The VR Game Launch Roundup: Retro Rabbit Workouts
As most of you should be in some sort of isolation, minimising the need to step outside unless absolutely necessary you’ll all want something to do. You can only paint the walls or vacuum so many times, so why not treat yourself to some new virtual reality (VR) content. As VRFocus does every Friday, here’s a list of five titles arriving next week you might be interested in.
SoundSelf: A Technodelic – Andromeda Entertainment
It’s a stressful time at the moment so anything that can chill you out must be worth a pop. SoundSelf: A Technodelic is just that, a psychedelic and relaxing VR experience guided by your own voice. “Delve into a hypnotic world of light and sound which helps players descend into a deep, trance-like state,” notes the description.
Supernatural – Within
An Oculus Quest exclusive, Supernatural jumps on the VR fitness wave offering players the chance to cut orbs and manoeuvre in and around obstacles all to the lates beats. It does things a little differently to other VR games being subscription-based, the app featuring professional coaching, leaderboards, Bluetooth heart rate integration and a mobile companion app.
Pixel Ripped 1995 – ARVORE
A homage to retro gaming and a sequel to 2018’s Pixel Ripped 1989, Pixel Ripped 1995 puts you in the shoes of 9-year-old David who has to battle an evil goblin, the Cyblin Lord, from the first title. Set across six levels that contain nods to 1990s action RPGs, brawlers, platformers, space shooters, and racing games, VRFocus has been looking forward to this one.
Down the Rabbit Hole – Cortopia Studios
A magical adventure set before Alice ever stepped foot in Wonderland, Down the Rabbit Hole has already arrive for other VR headsets and now it’s the turn of PlayStation VR. A 360-degree interactive diorama where players control an unnamed girl through detailed rooms with hidden secrets: “Thanks to its mechanics and polished execution Down the Rabbit Hole offers a delightful VR experience,” said VRFocus’ review.
- Supported platforms: PlayStation VR (EU Physical Copy)
- Launch date: 24th April
Lost Circus VR – The Prologue – Virtual Magic
Time for something a little scarier where you meet a creepy clown who wants to show you around his abandoned circus. Abandoned but not empty, as you jump into a barrel pushed by the clown you’ll spot spiders with glowing red eyes, old amusements and more. As an early access release, the studio plans on adding further interactivity and movement freedom in the future.
