«Anshar Online» by OZWE Games presented as launch game for new Oculus Go device

Within the frame of GDC 2018, Oculus launched their new Oculus Go, a new stand-alone VR headset offered at a lower price, making VR even more accessible to a large audience and increasing reach potential for developers.

GDC 2018 attendees are the first to experience the new Oculus Go, with three Made-with-Unity games on the new headset: «They Suspect Nothing» by Coatsink, «Catan VR» by Experiment 7 and «Anshar Online» by Lausanne based OZWE Games, and part of the SWISSGAMES delegation.

«Anshar Online» is a multiplayer co-op space shooter, uniting all players in one and the same universe where the Samsung Gear VR, Rift, or Oculus Go headsets are supported. The fact that OZWE is selected as launch game proves that Swiss VR is at the forefront of the industry.
