Project Stardust – Dev Log – SURVIVAL (0.89)


To visually recap progress made with SURVIVAL, I have published a trailer for the upcoming update. Check it out:

SURVIVAL will release November 2020

You can download the latest publicly available version (0.81) HERE

This development log is a more informal way for me to report progress and keep the outside world in on what has been going on with Project Stardust. If you’ve never heard of Project Stardust it is an X-Wing cockpit simulator in Virtual Reality created at the University of Utah for studying VR sickness. You can read more about the project HERE.
