We have a few small changes that are now waiting in the beta branch. If any of the following issues affected you, please give the beta branch a try:
  • PS4 GAMEPAD: Fixed some conflicts with Steam's native support
  • DEBUG: Removed a leftover debug command on the numpad
  • BUILD: Install folder now contains batch file for launching VR
  • CRASH: Fixed memory leak crash on repeated attempts of some sorties
  • CONTROLS: Added option to use mouse x for roll
  • CONTROLS: Added option to map an analog throttle from -1 to 1
  • UI: Fixed MOTD menu registering two clicks on fast machines

To access the beta branch, right-click the game in your Steam Library, then click "Properties." Go to the "Betas" tab and select "beta" from the dropdown menu. Now click, "OK," and the game will start downloading the new version.

Once we confirm that nothing blows up, we'll push this to main.

Thanks, and good hunting!

About This Game

  • This game supports rebinding controls, but only dual analog gamepads and keyboard & mouse modes are officially supported in desktop mode.
  • VR requires a dual analog gamepad.
  • HOTAS controllers are not officially supported and are at your own risk!

House of the Dying Sun is a tactical space shooter that puts you in the cockpit of the Empire's most deadly interceptor and in command of the Harbinger Fleet. Hunt down the enemies of your dying empire and upgrade your warships with new weapons and abilities earned during your campaign of terror.

Key Features:

  • Classic Space Sim Combat: Fly from the cockpit of the Executor Mk II with gameplay heavily influenced by the titans of yesteryear
  • Take Command: Give orders to any vessel in your fleet from a tactical overview, switch to another fighter, or pause time and carefully consider your next move
  • Replayable Scenarios: Choose one of four increasingly-brutal difficulties in each of the 14 campaign scenarios.
  • Powerful Upgrades: Complete bonus objectives to earn special fleet upgrades such as the Gap Drive or the Kamikaze Chassis. You'll need these to tackle the most difficult scenarios.
  • VR & Monitor Support: House of the Dying Sun was carefully designed for both traditional monitors and VR headsets such as the HTC Vive. It also supports 21:9 displays!
