Inter Solar 83: A Retro Space Adventure Coming to PC VR
Inter Solar 83, an upcoming PC VR game, will take players on a thrilling journey through space with an 80s aesthetic. Developed by Joe Chisholm of First Time Games, this solo project combines survival mechanics and space exploration to provide an unparalleled VR adventure.
Ship Management and Resourcefulness
In Inter Solar 83, players will face the challenge of spaceship management as they navigate the vastness of space. Repairing their vessel, conducting research, and crafting resources will be essential for their survival. The developer describes the gameplay as a test of wits and resourcefulness.
The game features a procedurally generated universe, offering seamless hyperspace travel without loading screens. This ensures a smooth and immersive experience for players as they explore the cosmos.
A Story of Remnants and Artifacts
As players venture through space, they will come across remnants of crashed ships and mysterious ancient alien artifacts. These discoveries will unfold narratives and add depth to the game’s storyline. Inter Solar 83 promises to provide a sense of awe and solitude in the vastness of space.
Kickstarter Campaign and Exclusive Rewards
First Time Games will launch a Kickstarter campaign for Inter Solar 83 on November 12. Backers will have the opportunity to secure exclusive in-game content, such as appearing in the game or having a planet named after them. However, it is crucial to exercise caution when pledging money, as Kickstarter is not a guaranteed preorder system.

The early access release of Inter Solar 83 is scheduled for Q4 2024 on PC VR, with the full release planned for Q4 2025. At present, there are no plans to bring the game to other platforms, as confirmed by First Time Games.
