While PSVR players are jumping into Firewall Zero Hour, it’s actually not a bad week for new releases on PC, either. We’ve got some really intriguing pieces to check out on Rift and Vive, two of which are free.
Hurrah for free!
An intriguing puzzle game with first-rate production values, Torn is a great VR debut from Aspyr. You explore the deserted mansion that once belonged to an inventor, uncovering his life’s work and just maybe discovering where he disappeared to. Engaging, if simplistic puzzles set a great pace and the writing is top notch, though the story suffers in the second half.
GIPHY World has to be one of the strangest VR apps we’ve seen so far. It’s a creation-based experience in which you bury one of three virtual environments in GIPHY’s huge library of looping videos. If you love to mess around inside VR and do really random stuff then this one is absolutely for you, though we’d love to see multiplayer support added.
PROZE: Prologue, from SignSine
Price: Free (Rift, Vive)
A free prequel to an upcoming VR adventure, Proze grabbed our attention with its gorgeous graphics and story-driven content. This taster offers completely original content ahead of the release of a first full episode later this fall. We haven’t played it yet but we’re really looking forward to seeing what becomes of this one.
