‘QuiVr’ Is A Lesson In Early Access Game Development Done Right

Anyone that’s tried The Lab, the free mini-game collection from Valve that’s available on Steam, knows that Longbow is one of the standout experiences. Standing atop a castle wall, you shoot down wave after wave of little stick figures as they go running by. Some of them wear armor to take more hits as the number of enemies slowly grows over the course of the waves.

The mechanics are fluid and easy to pick up and learn with enough finesse to feel just about as accurate as the real thing. The only problem is that it’s a single map, it’s dead simple, and it lacks gameplay diversity. That’s where QuiVr, from Blueteak, comes in.
