Final Approach Touch Launch + Price Adjustment

Happy Final Approach 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

Welcome to Final Approach: Pilot Edition

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

Time To Earn Your Wings
For players without VR Tracked Controllers, you now can play in the World of Final Approach! Take a seat, grab your gamepad, and seize control of the skies as you pilot an F16 through combat missions, navigate a commercial jet low on fuel through crowded airspace, or even fly a vintage Spitfire through dangerous terrains and obstacles, all from a "chase camera" point of view. Feel the wind rush at you with the roar of the engine and the push of the g-force. Use zoom points throughout the game to scale down to real world size, where you fight roaring fires, repair aircraft, fire the guns and missile launchers of battleships, take over baggage handling and solve challenging puzzles. Enabled for use with a gamepad controller, YOU the player pilot the aircraft through the world from this new and exciting perspective for an action-packed flying adventure. Get ready to perform incredible aerial feats, navigate dangerous terrain, and engage in full aerial combat to protect the world from the Alien Invasion.
Welcome to Final Approach: Pilot Edition!
NOTE: This is a seated VR game that requires a gamepad. Tracked game controllers are not supported in this version. Tracked controllers only work in the original Final Approach title.
The game play is from a "chase camera" point of view with more arcade style"Star Fox" game controls. You get to fly behind the aircraft, but not inside the cockpit.
Sense of Scale
Take in the incredible sense of scale as you soar over beautiful environments. Grab control of aircraft from the pilot’s seat as you balance between multiple challenges, piloting aircraft through the skies with urgent missions on the ground. The sky is full of aircraft of every kind, from F16s to Blackhawk Helicopters, WW2 Spitfires and barnstorming bi-wings. Airplanes on fire, commuter aircraft full of passengers low on fuel, mid-air collisions, emergency rescues, and military exercises all need your immediate attention!
Use zoom points throughout the game to scale down to real world size, where you fight roaring fires, repair aircraft, fire the guns and missile launchers of battleships, take over baggage handling and solve puzzles as you make your way through the game.

• 6-8 hours of gameplay with 15 increasingly difficult levels across 4 beautifully-constructed stages: Parrot Island, Metro Airport, Metro City, and Midway. Follow the Story Mode or challenge yourself in Free-Play Mode
• Piloting aircraft: In Pilot Edition, players fly aircraft through the virtual reality world with a gamepad controller. Experience all of the action of Final Approach from a new perspective while flying planes!
• Sense of scale: Balance duties in the skies as a pilot with challenges on the ground through the use of zoom points!
• 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!
