Thanks for signing up!

Thank you for signing up to play the Shattered Tower demo! We are excited for you play our game. Because Shattered Tower isn’t available yet on the Oculus Store, you will need to sideload the app on to your VR headset. Don’t worry though, the process is not difficult and you contact us if you run into any issues.

Ready to play?

The Shattered Tower demo is for Oculus Quest. You can download the demo by clicking the “Download Demo” button. Then you will need to sideload the app on to your headset. To do this you can follow the instructions here.

If you prefer to avoid using Android SDK and command prompt, you can download adbLink here which will allow you to sideload the app too. Please read on for instructions on installing with adbLink.


After downloading adbLink and installing it, start the program.


Put the VR headset in developer mode to be able to sideload apps on to it.
To do this, you have to be a registered “developer”. This process is free. Go to on your PC and create an organization. You’ll be asked to accept the developer agreement. If you are already part of an organization then you won’t need to do this part.

Now that you’re a “developer,” open the Oculus app on your smartphone or tablet. In the ‘Settings tab,’ tap on the headset and tap ‘More settings.’ In the list, you should now see Developer Mode. Switch it on.


Plug in your VR headset to your computer with the USB cable it came with.


Now you will need to install the PC driver to allow your PC to install apps on the standalone VR headset. Download the driver from When the download finishes, extract the zip file into a folder. Now right click on ‘android_winusb.inf’ and click ‘Install.’

If right clicking to install does not work (it may not on Windows 7), you will have to take some extra steps to install the driver. Here are the following steps if right click/install does not work:

  • After plugging in the VR headset, make sure it’s turned on and the PC recognizes it.
  • Open the Device Manager.
  • Look for ‘VR Headset’ in the list (it’s usually under ‘Portable Devices’ or ‘Other Devices’).
  • Right click it and select ‘Update Driver Software.’
  • Select ‘Browse My Computer for Driver Software.’
  • Select ‘Let Me Pick from a List of Device Drivers on my Computer.’
  • Select ‘Have Disk.’
  • Select ‘Browse’ and navigate to the folder containing the ‘android_winusb.inf.’
  • Select ‘OK’ and follow the installation process. If Windows already automatically installed a default driver, you may have to uninstall it first before you can install ‘android_winusb.inf.’
  • After successful installation, your computer should fully recognize your VR headset now that you’ve installed the correct drivers for it.
  • Keep your headset connected to your PC and put it on. You should get the prompt asking you if you want to activate USB Debugging.
  • Check the box that says ‘Remember this computer’ and select ‘Yes’ to allow Debugging.


With the headset still plugged into the PC, go back to the adbLink program. Click the ‘Refresh ABD’ button and your headset should show up in the list of ‘Connected Devices’ and it’s ‘Connection Status’ will say ‘USB connection.’

Now click the ‘Install APK’ button and locate the demo APK file that you downloaded from this web page. Click it and then click ‘Open.’

Click ‘Yes’ when it asks if you want to install it. It will then install the demo on your headset.


After it finishes installing, put on the headset. You should see a new section in your Library called ‘Unknown Sources.’ This will contain any VR apps you installed via sideloading. Now you can play the demo!
