Titans of Space 2.0 now available on Oculus Home!

Hi everyone,

Today I'm announcing that Titans of Space 2.0 is coming with full CV1 support (including Remote, standing support, adjusted art to minimize glare, etc).   I currently have plans to release it on May 24th on Steam, and hopefully on Oculus Home soon.    And it is now available! 

I'm really excited to be working on this again, and I've added a few features and a little bit of content since the last PC version that was hosted on Share to get things started.

Here's the Early Access launch trailer:


Here's an article posted on UploadVR this morning:
http://uploadvr.com/titans-space-2-arrives-early-access-next-week-rift-vive/

And here's a reddit thread where I am currently answering any questions:
https://www.reddit.com/r/oculus/comments/4k88po/titans_of_space_2_arrives_in_early_access_next/

The Titans of Space website has been updated, and here's a little snippet from there outlining what's new in 2.0:
  • The "Classic" tour, updated with full support for the Oculus Rift CV1, including Remote support.
  • Standing Support.
  • Side-by-Side Comparisons feature.
  • Gravity Probe Launcher feature.
  • Real Distance View feature.
  • Small content additions.
At this time, the roadmap includes five more major features and modes, plus additional content for the Solar System, and fresh new content beyond. New features and content will be released in regular chunks, always polished and playable, and always built from the ground up for VR.

Thanks. :)

    One of the undisputed best experiences for DK2, now coming to CV1. 
    Highly recommend this to everyone and anyone with a VR headset.

    Wow, I miss From Ashes!  Haven't seen that one in a long time.   Emotional roller coaster, that one was.

    Awesome, this was one of my absolute favorite experiences on Google Cardboard - and one I always showed to others. Just got my Rift yesterday, and definitely want to check it out on there. Keep up the amazing work!

    I remember the first time I experienced From Ashes, I was truly stunned. Would love to see it updated for CV1.

    Hi Drash, great job! After watching the video i was wondering if there will be an option of a more minimal ship like in 1.8? or a way to temporarily make it transparent while looking around. Again great job!

    Just replied to you on the Steam forum, so pasting my reply here too:

    If you're referring to the new "frame" the surrounds the ship, yes you can absolutely go back to the old behavior by turning "Protective Frame" off in the options menu. The new default behavior ("While Moving") simply makes it show up while the ship is moving in order to help those sensitive to motion by giving them a frame of reference no matter where they look.

    Hope that helps!

    Absolutely gutted!

    Saw this just now and raced over to Steam to get it - what the hell - 11 hours to go?

    ...i thought it was the 25th May.   :/

    looks cool drash! Looking forward to put my Nephews in there. Will there be a localized version in German for the smaller one?

    been looking forward to getting this up & running with CV1... checking the website regularly for news, got very excited yesterday when I saw it was on Steam... like @andyring, I had to calm down a bit when I realised there was a couple days to wait... probably my favourite DK2 experience

    Hey @Drash , will people who purchase this on Steam tomorrow be given OH codes or should I wait until Oculus is selling it directly?  I try to stick native to OH when possible just because I'm not a fan of Steam booting itself whenever I want to run a game on the Rift.  I know these cross-platform codes can be tricky to manage.

    Titans of Space 2.0 is actually now available on Oculus Home!   But you'll have to find it in the Browse All section until it's fully launched in the store.    

    If anyone runs into any issues, please let me know, and hope you enjoy it.

    And yep, cross-platform code situation is very tricky.  Handling it on a case-by-case basis as I don't have the time or experience to set up a dedicated page or automated mechanism like some devs have done.

    @Gerald, the old German translations are still in there, although I'll be updating it shortly.  It's still going to be incomplete and out of date though, since I'm changing/adding a lot of text in this development cycle.

    ahh cool - I admit I never noticed them (never put my nephews through it, but they are now 2 years older and I think it might be time to spark their interest in the universe :) )

    Instabought. Mostly as thank you to the developer for the time this was *the* go to demo for the Rift for me. Oh, the memories!

    superb experience, thoroughly enjoyed it on the DK2 & probably the least difficult purchase decision I've made so far for CV1

    Instabought albeit from Steam.  Wouldn't mind an Oculus Home code, but I understand if they can't be supplied.

    I noticed that a lot of content was missing (the moons and asteroid field mainly) from the demo. Is any of this planned to be put back in at any time?

    This has been a incredible show of support from you guys, I really can't thank you enough!

    I suspect you chose the "Short" tour option in the beginning?  If so, then it will skip most of the moons.   Choose the "Full" tour and you'll see all the stuff that was in earlier versions (plus a tiny bit more).

    And of course, it's Early Access, so more is coming in the next few updates.

    I bought it on Home last night. Even though my Rift is still a couple of months away. :lol:

    Bought it last night, fantastic as always and nice to be able to give a little back to you for all the hard work you have put in to the VR demos over the years and the awe you inspired the first time I put on my DK1.

    Send him an email (support at drashvr dot com) and nicely ask for an Oculus Home key.
    I also mentioned my Steam transaction ID and got a key.
    He mentioned in a Steam discussion that he handles per user basis so it could take a while.

    Cool! I can't wait to try it when my rift finally gets here.
