History


Firesteel Interactive is an independent game development company started by two brothers in 2017. We have both been gaming since we were kids, playing mostly shooters and strategy games. As soon as we discovered VR, the huge potential of it became clear to us. We started brainstorming on how we could get some of our of favorite genres into VR. We settled on a tank simulator called Tanks VR, which we have been developing for almost a year now. Our goal is to make Tanks VR the best VR tank simulator on the market.
