    Is Dreadnaught an arena game or sandbox?

    Atomic Space Command!

    Ship building then FLY! You can explore, fight, or whatever with it.



    Early Access in Steam - $15...

    Will get it.

    If you are able, please support the developers, especially if the game is less than $20...

    "Goat Simulator: Wasted Space

    Goat simulation is finally leaving the planet where it was once conceived to explore the endless possibilities of space (Though we only had time to explore some of them)

    You no longer have to fantasize about colonizing space as a simulated goat. Your dreams have finally come true!

    Key features

    -Visit space today or get old waiting for that other space game that you already paid for

    -Crowdfund a space colony and get other people to pay for it and do all the work!

    -Endless space full of planets to visit. but seriously it would take forever to go there so why bother

    -There is one planet nearby though. Go to that one

    -Fly and shoot stuff in space, because nobody makes games about flying and shooting in space anymore

    -Learn how to be a real bridge commander like that spock dude from mars or whatever

    -The biggest map in goat simulator history, filled to the brim with exclusive content. I know PR. Hire me Valve!

    -No crew member will be left unromanced"

    It's been a while with the Holidays and the Nintendo Launch.

    Just found out about this one - on sale right now in Steam - only $9 early Alpha!

    Please help out the devs by buying into and playing these games early - EVERSPACE got the fans involved really early and it's turning out INCREDIBLE!

    EVERSPACE has been released today. (Was a Beta-Backer way back when - devs are simply great and helpful).

    What an awesome game!

    They added a storyline and the artwork for the story screens are awesome! (Reminds me of a Sci-Fi artist - can't remember who right now). They are not at all long or boring.

    Such a great game - gotta get my PSVR working on my PC as they have a VR mode for it...

    Also available on XBox One Play Anywhere...

    EDIT:

    After the last Steam VR update, I have gotten my PSVR working on my PC!!!

    EVERSPACE VR is still a little rough around the edges - I can't change the display settings in VR (don't know why) and is left in "Epic" (what I use on my TV/Monitor). I need to tone it down to "med/high" for my RX 470...

    What I can play, though, is so way cool...

    Unfortunately, this game was made for 2D and I can see the difference between a 2D game with VR "tacked on" as opposed to a game designed for 3D VR (Battlezone VR for instance...)

    EVE: Valkyrie VR is now EVE: Valkyrie - Warzone

    They added a bunch of stuff and LIFTED the VR requirement! Anyone can play! Going to get the PC version when on sale - gonna love to see those PC Spaceflight setups with this game!



    Also, Dead Space VR is now on PSVR! I guess it is on Samsung VR, but the PSVR isn't getting great reviews (by the Samsung users, I guess, they hate the new controls compared to the Samsung VR Controller).

    Bought it and I tried it for a few minutes and love it! Will play it over the weekend when I have more time. Controls are fine with me...
