a sandbox game. There are no missions or objectives, penalties or rewards, and there are no hand-holding tutorials. You can use your hooks to swing around and explore the city, hunt and grab the randomly placed stars in the map or have fun grabbing onto and wrecking helicopters. What you do is up to you.

Hope you have fun!
