big fan of your game!
Growing up in the early 90's this is basically my childhood fantasy and it has given me so much joy allready.
Question: any chance of releasing on the Oculus Quest?? - This game seems like the ultimate quest game!
LOVE where this is going so far. It needs a boss at the end, like the cyborg CEO of the corporation making the virus. Maybe he gives you a special gun or armor or something for the next loop... maybe it should get harder each loop somehow...
Can you make a mac version of this?
Have you thought about doing a normal version in addition to vr?
Hey! I just tried the demo and it is AWESOME!
I wanted to play something like this in vr for a long time!
One question, I am a Windows Mixed Reality owner and I couldn't configure to use the left stick(not the touchpad) for my player movement, is there anyway to do that? Thank you!
I was immediately attracted to the art stile of this game when I saw the screen shots... Then I saw the video and it's in VR. Unfortunately I can't imagen I'll be getting VR any time soon, if ever. So that's pretty disappointing.
I wish this was accesible for us windows users...
@JonatBender I assume you mean Windows Mixed Reality? If so I've been playing it flawlessly for a few days now through SteamVR. Have you gotten SteamVR working yet?
Finally an update! & finally we can buy it! Thanks so much :*
I see you put out an Early Access version on Steam, I'd like to support you and want to put money in your pockets rather than Steam's if at all possible
Are you going to sell the game here too any time soon, or would you rather I get the Steam version?
Thank you, Gaeel! I don't have any plans to release on itchi.io in the near future as I want to keep things simple for now. please go visit my Steam page. Thanks again!
This game is the best VR experience i had to this date ! Keep going with this !
Needs a turn around function man, i'm not in 360 it's not really playable for me, it's sad because i like this game !
Just wanted to say you still have one of the best running and immersive vr games i have played to date, you chose the graphic style sensibly to accommodate our current VR headset capabilities and for that reason the game feels and runs excellent and fluid. I played this not long after you released on Itch and still jump on especially to show others the potential of VR gaming. Im glad your on steam now and hope you can continue the awesome work.
Just downloaded for my Rift the other day. The game looks amazing and controls awesome. But, because I usually only do front facing with minimal physical turning around, it's not really playable for me just yet. Looking forward to a turning update soon, and please add a jump ability (I can't express how disappointing it is to not be able to jump in certain games). I play Serious Sam in full locomotion and it is one of the best VR experiences I have ever had. I'm a firm believer that we can get used to anything we want to if we keep at it. I make it a point to play games that make me uncomfortable and now almost nothing in VR makes me uncomfortable or sick. Options are good. Keep up the good work, this game looks fantastic!
Yo... this is dope. You certainly know your way around sprytile.
Just gave it a spin with Windows Mixed Reality and it currently has unplayable low performance. I'm guessing it has something to do with the fact that it is running the WMR software underneath SteamVR underneath the game itself.
This has a lot of potential and I'm very excited to see what you do with it next!! I love the visual style and the shooting feels nice, and I love the slow moving enemy projectiles that you can dodge
It does need a lot more to it though, as I started to feel like I'm doing the same things over and over within 20 mins of playtime, I would definitely add more weapons, some more enemies (maybe an enemy that flies around you, to change things up a bit) more environment changes and possibly a shop of some kind to buy different upgrades or weapons
Overall, very good!! i'll be following this project and seeing where it goes!
Hey, version 0.0.4 is amazing! The best the game has been yet. I've been playing/following this game since v0.0.2, the progress is awesome. The rebindable controls are great, and I'm super glad you've kept the point and hold. That's been my favorite movement option in VR yet. Still my favorite VR game, so thanks for letting us play!
Hi there! This game is super fun in VR. Love the retro graphics, cyberpunk themes, and the control schemes. I definitely found myself playing this longer than like every other title in the Steam VR catalogue. Really nice work :)
I work at Mozilla on the Mixed Reality & VR team (https://mixedreality.mozilla.org/), working on WebVR (https://webvr.rocks/) and A-Frame (https://aframe.io/). We're working on the WebGL players for Unity/Unreal Engine to properly support the WebVR API (https://github.com/caseyyee/unity-webvr-export).
We'd be ecstatic and grateful if you're willing to share your game's source code with us — and my colleague and I will do all the hacking and experimenting.
We really want to be able to have good starting examples (and proof!) that with just a few button clicks, you can be loading your Unity/Unreal VR games directly from within your Web browser.
With your permission, we could also use your project as a case-study sample and share it as well on a few of our web sites.
Let me know if any of this sounds of interest to you. My email's cvan<at>mozilla<dot>com, or you can reach me on Twitter, @cvanw. Thank you very much!
Played last night and loved it! Gimmie a donate button or make it Early access on Steam, I want to give you money!
Guys, this game KICKS ASS!
for its one of the BEST Upcoming Games in VR, i am not joking!
The only thing missing so far is a way to turn, it would be great if you could map a 90 degree turn to the right stick (Oculus here)
Thanks for this Game!
One of my favorite VR games right now. I love the aesthetic and the gameplay is good too. My only complain would be that their is too less variety in the levels. Need more enemies (maybe some flying, rocket launching robots or stationary turrets!) and a bit more deco and stuff in the level itself.
btw (@themikebachmann), I'm playing with a Oculus Rift and TWO sensors in roomscale, no problem at all. The controller layout is good, I missed some kind of tutorial or guide at the beginning, took some time to figure out the reloading and stuff.
Also, I would like to hand you some money for the game... How can I donate?
Been a little more than two months since the last update, hows progress going? :)
Awesome concept! I really like the aesthetic. I had issues with turning, however.
Admittedly, I do not have a third sensor for my oculus so I was not playing in room scale. So turning around didn't work well for me as my hands would lose tracking. I did feel that the game played great in standing mode so maybe some way to turn the player via the controller, during teleportation possibly as other games do.
Sorry if that's already implemented and I just couldn't find it.
also thanks for nerfing those stupid tank things. hahahaha :)
It would be really great if it was possible to reduce the sensitivity of the touchpad locomotion to have an option to make it more linear. Otherwise a great game
Great game! I can't wait to see where this is going!
Hey! This game looks so awesome but I cant play it because I have a dk2 :(
I think a non vr and xbox controller support would be great as it extends the amount of people that can play this game.
Fantastic game, one of the best on VR IMO
Just signed up for itch.io to be able to comment on your game! Compound is absolutely awesome and I'm excited to see the demo now on Steam! I have a few suggestions and ideas if you would like to hear them. :)
- Add tabs to the front of both sides (ambidextrous) of the SMG or the SMG mag, that you have to grab and pull back to 'strip' the mag casing off, behaving like how someone would pull back a bolt. The 'ping' is awesome, but just pressing a button feels flat compared to actually interacting with the firearm.
- Perhaps this could be added to the pistol as well, actually having to pull back the slide to manually let it cool instead of just pressing a button.
- Having the firearms be more intractable can free up buttons for other controls in the future if they become necessary.
- The AI should be able to patrol a path or even wander, this could allow for future stealth gameplay and strategies.
- AI soldiers should be able to retreat and take cover, it's very easy to lead them around a corner and shoot them one by one.
- Have a melee weapon, like a knife for back-stabs.
I honestly think you could (and should) charge at least $5 for this game and I'm ready to buy it once a Steam release happens!
I'll be experimenting with new weapons and weapon mechanics soon and I'll try out your suggestions.
I really would like more realistic weapon interactions, but at the same time I don't want to disrupt the flow of the game. It's a really hard balance!
I was thinking of eventually adding melee stealth attacks like neck snapping for humans and wire-pulling for robots but that might be a while off for now.
Thanks for the comments and feedback!!
Oh my dear goodness what a fantastic VR game. We're about to review this and post it to youtube @ youtube.com/crymorgamingtv Fantastic job NotDead!
I had such a blast playing the update, so much awesomeness has been added!
I had too much fun making a new video out of it! haha.
The update adds a ton of really cool and great stuff and changes the way you have to play. Don't know how hard this would be but I think it would be cool if when you shot the blue barrels they fell over. Also I know I might be the only one but could you make a harder mode I beat the hardest difficulty in around 10-15 minutes. I think one of the coolest parts of vr is the physics so it was awesome to shoot the difficulty signs off the table.
Thanks for the free game and your contribution to a plattform in desperate need of games like yours.
llama911 you can force the pistol to recharge by pressing the track pad, and its good for head shots and shooting the robots cameras, honestly i was clearing the game before with just the pistol so this forces me to switch between the two guns.
I LOVE the UPDATE!!, the only thing i would switch is prolly the pistol be put back to infinite or at least a lot longer b4 it overheats, and maybe more cover in rooms other than that everything is on par.
I would agree on the pistol. The overheat is very quick which makes it almost useless now and forces you to use the smg.
First off, fantastic update. I like the personality the game is developing with the added details and fun stuff. Good work on that.
Second, an idea for the hard difficulty: make the bullets travel faster. Just a thought, I dunno if that would be too obnoxious, but I think it would be fun.
Thanks for the encouragement!
And about your bullet idea; the bullets do move faster! It was added in this update. Well, Easy Mode and Medium Mode is the same as before, but all enemy bullets move at double the speed on Hard Mode.
Do you think they should go even faster?
you should get a go fund me or patreon, like each goal allows you to update faster but you still update regularly, or this much money for each major update and this much for a minor update. I would like to see this game become one of the most popular vr games but it takes money and time so i think this would be a great idea.
Also Im 13 so I cant really help with much.
Thanks for the suggestion, but money won't help me go faster. Even if I had enough money to quit my job, I can't quit for a bunch of complicated reasons (just yet, anyway). Eventually the dream is to be a full time dev but that dream is still a long way off.
Time, though! I wish I had more. I'll get it done as fast as I can!!
the steam download is working!
You wouldn't believe the stress I went through when it wasn't working but had already announced the demo was available. 2 days of smashing my head against the keyboard and the issue was fixed. At least it was a learning experience! Thanks for the message and sorry for the late reply :)
Another great update, here is a video of me playing it tonight:
A few observations:
- You can really get swarmed in some plays, like the first door I open had 3 robots and about 5 guys hit me at once
- Ammo and health drops vanish far too quickly. Unless you clock one and grab it immediately, it's gone. Maybe have them hang around for 30 seconds.
- Chest high walls are a great addition - I instinctively walked and ducked behind one at one point and blind fired over the top to kill a soldier and robot while under fire, AND SURVIVED :)
- Same with the new doorways ( i was one who moaned about this before). Now i can reach around a door and hide from fire.
Thanks for the video. Looking at your upload, I'm starting to regret the quick disappear times on the item drops. Will extend those.
I think limiting the number of high-level enemies per room would help when bad RNG strikes. Will fix that!
please post here instantly when we can download the demo on Steam!
OK! I've been refreshing the Steam page and checking my emails constantly all day hoping for a fix. I think it's still early morning in America so it's not their fault, though. It's already 9:30pm where I live so hopefully it won't take too much longer.
Excellent fun! Keep up the great work. Thanks for the update!
