OUR
STORY

In 2006, VSTEP introduced Ship Simulator, aimed at all maritime enthusiasts. Despite becoming an immediate hit, it did not generate a successor after Ship Simulator Extremes. Ship Simulator instead formed the basis for our professional maritime simulator NAUTIS.

Over time we worked hard to establish ourselves as reliable simulation software developers by working closely with industry experts. However, all these years later, we are finally returning to deliver a next-generation ship simulator to our very first customers: home users.  

OUR
MISSION

We did not forget you – we just did not have the right product. But now it is time to use all that knowledge we gained over the years and present you with a product that truly fits your needs. Though NAUTIS Home is still in early development, it is growing strong.

Our mission is to enable ship simulator enthusiasts to experience realistic simulation anytime and anywhere. We are committed to building a full-fledged product, thus NAUTIS Home will be built alongside volunteer testers. So, are you ready to sail with us again?

UPDATES

April 7th, 2020

Last month, we invited several maritime enthusiasts to our HQ in Rotterdam to meet the team and participate in a NAUTIS Home workshop. On March 4th, we welcomed 7 participants who were willing to share their ideas and expectations for this project!

Our team started the workshop with presenting the concept of the NAUTIS Home project. After that, the participants were able to test a prototype version of NAUTIS Home and also sail around on our professional NAUTIS simulator setup. Next, an interactive workshop followed, where all the participants were asked to create and present their perfect version of NAUTIS Home. The presentations encouraged great discussions that resulted in valuable input for the upcoming stages of the project.

We once again would like to thank all the participants for visiting our office and sharing their time, energy and excellent ideas.

For now, our team is focusing on evaluating the development roadmap and necessary resources. It is not an easy task having in mind that we are working on several big projects at once. Working from home and adjusting to the current situation makes it more difficult. We hope that in the coming month, we will have more clarity and will be able to proceed full speed ahead.

That is it for now! We hope you and your families are safe and healthy in this rather difficult times.

In November, a small group of people were invited to try out the initial prototype version of NAUTIS Home. During the testing week, the following topics were covered: visuals of the product, vessel controls, content, and overall product perception. So where are we now? After the prototype research, we have analyzed the results and are busy evaluating what should be included in the development roadmap. Further research will continue this quarter, so we will keep you posted!

We want to make sure that the final product fully meets your needs. We are a small company with big ambitions and the release of NAUTIS Home in 2020 is one of them.

October 31st, 2019

The signup for Pre-Alpha Prototype testing has been closed. We will soon begin the next phase with a small group of enthusiastic testers.
