Groundhog Day’s VR sequel, Like Father Like Son, is out today

Groundhog Day has a VR sequel. Let that sink in for a second. The Bill Murray comedy vehicle has been handed over to Tequila Works, and they've handed the curse of living the same day over and over to Phil Connors Jr - the junior to Murray's Phil Connors. He's back in Punxsutawney Pennsylvania, living his old man's nightmare, and just like pa, he's got…

Tetris Effect’s trippy tetrominoes tumble onto PC next week

The digital dreaming of Rez Infinite and music-matching of Lumines lock into the block-spinning puzzling of Tetris next week with the PC launch of Tetris Effect, a trippy take on tetrominoes from some of the folks behind those other two fines games. Tetris Effect debuted on PlayStation 4 in November and I'll be very glad to have a go myself, given some of the lovely…

Pet the VR cats of Kitten’d or they’ll destroy everything

I am not surprised to hear of a virtual reality game where you play with cats. Nor am I surprised to hear of a VR cat game where the furry devils will destroy things when your back's turned. I am both surprised and delighted to hear of a VR cat game where sometimes the cats are kaiju-sized and will destroy a city if you insufficiently…

Raise, train, and dress a bird in Falcon Age, landing on PC soon

If you too have been watching enviously as your PlayStation pals post clips of them playing with an adorable wee raptor, chin up: Falcon Age is now headed towards PC. I've mostly been enthralled by people petting the bird, dressing it in costumes, and teaching it tricks as it grows, so I've honestly been surprised to see more now and discover the aviculture simulator has,…

Beat Saber bops out of early access

Beat Saber's $100 Bills is an obnoxious song that I cannot remove from my brain. It's the musical equivalent of a bloke sidling up to you in a pub and asking if you want to see his armpits. Fortunately, Beat Saber has other songs, and makes slicing beats so satisfying that sometimes I don't even care that armpit man won't stop grunting about how wealthy…

Myst studio Cyan crowdfunding new adventure Firmament

Teased a year ago, Cyan Worlds are ready to unveil their next esoteric point-and-click puzzler, Firmament, and have turned to Kickstarter to raise the $1.28 million it'll take to get it finished. Weird steampunk technology, ghosts in machines and all the obscure pushing of buttons and pulling of levers you'd expect from the makers of Myst and Obduction, but this time with a focus on…

Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son will be a VR adventure game sequel to the movie

Ah, here we are doing the same thing over again – and yet, this one is different. Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son is breaking the loop of movie sequels sticking to the same media format and will instead be a virtual reality adventure game. You can see what’s old and what’s new, plus some cute little rodent friends, in the trailer.

Mosh Pit Simulator wobbles into early access for VR

Virtual reality, some might tell you, is the future of emotional interactive storytelling. Whether that's true or not, we should remember that VR has also great potential for fannying about like a big idiot. Lo, the clouds do part and Mosh Pit Simulator doth descend into early access. It's a goofed-out physics sandbox from Sos Sosowski, maker of the manic McPixel, and a game where…

Jack your feet in with Cybershoes

Imagine stepping into cyberspace in meatshoes. The horror. All the cybermen will point at those useless nonvirtual feet flapping all jigglephysicsed at the end of your legs and laugh. The cyberbouncer won't even let you jack in: no shirt, no cybershoes; no net service. Cyberpals, rest easy. You can now blast your bytecoins at Cybershoes, a new controller for VR games which strap onto your…

Flotilla 2 jacks in to blast off

Quadrilateral Cowboy and Thirty Flights Of Loving superstar Brendon Chung of Blendo Games has released Flotilla 2, a VR-only sequel to 2010's tidy turn-based tactical spaceship battler. Yes, you'll need Rift or Vive cybergoggles if you want to jaunt across space with a rag-tag group of spaceships. That leaves me out but, as someone who likes the first one, I do still hope goggheads juice…

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice added VR support today

"More than once during Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice I had to fight the urge to rip the headphones from my ears," Samuel Horti wrote in his Hellblade review, noting that "as a portrayal of how harrowing it is to live with psychosis it undoubtedly succeeds." Yeah yeah, but what if you could jam your eyeballs inside psychosis too? Now you may, as developers Ninja Theory today…

VR robo-stealth ’em up Budget Cuts sneaks out at last

Here's what marks Budget Cuts as a cut above other VR funtimes: it's been 20 minutes since I took my cybergoggles off and I still sort of feel like I'm in VR. That used to happen all the time when I first got my Vive, but my brain's since learned to tell the difference between the real and the virtual. Budget Cuts, though, feels so…

Bethesda’s new VR bits include Prey mimicking prop hunt

Not satisfied with bringing snow trolls and hellspawn to expensive cyber goggles, Bethesda are bringing two more of their games to VR – Prey and Wolfenstein. Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot and Prey: Typhon Hunter are set in their respective universes and, of the two, Typhon Hunter seems the most interesting. It’s a prop hunt-like bit of multiplayer hide and seek, in which five players are mimics pretending…

Ace VR stealth ’em up Budget Cuts budged back again

I had a little VR party on the day I got my Vive, and my guests all regarded the Budget Cuts demo as the highlight. That's partly because it felt slick and stylish in a way that hasn't been matched by anything I've tried since, but mostly because watching VR newbies fail to sneak past robots is the most fun you can have with a…

Clean a giant gross monster foot in Ashi Wash

When a supernatural giant stinky foot appears through the roof and demands you clean it, you had better listen. Deny the Ashiarai Yashiki's request and this Japanese spirit will trash your home, kicking and stomping. Buddy, you'd best get your marigolds on because Ashiarai Yashiki has come to visit in Ashi Wash. It's a small and silly game about tending to the tootsies, clipping its…

Psychonauts In The Rhombus Of Ruin jacks into PC

Sure, you've jacked into someone's mind to wander through their memories, but have you jacked into someone's mind while jacked into cyberspace? You can now do just that in Psychonauts In The Rhombus Of Ruin. Double Fine's VR spin-off from peachy physic platformer Psychonauts arrived on PC last night, supporting Rift and Vive cybergoggles, following its debut on PlayStation VR in February 2017. It's set…

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR has jacked into PC

It's time to hang a pine-scented Little Tree air freshener from your cybergoggs because The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR last night launched on PC, following its console debut in November 2017. It's Skyrim but in VR, yeah? Put your feet in a foot spa while you sit by a river in the rain, hang an old sock over your nose when venturing into Blackreach,…

Fus Vee Ah! Skyrim VR jacking into PC next month

Given that the iconic image of Skyrim is a fella wearing a Knightmare-esque bucket on his head, it's only fitting that Bethesda want you to strap cybergoggles onto your head to enter the fantasy RPG's world. Today they announced a PC release for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, a new standalone version built for cybergoggles. Skyrim VR debuted on PlayStation VR in November 2017,…

Myst studio Cyan enter the Virtual Age with Firmament

Cyan Worlds have never been one to leave a new frontier unexplored. As naff as Myst may seem by modern adventure standards, it went a long way to put the CD-ROM medium on the map for PC and Mac gaming. Uru Live may have fallen through, but it was ahead of its time when it came to delivering community-driven MMO concepts. Now, they're taking a direct…
