What is Navy Pilot Simulator?  

Navy Pilot Simulator is a story based virtual reality experience unlike any other. The game will be available for both the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive.  Experience what it’s like to train to become a navy pilot. As gamers, we search for experiences that aren’t possible in our daily lives. With Navy Pilot Simulator, we’re able to bring the armchair pilot into the cockpit of a fighter jet. We have long wanted to develop a true pilot simulator, but this wasn’t possible until the advent of virtual reality. The Oculus Rift allows us to offer an experience that previous generations of hardware aren’t capable of. Our goal is to create a true to life experience as opposed to a game.  

The Game  

Navy Pilot Simulator is a story driven pilot experience. Conquering the game will require a skillset of hand eye coordination, decision making, and a tough stomach. You start out as a low ranked Ensign (below a junior lieutenant) tasked with learning the functionality of the F-18 Super Hornet. As you progress through the ranks, the missions become more challenging. The experience takes you through basic take off missions, missile target practice, harrowing carrier landings in storm conditions, and beyond.

Why Kickstarter? 

While the game is 70% complete, funding allows us to complete the game that we originally envisioned. Funding also allows us to add additional features and wishlist items from our fans and customers. 

The Team 

The team consists of a handful of top developers and two business partners who wish they studied game development in College. We thank you for your support and help in creating our pilot experience. Your input, feedback, and contributions are crucial to the success of Navy Pilot Simulator.   

Risks and challenges

We have been working on Navy Pilot Simulator since the release of the Oculus Rift. We are committed to completing the best possible game we can.

Creating a game with only a handful of developers is definitely a challenge. We have focused on the absolute core fundamentals of what makes Virtual Reality a special and unique experience.

We feel extremely responsible for backer money, and we want to deliver an awesome experience leading up to the game.

We see Navy Pilot Simulator as a foundation, and we plan to support the game extensively post release with additional content.
