This week, we released a bunch of titles and updates across the Oculus Platform. Here’s a rundown of the highlights:
Captain ToonHead vs The Punks from Outer Space
There’s a new captain onboard: Captain ToonHead! The hero we got stuck with. Captain ToonHead vs The Punks from Outer Space is a true first-person tower defense game, designed for VR. Move all over the map, hammering away to upgrade your towers, while throwing overpowered chanclas recklessly. You'll take manual control of your towers to unleash streams of heavy-metal powered hot sauce and shoot electric beams from weaponized pizza at your enemies. But shooting alone will not defeat the waves of Cyber-C.H.I.C.K.E.N.s and Terra-S.H.A.R.K.s! You’ll have to be strategic if you want to save the EnerCubes and defeat Nicholas Voorhees' P.U.N.K. army!
Perfect For: Fans of Shooty Fruity, Acron: Attack of the Squirrels!, and Spacefolk City
Developer: Teravision Games
Available On: Oculus Quest Platform // Rift Platform

A dystopian future. An authoritarian regime. A tale of violence, intrigue, and hope. Swing from towering skyscrapers and battle deadly enemies as you fight to free your city from the evil that consumes it. Will you bow to the forces of oppression? Or will you have the strength to Resist? Resist is a single-player action RPG designed exclusively for Quest. With a kinetic swinging system, intense combat, and a fully immersive story, Resist is the VR experience you’ve been waiting for. Explore the city of Concord, uncover its secrets, and follow Sam Finch as she fights to free herself and her city.
Built for designers and remote product teams, ShapesXR is a VR creation and collaboration tool. ShapesXR aims to democratize 3D content creation, letting you select a premade scene or start from scratch, depending on your comfort level. You can manipulate simple shapes at scale, change materials, research user flows, and pitch scenes in motion with an easy-to-use staging system. Everything’s low-fidelity by design, so folks won’t get hung up on the details too early in the design process. You can import 3D models and images, and you can export and share from VR, via the web, through the Unity plugin, and (soon) to 3D models.
Perfect For: Fans of Gravity Sketch, SculptrVR, and Tilt Brush
Available On: Oculus Quest Platform
