We warned you Netflix’s Stranger Things Day event wouldn’t produce any significant announcements this year, and we were right. The biggest revelation that came out of it was the reveal of the title for Season 5, Episode 1: “The Crawl.” The Duffers reveal these titles early because they know it doesn’t help you much. When the title for Season 4, Episode 1 (“The Hellfire Club”) was revealed, everybody thought “hey, that’s the name of a league of villains in X-Men! It must be related to that!” It was definitely not. Your theories this time will also be wrong.
A JRPG in virtual space? Does that work? Someone decided to find out: publisher Mastiff and developer CharacterBank have just launched RUINSMAGUS, a first-person, fully immersive VR JRPG for modern devices.
JRPGs can be found in a lot of places, but they don’t get much exposure in the world of VR. One might argue it’s difficult to translate the genre over, but someone’s done it: publisher Mastiff and developer CharacterBank are introducing RUINSMAGUS, a first-person, fully immersive VR JRPG.
These days they put roguelite elements in everything, so why not VR bullet shooters? Yuki is the name of an upcoming shooter from VR studio ARVORE (Pixel Ripped). In the tradition of Star Fox, you must fly the self-named hero through dozens of self-propelling 3D environments, dodging an endless amount of projectiles while carefully aiming to destroy targets. However, the placement of these things will be random each time, and you can acquire power-ups, abilities and weapons though gameplay or leveling up.

RevolVR3 is a popular virtual reality shooter, and until recently, the only place you could play it was Dave & Busters. But it’s breaking out of the arcades and coming to your home VR device through Steam.
The Dreamcast is indisputably one of the greatest consoles of all time. It only lived for three years yet packed more innovation into its brief lifespan than some game-playing machines produce in twice that time. Sega was at their creative height during the Dreamcast years, producing lovingly quirky titles like 1999’s Space Channel 5.
Virtual reality can take you a lot of places. The potential is endless. For example, you can put on a pair of goggles and escape to….a confined one-room radio station in the middle of nowhere. If the limiting choice of locale for the upcoming VR game Area Man Lives sounds odd, wait’ll you hear this: the game expects you to speak to it.
Not everyone owns a pair of those fancy VR goggles the big companies were pushing a couple years ago, but Throw Anything is the game idea that will make you wish you had one. In this fast-paced action title from developer VisualLight, zombies are advancing on your high-rise building, getting closer and closer to your apartment — and the only way to fend them off is to throw things. If you can see it, you can throw it — including people!
MiroWin Stuio has been working on their new first-person VR shooter Boiling Steel for nearly two years, and they’re ready to put the game through its paces. A beta version of the game is now accessible on Steam Early Access.
We learned a bit more about Half-Life: Alyx today, For one thing, it’s confirmed to not be Half-Life 3, not that anyone expected it to be. It takes place between the first and second Half-Life games.
There’s survival horror, and then there’s just….horror. The goal in Nox Mortis, the new VR app from Sigil Entertainment, isn’t to survive. It’s just to get scared.
