What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're excited to receive feedback from users that we can use to get a sense of what they enjoy most about the game. We created something we think is fun to play with but we've left plenty of room for the app to grow based on what people enjoy most.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect to be in Early Access for a few months.”

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

“We're planning on implementing new robots that users can interact with when they aren't watching live broadcasters, such as a collaborative drawing robot that will allow people to control a device that allows them to draw on paper with other viewers.

We will be finessing the broadcaster schedule and adding new streamers based on what users seem to enjoy most in those shows.

We will do some fine-tuning to the way the car is handled, based on user feedback.

We plan to find ways to improve the gamification of the markers in the Vroommate playspace and either create a narrative or a system that rewards users for finding/engaging all the markers in the space each week.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently it is an MVP with a constant play option (Vroommate, a live broadcast where you drive an RC car with a VR camera mounted on it around our living room and activate AR markers posted around the room, including one that lets you buy treats for a very good dog), as well as scheduled broadcasts, where we will have a live broadcaster online daily or several times per week who users can talk to while exploring the different AR markers in that space.”

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

“We don't plan to change the price when we leave Early Access; we intend to keep it free-to-play while increasing in-app purchases.”

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

“In each broadcast space there is an AR marker that will open a contact page in your browser where you can email us directly. Additionally whenever the devs are online people can talk directly to the us to give feedback, ask questions, make suggestions, etc. We very much want this to grow with the community.”
