Description: Hello Captain is VR short story about being a pirate captain. Command your simple crew and have fun at the sea. Handsfree experience: Use only your gaze to control the actions in the game. Do you know Game Jams? ‘Hello Captain’ got its start at Global Game Jam 2017.

Review: This very short game is an odd mix of strategy game and action rolled into one. You have to “clear the deck” of items via a crew that only seem to obey basic commands and will only run in one direction. Think Despicable Me Minions of the high-seas and you have what this game is all about. While this game indeed a short story it is a great laugh. With just a few simple additions it could easily be something far greater. Its good to see people still haven’t run out of great ideas for the use of VR. Its cheap, it’s a great laugh and I’m sure it will grow into something truly special.
