Review:Lost Ember is a story driven game that plays on your heartstrings from start to finish with both its beautiful music and variation. Set in a beautiful dream-like world this is a game that has a unique and magical feel to it. Sadly there isn’t really any VR interaction, it is more a “playable in VR” port in which you use a gamepad or the motion controllers as a gamepad. But for me that only made it that bit more magical.

Yes, the game is nauseating at times and there is the occasional bug to deal with, but for a few hours, this game easily takes you away from it all and offers something so many other VR games don’t and that is a death-free, memorable adventure. While some hate it, I think more VR games should use a gamepad. It doesn’t have to be all shoot this, pick up that, it could just be a visually stunning and emotionally devastating game.
