Space Pirate Trainer is a first-person wave shooter, developed by I-illusions, in which you play as a space pirate armed with an array of weaponry and tasked with defending a space station from an endless barrage of malicious droids. The game includes a revolver with a laser sight, automatic laser pistol, shotgun, grenade launcher, and more. You can also pull out a shield to block incoming fire, or the Volton, which lets you grab droids and throw them around.
Space Pirate Trainer works best with a large play space. The developer created the game for the HTC Vive and took advantage of the platform’s room-scale tracking. It might be a good idea to pick up a third tracking sensor so you can set up the Rift with room-scale tracking to unlock Space Pirate Trainer’s full potential. The extra hardware purchase is justifiable for this award winning game. Space Pirate Trainer won "Best Sound Design," "Best Game," and "Best Independent Experience," at the 2016 Proto Awards.
