Description: Inspired by Iceland’s unique landscape and colours I sought out to make a realistically inspired exploration experience set on iceland’s southern coast. The game is a short immersive walk through an expansive section of land with moss, glacial rivers, foggy grasslands, waterfalls and scenic vistas. Use the game’s camera to observe and interact with the world around you while listening to an immersive curated soundtrack. Your attentiveness and eagerness to explore will be rewarded with access to hidden areas, areas that will be easily missed by a rushed player.

Review: Having been to Iceland’s southern coast in real life I kind of knew the sorts of landscapes I would expect to see and to be honest I really wasn’t disappointed, in fact, in terms of visuals I was blown away. This really is a stunning experience and while there is no game as such here it is something you can enjoy for hours on end. Sure, you could rush through it all in less than an hour, but if you relax and take in the wonderful sights you should be able to get value for money here. This is one of those VR experiences you show others to demonstrate the power of VR. Sadly you do have to pay £3.99 for the VR DLC, but it is well worth it if you ask me.
