If you have you ever wished you could manage a transport system across our very own Solar System then a new virtual reality (VR) title entitled Flat Worlds is for you. This new title from developer Che is all about setting up a transport network to manage people and natural resources, guiding the path of human colonisation around the Solar System’s planets and moons. Of course, it falls down to the player to ensure it all runs smoothly and according to plan.
Players will start small but quickly grow their network into a large scale operation which will handle all manner of people and goods around the Solar System. Building spaceports and ships, along with picking which of the multiple resources to manager, such as water, energy or crystals, all form the core foundation of Flats Worlds. The title features a progression system and perk system which allow players the chance to develop their system, planets and system further by enabling additional benefits.
Now in Early Access, Flats Worlds is currently gameplay complete with all the core gameplay elements developed and included in the build, with the developers looking to build more content and gain player feedback during the Early Access period. Some of the features that are planned to be added during the period before the full release include more worlds, more ships and buildings, end game activities, balancing to make the experience more robust and other improvements related to player feedback to improve the overall experience.
Of course, there is a limit to how much the system can grow given the limited space available in the Solar System so ensuring the system is built effectively is key to success. As more updates are added to the title and the end game is integrated there will be secrets to uncover and plenty of other extras that will bring all the players work to a conclusion.
All of this is delivered with visually pleasing graphics which offer a unique gaming experience where the player is immersive in the middle of the Solar System, able to see their hard work all around them. Flat Worlds is available now on Steam in Early Access for £14.99 (GBP) with support for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
