Description: Craftmas is a virtual winter wonderland where anyone can create their own colourful 3D ornaments, decorate a tree, and take pictures to share their festive world. Whether you wish to build a simple snowman or a masterfully-engineered sleigh, Craftmas gives you the easy-to-use tools to get creative in 3D. Built for first-time VR users as well as experienced early-adopters, the Creation Station features both Easy and Advanced modes. We created Craftmas to share our love for VR with friends and family – and now, the broader community – in a way that brings everyone together. For those that aren’t able to build a delightful tree with you in person, you’re able to take and share snapshots of your virtual creations in-game.
Review: If this experiance was more polished, more stable and more finished it might have been something I could have enjoyed. I get the general idea of it I really do, but there is just so much wrong with it and at times it is just plain buggy. I spent 10 minutes trying to get a decoration off my hand, it seemed to become stuck to me! Then there is a small amount of colours, styles and options you get in which I feel you can’t really build the decorations you want. No personal photos on a bubble is a crying shame! I just don’t see this ever being worth £3.99, but if you grab it in a cheap bundle you might have a laugh playing around with it for 5 minutes or so.
