A standard non-VR version is included for those without the Rift.

While, Powergrid™ is designed for the Oculus Rift, creating an unparalleled experience from within the virtual reality, a non-VR (NVR) version is also bundled with every tier for standard PC users.


NOTE: This is a stand-alone art gallery application. We are investigating adding multiplayer functionality (shared space, avatars, voice chat, etc...) in the future as a free update so we can all hang out in the same virtual space together.


early access / version history:

Powergrid™ is launching with Early Access at Pre-Alpha. This is a Work-In-Progress (and it may always be evolving). Your early support helps fund independent development and pushing this project further and further.

FREE UPDATES are deployed to patrons as the gallery expands and evolves over time. Purchased package contents subject to change.

    This project could resume again in the future, with new orders opening up then and free updates still provided to all existing customers.
