Description: Theo’s world gets increasingly surreal after befriending a band of misfits on a scrapyard island. Follow Theo into the twisted world of Phaser Reach, the Greatest Space Station North of the Harbor… Adventures in the Light & Dark is a kinetic visual novel with a less traditional presentation, embracing the elements of reading a book and letting your imagination roam freely. Experience Theo’s story in virtual reality or desktop!
Review: Adventures in the Light & Dark is a VR book reading experience, but it doesn’t stop at just being a book. There are little but effective sound effects in the background as well as some wonderful visual animations in the background to keep you immersed. While this isn’t going to be for everyone I found it oddly relaxing and a nice little break from all the shooters and horrors I often load into my headset. Sometimes you just need something different and this offers just that.
