What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As a game completely designed for Valve Index, Hero Index aggressively adopts finger gesture control without compromise. We want to know how players actually think about this brand-new control scheme.

We've paid lots of effort into this brand-new control scheme and being proud of our works so far. However, it is still experimental. We want to know how players actually think about it so we can make it better.

Besides, though the game is still under development, the core experience we aim to provide is already there, that is, dive into the middle of an epic space battle with power suit. Flying in the space and watching a 500 meters battleship explode in front of you is breathtaking. We believe that the game already worth the price at its current state.

One more thing, we also want to provide some inspiration to other game developer with Hero Index. We like to see more games for Valve Index come out. Finger tracking should become the standard of VR content and Valve Index deserves more exclusive games. We don't call ourselves Fingertip Games for no reason :)”

WHY INDEX CONTROLLER?


Hero Index delivers the superhero-like flying experience that everyone has dreamed of. Thanks to the innovative finger tracking of Index Controller, gesture-based fly and weapon control that was impossible with traditional motion controller becomes true for the first time.

As a game completely designed for Valve Index, Hero Index aggressively adopts finger gesture control without compromise.

Take the most iconic weapon, the index laser, as an example, for the first time in video game history, players can aim actually with their own index fingers and fire at will without pressing any button.

CAN I PLAY IT WITHOUT INDEX CONTROLLER?


Sort of. With the latest "Escort" update, Vive Wand and Oculus Touch users can do fly control and use limited weapons now. It is still experimental feature so might have issues.

FEATURES


Control your fly direction and speed preciously with hand and finger motion.
No button is involved.

Fire your weapon by open your hand, hold your fist, or point with your index finger.
Do the right gesture, the right weapon fired, weapon switching can't be more seamless.
Again, no button is involved.

Breathtaking epic space battle experience tailored for the unique control mechanics.
