By now most Rift owners should have received their $15 store credit from Oculus, which was issued by the company as a way smooth things over with customers after a major blunder last week resulted in nearly every Rift headset around the world to be temporarily rendered useless for hours.
So, now that you have that free store credit in your Oculus account, you may be wondering what to spend it on? Well, here are a few suggestions on games that you can purchase now for just $15 bucks on the Oculus Store.
Space Pirate Trainer
Space Pirate Trainer is the official trainer for wannabe space pirates. Remember those awesome classic arcade cabinets? Imagine if those were immersive…Space Pirate Trainer puts you in one of those; fighting off relentless waves of droids with all the weapons and gadgets you would ever need as a Space Pirate. You better dodge some of those incoming lasers though, since just using your shields won’t get you in the top rankings. Pick up your blasters, put on your sneakers, and dance your way into the Space Pirate Trainer hall of fame. Space Pirate Trainer is available on the Oculus Store for $14.99.
