Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice VR Edition, from Ninja Theory
Price: $29.99 (Rift, Vive)

The VR port of one of last year’s best games, announced as a surprise release last week, is now available. In this engrossing exploration of mental health, you follow Senua on her journey to save her lover from death. Hellblade is dark and uncompromising but also an incredible display of high-end VR gaming that shouldn’t be missed.

Anamorphine, from Artifact 5
Price: $19.99 (Rift, Vive)

Another game focusing on mental health, Anamorphine follows a couple’s battle with depression after a tragic accident leaves one of them unable to play their beloved instrument. The game’s completely narrative-driven and has some interesting ideas, but poor VR optimization and some misjudged story-beats leave it feeling cold.

Moon Strike, from Big Dork Entertainment
Price: $19.99 (Rift, Vive)

A new take on the real-time strategy genre for VR. Moon Strike sees you commanding space-based battles with motion controllers and a fleet of ships at your finger-tips. Seize control of planets and blow up the enemy in fast-fire battles.
