Arca’s Path VR is the perfect game for people who enjoy maze type games and just want to chill at home after a long day at work. This awesome single player game is produced by Rebellion and developed by Dream Reality Interactive and was just launched last week on all major VR platforms including HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Windows VR, PSVR, Oculus GO, Gear VR, and HTC Vive Focus.
The game is controller-free and the only way to guide your sphere along the dangerous path it is on is by using gaze controls. Arca’s Path VR is a physics-based world and offers 25 levels for players to explore. The levels are futuristic with a geometric vibe and an amazing soundtrack that you won’t want to turn off. The soundtrack was even created by artist Raffertie and it has an experimental electro feel to it.
The game follows a young girl who finds a VR video game in the trash and purpose of the game is to take your sphere through obstacles by only using your gaze and attempting to solve several different puzzles. The game does offer a nice story to it and it is told through a manga-style stills that you see while you make your way through the crumbling roads and worlds of the game.
This game is perfect for the person who just wants to throw on a VR headset and zone out. The pace is a lot slower than normal VR games and allows you to sit down and really immerse yourself into the game. The task that you face throughout the game is relatively easy to accomplish but at sometimes can be deceptive and throw you for a loop. The soundtrack gives you a great ambient sound in the background that helps you get even more immersed in the game.
Arca’s Path is now available for $18 on the Oculus Store, Steam, and The PlayStation Store. You can also purchase a mobile version of the game for $9 on the Oculus Sore for Oculus Go and Gear VR.
Rebellion is best known in the VR words for their adaptation of Battlezone (2016) and among numerous other PC and console games like the Sniper Elite series and Rouge Trooper Redux (2018).
The developers Dream Reality Interactive previously worked on Hold the World (2017) which starred broadcast Sir David Attenborough and Orbu which is an AR game for iOS using Apple’s ARKit. Their core team also worked at Sony’s London Studio, with titles like PlayStation VR Worlds and AR games for Wonderbook.
