We have just shipped VR Regatta 0.2 for HTC Vive on Steam.

The most important feature: You can control sails by grabbing mainsheet

With this new feature, your both hands can be busy holding the tiller and mainsail sheet. Your Vive sailing is now even more immersive :-)

Another important feature in this version - you can buy “coins” to support VR Regatta development. Coins can be used to “vote” on what should we work next:

The next big feature we are currently working on is multiplayer.

VR Regatta is Early Access free to play game. We hope that many of you are excited about sailing in virtual reality. If you want more and better sailing in VR please consider voting with your wallet by funding our project.

It can be as little as 0.99$ or as much as $99.00 :-)

A daily rate of a good developer in Australia can easily be above $1000AUD and that just an example of the costs (click here to fully fund developer for 1 day).

We need many of you to help, if we want to sustain VR Regatta development over longer period of time, so please consider sharing this post with friends.

Have you already played and enjoyed VR Regatta? You can think of this coin donation as “pay what you want” model :-) ( use this link http://store.steampowered.com/buyitem/468240/100/42 and change 42 to number of gold coins you want to donate.)

You can give $19.80 donation by clicking here.

PS. If you have funds in your Steam wallet, you can experience in app-purchase in VR as well - check it out :-)
