When you think VR shooter game, you likely think of putting a virtual reality headset on and sitting or standing in one place while controlling your virtual character. The Hover Junkers game takes a different approach however, allowing you to use your body to pull off gestures that have in-game implications.

Revealed at the Valve VR showcase, Hover Junkers lets you do things like physically raise your hand and wave it to surrender to an in-game opponent, or even use your hand to distract someone. This improvised non-verbal communication adds a whole new dimension to the game.

Ultimately, the introduction of gesture control movements to this VR shooter adds a degree of freedom that is truly revolutionary in any form of gaming, not just virtual reality gaming.
