The wildly successful End Space VR on the Gear VR is coming to the Oculus Rift tomorrow, January 25th, and the HTC Vive in February. End Space may not have the top-end graphics of the likes of Eve: Valkyrie, however, the game is priced at only $14.99 and is a fantastic space combat game for a bargain price!

End Space VR lets you take command of the most advanced starfighter the United Trade Consortium as you battle for control of the Tartarus sector. Protect the UTC’s secret jump-drive technology from the Tartarus Liberation Front insurgents as you fight to maintain the corporation’s dominance and earn yourself fame and fortune in the process. Taking full advantage of VR, you can track targets with your gaze and blast them with your Pulse Lasers or lock on and pound them into space dust with your Meteor Missiles. As you progress in the game, unlock new weapons and upgrades as you move through the ranks by taking on increasingly daring missions.

History of the End Space Development

Justin Wasilenko originally developed End Space, a wild-land forest firefighter, turned independent game developer. End Space VR for Cardboard was the first game he ever developed. He started working on End Space VR for Cardboard in February 2015 as a side project after a Christmas visit with his brother who demoed an early game he built using Unity and showed off his pizza box turned into a Google Cardboard.

Encouraged by its critical success on Google Cardboard he started working on a new game simply named ‘End Space’ to launch on Gear VR. End Space VR for Cardboard was later renamed to Minos Spacefighter to try and avoid confusion between the two games.

End Space on the Gear VR has been a massive success earning top ratings and has been on Oculus’ best selling list numerous times. Thanks to the success of End Space on the Gear VR, Justin formed a company called Orange Bridge Studios with his brother Lee. Justin and Lee continue developing End Space improving the game and bringing it to all other VR platforms.
