I have already purchased this game through oculus.com. If I send the developer proof of purchase, would I be able to get a apk file for backup as oculus buying are losing games?

This seems pretty cool... so I featured it on my blog. :) Keep up the good work!

I came here from the link on Discord expecting to see it on sale at $9.84 but it isn't. How do I get the sale price?

It's 11:30pm 31July 2021

Discord message  And.. we are doing a flash sale to celebrate!  You can now get Gladius for just $9.84 (34% off!!) if you buy it before August 1st

Hello, what happens with the big update and oculus store?
Thanks

Hi! 

the game has been on app lab for a few months now, but we  depend on oculus to make the jump to the official store. We will pitch them again very soon, fingers crossed :)

cheers!

I also never received a key and would definitely love to have one emailed to me. Had to get a new quest 2 so i can’t play it otherwise.

I own this game on Quest 2 (wish I also had it for PC) and I LOVE IT! If there was anything I could do beyond offering money, I would do it. Sadly, I'm no programmer... just a guy with a cool voice. I could totally record lines for your game for free! :) I have a dope audio setup (studio-grade sound card, recording equipment) and I wouldn't require any monetary compensation at all. Just like to contribute what I can as a fan. ;) 

How do i install mods like the lightsaber mod for quest 2 through app lab

Hi, the light sabers are at the gate, look on the floor ;)

Hey, thank you for bringing such a great game to the mobile platform. I bought this and I am still looking forwards to the Applab key.


Scratch that! I found the link to the key. Thank you, developer!

Where or how did you get your key for applab? I purchased through itch but may having any luck for applab.

(1 edit)

yes, I purchased this as-well from this site and my brother just bought on his Quest...  How do I get the Key as I have not received one yet?

ok, I just went thru like I was re-buying it and selected I already Purchased.... all good from there!

I have played the game but then uninstalled it bc i needed space on my oculus, i wanna play it again but i don't know how to log in. I know my in game name and the email i used but it doesn't let me log in. Does anyone know how to log in?

Hi Brian. Please, send an email to info@virtualage.com with your name and email and we'll help you.

I bought the game and tried installing it on side quest but it says it failed ECONNRESET. I'm not sure what that means but i can't install the game on quest 2

Not sure what the problem might be but it's possible that other programs interfere with sidequest, for example, unity or unreal. I would try to restart the computer and start only sidequest and then try again. 

Please let me know if this helped :)  

thanks.

I really like the game! suddenly I stuck in the cells and can't interact with any UI item. I mean I can move and pick stuff but no interactions with UI items as settings, arena, or whatsoever... Was wondering if anyone got a similar issue and got it working.

Hello, this game looks really great, I want to purchase but I saw you guys will be moving to app lab soon. When you move to app lab will there be a way to transfer purchases?

(+1)

Thanks! :) 

Yes, everybody that buys the game on Itch will receive a free key for app lab.

Thanks, purchased it! Can’t wait to play later today!

Thank you! :) 

When will you be moving to app lab bc I cant play it i purchased it

Hi Jayt25!  

The game will be published to Applab in a few weeks. Meanwhile, please send us an email to info@virtualage.com or join us on Discord and we'll help you if you have any issues.

Thanks

I asked about this a while back, but never saw it implemented in the release notes. Are you able to customize your character's skin tone yet?

We are sorry, but it is not possible yet. We are now focused on publishing the game to applab.

Hello I just want to know is there an app for this so I can install it to my quest 2 I was looking forward to buy this game since it looks really good

Hi, 

Thank you for your interest in the game! :) Yes, you can install it to your headset using SideQuest (sidequestvr.com)

Cheers!

Do I need a PC for it because I do not have one

Yes, you need a PC for now sorry. Once we are on App Lab it won´t be necessary anymore. 

This is an amazing game is there a link for instructions like how to pick up food while both holding a sword and shield? How do you pick it up period?

How to use bow and arrow? Thank you.

Thank you for your comments ! :) 

You need to drop either the shield or the sword first, or holster them in the belt. 

To use the bow and arrow you need to first grab the arrow with the trigger button, place it on the bow while still pressing the arrow. You will see that the arrow snaps to the bow, keep pressing the trigger and pull the arrow. Release the trigger to fire it. 

Hope this helps!

Just bought this today but wasn't really what i was looking for :(, is there anyway i could refund it

Hi, 

We are sorry you feel this way, to refund the game please contact itch.io and ask for it. We aren't allowed to directly issue refunds. 

some things are meh but the bow and arrow is really good

I just bought this yesterday , I need to link it to my email.How do I do that?

Hi, 

Please download the zip file (you will find the link to it in the email that itch.io sent you). Once you have the file please install it in the headset following this tutorial:

If you linked the game to your itch.io library you should be able to download it again from there. If not, do you still have the email itch.io sent you when you bought the game? The download link is in that email.

Hi, 

You need to type the email address where you received the email from itch.io with the download links on the left field, and your nickname in the game on the right field.

I’ve owned the game for a few months and finally purchased all shields weapons armor, but today it had me reactivate which worked but all my stuff is gone my save weapons I never uninstalled it either. 


I also just wanted to add that this is my favorite game on VR I loved the game when it released on ps2. This is just what I needed when I steal the kids Oculus to play lol. 

Hi. I just bought the game and cannot activate

Hi, when is the next update around? It's been a while :-)

(+1)

Hi!

We are waiting for the App Lab approval, hopefully within the next 2 weeks :)

Cheers!

(+1)

No need to buy it again :)

Having the same problem

(+1)

Hi, 

Can you please send us an email to info@virtualage.com with the email address you used to activate the game? 

We will reset the activation. 

Thanks!

(+1)

I had to factory reset my Quest 2 which lead to reinstalling the game. Now my email says it's in use. Any way to reset it? Also, should I expect my progress to be lost?

i have already payed for the game but it says that this email hasn't bought it even though i have and i try signing in but it don't work help please

(+2)

Hey! 

This is usually because of a typo in the email address. 

Can you please give me the email address where you received the itch.io email with the download links? Send it at info@virtualage.com please.

Thanks!

Same thing happened to me, I thought it was a username issue, but no.

So. I know you're nowhere near done.
And this is totally worth 15$
That said the clipping can be a little nauseating. And the input power vs damage dealt seems a little unclear.
But those are to be expected.
Is there any chance that you could work on the Arm-Swing's stride length?
I like Arm-Swing A LOT but I feel like a full 180 arm swing only takes me like a meter. Also the alternating of button presses is really counter intuitive. Maybe hold right button to swing arms forward and left to swing arms back?
I'm no game developer so idk wtf I'm talking about, but alternating makes me feel like i'm trying to swim or something.
I like getting a work out but its hard to make it 10 meters without waving my arms like a madman. Alternating button pushes.
GREAT job, and keep it up! But I'd love to see the Arm-Swing mechanic be a little more practical.

Hi Everyone,

How do you install Update 0.9.1

Thank you

(+1)(-1)

Hi! 

Just download the game again from your itch library, or using the download link. Then install it again using the same method. Do not uninstall or you will lose your progress!
