Oculus Touch exclusive
My human body is gone, but I don’t even care. Instead of flesh, bone and sinew, my hands are made of titanium — I can even see the mechanical tendons flex when I bend a finger. They’ve got built-in thrusters and plasma cutters, too, which is handy because I’m in zero-G, trying to repair a space station.
This is Lone Echo, and it’s already my favorite VR game, bar none. It perfectly embraces VR’s strengths and limitations with its zero-G movement, where you have to literally grab onto parts of the station to pull yourself forward. Reaching out to interact with objects is eerie, but natural, and production values are top-notch. It’s a VR world that feels convincing because it feels lived in.
And that’s without mentioning the multiplayer mode, Echo Arena — it’s like the Battle Room from Ender’s Game, only with a disc instead of guns.
