Description: Dichotomy is a VR rhythm-like game set within a celestial depiction of the mind. With levels themed around the five main types of OCD, you must avoid negative thoughts and compulsive behaviour to break through to a clear mind.

Review: While ‘Dichotomy’ describes itself as a “rhythm-like game” there is seemingly no rhythm, rhyme or reason to the game at all. You stand in some sort of light circle and even after reading the tutorial text 3 times I was still unable to work out how to “play” this experience. It seems to be some sort of artistic simulation of what it is like to live with OCD, but it does so in a way that is hard to understand. While I am willing to suggest that I was just too stupid to work out how to play the game, it is not something I will be recommending for a download. But it is at least free to try so it doesn’t cost anything to prove me wrong.
