What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Go Outside Simulator is very much a learning experience. It's a way to practice and experiment with different things to help with my main goal of making simulations that can be used to help people with therapy or education. As for Go Outside Simulator as a standalone game I want it to grow into a diverse environmental simulator that lets the player experience a large selection of environments, from simple outdoors to places most people may not be able to go. Ambient realism is what I'm going for however the game is not something to take overly serious. Humor is a part of every environment and player feedback for ideas on new environments or additions to them are always welcome as long as they aren't inappropriate.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It's hard to say, I work on it in my spare time so the going is slow. Early access may last a few months to a year. In this case I am aiming for it to leave early access on or before April 2019. The game will constantly be updated and worked on, it will leave early access once a version is released that functions across different operating systems and the interface is finalized. After that updates will continue to add and improve content.”

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

“The early version has basic functionality. Future versions will have better graphics, more environments, more interactivity and more to do. Right now it's all about just exploring and looking around in open world environments. In the future there will be more ways to interact with the environments, more places to explore and graphical increases. The point of GOS is to provide virtual environments that are visually interesting and fun to explore.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Go Outside Simulator is in it's earliest version, the first stable full build of the game. Players can walk around, explore and sometimes interact with objects in a limited fashion. in subsequent updates this functionality will be expanded.”

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

“Maybe, I don't want Go Outside Simulator to be a big expense, Right now it's as low as I can realistically go. I do plan to gradually raise the price as new content and features are added when it leaves early access and beyond.”

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

“I'm always open to ideas and suggestions to additions, environments, and bug feedback. I can't guarantee all suggestions will be added but ideas I like that aren't inappropriate and/or don't violate any copyrights may find their way into the game.”

Early Access

A development update.
Originally GOS was scheduled to leave Early access in April, Now since the game is a simple environmental simulator and not very complex this goal may still be achieved if I can get enough done before then. However it’s looking more likely that it will remain in early access for a bit longer.

Even after it leaves early access updates improvements and additions will continue be added as I work on it in my spare time. But before it leaves early access there are a number of features I want to have in place that are not yet in the game.

Thank you all who have supported GOS. I don’t pretend it’s some kind of big, interesting or well-made game, or even a game honestly. But the skills and concepts I’m learning through its development are helping other projects and moving me closer to my goal of using environmental simulation to help people in education and mental health. At its core GOS is just a humorous walking simulator for those who genuinely like it, and to those who appreciate the gimmicky nature of it.

The next update should be a larger one and should be ready fairly soon.

About This Game

Go Outside simulator lets you enjoy the great outdoors without having to go outdoors! No time limits, no bad guys, no puzzles. Simple outdoor exploration. The point of the game is to just get lost in the different environments. If just walking around doesn't do it for you each environment has multiple hidden things to find. This game is currently very early in development and will be improved upon and added too as time goes on. This started out as a joke project but turned into a jumping off point to practice making environments and limited interactivity for therapeutic VR simulations I want to make to help people like myself who suffer from environmental based mental illnesses like agoraphobia. It's very basic and simple, think of it as a joke or relaxation aid if nothing else. All money made off Go Outside Simulator will be used to help the production of therapeutic simulations.

If you want to explore different environments and look for hidden secrets, or simply play something to calm yourself down and just exists without goals, deadlines, or threats, Go Outside Simulator is for you!
