Windlands (2016) is a first-person exploration game from Psytech Games, and as one of the first truly great titles to come to all major VR headsets, the temporary $5 price tag on Steam—down from its normal $20—is an absolute steal for what it offers.
After generating over $20k in a successful Indiegogo campaign in fall of 2014 and subsequently being Greenlit on Steam, Windlands is out of early access and available on every major headset including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, OSVR and PSVR.
The Steam version however is only compatible with HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and OSVR, and can be played with motion controllers or gamepad. The Oculus Store version, which only offers support for Rift, is still advertising the full $20 price tag.
You can’t help but marvel at the grandiosity of the environment Windlands creates. Offering a calming, zen-like atmosphere with increasingly difficult terrain, you’ll easily lose a few hours to trying to figure out just how to get that last Easter egg before you move on to the next level.
The main means of locomotion: your trusty grappling hook that lets you soar through the ruins of a fallen civilization and discover the secrets of the ancient world. The game also works on traditional monitors (but we’re not sure why you’d ever want to).
