A weighty tactical VR mech simulator blended with responsive action.
Vox Machinae is an indie shooting game made and published by Space Bullet Dynamics Corporation. Earth’s resources have been depleted. People try to migrate to where there is work, but many end up detained in border camps living off what scraps the governments are able to provide. Powerful corporations explore the heavens in search of raw materials. You are one of the lucky few to be a certified pilot, able to take on the distant mining jobs. The rough alien landscapes can only be navigated by enormous walking robots called GDRs or “Grinders”. Rivalry between the corporations is heating up, your job is about to get a lot more dangerous.

Vox Machinae Review
Vox Machinae is what you'd expect when you think VR Mechs. You pilot one of a few customizable mechs. Options are typical, with some light, medium and heavy classes, with arament to match. Take command and pilot a giant fighting machine in an escalating war between powerful corporations. Select your GDR ("Grinder") chassis and customize it with a powerful arsenal of lasers, missiles, cannons and more as you’re pitted against rival Grinder squads. Outstanding VR controls and immersion (everything in the cockpit is physically simulated and most can be interacted with). Extremely fun, tactical mech gameplay that hearkens back to the best of the MechWarrior days with a dash of Steel Battalion and, oddly, a little Tribes flavor thrown in there for good measure. Engage in seamless drop-in multiplayer action with no loot-box or micro-transaction nonsense. Vox Machinae respects your time, and your wallet. Multiplayer works great and communicating with other players while seeing their avatars on the com screens really is a great idea. Very well polished even before release, and so far is the only VR game that really captures the essence of piloting a mech. Also loving the option to run as Steam or Oculus, as well as crossplay.
