About this project

Do you dream of flying without restrictions, getting as close as possible to mother nature? If yes, then 3D Paraglider is for you, a virtual paragliding Simulator / Game, for PC, Linux or Mac.

Experience realism like no other, hanging from just a few nylon strings, feeling the wind rush past you as you climp up high, experience almost real paragliding, look for thermals, stay in those to gain altitude, stay in the air and stay afloat for as long as possible, discovering all areas of the huge virtual maps of beautiful scenery, all over the world.

Paragliders are lightweight, free-flying glider aircraft with no rigid structure. Paraglider flights can last many hours and cover many kilometres.

All of this is also possible in 3D Paraglider, but with a pause option. The longer you stay up aloft, the more points you score.

Main goal of the game is to have fun and practice your paragliding skills or if you cannot afford to do the real thing.


The Simulator / Game is already in a playable format, what I am looking for is additional help and support from you to complete this, getting all the features added that are suggested, to make it an outstanding game!

For example with Oculus Rift support and also adding ground texture details will turn this simulator into a very realistic game top play, it would be amazing.

You can also support this game on the Steam Greenlight platform, please vote there to get it published, see on URL: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=230878031.


I am asking for your help to fund me to be able to integrate Oculus Rift and add further enhancements.

Risks and challenges

The game is already very close to completion, all main functionality is already added and is a nice and playable game.. so the risks are very minimal, what it needs are the final touches and additional features, such as:

-Support Oculus Rift! I think this game/sim would be amazing with Oculus Rift!
-Ground details to make it look even better.
-Get different types of paraglider wings added, with different flight characteristics. Including Motorised paragliders.
-Customisable flying locations, you choose where to fly!
-Add more included flying locations (Tropical) such as Bahamas, Jamaica, Hawaii, Tahiti.
-More missions or flying type exercises like touch the balloon or flourbag drop
-Aerobatic moves competitions.

If the funding is not reached the game will be finished but may just be lacking some of these features I want to add.
