For space enthusiasts, teachers, students, aspiring astronauts, and history aficionados, experiences like Go For Launch: Mercury are what sets VR apart from any other medium. Suit up, strap in, and set your sights to the skies, and don’t miss your chance to relive history in a way that only virtual reality can offer.

Very good for what it is, which is not a game but an accurate recreation of history.

IMPORTANT TIPS:
-Unless you’re a die hard history buff, go straight to Mission 3 which is the orbital one
-Use the “external view” button (‘A’ on Oculus Touch) regularly to see what’s happening, since you can’t see a lot from inside the capsule.
-There is a “fast-forward” control, it’s the left stick on Oculus Touch. Without this you’ll be sitting doing nothing for long stretches of time.

Enjoy!

This game has a lot of promise but fails to shine through. Controller issues and a lack of meaningful ability to impact anything are major limiting factors. As near as I can tell, there isn’t really a way to screw things up even with the assistant turned off. Most steps seem to be handled for you regardless of whether you take the correct actions or not. With better guidance and actual consequences to errors as well as better controls, this has the potential to be a really good game.

Tried playing. Unable to pick up anything or figure out how to launch the rocket.

Seems broken.

I can hear JFK in the background of some loud music, but I quit after sitting in an office for like 10 minutes listening. There must be more but I ran out of patience.
