Review: Normally when you see that a Steam VR game is for Oculus Rift Only you should set your expectations to super-low. But WOW, did this game experience surprise me. Featuring the highly talented acting of Dominic Monaghan who I grew up with on TV shows like LOST and he is perfect for this experience. And that is exactly what this is, it is an interactive cinematic experience about someone suffering from memory loss thanks to an evil AI (no story spoilers here). Sure the graphics are not amazing, but given the small price point, I have to give this game a Gold award! I do seriously think this game is a little too cheap for its own good especially because it is currently on sale as well. I would have been happy to recommend this even at full price. A big well done goes to the developers for this one, I loved every moment of it.
