Skyworld VR strategy game looks kind of like playing with toys

Skyworld is a new turn based strategy designed for use with VR headsets.

Skyworld comes to us from Vertigo Games, and will be compatible with Valve’s Vive headset.

IGN reports Vertigo has worked in close collaboration with the SteamVR project, so Skyworld will support both seated VR and full-room features.

Think about that while you check out the video below. The models look so much like toys. Imagine having them running around on your floor around you.

In addition to building an army, Skyworld tasks the player with managing their economy. It’s due later this year.

Can you imagine this combined with Microsoft’s AR object manipulation tech? You’d sit on the floor and push the little soldiers around and the other army would fight back. This is so glorious I got a little bit teary thinking about it.
