Description: Helios is a Social VR game made in Unreal Engine 4 by SubLight Games. With the power of Unreal Engine, Helios will offer a more immersive, interactive, and creator-friendly offering than anything currently on the market today. When it is completed, you will be able to explore user-created virtual worlds with your friends and share avatars all through the Steam Workshop.

Review: I am probably the most underqualified person to talk about ‘Helios’, but what I can remark on is just how easy it is to use. In short, it is a Desktop framework for VR based social media apps. It seems to have most of the tools you need and even supports full-body tracking and hand and eye tracking right out of the box. While it is clearly basic at the moment they do have a nice road map ahead to add even more features. This is one VR creation tool worth keeping an eye on, especially with bigger companies veering away from the VR community.
