Description: Sam & Dan: Floaty Flatmates is a co-op VR game where communication and teamwork are key. You are playing as Sam or Dan, one of the two survivors trapped in your apartment because of a major world flood. Your buddy is trapped in a different building across the street, work together to get supplies to build a bridge towards a boat. Find tools to make communication easier, like a tin can, that can be used as a can phone. Also, avoid falling in the water, there’s a big shark!
Review: Sam & Dan: Floaty Flatmates is an odd game indeed. It is a co-op adventure game of sorts in which you and a friend (no single player options here) need to use the tools and things around you to perform a range of tasks which consists of building a bridge, shooting things and sometimes fixing things. If you speed-run this game you will be all done in about 10 mins flat, but if you take your time and mess about a bit you will get more out of this experience. It’s worth a look if you can get a friend to help, but there is nothing here for us single players with no friends at all.
