Are you sad because you keep rolling assistant when you really wanted wizard?

Now you can fix that with
SPACE STATION 13 VIRTUAL REALITY AUTO CHESS.

From the makers of ROBOTICS SIMULATOR and SOME QUESTIONABLE BANS, the brothers TABSKI and NABSKI bring you

WHY?
Autochess is the best flavor of the month right now, and Space Station 13 was clearly the platform to continue on this. With his ABILITY TO CODE and my KNOWLEDGE OF SPACE STATION MEMES, MODELING, AND SOUND EDITING (Hulkamania did some voice lines too). Completed in one week for a Game Jam at a school that neither of us go to any more it features: Fully 3D Virtual Reality Environment, Hands and a body, The ability to play a friend, The ability to play both sides if you don't have a friend, 17 Units, A better economy than the one in actual space station, The ability to sell and upgrade units, a red GO button to skip the rest of the buy phase.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT AUTOCHESS IS AND YOU DIDN"T EXPLAIN IT YET
In autochess games you buy units, put them on the field, then they fight each other. You typically try to make good teams based off synergies and such, but in this case you just need to figure out how to balance piercing, knockback, ranged, and melee units. The stats are all nice small numbers you can wrap your head around because SOMEONE DIDN'T WANT EVERYTHING TO BE BASED OFF ACTUAL SPACE STATION VALUES. If you still don't get it here's a gameplay video.

WHAT'S THIS ABOUT VIRTUAL REALITY?
That's right, it's just for VR! If you don't have a headset then you're a peasant and we don't care about you! Disregard the fact that I've only had a headset for three weeks at this point. If there's enough interest it's possible that a PC port will get made but don't count on it.

WHAT'S THE FUTURE OF THIS PROJECT ARE YOU GOING TO EXPAND ON IT?
That depends on how much fun we keep having with it. It wouldn't be hard to expand the roster, but there's not major features planned unless there's an unexpected amount of interest in it.

Remember those friends that you needed to play with? We've also made a discord that you can join if you want to try to find a match. Just yell at people there and hope they respond. https://discord.gg/ScPDhZQ

Clowns are either amazing or worthless depending on how robust your placement is.
