Oculus Touch Launch + Price Adjustment

Happy Oculus Touch Launch!

We're excited to announce the launch of Final Approach on Oculus Touch systems. Hand-tracking is an essential part of the experience of Final Approach, and we’re extremely excited to offer our original game to players on Oculus Rift.

In the eight months since Final Approach has launched on HTC Vive, we’ve been amazed by the response from our fans. When we created Final Approach as a mere prototype at the Austin Roomscale VR Jam in 2015, we never would have imagined how it would develop to become the magical experience it is today. Constantly we hear how our game makes players “feel like a kid again” in our world of tiny planes and big challenges.

In order to continue reaching more fans with the fantastic world we’ve created, we will be permanently reducing the price of Final Approach and Final Approach: Pilot Edition to $14.99 USD. Today is a day that we expand the horizon for players to experience Final Approach through the launch of Oculus Touch, and we want t make it available to as many players as possible.

Additionally, we are happy to continue to offer Final Approach: Pilot Edition for free to any owner of Final Approach- and vice versa! If you have already purchased Final Approach: Pilot Edition on Oculus Home, the Touch version of Final Approach will be available for you to download for free. This bundle applies automatically with any purchase of either game on Steam.

**(NOTE: As of right now, the price of Final Approach: Pilot Edition has not been lowered on Oculus Home. To receive both games, purchase Final Approach on Oculus Home and Pilot Edition will be available for you to download for free. If purchasing on Steam, prices are correct and you will still automatically receive the other game when purchasing either Final Approach or Pilot Edition.)

We offer a huge thank you to all of our fans and community for their support of Final Approach thus far, and can't wait to hear about the adventures of new players on Oculus Touch.

You can purchase Final Approach for Oculus Touch on Oculus Home or here on Steam.

Happy flying!

About This Game

Two Games for the Price of One- Final Approach: Pilot Edition includes a copy of the original Final Approach for Tracked Motion Controllers. If you already purchased the original Final Approach, check your library for your free copy of Final Approach: Pilot Edition

Take control of the skies like never before in a full Virtual Reality world! Airplanes on fire, commuter aircraft low on fuel, mid-air collisions, emergency rescues, and military exercises all need your immediate attention. Manage your aircraft and airports in "God Mode" as you tower over large metropolitan airports, tropical islands, and towering cities. Path your aircraft to safety, avoiding air traffic, fierce thunderstorms, and perilous landscapes. Get those planes refueled, repaired, and back in the air as fast as possible. You will need nerves of steel as you zoom down to "Toy Mode" to fight raging aircraft fires, man the guns and missiles of the battleship, and the worst task of all...Luggage Sorting. Don't waste any time, the skies are full of emergencies that only you can manage. Did we mention the Alien Invasion? Welcome to Final Approach!

Room-Scale VR

Never before has a game used the full capability and power of Room Scale Virtual Space! The sky is full of aircraft of every shape and size, from F16s to Blackhawk Helicopters, WW2 Spitfires and barnstorming bi-wings. We even threw in predator drones and stealth bombers for free! Enjoy over 6 hours of gameplay, mini-games, and free-play modes!

Final Approach gives you complete control of the skies around the airports and islands as you tower over the world in what we call "God Mode". Using the HTC Vive or Oculus Touch motion controllers, reach up to grab an aircraft, draw a path from one side of the room to the other, and get the aircraft to their designated runway. In addition to managing the aircraft, the player can use zoom points throughout the game to get up close and personal with various aspects of the terrain. Scale down to real world size, where you can fight roaring fires with water hoses, interact with the guns and missile launchers of battleships, sort luggage, scare off seagulls with air horns and solve puzzles to make your way through the game.


  • Flying military jets and helicopters in combat and rescue missions while navigating the decks of aircraft carriers and battleships. Take control of the boat guns and missiles as you fight off enemy combatants
  • Take control of a city airport, managing large commercial and private aircraft. Pilot them down to their appropriate gates while you navigate helicopters and ground crew on various tasks.
  • Fly your rescue and support helicopters around skyscrapers and large office buildings in a towering metropolis as you navigate your way through busy streets to clear traffic jams, fight towering infernos, and rescue stranded citizens.
  • Aircraft include F-16 and F18 fighter jets, DCA-717s, A320 Commercial Jets, Messerschmitts, Spitfires, B2 Stealth Bombers, B17s, Predator Drones, Heli UH 60 Gunners, HH65C Dauphins, Sikorsky Ch-54s, HH-60 Blackhawks and so much more!

Story Mode

Follow our heroic pilots as they work their way through dangerous missions and hazardous terrain. But they can't do it alone, they need your help. Keep them safe while they help you decipher puzzles and challenges that could lead you to the truth and knowledge of how to stop what could be the world's greatest threat yet, ALIENS!
