With all the big news coming out from E3, you might need a break to catch up with the week’s top five Oculus releases slipping in under the radar:
The winner of multiple awards – including Best VR game at least year’s E3 – Moss is an action adventure involving an adorable mouse in a fantasy world.
Released last year for PSVR and out this week for Oculus Rift, this is a must-play, especially for fans of the Redwall books or comic series like Mouse Guard and Mice Templar.
from E McNeil
E McNeil is quickly developing a reputation for well executed, futuristic strategy games for VR. Astraeus continues that trajectory with minimalist neon graphics and polished RTS mechanics of previous releases like Skylight and Darknet, this time in service of a game about using drone fleets to mine asteroids.
from Skullfish Studios
Don’t be fooled by the images of dungeons and dragons; Lila’s Tale isn’t an RPG, but rather a beautiful puzzle adventure for mobile VR featuring cleverly designed puzzles, a gorgeous cut-out art style, and a charming story appropriate for all ages.
Drops: Rhythm Garden
from Particle Inc.
VR is an ideal method of teaching non-musicians about musical concepts, as Drops: Rhythm Garden does with polyphonic rhythm. Use a series of shapes and sounds designed by DJ and remix artist Patrick Russell and avant-garde composer and guitarist Patrick Higgins to create intricate rhythms within a meditative semi-abstract landscape.
from VRtual Games
Previously released for Oculus Rift, the pastoral mini-games on offer from Funny Farm seem particularly well-suited to the more casual platform of mobile VR.
