Description: Stage Presence is the anti-guitar hero. A comedy-horror-karaoke game where you need to use your voice and wits to win over a fickle mob!

You’re the lead singer in the world’s unluckiest band playing a huge show when the bands equipment fails! You need to keep the crowd entertained with your voice (and weird unlockables) while the gear is fixed. As the crowd get angrier, they start heckling, throwing bottles of piss at you, shining lasers in your eyes and turning into demons. The usual stuff.

Stage Presence’s unique Multiplayer mode puts you in the crowd in another player’s game! Cheer them to victory or heckle them failure with the gear at your disposal – laser pens, bottles, glowsticks and flares!

Review: First up, I have to give genuine heartfelt respect to the developers of ‘Stage Presence’ for bringing something really unique and original to the VR gaming scene. Sadly the truth is it just doesn’t work very well at all and that is this “games” biggest problem. There is more than enough content and unlockables to justify the asking price and if you can ignore the fact that the game doesn’t really work you will get a lot out of this. But sooner or later you will start to realise that it doesn’t matter what you are doing or saying, the crowd will just react to anything (just as long as it is loud enough). Also, you can forget the multiplayer mode as there is no-one around to play this. Here is my problem, it’s worth a look and probably worth the asking price, but as a game…it kind of sucks.
