Defend your pyramid shaped planet from Invader Cubes.

Defend your pyramid shaped world from Invader Cubes. Use your radio wave emitter to push them back. Don't let them get close to you, become red and invade your pyramid shaped planet. Meanwhile listen to the calming radio waves you generated. How to play: - Put your Gear VR headset on. - Invader Cubes are attacking from a portal marked with blue lines. Push back the Invader Cubes by hitting them with your radio waves - Keep safe your pyramid shaped world standing at your back. - Play with only look, no buttons. Green radio waves are emitted from the point you look through the portal. - "Back" button restarts the level. Notes on Game Design: The waves are emitted from the hit point of the raycast from camera on an invisible square plane in the beginning of the portal. The waves need to spread in parallel to the portal rather than an arc centered at the player, and also a turret-like feeling was not preferable and having a different starting point then the camera displays the wave formations better in perspective. Note on sound design: The X and Y coordinates of the radio wave source also acts as parameters for frequencies of a Sin wave generated at the left and right audio output, like a double Theremin. Game born at Global Game Jam 2017.

What is SideloadVR?

SideloadVR builds custom GearVR .apks that include the user's signature file. This means that developers can share their ideas without going through Oculus Home and the global signing process.

SideloadVR is built on the idea of an open system, where developers can freely share their content with an extended tester user base.
