The Big Releases
Mindshow, from Mindshow
Out now in Early Access, Mindshow is one of the Vive’s most innovative and immediately entertaining apps. You’re given the tools to make fun short films by embodying characters, acting out, and then watching your actions in playback. This is a great tool for making compelling VR content.
Recommendation: This is unmissable. Grab it.
Prison Boss, from Trebuchet
Price: $19.99 (currently discounted)
This is a fun-looking trading and crafting game in which you grow a reputation inside prison by making items at night and taking jobs during the day. It’s a really cool idea and unlike anything else we’ve seen in VR.
Recommendation: Check this one out.
Cat Sorter VR, from Pawmigo Games
Price: $12.99 (Currently discounted)
Who wouldn’t want a job sorting cats? In this bizarre little game you have to separate defective cats from normal ones, and then rebuild some to become the perfect companions.
Recommendation: One for cat lovers for sure.
Blasters of the Universe, from SecretLocation
Price: $14.99 (Rift)
Long in development under Early Access, Blasters of the Universe is now a full game with a campaign in which you strive for high scores as you dodge enemy attacks in VR’s very own take on the bullet hell genre.
Recommendation: A great price for a solid game. Grab it.
Headmaster, from Frame Interactive Studio
Price: $19.99 (Rift)
One of PSVR’s best launch titles finally comes to PC VR headsets this week. At its heart Headmaster seems like a simple mini-game in which you hit balls with your head to hit targets. In reality, there’s an expansive and hilarious game here you should really check out.
Recommendation: Absolutely pick this one up, especially if you want a bit of a neck workout.
Preta: Vendetta Rising
