Pixel Ripped 1989 is finally released today after several years of development. In this quirky VR game you take on the role of a young grade school girl as she plays her Gameboy-inspired handheld console in class, at school, around the house, and in other areas. The game world starts to escape the small screen and merge with her real world (or the VR world) and it’s up to you to battle back the forces of evil.
It’s a really clever and creative game concept that’s got multiple layers. We went hands on with it at GDC earlier this year and came away smiling from the concept and execution, but you’ll have to wait for our full review later this week to see how the full game stacks up.
In the meantime, we’ll be livestreaming Pixel Ripped 1989 on PC today using an Oculus Rift with Touch controllers starting very soon as of the time this is being published (which means we’ll start at approximately 2:30 PM PT) and aim to last for about an hour or so. We’ll be livestreaming directly to the UploadVR Facebook page. You can see the full stream embedded right here down below once it’s up:
You can see our archived streams all in this one handy Livestream playlist over on the official UploadVR YouTube channel (which you should totally subscribe to by the way). All future and current streams will be on Facebook, which you can see a list of here.
Let us know which games you want us to livestream next and what you want to see us do, specifically, in Pixel Ripped 1989 or other VR games. Comment with feedback down below!
