The Big Releases
Hangry Bunnies From Mars, from Studio 229
Here’s a new wave shooter that looks like it’s had a lot of time and effort poured into it. Hangry Bunnies has you blasting away vicious critters both big and small with crazy weaponry. It’s got an arcade influence that will have you chasing for high scores and playing again and again.
Recommendation: Shooter fans should snap this up.
Altar Show, from Altar Virtual Technologies
This is a pretty fascinating concept. Altar Show is a VR productivity app that tries to use the infinite possibilities of the tech to help you better remember things. You can create mind maps that expand all around you, make notes and more. It’s an Early Access release with plenty of promise.
Recommendation: Another interesting example of VR at work. Check it out.
Chroma Lab, from Sean Tann
Price: $4.99 (Rift, currently discounted)
This gorgeous VR particle physics sandbox looks absolutely incredible. Play with color like never before as you interact with thousands of tiny particles that you can bend and build to your choosing and then smash into glorious works of art. There might not be much game to it, as such, but we could see ourselves losing hours in it.
Recommendation: Definitely pick this one up.
Cosmic Awakening, from 3D Generation
Price: $24.99 (Rift, currently discounted)
Don’t worry horror fans, we haven’t forgotten you. Cosmic Awakening gives you this week’s dose of VR scares with a creepy adventure set on board a space ship. Search for your missing crew and uncover the mysteries of what happened as you fight for your life in this scary story.
Recommendation: For those that love to be chilled.
