Roto Recommendations #2

‘Single Player’

This week we’re going to be exploring the wonders of single player VR games. From the fully immersive, spooky kind, to the more fun and light-hearted. 


As always, if you have played any games on the RotoVR chair that we’ve not listed in this series, or you know of a few games that you think would work well with the RotoVR chair, please get in touch through our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.  


If you’re more of a gamer and would like to chat with us on a different platform, then please feel free to join our Discord.

Beat Saber


Quite possibly one of the most popular VR games of the last few years, Beat Saber is a true test of hand-eye coordination and a whole lotta fun. 


With funky neon colours (which our CS Manager Bekah recently found out can be customised.. mind blown), catchy songs and great rhythms, it’d be hard to find someone out there that doesn’t like it. It feels reminiscent of the Guitar Hero era, but better. 


Then the game devs go and drop an update that puts some of the levels in 360 degrees. Here’s where the Roto makes things even better. The chair turns as you’re looking for the blocks, so you can focus on keeping a super high score up! 


The RotoVR chair rotates smoothly, providing a seamless (and seated) experience!

Boneworks


Described by Steam as an ‘Experimental Physics VR Adventure.’ You can use ‘found weapons, tools, and objects to fight across dangerous playscapes and mysterious architecture’.


Playing this game is so much fun. Even just heading through the tutorial teaches you so much. From learning how to manoeuvre through the level, to picking up pistols, loading them and firing, this game feels very real. 


The gentle rumble that comes through the chair immerses you deeper into the world and the rotating of the chair eases any motion sickness that you may be feeling. 


We definitely recommend this one.

Half-Life Alyx


Valve’s latest offering in the Half-Life series, set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2. This is a VR game that offers beautiful graphics, a rich storyline, and plenty of action.


Kotaku.com.au ran a story on the game, and said that ‘[i]t is cool to bend down and grab something or actually crawl through a hole in the wall or duck behind a car for cover from gunfire… soon, you might start to feel your knees and back tingle with pain… Sitting down while Alyx ran around the world felt weird. I almost felt guilty. But with my body no longer being strained and no pain in my knees, I could play for hours. I also found that I was able to focus more on the world and puzzles.’


We recently reported something similar to this in our last blog where we found that sitting in Skyrim VR allowed us to play for a lot longer.


The Roto would really enhance this game, allowing for seamless turning and exploring, as well as allowing users to sit and play this game for hours, and as this is a long-awaited game, we’re sure there will be some binging sessions. 


Available on HTC Vive, Oculus Rift




And there you go! A few more suggestions of games that we think are/would be amazing on the Roto. As mentioned before, if you’ve played any different games on the chair, or have recommendations of games to try, then please feel free to get in touch, we’d love to hear them.
