Description: You’re stuck in a time loop as Phil Connors, Jr., back in Punxsutawney for Groundhog Day in this virtual reality game set in the world of the iconic hit movie. Solve puzzles and interact with branching narrative gameplay, to break the time-loop cycle to escape into tomorrow.

Review: The 1993 Bill Murray movie Groundhog Day might not seem like a likely setting for a VR game, but I have to say I enjoyed playing Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son way more than I thought I would. In fact, once I knuckled down into it I found myself fully immersed and enjoying the tasks and the building storyline as you learn more and more with each passing day (played over and over). For some reason, it just works and while the cartoon graphics might not be for everyone I think it helped to keep things light despite some often emotional storylines. This is well worth a download if you have seen the original film or not because even on its own it’s simply a great game.
