VR Platforming game, that gives you the freedom to move across the environment with superhuman abilities. Conquer over 35 levels with new obstacles and challenges. Compete for the fastest times or explore the environment. Experience the freedom of movement
Our core motivation for creating TO THE TOP was to create a movement mechanic that is simple to use, takes advantages of VR input, and feels very comfortable to play. We spent a year testing and tuning this system, until it felt like a movement system that was not only fun to use but also opened the door to create brand new gameplay that has not been seen in platforming games before.
New and Original Movement System - Built from the ground up that empowers the player with super human movement abilities with next to no motion sickness.
35 Levels to Play - Each level brings new challenges and environments to discover.
Over 30 Customizable Options to Unlock - Customize your robot ranging from hands, torso, and head.
5 Goals to Conquer Per Level - Each level has multiple time goals and exploration challenges.
Online Leaderboards - Speed run for the best times on our online leaderboard system.
- Multiplayer - Jump into an online session and race for the best time against other players. Work together to build all new shortcuts to overcome the CO-OP Challenge for each level. All new unlockable customizables for Multiplayer progression(AP).
TO THE TOP was made in Austin, TX and we were inspired by the local music that is a part of our scene. We are fortunate to have their music on the TO THE TOP soundtrack. So make sure to play with headphones on and turn it all the way up!

How TO THE TOP started
In September of 2015 Matey came back to Austin after a stay in China and crashed at Dan's home. Dan being the VR evangelist had access to some of the early consumer VR devices, They decided to start experimenting and seeing what new original ideas they could come up with. Over the course of a weekend game jam they came up with the base mechanics of climbing and leaping. Since then they have been tuning the game to maximize the fun and comfort of the game. Testing it with hundreds of players over time, they discovered their mechanics had close to zero motion sickness reactions from players. Over the course of the following year, they focused on building great game content that would make TO THE TOP a worthwhile package for all players.
