What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have been working on Lems for over a year now. We believe that the game carries enough content and is stable enough to release in Early Access. The game already has hours of playabilty and a lot of content.
But we want to go further than that and we think Early Access will give us the means to make it.
Primarily we want to be closer to our community and include them in the thinking process to make this game great.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We think that it will take the better part of a year (9 - 12 months) in order to add every feature we have in mind.
When we feel the game is polished enough and have all the promised features, we'll release it.”

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

“For the 1.0 of the game, our goal is to have:

-150 Levels (tripling the current number) with newly built mechanics
-Add at least one additional difficulty mode (on top of the 3 already available in Early Access)
-A 2-player mode, where players have to cooperate in order to save the Lems.
-A Level Editor! Which will allow players to build solo and multiplayer levels, and build larger levels than the 2m² the official levels limit themselves to.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access release has 50+ Levels of base content.
Enough for hours of gaming.
In addition, there are 3 difficulty modes to mix things up and add replayability to Lems.”

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

“We are planning to increase the price of Lems when it will be ready for its 1.0 launch, but we believe the game should sell at a lower price as long as it is in Early Access.”

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

“We actively invite everyone who has purchased or tried Lems to pass along feedback and join us on our forums. We want to include our players in the thinking process as much as possible.”

About This Game

Lems is a VR Reverse Platformer. May very well be the first of its kind!

In this game, players have to save little creatures called Lems.
They are on predefined paths known to the player and filled with obstacles and traps.

In order to succeed in his task, the player utilizes little platforms attached to his VR controllers that will follow their every movement. These platforms have unique properties (there are 4 different types of platforms currently in the game) and the player must use them in order to carry the Lems and make sure they arrive to destination.

There can be up to 4 spawners in a level and up to 4 Lems in a single spawner. It's a game about agility and analysing the level design in order to make the best out of each level.

All the levels are contained in an area of 2m². However, there is a scaling system in order to make the game accessible to everybody -- no matter the size -- and ensure they have a similar experience. Warning : the scaling system is here to ensure that people of different size (from approximately 1M50 to 2M20) enjoys the same experience. You should not buy this game if you don't have a playable area of 2m².

There are currently 50+ Levels available, with 3 different difficulty modes to activate individually or together to spice things up!
