Inception says there are four layers. Why do I feel like Tender Claws is prepping a ‘Hold my beer’ moment?
Another Virtual Reality game is coming from PC to PSVR this week. This is a move I am enjoying keeping an eye on, as PSVR is tending to get the better ports of a lot of games. This makes sense as PlayStation VR players outnumber Rift and Vive users by quite a margin!
The game if I can even call it that is called Virtual Virtual Reality. In a lot of ways, it might be better described as one of the VR ‘experiences’, but it’s one that has always had my interest.
Before I even try to get into the why I am intrigued, check out the PSVR launch trailer:
In a bizarre Job Simulator type way, you enter the world of an Activitude employee, using VR to make their clients lives better. Or at least more enjoyable.
In the game, you don different VR goggles to enter different worlds as requested by Activitudes clients. Your task: help the AI master ‘Chaz’ deliver on the companies promises. Sounds simple, right?
Except there is a bit of a mystery to unravel. As you enter different worlds, you start to piece together the history of Activitude and the world you are in.
From all accounts, you can finish Virtual Virtual Reality in a couple of hours. It was one of the early Virtual Reality gems after all. The story apparently has a great message on the Virtual World with slices of humor and warnings, but the pacing seems to have been the biggest downfall originally.
With all this in mind, I am hoping for a sub-$15 price on the PlayStation Store this week, but we will see. If you have a Rift or a Vive, you can nab it on Steam for AUD$20 – and the Steam Summer Sale is surely only a few weeks away! I am sure to play this in one form or another in the next little while 🙂
Until next time,
