Sopwith VR

A VR Game available for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Windows Mixed Reality & Valve Index

Single-player virtual reality World War One flight combat simulator inspired by David L. Clark's classic game from 1984. Dogfight and shoot down Fokker triplanes with your Sopwith biplane. Features touch controls, detailed physics, destructible environments, and AI enemy pilots.

This is an early prototype, only tested on Vive so far. Things may be incomplete and broken.

If you crash your plane, press the application button on both controllers simultaneously to restart the game.

Squeeze the grip buttons on both controllers simultaneously to recenter the view.

Control the throttle and yoke by grabbing them with the trigger button. They don't recenter when you let go. Control the rudder by pressing the touchpad on either controller and moving the controller left or right. The rudder will return to neutral position when you release the touchpad.

To fire the gun, press the application menu button with the hand holding the yoke.
