Description: Run a wacky blacksmith’s shop inside an 8-bit fantasy RPG video game in Forgesmith VR! Use a hammer and anvil to smash away at hot metal in time with retro chiptunes to forge swords, axes, and spears for loyal customers. The higher your score, the better quality the weapon. There’s not much time to marvel at your handiwork once the weapon is done, as your customers have quests to finish! Once a customer leaves, watch your patrons battle it out in a randomized roguelike RPG on an ‘80s coin op arcade machine in your shop. Forgesmith VR uses Gear VR’s new motion controls to create the most visceral 8-bit retro roguelike rhythm RPG strategy simulation ever made!

Review: Forgesmith VR is one of those games that doesn’t really make any sense leaving you wondering what on earth you are playing, and more importantly…why you are doing what you are doing. But yet, despite the seeming crazy randomness of this games design, it is also an awful lot of fun to play. You might have already worked out that you will be making (forging) weapons, only you will be doing it to music while a 2D retro arcade game character comes to life and dances while your forge. Then once the weapon is made you need to play the arcade game and see how well the character does with the weapon you have forged. If you think that sounds crazy, you should try and play it! If you are willing to try something different give this a go as I guarantee you will have fun at the very least.
