Crystal Vibes feat. Ott.

One of VR"s most early kaleidoscopic music video dealies. Should be worth a dollar. It might have also been bundled with another set of experiences, I don’t remember. I’m probably thinking of something else. The music a funky dubstep dealie with strange sounds, so, up my alley for sure.

! I tried real hard to spell kaleidoscopic the first time correctly, and failed. I tried again just now looking at the correct spelling and failed.

This is a few minute psychedelic gem. It left me literally floored.

The Forest Quartet

The Forest Quartet

The Forest Quartet is a 3D narrative puzzler about a gone, but not forgotten, lead singer.

Play her spirit and travel through 3 acts unique to the members of her band for a final concert.

Face their emotions, solve puzzles and fight the corruption plaguing their souls.

  • Something strange has taken over the once green and lush nature that Kirk would draw his inspiration from. The fungus slowly creeps and turns growth into decay.

    Use the power of your voice to restore the forest.

  • The forest has become an abyss of darkness.

    Creatures have awoken from the depths of the underground, swarming JB’s house.

    Find the light that once existed to reignite JB’s musical spark.

  • A volcano has erupted, spitting lava out into the nearby forest causing fires and destruction.

    Reestablish a system of water in the deep underground and reconnect lost pipes to stop the volcanic eruption.

  • Sing to interact with objects, create light with your fingertips. Glide, float, and transform into butterflies to explore the band members' psyches.

  • Environments and objects add unique layers to the soundtrack. Whether it be crackling forest fires or the cold winds from the deep caverns.

  • Live through heartbreak and loss. Recover from grief and restore the band’s musical spark.

  • No written descriptions or instructions, progressively gain powers for your travels.

Note from the developer:

The Forest Quartet is a personal and family made project. The original jazz score is composed by Mads' father, Nina is voiced by his sister, the soundtrack is performed by select musicians from The Danish Radio Big Band based in Copenhagen, Denmark.

On My Own

On My Own

I wish the game would let me know that I should have some food prepared between biomes, before telling me I starved to death on my way to said biome and then deleting my save file of 3 hours. I also got really focused on finding foxes and forgot to eat. I had plenty of food, but then I “starved to death” and another save file of 5 hours was deleted. I understand it’s trying to be realistic, you should think of this intuitively, you should figure it out, etc. but forcing a complete restart after hours of tedious gathering and crafting just feels like a slap in the face.

just a garbage game.

Graphics 4/10 - kind of cute and retro.

Interface 1/10 - Feels like a bad phone port. it’s very clunky.

Music 2/10 - it gets unbelievably repeative hearing the same loop.

Guidance 3/10 - It doesn’t hold your hand. It pushes you from behind and laughs. then ignores you forever.

Saves 0/10 - Manual saves are overwritten by autosaves making M. Saves pointless.

Overall 2/10 - I’d return it if I bought it specifically. but it came in a bundle. I’ll check back in a month and edit this review if things improve. Right now? DO NOT BUY.

I know this is mean way to start a review but if you are going to take anything with you from this review, take those two sentences. Now with that out of the way, let’s begin.

The human mind, its wasted potential and other nonsense

Etherborn is a game that tries to way too hard to be deep and meaningful. The second you start a new game you will be hit with confusing statements how the human mind and body are wasted potential and how humans could have done so much more with ourselves but how instead we settled on mediocrity and blah blah blah blah, I’m sick of it already. This game pretty much talks about the same thing that those hidden Gods that created the world talk about in Assassins Creed games

Etherborn is one of those Humble Bundle indie games that will last you less than a few hours. My playtime says 4 hours, 1 of those was me being AFK. I went in fresh, so I would imagine that if you’re better at puzzle games or already know the answers you’d be able to pass this much faster.

The game has a nice aesthetic. I’d imagine that a significant portion of development time was spent getting the art style right. It follows a simple design that comes through with lighting and shading. There’s also a decent soundtrack here. I won’t call it the best I’ve heard, but there’s a variety of instrumentation with an ensemble that clearly knows what they’re doing. And they do it well.

I believe this to be a work in progress at this time.

Played with the HTC Vive and XBox Controller,

Vive controllers are useless at this point in time.

Very Relaxing and Meditative Journey through a beautiful landscape.

Options to turn off and on the dialog and I recommend the dialog, I did love the sounds of the running water and the animals. The movement of the plants in the wind is very well done. Make sure to look around so you do not miss any of the animals. Selections for time of day are very nice and my preference was morning which I really enjoyed.

How to describe Kanso? Well, you play with your mouse, and you have to draw a line around a shape! Sounds pretty simple right?

This is one of those relaxing, zen like games, where you think everything is all easy and simple, but quickly you realise that things take some skill. This is a “line following” game. Everything is very bright and colourful and really is a joy to play.

As you draw around the shapes, there are “Koi like Daemons”, they kind of look like giant sperms, or perhaps tadpoles, they are on their own little journey, come into contact with them and you will have to start again. As you draw your line, you cannot go backwards, only forwards, but you can speed up or slow down, or even stop, that will allow you to avoid the Daemons, and finish the shape. As you progress through the levels, the shapes become more interesting and there are more Daemons to avoid, some will try to follow you, some will avoid you, some do not care about you. But you must always care about all of them if you want to progress.

When The Past Was Around

When The Past Was Around

“I wish there was a way to know you were in the good old days before you actually left them." - Andy Bernard (The Office)

I’ve played this through more than once, When The Past Was Around is a simple relaxing game that i will miss for a weeks after i finished it. Back in 2018 when i first played a Raven Monologue and Banyu Lintar Angin i wish there is little bit more longer and maybe put something like a puzzle based on point and clicks because i really enjoyed it. The art style it’s so beautiful that i really wish i can draw something like that one day and don’t forget about the soundtracks it is super chill and lovely. After i’ve heard they going to released the game that something similiar i’m super excited and now here i am, I’m not disappointed at all. it is really great, beautiful art style, amazing soundtrack and now with puzzle! I really liked the way they tell the story without any dialogue at all they just.. like.. you’d know has some meaning and you figure it out like a raven with a “rock” and now Eda with hers memories. Sure worth experiencing especially during this difficult time, this is just touch your soul.

_An emotional, thought-provoking journey about love and loss that’s shown through the memories of Eda.

Eda’s beloved, assumed to be Mr. Owl, has passed away but is revived in Eda’s reflection. Because they had woven the gameplay and story together, the recurring chords in every scene were wonderfully incorporated into the ambiance and background. Little details, such as crumbling the tombstones in chapter one, “requiem,” along with the occasional shattering of plant pots, really emphasized Eda’s underlying grievance. I found it satisfying to uncover memories and move on by completing each puzzle. To me, the puzzles represent the struggles of letting go of the past. It takes time for acceptance and the resilience to realize that the person we held dear is no longer with us._****************************
