Glassteroids released into Early Access

Hi folks,

Hope you are having fun out there in VR land! However today I'm announcing a title which doesn't need VR to play.

It's a 3D version of the classic Asteroids, with excellently stylish retro graphics and soundtrack (even if I say so myself!).

I had a first person VR mode in there, but it causes too much motion sickness, so I'm reworking the VR and will release it in an update later.

I intended the game to be first person for both VR and non-VR, but tried out a third person view and it turned out to be a lot of fun, as well as inspiring me to create more ship models. Here's a video which has some of the ships I've made so far, and a taste of the gameplay:

As time goes on I'll add more ships, taking inspiration from the shows I loved as a kid - Star Wars, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, etc.

This is an older video shot from the first person view, and with some beat-matched colour themes. In normal gameplay, the colour changes up each level, though I have been considering making modes where colour is part of the gameplay.

During early access I will be working on adding extra game modes. If you're a retro game fan then you might remember Space War and Defender, I'm planning to add these to add a bit of variety while keeping the same awesome aesthetics. I will also add co-op and competitive multiplayer if enough folks are interested!

Grab the game on Steam
