Galaxity: A Brief Introduction

Well, I’ll say one thing for Galaxity, which is another social VR platform available through the Early Access Program on Steam: it’s got cute in spades! It’s by a Korean company called MammoSix. Here’s a brief promotional video:

Here’s what my avatar looks like:

My feet appear to be sunken into the floor!

The whole world seems to have a chunky, blocky, almost Minecraftesque aesthetic:

Galaxity offers a variety of things to do: baseball, soccer, sword fighting, watching videos, walking across a pipe laid between two buildings high in the air… but, like most of these new platforms, it’s deserted. None of these are much fun to do on your own 🙁

Also, the controls take a bit of getting used to. One strange thing is that you can choose to walk, or teleport…but you have to pick one or the other; you can’t have both options available at the same time!

Galaxity is cute, but like most of these newer social VR platforms intended for children, it needs more features (and more promotion). I’ll add it to my ever-growing list of social VR/virtual worlds, and I’ll be keeping an eye on it as it develops over time.
