Escape an abandoned space station and find your crew in this VR game that demands tactics and skill to survive. Put your goggles on and feel like a real astronaut on an unearthly space walk. Master the controls of your EVA spacesuit and develop your ability to move in a realistic zero-G environment.
“The beta launch on Steam constantly gives us a lot of feedback and valuable comments on the game mechanics. It’s also the best way to interact with players, who already tried out our game. The Early Access confirms our belief that players are very excited about our game and are eagerly waiting for the full Detached release, which by the way, is just around the corner. That’s why we’re looking forward to the additional feedback we’re sure gamers will deliver, after today’s release on the Oculus store.” – Łukasz Hacura, Game Director of Anshar Studios.
The single-player mode makes full use of the VR HMD, giving you the chance to interact with the tranquil expanse of space. Multiplayer however puts you against your friends in an entirely new take on “capture the flag” mode. All gamers (and (p)reviewers!)) should also be aware that Detached is an extreme VR experience that simulates sudden and dramatic acceleration, freefalling, twisting and rolling. Even with the 90 FPS frame rate, it is not for VR-sensitive players.
