Walk into a tavern, grab a drink and do battle against other players (or the AI) in this collectible card game! There’s deck building, leaderboard rankings, grinding for cards (if you care about getting on the leaderboards) and a private room where you can just hang out with other people.
Despite being free, the game has a good amount of depth and strategy involved, and tonnes of replay value!
Roguelite dungeon crawler with randomized dungeons offering infinite replayability! People have spent hundreds of hours in this game. It’s extremely polished and highly addictive – if you like action/fighting games, I highly recommend you give this one a try.
An app to connect with loved ones. Live in a home filled with endless adventures where you can add real life photos to the photo frames, watch videos together, listen to music together, play board games together or explore the world.
If you want to spend time with friends or family, this is an amazing app!!
Both a game and a film at the same time. It’s a story about schizophrenia and uses the VR medium extremely well to show what schizophrenia is like. Many schizophrenics say this is an accurate representation of what schizophrenia feels like.
A collection of short 3D VR comics (with a bit of animation and interaction involved). It’s a short experience and I found myself wishing for more content, but if you enjoy comics/manga, this app will be a game changer for you.
This one’s epic! It’s a 20 minute, standing theatrical VR experience that’ll blow your mind away. There are a few interactions and decisions you have to make in the story, which are pretty well woven into the story. Highly recommend this one!
You get to pet a cute baby dinosaur named Bogo and also feed him and play games with him. It’s fun for a little while, but there isn’t too much to do in this game – but since it’s free, it’s worth checking out.
Both a game and an educational documentary. It’s one of the most immersive free games out there and there are scary moments in the game. In terms of gameplay, it’s mainly just floating around in space, but still a very impressive experience for a free game.
One of the few games that utilizes hand tracking. It’s an awesome experience, but feels like a tech demo as there’s not much content. You can finish this game in 10 minutes. But still a cool showcase of what hand-tracking is capable of.
This app is intended for people who understand Japanese, but I thought it was such a cool experience that I’ll mention it here too.
Basically, you get to watch vtubers livestream on this platform, but instead of watching a 2D screen, you get to see them in VR (their avatar is 3D) and you get to interact with them. You can either watch livestreams or recordings of previous live streams.
The production value is amazing, so I hope they add an option for English soon!
Now let’s check out the games on Steam Store! There are many epic experiences not available on Quest.
If you own a Quest, you can use an Oculus Link cable or Air Link to play these games (you’ll also need a VR Ready PC though).
The Book of Distance
A short, but free cinematic experience developed by the National Film Board of Canada. Despite its length, it’s one of the best storytelling experiences I’ve got to play in VR. It’s a story about the immigration of the Okita family from Japan to Canada in the 1930s which touches on issues of racism, resilience, hard work and wanting a better life for your family.
It’s a touching experience which I recommend you try.
