What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Titans of Space is an important project to me, and it's critical to gather feedback early on to know where the demand is, what I'm doing right, and what needs improvement. There are features and content going in that I wouldn't have thought of without player input! And although VR as an industry is moving very quickly, it's still early days with a relatively small userbase, so Early Access serves as a way to bridge the gap from getting established as an early title to something that can be formally marketed when the userbase is a little bit larger.

This app started out as the "classic" Titans of Space experience (which started first on PC VR in the Oculus DK1 days, then showed up on Samsung's Gear VR as a launch title), and has grown into something that is far more consumer-friendly, with lots of work done to support more features and content.

I cannot adequately express how much I appreciate those that have provided feedback on early prototypes, donated, offered translation, and bought into Early Access, and am always looking for ways to reward users that have done so. Thank you!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“As of May 2017, I estimate this will be in Early Access for at most 6 more months, though I'll try my best to get it all done sooner. I'm saving the biggest content updates for the last update when the app leaves Early Access so that there's plenty of new stuff to offer for existing owners of the app.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“By the time the app is ready to leave Early Access, the biggest additions that have yet to be released (that I can talk about) will be:

1) Narration, with optional companion, and optional subtitles. This is very different than the narration that currently exists in the mobile version of this app.
2) Longer tour beyond the Solar System, with original composed music, and all new subject matter.

And of course, more polish in other areas of the app that still need it.

Although still up in the air, once the app leaves Early Access, I may raise the price a bit and then continue development indefinitely for as long as it makes sense to do so.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“When launched into Early Access, this app started with the "classic" Titans of Space experience, updated with full support for the consumer Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, along with hand controller support, and a few new features.

As of May 2017's 'Update 4', here is what Early Access includes:

  • Native support for HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift (Touch/Remote/Gamepad).
  • Support for Standing vs Sitting.
  • Innovative comfort mode (optional).
  • Real Photos feature.
  • Side-by-Side Comparisons feature.
  • Gravity Probe Launcher feature.
  • Real Distance View feature.
  • Tons of streamlining of the user experience and UI.
  • Lots of content additions and adjustments, facelifted planets, new ending for Part 1, etc.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The app will be cheaper during Early Access to reflect its unfinished state. When leaving Early Access, I may raise the price a little bit, subject to market conditions.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I will be actively participating in the Steam discussion forums for this app, and taking seriously all user feedback!”

Update #4 - Real Photos & Facelifts (May 5, 2017)

For those that like to spend time at each tour stop, the "real photos" feature may prove to be significant. Otherwise, this update does not contain a major content update, and instead brings in all of the improvements made while polishing up Titans of Space PLUS for the Gear VR, minus the narration. Details below!


Changelog:

REAL PHOTOS

Added real photos to most tour stops. These are curated images that highlight fascinating yet lesser-known features of the planet or moon in question. They can be viewed by paging through the additional info pages via the yellow "i" button on the left side of the dashboard.

In playtesting, I find that many players often miss out on the additional info pages, so I've taken steps to highlight this feature during the tour.

Also, for ease of browsing, I'd like to reiterate that info pages can be changed by:
HTC Vive: Clicking the left or right sides of the trackpad
Oculus Touch: Tilting a thumbstick left or right
Oculus Remote: Dpad Right
Gamepad: Button B

These controls are displayed in the app as well.


FACELIFTS

The following objects have received a significant facelift:
  • Earth
  • The Moon
  • Venus
  • Chariklo
  • Io
  • asteroid belt
  • orbit lines
  • ... and the "vortex" at the end of the current tour.
Steps have been taken to avoid looking at a static scene while stationary at a tour stop. This means faster planet rotation in some places, small moons whisking around, and so on.

The first few screens have also received a cosmetic boost.


COCKPIT

  • Smoothed out the player's legs which were looking a little too low-poly in the past.
  • Updated the dashboard, and tweaked certain dashboard UI elements. More work is being done on the cockpit itself but it isn't ready for release yet.

MISC

  • Plenty of info text has been adjusted to be up-to-date with the latest news and discoveries.
  • Button rollover tick sound effect
  • Background cockpit noise can now be heard whenever the music intentionally dies down.
