Where can you get Retropolis 2: Never Say Goodbye? Currently, Retropolis 2 is available for purchase on the Oculus Quest platform. By acquiring the game from the Oculus Quest store, you can already delve into the first episode of Retropolis 2. And remember, when the remaining three episodes are ready for release, you will receive them as free updates. So why wait?

What if I play on PCVR? Fear not, PCVR enthusiasts, for we have not forsaken you. Early access works differently on steam so we wanted first to participate in the Steam Next Fest. As part of this exciting event, we are offering the first episode of Retropolis for free for a limited time.. Make sure to visit our Steam page and get the demo before the limited-time offer expires on June 26th. Go to Retropolis 2: Never Say Goodbye on Steam
Will Retropolis 2 come to other headsets? Absolutely! Our goal is to make Retropolis accessible on every headset that allows our devoted fans to immerse themselves fully in the captivating world of our game. We will keep you updated as soon as we can confirm availability on other platforms. When will the next episodes be unveiled? While we do not possess an exact date, please rest assured that our team is tirelessly working to finalize the forthcoming episodes within the upcoming months. Our aim is to release them before the end of 2023. Stay tuned for electrifying developments in the storyline, shrouded in the enigmatic darkness of Retropolis... Will there be additional content beyond the upcoming episodes? Though we must maintain an air of secrecy, rest assured that any individuals who purchase Retropolis 2 on the Quest early access store will be entitled to all additional content released for the application, completely free of charge. Will cross buy between Rift and Quest be possible? Given the limitations imposed when the game resides in the app lab, rather than the Quest official store, our options for enabling crossbuy constrained. However, we are actively exploring avenues to facilitate cross buy for players who desire it. Our goal is to provide the opportunity for cross buy to anyone who wants it. We will provide updates as soon as this becomes a viable option. The puzzles are too difficult for me! As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance Retropolis, we have raised the bar for puzzle difficulty. While we understand that some users found it frustrating, we are addressing this concern, the early access allows us to receive valuable feedback and refine the game accordingly. Should you find yourself stuck on a puzzle, please feel free to seek assistance via our Discord or by leaving a message at our website. Will more languages be supported? Absolutely! In future iterations of Retropolis, we will introduce localization for additional languages, as we did with the original Retropolis. We are aware of a bug that affects the visibility of text in dialogue options for some users due to the current absence of localization. Rest assured, we are working diligently to rectify this issue promptly. Furthermore, we kindly ask you to report any bugs you encounter via email or Discord. Your input is invaluable in our pursuit of delivering the best game possible. Once again, we extend our deepest gratitude to each and every one of you. The feedback received for Retropolis Chronicles 2 has surpassed our wildest expectations, and we are humbled by your unwavering support. Eyal from Peanut Button
