New VR Games To Play This Weekend On Oculus Rift – October 6, 2017 Weekend Edition
There are some awesome new VR games to choose from this week for the Oculus Rift. For example, Survios has finally released the full version of Raw Data on the Rift. In addition, there are other indie VR games that might be worth a gander.
Below is a list of new VR games available on the Oculus Rift:
TriHelix has released an early access version to their game called Marshmallow Melee which takes you inside a toy-sized world where you must battle minions using your Marshmallow warriors. These specialized fluffy characters can be controlled by pointing a laser at a certain area on the map through your motion tracked controllers. TriHelix describes this quirky method as a “cat + laser pointer.”
The 3 man team came to develop this new VR game with a variation of games in mind. They believe that Marshmallow Melee is Pikmin meets Diablo meets the He-Man Castle Grayskull playset from the 80s. Essentially, it’s a mesh of some really cool games.
Raw Data is a compelling VR game that allows you to explore a fantasy world where you play as a member of the Syndik8 and fight off the evil enemeies of Eden Corp. The game will allow you to play solo or team up with friends through their cross-platform online co-op missions and become a hero. There is a PvP mode which allows you to combat other players as well. Make sure to give this a go during the weekend.
