Description: Happy Place is a virtual space for tranquillity and relaxation, designed to distract from worldly problems like pain and give rise to positive emotions like ease and calmness. A place where the user can sit back, get some time for contemplation and escape from reality.

This app includes a beautiful stylized camping environment where one can interact with nature and experience the changes from sun to rain and day to night. Guided relaxation and soothing music is optional. Every unique experience is highly individual.

Review: With so many rest and relaxation apps for VR making sure you bring something new to the table of at least a high-quality replica is essential. Sure, Happy Place looks pretty great and the meditation guidance voice is pleasant enough, but by cramming so many interactional elements into it its made the “Happy Place” too busy and happy to be relaxing! At the end of the day this is a free app and while Happy Place apparently offers you little more than a Happy Place to unwind and relax, it will sadly keep you alert and active looking at all the cool interactive animations. Don;t download this app to relax, download it as a challenge to find all the fun things to see, find and click on.
