Anti Air: is a VR homage to the best of retro gaming.
As the Cubicon Conjuntion begins, descent to various planets across the galaxy and blast away the Cubicon invaders. For the Cubicons it is not just a matter of cubes, it is about life and death.
Use a variety of advanced weaponry to battle these Alien invaders. Resist waves of different Cubicon invaders which enter the planet's troposphere from the outer space. Their goal is to eradicate everything on the planet, starting with you – the planet's first line of defense and its last chance.
Select a planet to save and get your weapons ready. Bring enough ammunition with you to the ground, as this might be the last chance to preserve that planet in the universe.
Protect the various planets in the galaxy from the elusive and vicious attackers. They will send their best warriors in different formations to outwit your every move.

Where did the idea for the game come from?
Having grown up with a lot of the old retro games, these games are a big inspiration.
For some or more reasons my childhood experiences left a strong ingrained impression
and the essence of these revive at the surface of my thoughts regularly, especially when it comes to video game development.
Some of the games that are a big inspiration for Anti Air have been Missile Command where you have to shoot down missiles from a central location, another game is Space Invaders for its variety of enemies and strong iconic/artistic characters. Centipede and Asteroids have also been a great sources of inspiration since they show breakable enemies/obstacles that intensify the player its situation and when engaging them, they increasingly intensify the situation.
Discontinue has been the first VR title I developed, it was like tipping my toe into Virtual Reality(VR) game development. After that experience this idea originated of bringing retro gameplay features to VR, and develop a homage to retro gaming on this new technology/platform. Hence the birth of Anti Air.
