Levels Are No Longer Locked!

There have been multiple requests that completing the levels were to hard therefore frustrating to unlock the next levels. So the latest update just unlocks all levels to begin with. This also is great for any VR Arcades who are using the game :) You can still achieve gold, silver and bronze if you complete a level.

And anyone who wishes to deactivate the in game music. You can just press "m" for mute and the music will be deactivated now.

Early Access to Full Release

Milestone reached!
We transitioned from Early Access to Full Release this week! So we welcome all new comers and a want to give a special thanks to the early adopters. Our mission at 5D Realities is to create the most realistic flight experiences for VR and will be feeding off your support!

We feel Glider Island is in a good state to do the transition and want to open it up for everyone. We have done a lot of work in April to get it to the quality we want and it looks like this is a good time to do the transition. We still have some things we want to add, such as Oculus Hand Controller support and Leader Boards. We will also most likely be working on tweaking the hand controller flying as we add support for the Oculus Motion Controllers coming up so stay tuned.

If you find any bugs are wish to have anything improved in the next update, post your thoughts here and we will try and work them in! Thanks.

About This Game

Welcome to Glider Island, the ultimate VR flying game! Your objective is to collect all the hoops placed on each of the 3 islands within 10 minutes! Use your rocket booster to gain speed and keep from falling from the sky. You can add rocket booster by collecting the blue spirals placed around each map. You have limited booster so be careful with how much you use and when you choose to collect the blue spirals.

There are 3 maps and each map comes with unique scenery, soundtrack and surprise event. You much complete each map sequentially to unlock the next map. The first map is Forest Island with 150 hoops and every two minutes a thunderstorm occurs and you must fight the wind. The second map is Volcano Island with 175 hoops and every two minutes a Volcano Eruption occurs and you must dodge lava bombs! The Last Island is Desert Island with 200 hoops and every two minutes a Dust Storm occurs and you must fly with limited visibility and wind.

Plot your course carefully to try and collect all the hoops in the fastest time possible. You will earn Bronze, Silver or Gold depending on how fast you complete each level.

Glider Island is designed for Virtual Reality but can be played perfectly fine without it too! There are 4 ways you can choose to control the glider:

  • Vive Hand Controllers: Use your hands to grab the glider and control the glider through your outstretched hands. *Oculus Hand Controllers Coming Soon!
  • VR Head Movement: - Move your head up, down, left and right to control the glider, this way is a little easier and causes less motion sickness.
  • Xbox controller: (No VR Required) - Use the Xbox controller to steer the glider while looking around with your head.
  • Mouse Flight: (No VR Required) - Simply use your mouse and keyboard. This is the easiest flight method and does not require a VR headset.

BONUS*: FREE ACCESS to Glider Sim Prototype! This is a much more simulated hang glider experience also developed by 5D Realities. It is a work in progress and will most likely be our next VR title on steam. You can learn more here: http://steamcommunity.com/games/500110/announcements/detail/563351089224178004
