What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access will allow me as a solo developer to retain full creative control of the game without involving a publisher. Feedback from players at an early stage would be very much appreciated in order to guide the direction of the finished game and to have a wider base for testing and any helpful ideas and suggestions. As a solo developer I have a very clear vision of how I anticipate the final game to be, but obviously a lot of issues in VR are hard to anticipate from other players perspectives. So it would be useful to get an idea of how others are experiencing the game as development progresses and to be able to respond to any issues and fix/fine tune accordingly.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game is planned to be released in early access for Halloween 2022, with final release aimed at Halloween 2023. Even once the game is complete I plan to continue releasing more and more content to keep the game fresh and up to date as technology and hardware improves in the VR scene. I expect to be pushing out regular fortnightly updates throughout the Early Access period.”

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

“The final game will grow larger in scope with more areas to explore, more weapons to collect and a much bigger variety of enemies. There will be ongoing improvements to AI, animation, level layout and design throughout Early Access and these updates will be pushed out on a regular ongoing basis.

The final boss battle will not be included until final game release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In it's current Early Access state the core gameplay mechanics and gameplay loop are in place. There are a number of different enemies to fight including several different zombie types with varying degrees of difficulty. The Grim Reaper will constantly stalk and hunt you down. The closer he gets time will begin to slow down, which you can use to your advantage. But be careful....if he touches you it's instant death.

Graphically the game is at or close to final quality and is optimised to run well on the lowest spec machines listed. Mostly the development during Early Access will be to add more content and grow the playable area.

The game has been shown at Gamers Unite as a hands on playable where it received an enormous amount of positive feedback and several offers from publishers. So I am confident most players will enjoy the game in it's current Early Access form.

The Reaper has a fully integrated weather system as well as day and night cycles. The game will randomly choose a time of day when you start each game.

If you dare to play The Reaper after midnight the game will enter Midnight Madness Mode. There are various surprise versions of Midnight Madness including Black and White mode. The game is designed to be highly re-playable and full of random surprises. This feature is implemented.

The game utilises a sophisticated Motion Matching animation system (as seen in The Last of Us 2) and fully motion captured performances which provide highly realistic, fluid and immersive enemy movement.”

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

“The game is expected go up in price after leaving Early Access, and pricing may also change during Early Access as more and more content is added.”

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