Space Rift playable demo now available on Steam store
Space lovers can explore the galaxies in a new celestial adventure available as a playable demo on Steam from this week, released by bitComposer and developer Vibrant Core.
VR only game Space Rift is available for the Oculus Rift, Vive, Gear VR and will be out on Playstation VR later this year. Players can whiz around the cinematic journey through space and choose their own scripted mission in a "complete game experience".
In case you want some background before playing, imagine Earth has been devastated entirely by a destructive meteor shower, thus forcing humanity to emigrate to Mars, where they are enslaved.
As a player, you slip into the role of the veteran pilot Casey, who takes on the hostile enslavers to liberate humankind from their suffering on Mars. Radio transmissions, newscasts and the interaction with other characters on the base station continuously add new details about the ongoing conflict and background information.
The full game is expected to come it at around £14.99 via the Steam and the Humble Store. The Android Gear VR version of Space Rift will also be released this summer.
If you're interested to see what goes into the making of a VR game, the team behind Space Rift have also put together a nine-part 'making of' series, published on YouTube.
