This wasn’t on my bingo card for 2022, but Paradox’s sci-fi 4X Stellaris is getting a spin-off (opens in new tab): a VR “action-roguelite set in Paradox’s sci-fi milieu” for the Meta Quest 2. It comes from Fast Travel Games, who also made a Cities: Skylines VR experience (opens in new tab) once upon a time.

It’s called Ghost Signal: A Stellaris Game, and it looks very Star Trek indeed. You play the captain of the good ship Aurora as it ventures into the void on a quest for the titular ghost signal emanating from somewhere in the unplumbed depths of space. That name should ring a bell for Stellaris players: it’s the thing that kicks off the Contingency late-game crisis in regular games of Stellaris. It’s basically a galaxy-wide genocide of all sapient life, so, you know, you’ll probably want to put a stop to that.
