Description: Red Matter is a story-driven VR puzzle adventure game set during a dystopian Sci-Fi Cold War. Take on the role of Agent Epsilon, an astronaut of the Atlantic Union dispatched to an abandoned Volgravian base on Rhea, one of Saturn’s moons. Your mission: to investigate a shady top-secret research project.
Solve puzzles in a beautiful, high-detail brutalist environment which only becomes more and more surreal as the story progresses. Use an array of hi-tech tools to decipher hidden messages and mechanisms and uncover ever deeper and darker secrets of the facility. But beware of what you may find… Once you discover the truth, will you be able to stomach it?
Review: Red Matter is not so much about itself being a brilliant game, but more about the game’s developers flexing their skills and showing people “look, this is what is possible if you try hard enough!” and while I will say I really did love the game itself I was more impressed like everyone else with the quality of the graphics. This is one of those games you need to see to believe and it really does give everyone a lot of hope for future games made for the Oculus Quest. Download this, enjoy it a little bit then showcase it to anyone who might be interested in getting an Oculus Quest, or anyone saying the Quest will be limited due to its graphical capabilities.
