Developer: Fantahorn Studio
Front Defense is an arcade-style VR shooter that puts you on the front lines, defending a European town from Axis forces. You’ll need to duck and cover, then fight back with a selection of increasingly powerful weaponry until you face down the ultimate super weapon. Man the guns and get ready to hold the line!
A music creation platform that takes full advantage of room-scale VR, LyraVR isn’t about recreating guitars or trumpets. Instead it lets you create music by placing sounds in a virtual environment, then linking them together to form loops or lining them up to create songs. If you want to get hands-on you can play virtual drums, keyboards and more, then either perform in real-time for friends or share them for others. It’s a fresh way to look at, experience and create music, unique to VR.
We’ve seen a number of ‘escape room’ VR experiences, but this one’s different – you’ll be building your own AI companion – Bot – who’ll work alongside you. Bot’s moods change and adapt depending on your interaction, so each player’s experience will be different.
On the ‘lighter’ side of war, Panzer Panic is a local multiplayer (and single player vs AI) tank game, where you’ll need to capture the enemy’s flag while defending your own. With plenty of power-ups, fun tank customization options and fast gameplay, it’s perfect for your next VR LAN party.
Developer: Phaser Lock Interactive
This over-the-top shooter kicks the average archery game up a notch or five. You’ll move around a huge city, teleporting up and down buildings to try and make the perfect shot with your top secret combat bow. This isn’t a serious military sim though: you’re packing some extra-special arrows ready to rain pain, as well as hi-tech shields to keep you alive through the six massive levels.
On the complete other end of the ‘what you can do with a bow and arrow’ spectrum, #Archery (yup – ‘hashtag archery’!) asks you to imagine if you woke up one day and had to do everything with a bow and arrow. Like, everything. You won’t be standing on a target range for this: you’ll be selling ice cream, making vegetarian pizza, delivering newspapers, chopping wood, catching fish and, as they say, much more. You’ll never look at a bow and arrow the same way again.
The hashtag sports craze doesn’t end with #Archery – we also have #SelfieTennis available for those of you who like the idea of a calm, relaxed game where you use your tennis racket to murder people. Wait, what?
Yes, #SelfieTennis isn’t exactly up to tennis tournament standards, but that just makes it all the better. Don’t worry, we’re not talking about a Tennis Murder Simulator here – you’re ‘killing’ #BallPeople, who are basically tennis balls with feet. I mean, they deserve it, right?
Developer: Treefortress Games
There’s something about a retro-future-world dominated by neon-like lasers that makes just about anything look cool. HoloBall puts you right in the middle of those beautiful pixels with only a paddle, tasking you with defeating a rogue AI. Your skills will be tested as you hit, smash and curve your virtual ball on the path to freedom.
