Get Cosmic VR Platformer STRAYLIGHT on January 31, 2023


CLEVELAND — December 7, 2022STRAYLIGHT, the first-person cosmic VR platformer built for comfort and speed from developer Dr Bloc, slingshots out of Early Access and into the stars on Tuesday, Jan 31, 2023, for Meta Quest 2, Meta Quest, Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, Valve Index, and the HTC Vive. Experience dozens of new levels, leaderboard upgrades, achievements, and more uncharted content not included in Early Access. 

Swing through a gorgeous yet deadly obstacle course that evokes the simplicity, difficulty, and fun of old-school platform gaming, but in a way that can only be experienced in VR. Soar, fly, and fling forward into a beautiful cosmic playground while navigating difficult challenges to reach the end of each stage. 

Shoot the STRAYLIGHT’s beams to thrust into the dark void of space, connecting to anchor nodes and propelling over, under, around, and across increasingly rigorous obstacles. Easy-to-learn, yet hard-to-master mechanics offers endless replayability, allowing for opportunities to nail that one, perfect, beautiful run.

Master grappling techniques and hone quick reflexes to reach the top of the leaderboards, or collect cubes to unlock a variety of race-able ‘ghosts’, all accompanied by a completely original progressive synth-wave soundtrack brought to us by award-winning composer, songwriter, and VGM artist Rob Kovacs. Preview the debut single, Void Compass, released on Emperia Records, Bandcamp, and now available on all music streaming services. 

The full 1.0 release aims to bring the classic platforming experience of yesterday into the VR realm. STRAYLIGHT has been developed from the ground up as a comfortable experience that anyone can enjoy, even those brand new to VR or those prone to nausea and vertigo that plagues virtual reality movement.

“Our goal to bring a thrilling, entry-level VR experience is almost here,” said Daniel Seery, Co-Founder, Dr Bloc. “STRAYLIGHT provides an approachable experience for VR newcomers, while also offering a skill ceiling high enough for veterans looking to put their will and dexterity to the test!”

STRAYLIGHT will launch on Meta Quest 2, Meta Quest, Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, Valve Index, and the HTC Vive on Tuesday, Jan 31, 2023, for $19.99.
