    The Biggest Rift, Vive and Windows VR Releases For The Week 09/16/18

    There’s a hearty assortment of interesting new titles on offer for your PC VR headset this week. Even if you’re not privy to the intense thrills of Transference, there’s probably something for you here.

    Paperville Panic, from Ultimerse
    Price: $19.99 (Rift, Vive, Windows VR)

    Paperville Panic is a lovely little spot where everything is made out of wonderful colors. Unfortunately, it also has a tendency to, um, burn down. That’s where you come in; you’ll fight your way through a single-player campaign filled with evil arson, putting down fires and bringing those responsible to justice. We can’t speak to how good Paperville Panic is but its different subject matter does make it seem like an ironic breath of fresh air.

    Transference, from Spectrevision
    Price: $24.99 (Rift, Vive)

    The latest VR game published by Ubisoft is this incredibly intense psychological thriller that mixes live-action footage with full CG environments for an assault on the sense like no other. Explore a series of disturbing experiments that take you on a descent into madness in this gloomy game, which is only recommended for the bravest amongst us. We really like Transference, even if it is on the short side.

    Blind, from Tiny Bull Studios
    Price: $24.99 (Rift, Vive)

    Blind is a VR puzzle game in which you play as a woman that’s lost her sight. Held captive in a giant mansion, you explore your surroundings using echolocation, tapping surfaces with a white cane to create a temporary view of the world around you. It’s got a thoughtful presentation behind it, but the infuriating puzzles make the game far too much of a slog to see through.

    Distance, from Refract
    Price: $24.99 (Rift, Vive)

    A game that’s long been in Early Access finally hits its full release this week. Distance is a grabity-defying racer with full, optional VR support. Speed down circuits and then take to the skies in futuristic vehicles. Distance is a racer unlike anything else you’ve played in VR, and absolutely work a look for fans of the genre.

    The Biggest PSVR Releases For The Week 09/16/18

    Time to get your wallet out; there are a total of seven new experiences arriving on PSVR this week, and a good number of them are well worth checking out for yourself.

    The Chantry, from Steel Minions
    Price: £4.49 (EU Only)

    Another student project from Sheffield Hallam University, The Chantry transports players back to 200 years ago to explore the home of Edward Jenner, the controversial doctor that helped cure smallpox. Faithfully recreated with high-quality visuals, this is a chance to learn about one of the most important figures in medical science.

    Downward Spiral: Horus Station, from 3rd Eye Studios
    Price: $19.99

    One of our favorite PSVR games of the year is finally available on PSVR. Downward Spiral is a sci-fi adventure in which you explore the remains of an abandoned space station, trying to work out what happened to the crew. It uses brilliant zero gravity traversal and thrilling shootouts to really immersive you in its world. This is an atmospheric adventure you won’t want to miss.

    The Door, from Skonec Entertainment
    Prce: TBA

    The developers of Mortal Blitz return with a new escape room-style VR puzzler. The Door looks like a chilling experience in which you solve puzzles and avoid death by zombie chomping as you uncover the origins of a virus outbreak. We can’t tell you if this’ll be worth your time although, frankly, we wouldn’t hold our breath.

    Trickster VR: Dungeon Crawler, from Trickster Games
    Price: $14.99

    A pretty popular Early Access dungeon crawler heads from PC to PS4 this week. Trickster offers plenty of Orc-slaying using the usual assortment of swords, crossbows and more. Gather loot and fight your way through 35 different levels. While we like Trickster on PC, it’s important to point out the PSVR version doesn’t have four-player co-op (yet), and it might be best to wait until it does.

    Unearthing Mars 2, from Winking VR
    Price: $19.99

    A sequel no one was expecting, or particularly asking for, Unearthing Mars 2 shifts genre from adventure to shooter and takes you on an exploration of humanity’s lost past. Whilst it uses the PlayStation Aim controller and sports some impressive visuals, the repetitive, uninteresting gameplay and nonsensical plot make its two hour runtime a chore. We’d
