Description: Kira is a FREE mini-experience that immerses users in a Faerie workshop full of mysterious structures, magical devices, and colourful beasts. This experience is designed to highlight the immersive qualities of VR for friends and family, allowing them to explore each nook and cranny of a fantasy scene. Kira was originally designed as a way-point navigation experiment and so the only interaction is moving from place to place in the environment. Its a simple experience and not intended to be experienced as a ‘game’ but it’s a project that we really liked so we wanted to share.
Review: Kira is almost everything you might need in a VR experience. It looks beautiful, it’s easy to play and its peaceful and relaxing meaning you can easily lose yourself in its dream-like world. Sadly there is nothing to do inside of this wonderful world! I mean, literally nothing! You can teleport around and enjoy the sights and sounds it has to offer, but don’t expect gameplay past that. There are no puzzles, nothing to interact with and yet I still enjoyed it! Sure, it will be a little boring for most people, but if you just want something to relax in this world is perfect. Add in the fact that it is free and you have yourself an oddly empty game that is worth downloading!
