IT: Escape From Pennywise VR – $0.99
Have you recently watched “IT,” The Stephen King novel based movie? Well, if you have you’ll find a lot of similar thrills in this new VR experience on Samsung Gear VR. IT: Escape From Pennywise VR is the next chapter of the IT virtual reality experience with IT: Escape from Pennywise.

After some delays, Oculus has announced the official release of Blade Runner 2049 Memory Lab on the Samsung Gear VR. The experience follows the storyline from the recent movie featuring Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling in a futuristic dystopian society overrun by bio-engineered human beings.
In the VR game, you’ll play as a Blade Runner who, after the violent ending in Blade Runner 2049: Replicant Pursuit, reports to the Wallace Corporation’s Memory Lab at the Wallace Corporation for incident analysis. With the help of a holographic AI similar to the character of Joi in the movie, you’ll explore your memories of the event, reconstructing and interacting with them as you uncover a mysterious conspiracy.
Melita takes place in a dystopian like world where Melita, an advanced AI, and Anaaya, a brilliant female scientist are tasked to find a new planet that humans can inhabit. The two characters are surrounded by snow, ice, and anything else that reminds you of the antarctic. They also have a futuristic spaceship that’s able to travel intergalactic to other planets. It’s hung in the air by some futuristic contraptions which was really interesting to see in VR.
While researching and exploring the desolate planet, the two female characters also take on a personal journey to figure out the meaning of life.
