New Gear VR Releases Include Claustrophobic Room Puzzler ‘Neverout’

by Julianna Crisalli • January 28th, 2016

The 10 newest releases in the Oculus store for Gear VR include a wide-range of topics and genres.

Neverout, which looks inspired by the movie Cube, puts players inside a challenging series of puzzles. Another, I Am You, puts you inside another person’s body. We’ll take a deeper look at some of these apps soon, but here is a quick glance at the new releases. Also, don’t miss these deals: Anshar Wars 2 and Audio Arena are now 50 percent off until Feb. 3. There’s a new demo of Audio Arena available this week so you don’t have to buy before you try.
