Description: The latest release of Indie game House of Alice is now available on Steam! Unlike many VR games, this virtual bunny hunt starts out in a beautiful real-looking house. You can pick up vases and candlesticks and throw them around for an exciting crash or chase after the rabbits to collect points. Like Alice in Wonderland, this family-friendly game explores shifting perspectives of large and small and you can jump through the looking glass for surreal adventures.
Discover a rabbit hole to uncover new scenes and characters both inside and outside the house. This game keeps expanding so if you haven’t been in recently, it is time to go back. House of Alice is a good family game and a great way to experience Virtual Reality in a relaxed atmosphere. I hope you enjoy it and if you have ideas for things to add, please drop me a line.
Review: I love the idea the developer of House of Alice was trying to portray. It’s like a hidden object game in which you need to find rabbits in both big sizes and small, thus the “Alice in Wonderland” growing and shrinking. Sadly a good idea doesn’t always mean a good game and that is certainly the case here. The house looks nice enough I suppose, but the game mechanics and indeed lack of gameplay is what makes this “game” little more than an interactive experience. If you see this in a super sale for a quid or less maybe give it a go, but I can’t suggest anyone pays full-price for it.
