After 3 months of busting my backside to bring you version 2.0 to APP LAB via Side Quest, which as you know was a complete do over in terms of code and functionality, to solidify the gameplay in preparation of episode 2 (which is well under way) & beyond! This version is not only get a complete code re-write but also includes new visuals, more evidence a new office hub and so much more! Check out some of the features below.


I have decided not to release 2.0 on Itch.io due to security and piracy issues and I want to let you all know that I am so very grateful for your support, So does this mean you do not get the update? OF COURSE NOT! I have your back! Over the course of the next few days (please give me some time) I will be reaching out to each and everyone of you that bought it via itch.io so fear not you will all be taken care of! So please keep an eye on the e-mail you purchased the game with on itch for instructions.


I am working very hard on episode 02 (which you all will still get for free in an update!) Progress slowed a bit as I was working on v2.0 but I feel it is worth it! So even if you have played v1.0 I urge you to try v2.0 (once I reach out to you) and experience it all over again 


The previous version is not compatible with v2.0, so please uninstall before you download from App Lab.

Thank you very much I am so glad you enjoyed it. Episode 2 is coming very soon.

Got my key and it looks really nice.

Awesome glad you have it now and are enjoying it :) More to come asap.

no key in email,spam or trash.

I purchased this on itch and cant download the update.Do we get a key for the oculus app lab ?

I sent out all of the App Lab keys this morning to the email that was used for said purchase, if you are having an issue finding it come to my discord and message me.   https://discord.gg/aNWAu4p8kE It is on App Lab only now as it makes it easier for users to buy, update e.t.c so when patches or episodes are released it just makes it much more stream lined. Chat soon.

Nothing, no key in my email.

what name are you in that discord ?

GWPGearWorx - Lets talk there so I can sort it out instead of itch. Chat soon.

no email,spam or trash key. Why not make the itch page with a download. Just send the key here.

To many keys to do that so come to Discord I am on there now , so I can sort it. Thanks.

It will not let me download.

is it an Apk file?

Yes it is an APK file inside a "ZIP" this version was quite big. So I compressed it.

been a while since any updates? dev give up?

(1 edit)

Oh god no I have not given up been busting my back side with 2.0 update which is a complete overhaul, visuals and gameplay mechanics from scratch, to do two things A) Solidify the core mechanics for episode 2 and beyond. B) Listening to feed back to improve it all around. 2.0 is a WHOLE new beast. If possible you can visit the discord here: https://discord.gg/aNWAu4p8kE  as I post updates there and also chat with players e.t.c So no FAR FAR FAR from dead LOTS in the works, just have to remember I am a team of one, I am doing it all and that's a big undertaking. Thanks much and I hope to see you there. Kindest Regards.
