    I stumbled on this and haven’t spotted anything here on the codex about it (but I keep getting error 404 on the search page so maybe I just missed it when I was thread hunting).

    It’s a space roguelike for the Oculus Rift that looks kind of neat. I don’t normally go for anything with multiplayer, but has anyone here tried it? Or are VR headsets too expensive for you gentiles?

    Here’s a review—they call it the ultimate space pirate simulator.

    Combination of ship to ship fighting and shooter style boarding actions. I think it looks neat. Let me know if any of you butt pirates have the hardware and want to co-op at some point.

    Roguelikes are top down, tile-based, turn-based games, so this isn't a roguelike.

    It's one of the better Oculus funded exclusives. It's basically a take on FTL in first person, with some fps laser pistol combat when you teleport over to enemy ships or they teleport onto yours which is quite decent. It can be played solo or co-op up to three players. It's very polished and easy to lose a few hours to.

    I guess it would be properly described as a rogue-lite like FTL, not a roguelike.
