Motion sickness is often an issue for many VR titles. Seeking Dawn for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift has 2 ways to combat it: A motion sickness helper (in the setting menu), which is something that the developer suggest you to try if you are prone to motion sickness. The other is well, the locomotion itself. The game offers 3 options for movement. One of the option consist of an item known as the “Personal Teleporter”, which ‘Instantaneously transmits mass forms and consciousness across the space time continuum’.

In the year 2097, several planets in our system and nearby star systems, including Alpha Centauri, have been colonized by humanity. An entire solar system is in the grips of a corrupt political entity called “The United Federation of Sol” (UFS).
The people of this time are violently oppressed and live in fear and despair due to the malicious intent of the UFS.
Humanities only hope for freedom lies in the hands of Lt. James Murphy, a newborn of the first settlers of the Alpha Centauri system. Murphy joined what is known as “The Republic of Alpha Centauri” (RAC) at a very young age. His intent was to prove himself in battle during our first attempt at regaining independence. We like to call this our “independence War”. We have lost many battles, and worse yet, many young men and women. RAC is currently on the verge of being completely overrun by the UFS Armada.
The war has leaded us here; Donovan Crater. Will we ever see the light at the end of this tunnel?
