A downloadable game for Windows

Blast your hovercycle through the enemy's crushing forces under a bright blue sky!

Drawing inspiration from saturated, hectic, and skill-based arcade games new and old, including games like Burning Force, Border Down, and DARIUSBURST, Horizon Vanguard is a VR action game that aims to combine the speed, focus, and density of arcade shooting games with the immersion and input capabilities of modern VR technology. Use your hovercycle to dodge enemy fire and attack armored ground targets while taking aim with your pistol to destabilize and destroy aerial foes! Use your radar to get your bearings when overwhelmed!

Features

  • Support for the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift (both with and without Touch)
  • An arcade game structure: short, dense, and challenging
  • 15 branching stages, each with a unique boss, access to which is dependent the player's ability to find hidden intel
  • Comfortable movement in VR while maintaining a blistering sense of speed
  • A catchy, melodic soundtrack by Ken Snyder (aka coda)

Hi there, this looks really awesome.

I work at Mozilla on the Mixed Reality & VR team (https://mixedreality.mozilla.org/), working on WebVR (https://webvr.rocks/) and A-Frame (https://aframe.io/). We're working on the WebGL players for Unity/Unreal Engine to properly support the WebVR API (https://github.com/caseyyee/unity-webvr-export).

We'd be ecstatic and grateful if you're willing to share your game's source code with us — and my colleague and I will do all the hacking and experimenting.

We really want to be able to have good starting examples (and proof!) that with just a few button clicks, you can be loading your Unity/Unreal VR games directly from within your Web browser.

With your permission, we could also use your project as a case-study sample and share it as well on a few of our web sites.

Let me know if any of this sounds of interest to you. My email's cvan<at>mozilla<dot>com, or you can reach me on Twitter, @cvanw. Thank you very much!

Absolutely love  this demo and was super happy to see it has support for non vr players, too often it is just one or the other. But blazing fast gameplay, an interesting esthetic, a super smooth feel, it doesn't get much better than this!
