That’s right, Valve has released a new game, and this time, they’re going to spaaaaace! Set in the Portal universe and even featuring our old enemies Aperture Science, Valve’s new release is less of a game and more of a testing ground. “Moondust: A technology demo for Knuckles EV2”, is about exactly what it says in the demo video – creating content for developers who are using the Knuckles VR2 handset, a controller for interacting with virtual reality settings.
The game is only available as part of a devkit for users of the controller, and its purpose is to test out various functionalities and mechanics by taking users through the process of maintaining a moonbase for Aperture Science.
From Moondust’s Steam page (which is the only way to access the demo): “With moon-based conversion gel stores running dangerously low, Aperture looks to the stars for a new source of the valuable portal conductor. Take control of a giant robot on the moon, spearheading the Aperture Lunar Resources Initiative.”
You may not be able to play the demo, but you can watch the trailer for it below.
