“A Casual Spatial RTS, designed for VR”

void LINK brings the charm of early days Real-Time Strategy (RTS) games to high-end VR: Using both hands players direct ships through volumetric sectors of toy-box interstellar space, gathering resources, building their fleet and going to battle against rivals.

With a minimalist user interface and no-frills RTS mechanics void LINK allows for instant casual play, where complex strategy arises from players’ ingenuity, rather than from extensive rulesets or tech-trees. 

While real-time strategic interaction with “spatial maps”, truly 3-dimensional battlegrounds,  was pioneered by games like Homeworld more than a decade ago, void LINK is one of the first products to build on the unique advantages of modern VR peripherals (HTC Vive, Oculus Rift) to make that experience headache-free, by letting players implement their strategies in 3D space simply by moving their hands through it.

Adding some optional depth, void LINK comes with a Minecraft-style ship editor for creating custom battle units from basic building blocks (Laser, Propulsion, Sensors, …). Players can design and introduce new unit types, even during battle, to counteract specific threats …or just for the fun of it.


“Enlisted by an intergalactic mining consortium as one of their many ‘Field Coordiators’, the player runs resource extraction operations in far-out regions of space. Depending on their remote control interface, ‘void LINK’, Coordinators find themselves pitted against each other and engaged in series of battle encounters, where winners climb the ‘universal’ leader board.”
