A downloadable Environment for Windows

Space: 1999 is a classic science-fiction television show produced by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson in the mid 1970s. From the expansive Moonbase Alpha to the iconic Eagle Transporter, the design philosophy captured my imagination as a child and left me with feelings of nostalgia that linger to this day.

Space: 1999 VR is a fan made homage featuring environments and interactive set pieces from the TV show. The project is feature complete but I plan on adding content as time permits.

Virtual Reality Support:
SteamVR compatible with Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets.
