About This Game

A breath-taking space exploration experience in Virtual Reality


Compatible with HTC Vive, Oculus CV1 and DK2.

Discovering Space 2 is all about exploration. There’s no action, shooting or explosions, just sightseeing, discovery and relaxation on an epic scale.

Calming, wondrous and adventurous.

  • Take control of your ship, or follow a tour, and immerse yourself in a journey through the Solar System.
  • Feel the awesomeness and remoteness of deep space.
  • Experience the mood and atmosphere of worlds far away from home.
  • Explore at your own pace, and learn about what you see.
  • Come back with a new sense of amazement of what is out there.


Built from the ground up for VR, you have a small space ship and the entire Solar System to explore.

The end result is an experience that conveys the scale, awe and feeling of planetary exploration, in a fully immersive way. You really feel like you are there, and it is at times breath-taking. You can travel vast distances, view the planets (and their moons) from afar, execute some close fly-bys and plunge through their atmosphere down to the surface. Along the way you can listen to on-board commentary that adjusts its content depending on whether you take your time, or just dive straight in.

Key Features

  • Vast expanse of the Solar System to explore.
  • Easy to use tour mode.
  • Easy to use flight controls and navigation.
  • Seamless and continuous travel from deep space down to the planetary surfaces.
  • Planets modelled to true scale.
  • Planets rendered using custom shaders that go beyond simple texture mapping.
  • Procedurally generated terrain and procedural and multi-layered textures to enhance the planet surfaces.
  • Planetary atmospheres enclothe the planets, providing striking sunrise and sunset vistas and re-entry effects.

  • Simple navigation system allows you to easily fly to your desired target destination.
  • Jump gates / hyperspace to allow quick jump to distant systems.
  • Near speed of light effects – Red shift, view contraction and “headlight”

  • Capture your view with in-game snapshots at the touch of a button.


Fly your ship with either an xbox / gamepad style controller, or "use the force" with HTC Vive wands.

Note: Oculus touch controller not yet fully supported
