The VR Game Launch Roundup: Nature, Ghosts and a Little Pottery
As it’s the end of the week VRFocus takes a look forward at what’s to come in the next seven days. There’s a nice mixed selection covering horror, stealth, the animal world and even pottery.
Ecosphere – PHORIA
Not really a videogame more an interactive collection of 360-degree videos, Ecosphere nature documentary series. Featuring content from the jungles of Borneo to the rich coral reefs of Raja Ampat, viewers will be able to see a diverse selection of wildlife created in collaboration with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).

DreamBack VR – Come Over Gaming
A psychological horror where you have to escape an abandoned Victorian mansion, DreamBack VR doesn’t feature action elements like guns. You’ve got to hold your nerves and explore the building, solving puzzles and looking for clues to last the night.
Spectro – Borrowed Light Studios
Released as an Early Access title in October 2019, Spectro is a colourful ghostbusting experience where you play the owner of a ghost detective agency, going out to explore haunted houses and ridding them of their malevolent spirits.
République VR – Camouflaj
Originally a Gear VR experience, République VR was Camouflaj’s first VR title, exploring the perils of government surveillance in the internet age. The stealth videogame has been upgraded with new 3D assets and immersive puzzles to make use of the more powerful PC VR hardware.
Let’s Create! Pottery VR – Infinite Dreams
The only PlayStation VR game on the list, Let’s Create! Pottery VR is exactly as you’d imagine. Sit down, get comfy and create some pottery in a nice chilled environment, great for winding down from a stressful day.
