Free Interactive Experiences

Anne Frank House VR

This interactive experience takes you into the secret annex where Anne Frank lived for two years in hiding from the Nazi regime. The experience lets you explore the entire annex where eight people hid, and experience what it must have been like for Frank up until the group was discovered and shipped off to concentration camps in August 1944.

Mission: ISS

Get your space boots and Tang ready, because you’re about to take a trip into orbit to learn about life board the International Space Station. You’ll float around in the station’s microgravity environment and experience how to dock a space capsule, take a spacewalk, and let real NASA astronauts guide you on the ISS through informative videos and images. Look out over the pale blue dot and marvel at humankind’s most awesome achievements.

Home After War

Home After War is  a room-scale, interactive experience that takes you to Fallujah, a city that was, until recently, under Islamic State (IS) control. Even though the conflict has ended, there’s a looming fear of returning refugees: booby trapped homes and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in the neighborhoods. Awe-inspiring. Human. Disturbing.

Free Quest Apps


Ever wanted to use Google Earth in VR? The free tier of Wooorld (that’s three ‘o’s) lets you do just that, as you explore our little blue marble in company of others. There’s a (mostly) 3D map and Google Street View, all of which you use as great focal points as you chat with people around the world. There’s a premium tier that unlocks games similar to Geoguessr.

Bigscreen Beta

Bigscreen is the mother of all VR video apps, and it’s social too. Configure your avatar and pop into virtual movie theaters to watch your own content, stream your own stuff for others to see, and watch other people’s content all while having a friendly chat. You can also rent movies, show up for bespoke movie nights, and watch all the free live TV you can shake a stick at, courtesy of a partnership with Pluto TV.

Flipside Studio

Flipside Studio is a virtual production studio that lets you use VR to make real-time animated shows for Twitch, YouTube, TikTok, and more. You can pick from sets, avatars, and props, and collaborate in real-time so you can finally get that VR podcast off the ground, or make the next viral video about a hotdog man belittling some sort of lizard boy for whatever reason. Anyway, it’s up to you to make hilarity ensue!

Gravity Sketch

Design models, ideate products, create anything in VR with Gravity Sketch. It has the ability to import images, video, and 3D files (.jpg, .png, .mp4, .obj) and output snapshots and 3D objects (.png, .obj, .iges). Even when it was a paid app, it was a powerful and surprisingly intuitive creation suite. Now that it’s exactly $0 with no hidden gotchas, it’s even better.

      Earn nearly $46000 weekly. I left my job after doing work for the same employer for a long period. While I was being employed by my previous company I was searching for real work-at-home opportunities where I could make big money and also simultaneously get enough time to put in with my family and offcourse I was not seeking for internet scams that misguide you to make you very very rich in just few days or more. Ultimately I found a great opportunity and I can’t tell you how glad I am these days. The great things about doing work from internet are: Your Workplace Can Be Anywhere- you’re not tied to your house. That doesn’t mean your only other location will be the coffee shop around the corner. You can take care of your job on a trip, having fun in the fantastic outdoors , or maybe listening to your favorite band at a live concert. Here’s how to start->->->->

  • SideQuest should the #1 thing on the list. (followed by QuestORama!)

  • Nothing to see here

    I miss the amazing demos that you could download for free with the original Oculus developer kit. I wish they would make a compatibility layer and let us download them again as some were among the best things I have seen in VR.

      You probably can still play them, I play Robo Recall on both my Quest 2 and my Reverb G2.

      I agree. Nothing seems as exciting as those. An endless, tedious procession of shooters and rhythm games.

      Where are the Edge of Nowhere style adventures? Why not do a Pandemonium (PS1) style platformer? All these developers do is make endless copies of somebody else’s successful idea.

  • Great article, thank you. I will recommend your readers to read about Instant Apps Development

  • You should have included “The Unity Cube”… it’s an experience that is so artistic and immersive… and it is free!

    BTW, Spatial now has pivoted towards being a platform to host NFTs exhibitions, you should write that

  • Ace of Spadеs

    I dont see a single game that even remotely AA, all trash that looks like it was made bny high-school kids.

    VR went downhill in 2021, only one couple AA and zero AAA games

    • Andrew Jakobs

      Funny, it’s actually the simple look of a lot of games that attracted me. I like low poly games. And I’m fully aware the current Quests aren’t capable of delivering AAA type of graphics yet. And even mainstream PC’s aren’t ready yet to drive those latest PCVR headsets without the latest highend cards which are even hard to come by, even the 3060’s are insanely expensive.

      • Ace of Spadеs

        Thats not my point, also games can be scaled, like 2D games to have graphical settings [Most VR for some reason have ZERO graphical or resolution settings]

        If you want VR to survive it has to move pass the “cheap Chinese mobile phone for cheap F2P games” kind of device.
        It has to be PS5, xbox Series X kind of device.

        That attracts Big name studios that make big name games.

        But VR is going DOWNHILL, when Rift S came out, many studios jumped on the bandwagon, Bethesda ported 2 games and made 2 VR centric ones, DOOM VR and Cyber Pilot.
        Ubisoft dipped their toes in VR and made that horror/mind game, forgot its name, also they made that rather popular Star Trek game
        Bunch of AAA games got ported, Borderlands 2 and maybe some others
        Then Alyx came out and everybody was happy, thinking THIS IS THE VR MOMENT, THIS IS WHEN big publishers jump to VR and they DIDN’T.
        The state of VR is SAD, its exactly like I said: You buy VR to play Indie games, like a poor kid buy 90$ Chinese mobile phone to play F2P games, BUT VR is far from 90$, its 400-500 for Quest 2 [With cable, new facial interface, bobovr strap and controllers straps]
        1000$ for Valve Index, 1200$ for HTC Pro 2 and 3000$ for that Varjo whatever its called.

        Facebook trying to release more games but they all right in the Indie AA area and the sad part is that Best Selling VR game is Port of Playstation 2 era Resident Evil 4!

        • Rezerlius Carnelius Mazretin

          Dude why do you have to be so damn extremely biased? I know you’re not much satisfied with the Oculus quest games but I am having the best time of my life on the Oculus quest 2 Which I just got for Christmas VR didn’t go downhill That is where you are 100% wrong It’s improving every year Of course there will be some VR games that are not AAA games but they are pretty damn amazing there are plenty of best-selling quest games I recently bought like fruit Ninja VR Resident Evil 4 VR beatsaber super hot VR Pavlov VR echo VR VRchat If you look into the best selling quest games category there is a lot of quest games worth buying If you really are looking for AAA VR games you’re better off with PC VR or PlayStation VR those are the only two platforms they have a pretty large library of AAA VR games Even I have tons of fun with PSVR games other than that there are some things the quest 2 does better than PSVR when it comes to room scale customization and the Oculus touch controllers has two thumbsticks That makes PS move motion controllers look inferior But other than that I like both the quest 2 and PS VR for different purposes Like for example I’m mostly purchased dictionary games that doesn’t require a thumbstick unlike the quest 2 I mostly purchase games that require a thumb stick for the better experience And that’s pretty much it So don’t worry VR gaming is evolving and 2022 will be the year when VR really shines.

          • Im always Late

            im a bit late but damn i agree

          • Totius

            I think that you have entered into this world much more recently than him. You mention Super Hot which is a great game, but it was a launching title of Oculus Rift CV1 (and probably was already playable with the dev kit). All the best games had still to come back to 2016/17.. Nobody is anymore spending money for AAA titles, the last we have seen was Alyx. Now the best thing, in my opinion, you can do with the quest 3 is playing Cyberpunk or Red Dead Redemption, but because of obvious reasons you have to spend a LOT of money and have to spend a lot of time to tweak the settings to make it work.

          • ApocalypseShadow

            The year 2022 came and went…. lol..

            It didn’t get better. We’re still struggling to get good content beyond indie games.

        • Michelle Jones

          i have rez 4i likeit! wish there was somemulti init though..

        • Totius

          Oh man, I agree so much with you. It is such a pity what is happening.. I do not understand what is going wrong. But maybe yes.. it is still too much expensive for most people. PC VR is just too expansive to be self sustainable. It is the only explanation I have. I am absolutely sure that the “old times” of Lone Echo, Wilson’s Heart, LA noire, Fallout 4 will come back, we have just to be patient, and have to spend money for playing flat to VR games. Quest 3 in the meantime has some cool things that we will enjoy like VR chat or some nice things to show to family like this cool Lego AR game!

  • mark

    amazing Gaming videos! enjoyed a lot!. to grab knowledge about app development do visit polestar!

  • Beginner

    I’ve ordered this system for my wife and am wondering if there are simple VR experiences (like riding a roller coaster, or flying over/around a national park), as opposed to games, shoot-’em-ups, haunted houses/monsters and sports. I probably haven’t looked through Oculus’ full catalogue, but haven’t seen much of what we’d be looking for. Thanks in advance.

    • Heather

      Yes, there are a lot of VR experiences you can have besides just playing games.

      • Beginner

        Thanks Heather – I appreciate your responding. Can you recommend some titles?

        • Heather

          Rec Room,Altspace,BigScreen and Blades and Sorcery

    • ParaLaUAZ!

      My wife resisted our son’s request for an Oculus. She was eventually won over, but didn’t really see the value in it (not a techie) until I sat her down, pulled up YouTubeVR and sent her down the canals of Venice, one of her favourite cities to visit. She had literal tears in her eyes. So do look beyond Oculus’ own store for good VR experience.

    • Funnily, those two examples you picked are some of the worst things you could put her into, especially if you don’t want her being sick. Lol

      But, there’s loads of stuff outside of that:

      I mentioned Tales From Soda Island, which are short animations found in the VR Animation player app. Those are all really good.

      There’s All the Felix and Paul stuff, which is all 360 movies (from being aboard the ISS to watching a scene from a Jurassic World movie standing inside it), and are generally some of the best of that type in VR.

      Simple stuff but really effective for the casuals imo.

    • CrusaderCaracal

      If your wife has never played VR before I strongly recommend you don’t start off with a rollercoaster experience. Ease your way into it

  • Yu


  • your mamma

    it was a poppy ranking and my game the best agme in the world wasent in here your mammas al suck

  • All the Tales From Soda Island stuff in the VR Animation player is well worth watching.

  • Person #126438

    Sh#t list. games arnt fun or they arnt games at all. if you want fun free games just go to applabdb or download sidequest

    • JAZE

      srue but battle talent is fun the rest is terrible

  • jaze

    Im not sure about this I think this should have sidequst game. Although it has battle talent a very fun and gory game.

  • JAZE

    this is such a bad list

    • Tanix Tx3

      It’s the same list copied and reposted over the years, every time someone mention ‘free quest games’.
      They might just copy this from older articles again and again without any update check.

      • ViRGiN

        they did just that

    • Joe

      So tell us a better list instead of just being a dick? Like, I’d genuinely love to know a good list.

      • Tommy

        Most free VR games suck. I mean, there are tons of free games on PCVR but I’ve only played a handful of good ones like:
        Payday 2
        War Thunder
        The Lab (not really a game)
        Shattered Lights

    • Arno van Wingerde

      Well put all your suggestions in the comments and maybe we end up with a better list.

  • Tanix Tx3

    Why pavlov? I tried and the quest version sucks. Especially the bots are really dumb.
    Better give AimXR a try.

  • Elic

    Gorilla tag is the best VR game I hate that you didn’t include it fuck you but yeah!

    • deven b

      they did

  • Elic

    I personally think that Tanix is wrong Pavlov shack is a pretty good game

  • Elic

    I agree with JAZE this is not a good list.

  • philingreat

    Mash Me Up, free multiplayer party games!

  • Corn Bread

    Hyper Dash was recently made FREE and should be a top pick for f2p games.

  • Mam Mem

    Not forgetting “First Steps”, preinstalled on each Quest 2, its very nice. The shooter in it is one of the funniest VR experiences ever. I’ve looked for a similar full game but have found nothing. That is a gap in the marked.

  • guest

    i dont think Gorillatag is free anymore

    • Tatertot

      It is and always will be

    • Free on Quest, PC have to pay

  • Where is “The Unity Cube”?

  • TTTpig

    Gorilla tag is honestly the best game on the quest store not only is it a great experience it also has amazing content creators such as jman curly vmt Apollo and Elliot and me!

    • CrusaderCaracal

      It’s a decent game but it is certainly not the best game on the quest store

  • ViRGiN

    Recycling articles is boring.

    • Arno van Wingerde

      See ist as a regular update, it would be nice if they could highlight new suggestions, so we do not have to read the same ‘news’ over and over again.

  • impurekind

    Skybox VR should be right up there for watching movies. I think it’s better than all the other options personally.

    • That’s not free

      • impurekind

        I honestly thought it was. My memory must be bad on this one.

  • CrusaderCaracal

    Got confused as to why all of the comments on a seemingly new article were from a few months ago until I found my own. I understand it takes time to write an article, but changing out the 2 for a 3 in the title isn’t writing an article. Not good enough.

    • ViRGiN

      they did it again

  • Too bad there is no mention of the games that run in the browser on the Quest. There are some great games right on the new tab page, for free.

  • Is there a reason you never include Open Brush? Not as if it’s not a continuation of a multi award winning classic app or anything… That and the whole “community run, open source” thing… Hurumph…

  • Lance Powell

    Reposting the same list, huh?

    Please add ‘Remio’ to the social apps next time, so we know you’re trying new stuff.
