Cue light-bulb moment! What if you’re playing in first person (a natural go to for VR), are a gunner (shooter action), a rear gunner (seated play position, restricted forward facing view arc of 170 degrees = very high comfort factor) on a bomber (it’s moving at a constant speed, very high altitude so no concept of acceleration or speed = no motion sickness). Mix this with an intuitive look-to-aim system, plenty of fast moving targets to shoot (arcade action) and you end up with Bandit Six.
In Bandit Six all that info is built into your ‘real’ aiming reticule, in Salvo it’s part of the guns you crew. All the important info you need is always right where you’re looking (remember where you look is where you aim), it’s at a comfortable distance from your eyes (remember its 3D not flat so there is focal depth variations in a scene). Job done.
