Please don't give up on VR for this game! I fell in love with the game as soon as I was dropped into the beautiful miniature world you've created. It's so amazing to me that you can so naturally move around and interact with the environment in VR, which traditional games really just can't come close to.
I no longer find myself going back to traditional screen-based games very often, now that the world of VR is expanding in so many different directions. I disagree with the sentiment that it's too early to make a successful VR game. In fact, I believe that establishing yourself now has the positive effect of showcasing your efforts in a smaller pool of released games, and increases the likelihood that your game is noticed and becomes a 'classic'.
The screenshots you've posted look fantastic though, and I desperately hope that I get to experience them in VR eventually.
