This is the fourth title from Gunfire Games to hit the Oculus Platform. Building on three years of VR experience and the success of Game Informer’s 2016 VR Game of the Year, Chronos, From Other Suns delivers co-op and single-player action in a space adventure that might best be described as FTL meets Borderlands.
Ship management elements and full locomotion combine for a compelling immersive experience—while deadly robots, cutthroat pirates, and bloodthirsty aliens add to the fun. As an added bonus, procedurally generation ensures hours of deep gameplay and a high level of replayability.
“Randomization is a key element in From Other Suns,” explains Gunfire Games Development Director Ben Gabbard. “It affects the weapons, the encounters, the characters, and the level design. This helps to keep the game fresh and interesting for players the first time or the hundredth time they play. It also means that jumping into a friend’s game will yield a unique experience each time—it’s never the same experience twice.”
