A healthy week of intriguing releases awaits you today. We’ve got the long-awaited VR port of a great superhero game, the latest from the developer of Raw Data and a frankly out of this world surrealist experience.
The excellent Superman simulator finally makes its way to PC VR. In Megaton Rainfall you must defend a procedurally generated planet from an alien invasion. Rather than having your own health bar, though, you must prevent as much damage to the cities as possible by killing enemies quickly with carefully-aimed shots. It’s a little dizzying but absolutely exhilarating.
Sprint Vector developer Survios returns with an entirely different type of experience. Electronauts is a VR music mixer that uses smart interactions to produce a strikingly natural experience. The music might not be suited to your tastes but it’s hard not to feel the groove as you start playing around with this audible feast.
Museum of Symmetry, from Casa Rare
Price: Free (Vive)
This has to be one of the most unique VR experiences we’ve seen in a while. Journey through the mind of cartoonish Paloma Dawkins in this surreal tour of some incredible animations. It’s the kind of thing you should definitely check out when you have a spare 10 minutes of VR time.
Futurejam, from 2049VR
Price: $9.99 (Rift, Vive, Windows VR)
This is basically Beat Saber meets Guitar Hero, except you’ve got drum sticks instead of lightsabers. There’s really no other way to describe it. If you like music-based rhythm games and you like VR, then you’ll probably enjoy this one. It’s an Early Access launch right now with licensed tracks from “real-life house and trance artists” that will be expanded more over time.
