We have now received sufficient requests - great thanks to everyone in this thread for participating! Those that are chosen can expect to receive a message in the next couple of days.


I understand that you’ve received sufficient requests now but I only just saw this thread as the Kickstarter project update email was sent out at around 3:30am EST (around 8 hours ago). I hadn’t even had a chance to read that update yet prior to sufficient requests being received.

As such I’m going to throw my name in the hat as well, just in case.

`Jiihaa now I see a light at the end of a tunnel. Maybe getting my controllers already next year_?
I have no idea of any VR games thanks for missing controllers. Keyboard and mouse is no option anywhere. I don’t have any kind of a game controller so I focus in porn while waiting mine. Is it possible to wank with swords in your hand???

You need to do better research. There are plenty of games that you can use a gamepad for a seated experiences.

Here are some to get you Started:

  1. SkyrimVR
  2. Alien Isolation with VR Mod
  3. Distance
  4. SublevelZero
  5. Detached
  6. InMindVR
  7. Elite Dangerous
  8. Obduction VR mode
  9. Asseto Corsa(sp?)
  10. Project Cars 1+2
  11. Dirt Rally games
  12. Starfighter CDF
  13. Everspace
  14. Gunjack
  15. Vox Machinae
  16. WarRobots VR Demo
  17. Telefrag
  18. Ethan Carter VR Dlc

That is an extremely small list. The maker of Alien Isolation Mod iirc has also made one for One of the Halo Games. There is also one for Grand theft Auto 5. Let’s also add VorpX to the mix.

A simple :video_game: controller is quite cheap. Hard to believe you don’t have even one.


I have half life alyx. What should I use for that? Also Gizmo VR player and Skybox VR player are useless with keyboard and mouse. Uh I never had any console. I tested some gamepad but could not figure out how it works…

As mentioned you need to look at game requirements.

HL:Alyx for example is quite clear you need motion controllers.

Driver4vr and KinectToVR have methodes to simulate VR motion controllers.

SkyrimVR and BigScreenBeta can be used with a ganepad.

Not sure otherwise thatbyou might have issues using a gamepad. The list I provided are many games that can be played without VR Motion Controllers.

Hello, I am an avid VR user who like to test your controller. As a consumer, I would mostly use these controllers in various mainstream games such as Pavlov, Beat Saber, Half-Life Alyx and Blade and Sorcery to name a few. I have experience with various motion controllers and virtual reality headsets, one of which being a 5K business edition whose FOV and OLED panels I enjoyed very much.

I am not an Backer per se, I am but a humble but curious enthusiast who would like to test your product.

My Computer Specifications:

Motherboard: MSI B450
CPU: Ryzen 3600
GPU: AMD 5700

Would love to test (and buy if good), since i have 3 HMDs but only 2 Index Controllers and my kids cant wait to get hands on VR :wink:

I would love to test these controllers because I’ve currently only been using a leapmotion strapped to my headset. Most games are unplayable even though the hand tracking is perfect, because it has to emulate physical controllers like the index.
I have Superhot VR, VorpX (PS2/N64 emulators, WoW, TF2, RE Village, Cyberpunk 2077, Oddworld Soulstorm etc.), Half Life Alyx, Unity, VRChat, Robo Recall, MS Flight Simulator 2020, PaintLab, GimzoVR, BeanVR, Epic Roller Coasters, etc.

Upgrading PC soon to I5-11400F, RTX 3070, 32GB RAM. More than happy to test on both machines
