Minor Update

Oculus Touch Support:
Lazerbait now has some basic Oculus Touch support. All of the controls map over pretty smoothly, and controller UI attachments are generally in the right place now.

Explosion Colors:
When upgrading to the latest version of Unity, some of the shaders I used in the ship explosion particle effect got broken. However, it gave explosions a cool cartoony effect. So I took it one step further and made explosions have colors based on the player color of the exploding ship. Hope you like them!

Bug Fix:
There was an unfortunate bug in the first version of the game which caused the leaderboards to get a bit corrupted by giving people points for beating AI occasionally when they didn't actually beat the AI. This has been fixed going forward and I apologize for the minor corruption in the leaderboards.

Special thanks for everyone who has played Lazerbait. I don't make any money from this game and I intend to keep it that way. However, I do love getting reviews and feedback. So if you feel like supporting Lazerbait, please feel free to leave a review! :-)

About This Game

Lazerbait is a free arcade strategy game set in virtual reality with one simple goal: capture all the planets to build more ships and destroy your enemies!

The player is presented with a god-like perspective of a system of planets. Each planet that a player owns will produce ships over time. Using the motion controllers, the player can direct their fleet of ships from planet to planet in attempt to capture as many planets as possible. The more planets a player owns, the more ships the player can produce. Eventually players can build up fleets of many hundreds of ships that lead to awesome massive space battles.

The player is challenged by up to 7 A.I. characters in free-for-all style who are also working hard to capture all the planets and eliminate their enemies. The game is highly configurable allowing players to choose the game speed, map size, ship limits, number of A.I. players, and A.I. difficulty. Maps are procedurally generated at random for each game played so no two games will ever be the same.

Global stats and leaderboards are kept over time for the total number of ships destroyed and the total number of A.I. players defeated at each difficulty setting.
