Hover Junkers is a multi-player first-person shooter set aboard customizable hovercrafts, and if you’ve followed any of Stress Level Zero‘s recent video updates, you’ve seen just how cool it looks. Hover Junker superfans can now pre-order through the studio’s Indiegogo campaign, which is set up so community can show their support at multiple funding levels.
Stress Level Zero has been sending out near-weekly updates for the past 8 months showing step-by-step progress of multiplayer integration, implementation of realistic gun reloading actions, and showing prospective Junkers just how to salvage and retrofit their post-apocalyptic hovercraft with bullet-proof barriers, aka ‘junk’.
The devs have now hit the homestretch by officially announcing pre-orders of their built-for-VR game, which starts at $35 for Steam keys slated to deliver in March of 2016—right before the HTC Vive consumer model launches.
Hover Junkers will be compatible with both HTC Vive upon release, and Oculus Rift when Touch is released later this year, as it works exclusively with VR motion controllers.
Although the full game will also be available for $35 on Steam when it launches, the developers say the decision to take pre-orders on Indiegogo, the popular crowdfunding site, was a way to offer the community an additional way to support its further development via their higher-priced funding tiers.
