Virtual Virtual Reality is one of mobile VR’s best games to date, and you can now play an enhanced version on the Oculus Rift.
Created by studio Tender Claws and initially launched back in 2017, Virtual Virtual Reality goes far beyond the expectations set by most mobile VR titles by delivering strong visuals, great sound, intuitive interaction, locomotion and a proper narrative, culminating in a strong feeling of immersion.
Having played through the entirety of the game on a mobile VR headset, it’s no wonder to me why the time and effort has been put in to bring it to the Oculus Rift. As of today, Virtual Virtual Reality is available on the Rift priced at $20 (also available on Oculus Go, Gear VR, and Daydream for $10). The game is rated nearly five stars on each of its available platforms.
Virtual Virtual Reality tells the story of a far future where a company called Activitude offers up human labor to artificial intelligence personalities for the novelty of human imperfection. Sort of like an ‘Uber for human labor’. Virtual reality headsets, which act as the access points for performing your human service tasks, are littered throughout the game’s world, and players can put them on and take them off at will, going deeper and deeper into virtual reality as they explore the depths of Activitude. It’s an exploratory adventure—with a dash of puzzle solving and meta-humor—and one that’s worth taking without having too much spoiled for you.
What’s more, VVR developer Tender Claws teased on the Oculus Blog announcement of the game’s Rift launch, that the studio is “collaborating with Oculus on a new experience coming next year!” which certainly has our interest piqued.
