Description: Orch Star is a real-time strategy game set in an immersive space universe where orchs and elves fight for domination. Control your fleet of orch ships using either a traditional desktop setup or VR gear as you conquer the planets necessary to seize control of strategic systems.

Perform quick, cunning manoeuvres to crush your opponents as you lead a rebellion through the 15 increasingly difficult scenarios of the campaign. Challenge other players in online battles as you show the world the great warlord you’ve become, or explore the Level Editor and create beautiful scenarios to share with the world.

Review: Orch Star might not have been made for VR, but it has to be said it looks pretty good in VR and some real effort has been made to make the best use of the motion controllers. This is mostly a strategy game in which planets battle each other and while you are often far away when you get into the battle the game can look rather amazing. There are three game modes to choose from which are campaign, multiplayer and skirmish and there is loads of content to enjoy here even if the online play is a little quiet. This isn’t the deepest of strategy games, but it is well worth a look if you love the genre.
