Steam New Release: Sky Climbers

Sky Climbers is a platformer virtual reality title, that is developed from the ground up for the HTC Vive headset. It is a climbing/parkour title that also contains a simple backstory.

In this game, you play as a lost adventurer, who stumbled across an ancient beacon that transports you to a magical new world. In this world, you are granted with amazing climbing abilities, allowing you to fling yourself over large gaps, or even jump from wall to wall.

Eventually, you will unlock more items, like a bow and arrow, a magnetic multi-tool that lets you interact with the Sky Climbers technology. You will also come across living subjects, such as magical creatures and characters that you can interact with (though at the current Early Access stage, there is only 1 NPC). Some of these characters may also assign you side quests as well. All of these and more such as the cinematic sequences help leverage this title beyond more than just climbing and parkour.

This game is only available as Early Access at the moment with no multiplayer (that’s planned for the future). More chapters will be added to the single player campaign, as well as substantial updates to the multiplayer as well. The developer are estimating that it will take around a year for this game to exit Early Access, with a substantial update every month.

This game is on a 15% launch promotion.
