What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Furious Seas has received a lot of positive feedback and constructive comments at shows and events that we've attended this past year. Our community has helped us better focus the efforts of our small, but dedicated indie VR studio. We want to open up this opportunity to a wider audience so that more people can preview the game and help us build the best version of Furious Seas that we're able to!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to transition out of Early Access in 2019.”

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

“Our core focus prior to the release of the full version, will be to complete the single-player campaign, add more gameplay depth, add more gameplay modes, and increase replay value. We'll be listening to our community and adding more content and gameplay based on their feedback and suggestions.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version currently has the core ship and combat mechanics in place, two early-stage levels, and two bosses in the single-player campaign for players to battle against. We also have an early version of our free roam Exploration Mode.”

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

“Our goal is to make sure our community feels that they are receiving a lot of value when they purchase our game. We may price the game differently following Early Access, based on community feedback and the amount of content we add during Early Access.”

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

“For us, Early Access is about actively working together with our community to create something that wouldn't be possible otherwise. We want to hear about your thoughts, comments, feedback, ideas, and any problems you come across during your time with Furious Seas. Let us know through the channels below, and we'll do our best to quickly look after anything sent our way.

The goal is to have a full version that everyone involved can be proud of. We'll need your help to get there!”

Survival Mode Update

...Are you ready for a real pirate challenge?
Survival Mode!

Arm your cannons and unleash their wrath against a ceaseless horde of furious pirates. Take plunder from your fallen prey to add to your wealth and collect valuable supplies to repair your ship and keep yourself one step ahead of Davy Jones and the bottom of the sea.

You can find the new Survival Mode by starting Exploration Mode and then enabling the 'Survival Mode' toggle when it's presented.

Update Details
  • Survival Mode - Test your skills and see how much booty you can claim against an unending hoard of enemies
  • Treasure Pickup (Survival Mode only) - Collect loot from your sunken foes!
  • Repair Pickup (Survival Mode only) - Keep yourself from death's door with a quick repair to your damaged vessel.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed ambient wave sound effects being too loud occasionally
  • Fixed bug where after player respawns during opening tutorial level the enemy ships wouldn't reset properly
  • Fixed an issue where UI screens can appear 'under water'
  • Fixed a clipping issue with the player command cannons on some ships

As always, you can see our production roadmap and our current progress via Canny!

Exploration Mode Update

The humble beginnings of Exploration Mode have now been released!

This is the start of our foray into open-ended gameplay. It's a mode to let players enjoy VR sailing and pirate ship battles away from the structured missions of the single-player campaign.

To unlock Exploration Mode, players will need to defeat the first boss, William "Tails" Avery. There will be a map held by the skeleton on the Island Hub. When grabbed, players can start Exploration Mode with enemies, or without enemies to sail in peace. There isn't too much yet, but players can enjoy sailing around a larger environment.

We hope to grow Exploration Mode into a fun experience on its own that players can keep coming back to for high seas action. It will also be used to introduce new features and gameplay elements that we plan to bring over to the single-player campaign.

The addition of Exploration Mode was made possible with feedback from our incredible community. We released Furious Seas into Early Access because we wanted to hear what everyone wanted in a VR pirate ship game to help guide our development. As a tiny indie studio, the responses we've received have been tremendously helpful and we can't thank you all enough!

Let us know your thoughts on Exploration Mode in our Steam Community Discussion Forums, and be sure to continue helping us navigate our development path on our interactive roadmap: https://furiousseas.canny.io

New Additions
  • Exploration Mode - first pass.
  • Added an additional generic AI captain model.
  • Reduced frame rate stuttering by preloading shaders.
  • Reduced cloth setup time.
