Description: Biolum is a VR sci-fi thriller that invites you on an exploration mission to the deepest depths of the ocean. With voices of actresses Charlotte Rampling and Dominique Tipper, you discover a beautiful world of bioluminescent creatures. But all is not what it seems. What lies below the surface?

Review: ‘Biolum’ is a 25-minute on-rails experience about an underwater exploring finding new life. Voiced by none other than ‘Dominique Tipper’ from ‘The Expanse’ she does a great job of reading a crap script and putting some much-needed action into the experience. It’s not a bad experience at all and while it does get weird AF towards the end it kept me interested for the whole journey. There is a small amount of interaction with the use of a torch and a jetpack, but you don’t get a lot of movement at all, it’s mostly just cinematic. For the money it is worth a look for sure, but I do wish there was a lot more to do.
