Endless Reach features a dynamic spawn combat system; such that the more enemies you kill, the more enemies get spawned. Basic gameplay has you avoiding enemies, for the most part, until you begin collecting power-ups. Each power-up will increase your fire rate, up to a maximum of five times. Collecting the fifth power-up triggers Limit Break mode, a 15 second firing frenzy that not only destroys everything in it's path, but also provides you with a shield that prevents all damage. Limit Break mode comes at a price, however, as after 15 seconds your ship will begin to overload, requiring a purge. A successful purge will release a massive explosion, destroying all enemies in the blast radius. Fail to hit the button at the appropriate time, and your ship will collapse into itself, ending your mission!

PROPOSED FEATURES
These features have yet to be implemented, unless otherwise noted
  • Rare loot from bosses to upgrade your starfighter
  • Starfighter repair and upgrade hangar



We'd originally made Endless Reach to target Windows Phones, as a submission to the Microsoft Unity Game Developer Contest 2014[unity3d.com]. While the winners of the contest won't be announced until August, the game is currently available on Windows Phone, and we recently ported to Android as well.

However, our true passion at Soverance Studios has always been PC gaming. We're extremely excited by recent developments in virtual reality, allowing us to develop an entirely new build of the game specifically designed for the Oculus Rift headset. You can download the latest VR beta demo at our website: http://endlessreach.soverance.com. Our ultimate goal with Endless Reach is to bring old school arcade shmups to virtual reality, providing players with a game that fuses familiar action with an alternative perspective that helps launch a cherished genre into the future of games.

We want to bring the classic, beloved shmup genre into a new age and create a shmup unlike any before it. And we want to do it with the justice shmup fans deserve. A version of Endless Reach with more gameplay features, smarter AI, better sound effects, full 3D models, all new animations, and special features specific to virtual reality. We can do it, through your support and feedback. If you like what we're doing here, vote us up!



Soverance Studios[www.soverance.com] was originally founded in 2012 by Scott McCutchen and Matt Whitt, two friends from an early age who simply dreamed of making great games. Our passion for gaming was fueled in part by Final Fantasy XI, a major MMO that we had spent many years playing together, and later modding - before turning that passion into a non-commercial fan game Final Fantasy XI: Fighter.

It was not long after that when our imaginations were captured by advances in virtual reality, and we ordered one of the early Oculus Rift dev kits. Today, we work to bring unconventional experiences into virtual reality through the innovation of popular genres. Our first original IP, Endless Reach, aims to help bring arcade shoot 'em ups into the next generation of gaming.

I used to wear streth armstrong as a belt until someone pulled it off and beat my ass with it. I looked like I had been disciplined at sea. I couldn't sit for 2 weeks and I had to use a donut because my scrotal bag had split and I could only have 3 stitches because I waited too long to tell me my asshole step dad duane. fuck you duane you aren't my real dad. i'm glad my mom cheated on you with barry the black guy and you are now in prison for trying to sell fake pokemon cards on ebay
