March Tournament Prize Details and Update 1.9 with Eagles!

Ok, so finally got the latest update out! I will highlight the changes below but you can view the Dev Log I posted on YouTube

We have decided to make the Steam tournaments and Viveport tournaments separate, just because the time difference it takes to get a new build approved on VivePort. We don't want two different versions of the game running at the same time. So each platform will have their own prizes.

So it's time to announce the prize details for the March Steam Tournament! The top 7 people will receive a prize... This is the most prizes given out in one month so far! ;)

1st place Forest Island: $25 Amazon Gift Card.
2nd place Forest Island: $15 Amazon Gift Card.
3rd place Forest Island: $5 Amazon Gift Card.
4th place Forest Island: $5 Amazon Gift Card.
5th place Forest Island: $5 Amazon Gift Card.
6th place Forest Island: 2 Free Steam Copies of Glider Island.
7th place Forest Island: 1 Free Steam Copy of Glider Island.

Changes in 1.9:
  • Earn 15 bonus points for flying next to an eagle! There are 3 eagles per map and they are randomly generated and their way-points are random.
  • Added in a sync loading screens to see progress on slower computers.
  • Change in camera position is now saved so you don't have to keep resetting your favorite position.
  • More updates to the flight physics. You can now fly faster. Also the wings will return back to normal bank when input is neutral so you will not remain crooked.
  • Steam Leaderboard updated to include only Steam scores.

About This Game

Glider Island VR is a skill based hang gliding game where your objective is to collect as many hoops as you can within 10 minutes. You must keep airborne by using your rocket booster attached to your glider! You can add rocket fuel by flying through the blue spirals randomly placed around each map. You must plot your coarse carefully and watch out for the obstacles each map throws your way. You have limited booster so be careful with how much you use and when you choose to collect the blue spirals! Note - we have had a lot of requests for rising air thermals. This will come in a later update in spring 2018!

Monthly Tournaments

Each month we host a tournament and the top winners will receive prizes such as: Steam Gift Cards, Amazon Gift Cards, and Free Steam Keys. See Latest News for monthly prize info! Keep track of your scores on the in-game leaderboards. Note, if you collect all the hoops before time is up you get an additional time bonus score for completing early, that is why you see some people with very high scores.

Beautiful Maps and Scenery

There are 3 maps and each map comes with unique scenery, soundtrack and surprise event. All maps now unlocked on purchase. 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 erupts 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. We are constantly updating the game so expect the scenery to be updated often.

Multiple Control Methods

There are two main ways to control the glider. VR Hand Controllers or VR Head Movement. Each has their own perks. Hand Controls allow for more precision flying but causes your arms to get tired where Head Controls is more intuitive and causes less motion sickness. We also support flying with the Xbox controller or Mouse/ Keyboard if you are so inclined to used those as well.

Basic and Advanced Flight Mode

We noticed there are two types of people. The ones who just want to experience the sensation of flight without getting too disoriented and the more hardcore users who wish to preform more advanced maneuvers such as flips and barrel rolls. Basic Flight Mode is for people who don't want to end upside down while Advanced Mode is for the more hardcore users who wish to perform all kinds of crazy maneuvers...

VR Arcade Ready!

We support Arcades! If you own a location based arcade you can licence Glider Island via Springboard, SynthesisVR, Viveport, or through Steam Site Licensing Program.
Available for Arcades on SpringboardVR
Available for Arcades on SythesisVR

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
