New to Oculus VR Share is the space based virtual reality (VR) title Space Drifter VR. Alone drifting in space, players must fend off enemy ships using the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD). The developer Way Forward has stated that this is its first attempt at VR integration. WayForward is responsible for its popular Shantae series which has won various awards for the title on various platforms
The title puts players in the roll of a pilot who, for unknown reasons, is adrift in space. As a hyperspace gate opens, the character realises that this isn’t help coming. Instead they are enemy ships unwelcome in the sector. The only hopes of surviving are for the player to divert all power to the laser weapons systems and fight them off until help arrives.
Using the HMD players must target the enemy by looking at them. The ship is in a stationary position however the enemy ships are moving. The videogame shows what the developer has learnt from VR which they are eager to share with the community.
