Nusakan Studio and Perp Games revealed that Taurus VR has a major demo ahead of Early Access launch in 2020.
Taurus VR is retro reimagined for VR with its focus on arcade-style space shooting action and an emphasis on 6-degree body movement that really gets your adrenaline pumping.
Taurus VR pits you against an ever-present alien threat, requiring the player to use full-body movement to steer the ship and arm gestures to fulfil the attack and defensive mechanisms.
In the Steam Demo, players will fly the all-rounded LUV-5 spaceship to try to reach the highest score possible to top the leaderboards as they face endless waves of enemies.
The Taurus VR demo is available on Steam for Windows, will soon be available on the Oculus Store, and is compatible with all major PC headsets.
If you play the demo over the festive period, you might even find a hidden Christmas Tree lurking in the background. The below image shows you the tree you’re looking for. If you spot it and send it to (@NusakanStudio) on Twitter, you could win some signed concept art from the team.
During the game’s Early Access period, Nusakan Studio have an extensive and generous content roadmap laid out, leading into the game’s full launch in the summer of 2020.
Beginning with the release in January, there will be four worlds, five spaceships, and a leaderboard in the game, with a super discount for early adopters of Taurus VR.
Each spaceship has unique properties, with some better suited to certain encounters than others.
The roadmap will be split into four tiers with the final release expected to have five worlds, nine spaceships with additional mods, as well as boss battles, seasonal events and much more. Purchasing Taurus VR during the Early Access period will represent incredible value for money with the amount of content being generated by Nusakan Studio.
Of the announcement, Jaime Núñez, Creative Director at Nusakan Studios says “This VR game is our personal tribute to the forever-awesome, Galaga. We’ve put a lot of love into the production of the game. Above all, it’s a fun and motion-sickness free shot of adrenaline. We want to give the player a lot for their money, and hope they help us with their feedback to make this game as awesome as it can be”.
