Happy New Years to everyone! 2018 seems to be off to a great start as From Other Suns by Gunfire Games is currently 50% off on the Oculus Store. The game is usually $40 MSRP but seems to be on a deep discount for $20. Great news for Oculus Rift users who don’t currently own the game.
From Other Suns Overview
From Other Suns is a co-op VR space adventure game that’ll take you to the edges of the universe. The story revolves around a crew of people who recently tested an experimental folding drive to travel beyond the fringes of explored space. The plan was to return safely for a big payout, and retire on small colony to never be heard from again.
But things don’t go as planned. On the return trip, something followed you back. Something ancient. Now it’s a race to make it back to Earth before the ancient alien threat wipes out everything in its way – including you.
You’ll find danger at every jump on this side of the galaxy with ruthless pirates, lethal robots, and deadly aliens that stand in your way. You and your friends will tour the sector upgrading your ship, stockpiling weapons, and fighting for your lives.
From Other Suns offers a very unique VR experience mixing the joyful elements of FTL with FPS. It’s like they threw FTL, Robo Recall, and Lone Echo into a blender to make this game, which is a compliment. Also, having the options to choose teleportation or locomotion while sitting or standing shows how much they care about the gamers and the overall experience.
