What is NIGHTSTAR?

This VR title is a retro inspired, room-scale third-person shooter. You play by moving your Vive Motion Controller in space, shooting a vast variety of enemies, and avoiding obstacles and enemy fire. You progress through the levels by collecting upgrades that not only make your starfighter more powerful but also make the enemies more angry at you.

Intuitive controls and a great variety of well-designed enemies are waiting for you on the other side.
