Built from the ground up for VR, Cosmic Trip lets you experience real-time strategy like never before. Feel what it’s like to destroy alien enemies using futuristic weapons. Strategically build swarms of badass robots to defend yourself and gather materials.



Born from the team's love of virtual-reality, real-time strategy games and space -- "Cosmic Trip" places the gamer into the role of this space cowboy as he/she embarks on a dangerous voyage into the interstellar unknown. The design goal was to deliver a game that had the strategic base-building elements of a real-time strategy game, mixed with the immersion of virtual-reality, and packaged within a charming groovy 1960s retro space setting.

Real-Time Strategy in VR

The core gameplay of Cosmic Trip is aimed at being strategic RTS gameplay experience. However, in First Person Room Scale VR this is a quite different experience, since you are fully immersed in the midst of the action. The strategy of the game centers around the nodes on each planet, laid out in a network to allow the player to develop strategic choices on where to capture and defend, and how to allocate your resources effectively. We've explored weapon designs and interactions that feel exciting to use in VR. The goal of these weapon designs is easy to use, but hard to master. Skillful use of weapons can turn the tide of battle significantly.

Development Team

Funktronic Labs was founded by a team of ex-developers from the PixelJunk series. Fueled by their love of VR/AR, their mission is to develop unique and high-quality interactive experiences.


  • Intuitive VR-Native Controls - No more sitting and clicking! Cosmic Trip places you in the center of the action with some of the most intuitive controls found in a VR game to date.
  • Stunning Visuals - Nominated for best art direction at the 2016 Proto Awards and best visual design at the 2016 VR Core awards, Cosmic Trip features color-rich alien worlds and beautiful environments.
  • True Real-Time Strategy in VR - Cosmic Trip features a full no-compromises real-time strategy mode, built natively for VR with help from our Early Access community. Feel what it’s like to blast away enemies with your turret, listen to groovy tunes provided to you by your pal, friend bot and watch as your army of robots gather resources and destroy alien forces right in front of your face!
