The war between these two interstellar species began in Dark Horse comic books back in 1989, and it came to arcades not long after in 1994. But sometime in the mid-90s, that battle almost came to video game consoles in a completely unexpected fashion: a cosmic football game.

Instead, this is an intriguing twist on the concept in the form of a Groundhog Day VR video game. Like weatherman Phil Connors, the player relives the same day over and over again until they figure out how to break the time loop. Read More »
