Wanderer is an upcoming VR adventure game inspired by Quantum Leap (1989) and Dark (2017) that lets you travel back through history to prevent the collapse of civilization. The game’s developers, Oddboy and M Theory, today released a new trailer revealing some of the game’s time-traveling gameplay.
Update (June 3rd, 2021): The developers of Wanderer released a new gameplay trailer today giving a much clearer glimpse of the game’s time-hopping fun.
From the looks of it, the game will be puzzle-centric, and structured around different mini-games of sorts, derived from the various eras that the player will visit. The game is due to launch this year on PSVR, PC VR, and Oculus Quest via Link later this year.

Original Article (April 16th, 2021): Awaking to an apocalyptic timeline, you find an unusual wristwatch which unlocks the power to traverse time and space. It seems you’ll be ‘quantum leaping’ through all sorts of major events, striving to right what once went wrong (and hoping each time that your next leap will be the leap home).
“Experiment alongside frenzied inventors, play to an endless crowd of hippies, defend ancient civilizations from invasion, decode covert messages in the midst of war and uncover the secrets of the space race – will you follow what you know to be true or are there forces at play beyond your control?” the studios say.
Its creators say it blends escape room-style puzzles and hands-on action sequences “that will see you bring together objects and events from various time periods in sometimes unlikely and inventive ways.”
Wanderer is slated to launch on PSVR, SteamVR and Oculus PC headsets in Q3 2021. All versions of the game will support full motion controls, including PSVR.
