Resistance is not so futile.
When landing on a planet, your first job is to find your resistance contact. They know the local situation and will give you specific missions to help you rout the Emorian presence. Exploring the chat windows and the game’s inventory, it is obvious that the game has been made with VR in mind, though it does play just as well on a regular monitor.
Vehicles are a big thing in Push For Emor, partly because of the developers love of cockpit based VR games. He said “I want the player to see a vehicle and walk up to it, excited that they might be able use it, hoping for that ‘press to enter’ popup. In Push For Emor, if you see a vehicle, you will be able to fly/drive it at some point – even the mothership!”
Nothing says ‘OURS’ more than deploying a planet base full of Justicar troops. Once you have removed the Emorian threat, call down a base to secure the planet and help protect the local populous.
Space Travel & Combat
Once off planet, you are free to move between planets that have been unlocked at your space station. Each planet has it’s own problem with either space pirates or Emorian fighters. Not every enemy that you take out will be utterly destroyed. If you can blast the ship into a drifting wreck, you can board it and plunder it for credits and upgrades. Make a trip to your weapons locker first, there may be survivors, they may be upset….
Solar system tech levels
Different solar systems have different tech levels from lowfi, to steampunk to cyberpunk. Though the people of the worlds in these systems may have different cultures, they all have two things in common: occupation by Emorian troops and they need your help!
Minerals are needed to keep the war machine rolling. Luckily for us each solar system has a planet that is just ripe with raw resources for us to mine. Land on the planet & build your mines, but watch out for attacks by the indigenous population and Emorian troops! As you gather enough resources, build yourself a barracks and some movable turrets. Nothing can stop the Justicar’s push for Emor. Be warned – Emorian forces might have got to the planet before you. In that case, you are the one dodging the planet guards and turret towers!
Public alpha is available now from http://www.pushforemor.com/download which will include the first planet liberation, space combat, boarding of pirate ships and your home space station for both monitor and Oculus Rift.
The official release is marked for Q3 2016 and again will be supporting both Monitor & Oculus Rift with Vive & controller support to be added as they become available.
