Faceted Flight: Canyon Runner Launches on Gear VR

Earlier this year developer Matthew Scott launched a Kickstarter for his virtual reality (VR) stunt flyer Faceted Flight, for Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR. The funding campaign failed to reach its goal, but Scott continued with the title creating a mobile version for Samsung’s Gear VR head-mounted display (HMD). The developer has now launched Faceted Flight: Canyon Runner to download.

In Faceted Flight: Canyon Runner players race down a stylized, procedurally generated canyon, with the aim to get as far as possible to gain the highest score. Through the videogame players explore the environments to earn medals and unlock new aircraft.

The VR experience is available to download now for $4.99 USD for Samsung’s mobile HMD. Those who don’t already own a Gear VR Innovators Edition won’t have long to wait for the consumer version as it’ll be released in the US this Friday 20th, while European VR enthusiasts should expect the headset around 1st December 2015 after a reveal on Samsung’s German store yesterday.
