Liftoff Labs is exploring the frontiers of virtual reality gaming as Big Fish's newest internal studio. By developing games that leverage the strengths of VR platforms, Liftoff Labs represents one of the ways Big Fish is investing in emerging game technologies and pushing the boundaries of modern gaming.
"For our debut in VR development we wanted to make a game that took full advantage of what makes VR different from traditional games. VR provides depth perception, so it's great for exploring spaces and understanding the dimensionality of the world and using that understanding for gameplay.
We wanted it to be mellow and accessible, low pressure, and where reaction time wouldn't be a factor. Moonshot Galaxy™ has a friendly pick-up-and-play design which makes it an excellent choice for newcomers to VR.
We also wanted a game that was highly replayable and challenging to master. We added a 'Pro Mode' to offer more game time to seasoned VR fans and trophy hunters. I'm thrilled to bring Moonshot Galaxy™ to PS VR and I think players will find it an innovative and fun addition to their game collection," said Mars Jokela, Director of Liftoff Labs.said Mars Jokela, Director of Liftoff Labs.
Initially launched as Galaxy Golf (for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Gear VR, and Google Cardboard), Liftoff Labs paid close attention to customer feedback about the game. In response Galaxy Golf leveled up with double the content, refined mechanics, and rebranded as Moonshot Galaxy™ for the PlayStation®VR release. As a token of appreciation, players who supported the first iteration of the game will automatically receive the full Moonshot Galaxy™ update as it goes live on each VR platform.
