Check out the VR Game Roundup for May 7 below:

Demeo

This week’s VR Game Roundup begins with Demeo, which is a classic tabletop role-playing game in virtual reality. This dungeon crawler will test your skills. There’s a free demo, so you are able to give it a look before buying and make sure it’s right for you.

Fitness Potential

You’re placing virtual cards to survive in this role-playing game and rolling dice, so don’t expect to get a workout in. It is a great test for your brain, though, as you will have to be smart if you are going to come out on top.

Developer/Publisher: Resolution Games

Release Date: May 6, 2021

Compatible With: Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality.

Price: $29.99

Flow Weaver

Released earlier this year on Oculus platforms, Flow Weaver is a magical escape room title. Now on Steam, even more players can learn spells as they switch between dimensions in order to escape a jail cell they are locked in. You’ll be able to find different clues in each dimension and find objects that will aid your escape.

Fitness Potential

This is a fully seated title, so this won’t be much of a workout. However, it’s received solid reviews and is a fun game if you’re looking for something to test your brain.

Release Date: May 3, 2021

Compatible With: Oculus Rift

The Wizards – Dark Times

One of the biggest releases this week is The Wizards – Dark Time, which is now available on Oculus Quest, and is the best workout game. This sequel takes place during a plague, which means even more fearsome enemies to go up against with your magic spells. Everything is done through hand gestures, which makes for a very physical experience.

Fitness Potential

Our review of the original The Wizards gave it a fitness score of 7/10, so you can expect around the same here. It’s got a solid presentation, a lot of atmosphere, and plenty of variety. It’s a solid arm workout as it uses your arms and shoulders, although there’s not much in terms of legs and core. If you enjoyed the original, then this is certainly worth picking up.

Developer and Publisher: Carbon Studio

Release Date: May 6, 2021

Compatible With: Oculus Quest

Price: $24.99

Imercyve: Living with Intellectual Disability

Developed in partnership with the non-profit Mercy Connect, it attempts to build empathy by simulating a disability. You’ll experience first-hand what it’s like to do everyday tasks with a disability. Proceeds also go to aid more development on games that explore “essential physical and mental health subject matter.”

 

Fitness Potential

While not a workout game, this is a meaningful mental experience. That’s certainly worth experiencing and at less than $7, it doesn’t break the bank either.

Developer and Publisher: Valley General

Release Date: May 5, 2021

Compatible With: Valve Index, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift.

Price: $5.94 ($6.99)
