WellTown Update



Hi Folks! We have an update for you!

But first of all, thank you! Thanks to everyone who has given WellTown a try, commented, reviewed or shared any bugs they have experienced! With your help we have been able to identify some key issues and provide a few fixes:

Quality-of-life items:
  • Pressing the "R" key will do a full game reset (without having to quit the game and reload it)
  • Pressing the "S" key within the first 7 seconds will skip the tutorial/avatar select and start the intro

Audio items:
  • Added Teleport beam hover audio saying the location's name
  • Added menu hover audio and click sounds
  • Added guide foley sounds
  • Improved Oriental Bay audio

Known Issues:
Application not closing properly on some devices.Most devices return with a 7-30 delay in application close, while others stay open indefinitely.
Currently investigating if it is a GPU or UE4 Plugin issue

If you are reading this because you have already played, or are waiting for the download and were looking for some reading material, we would love to hear your thoughts. Be sure to come back and share your favourite experience, ask questions or post reviews on our Community hub - we want to hear from you!

It means a great deal to share our creation with you and we cannot wait to hear what you think about our city!

“It goes beyond looking at photos or watching 360-degree videos – it allows you to actually interact with the location and immerse yourself in its offerings through gamified experiences, all without having to pack your bags, find a dog sitter, or book a flight.”

“You no longer need to spend roughly one billion hours on a plane to get to New Zealand. WellTown takes you there in an instant using VR.”

“Each [game] has a vastly different style and method of engagement, making it as much a fun showcase of VR as it is of Wellington itself.”

About This Game



WellTown injects you directly into the bloodstream of New Zealand’s creative heart via virtual reality. With the assistance of an outrageously lovable local, you can choose from a range of experiences inspired by actual attractions while situated on the breath-taking vantage point high above Wellington city. Absorb the dawn chorus of New Zealand’s native birds amidst the beautiful native bush that surrounds the city. Busk on Cuba St as the new drummer for local band, the Orchestra Of Spheres. Run a coffee cart in crisis as the morning’s zombified commuters converge upon it for their caffeine fix. Take a jump off a diving platform on the waterfront or a dip in Wellington’s beautifully clean harbour. And be surrounded by the serenity of the star-filled night sky and welcome Matariki, Maori New Year.
