Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I would like this game to be an excellent curling simulator. I have real world curling experience, but the ice that I play on isn't the most level. I would like to get input from the community on the physics behavior in the game; in particular, the effects of sweeping and the amount that the stone curls during the throw. I would also like to have a chance to implement feedback about the online multiplayer mode and any desired features or changes.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Approximately two months (until the physics are dialed in).”

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

“The full version will be very similar to the Early Access version. The only differences are that there may be slight tweaks to the stone and sweeping physics, and the online multiplayer mode may include additional features not currently present. The rest of the full game content is already present, and will not change (pending community feedback).”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All of the desired game content is already present in the Early Access version. All five desired game modes are incorporated: Throwing Challenges, Sweeping Challenges, Local Multiplayer, Player vs. CPU, and Online Multiplayer. All unlockable stones and brooms are already present as well. In other words, the game is already complete. I am simply looking for feedback about the physics performance and online multiplayer mode before I declare the game fully finished.”

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

“The price of the game will not change after Early Access.”

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

“I plan on implementing feedback from the community about the physical behavior of the stones after throwing (amount stone curls versus angular rotation, also as a function of speed) and sweeping (how much sweeping affects the speed and curl of the stone). I also plan to add any desired features to the online multiplayer mode.”

About This Game

Game Features:


Locomotion Movement:

Note: This game uses locomotion for player movement (no teleportation). This is by necessity, but it also contributes to the realism of the game. To move around, use the trackpad/joystick (up is forward, down is backward, etc.) You can go 1.5x faster by holding down the trigger button while moving.

Throwing:

The stone speed (weight) is determined by how fast you are moving when you release the stone, as well as what you do with your hands (you can give it an extra shove if you feel like it at the point of release). You also determine the amount of spin on the stone at the time of release, just like in real life! Simply give the stone twist as you release it. The amount that the stone curls is based on both the realtime linear and angular velocities of the stone.

Sweeping:

Yes, you actually get to sweep in this game as well! Influence the speed of the stone (and thus the amount of curl as well) by sweeping in front of the stone while it is moving. For those who are new to curling, sweeping in front of the stone makes it go faster and want to curl less. You can even turn on sweeping particles to help visualize the effects of sweeping. Red particles indicate a significant effect from sweeping, green particles indicate a moderate effect, and blue particles indicate a minor effect.

Unlockables:

Use rewards to unlock various stones, brooms, and even new ice surfaces!

Game Modes:


Throwing Challenges:

Throw the stones in these various challenges to hone your skills and earn rewards. There are no brooms in this mode, so be careful of how hard you throw the stone.

Sweeping Challenges:

In this challenge mode you sweep the stone into the designated areas. The stone will be thrown automatically, so your focus here is on controlling the speed/curl of the stone.

Play Against CPU:

Take on the CPU and earn rewards! There are two difficulty levels to choose from.

Local Multiplayer:

Play head-to-head with a friend using the same headset. Earn rewards for each game completed.

Online Multiplayer:

Connect with other online players for some added fun. There are no set rules in this mode, so you can play however you like!
