Deathmatch mode, Oculus Rift support coming to Lunar Flight

Lunar Flight

By on April 22, 2013 at 10:41 am

Australian-made lunar landing simulator Lunar Flight (check it out here on Steam) is set to receive a massive update soon, including both a multiplayer mode with PVP deathmatches (that’s right: lunar landing module deathmatch) and new difficulty options.

Developer Sean Edwards explained to us that the new difficulty options include “Unlimited Fuel, Invulnerability, Auto Leveling and Accurate Landings.”

“Each option effects a skill modifier value that’s used to calculate your missions rewards,” said Sean, explaining that the game’s difficulty level was often too much for newcomers. “This should make it a lot more accessible and ensure just about anyone can complete missions and make some progress.”

Sean also explained that his next big task would be adding Oculus Rift support to the game in the next update. If you’d like to see a demo of the multiplayer in action, check out this video.

It’s pretty simple to integrate into a Unity project, the challenge is using it effectively. There are so many possibilities and different devices it can be used with like the Razer Hydra or other motion capturing hardware.

I do believe we are on the cusp of a massive new industry for VR, by 2015 it will be the must have technology, there will be lots of new and innovative experiences being created by a new VR focused segment of the game industry as well as other interactive entertainment developers. There will be some amazing HD consumer grade headsets from most of the big electronics companies like Sony, Samsung etc…
