Description: A frantic and whimsical local multiplayer party game for VR. Takelings have invaded this quiet suburban home and it’s up to Hal to exterminate these pests using whatever means necessary! Progress through the house where each room is a different game. Take turns in VR as Hal facing off against the Takelings controlled by up to 8 couch players using their smartphones and/or joysticks.

Review: One of the most underrated VR genres has to be the multiplayer party-games genre. Sure, there are some notable games here already like ‘Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes’, but ‘Takelings House Party’ brings more shine and polish to this often-overlooked category. You can have up to 8 players playing on the PC and one person in VR, so you really can turn it into a mini part, plus the controls for both inside VR and playing on the PC are easy to lear meaning most people should have fun playing it. You don’t even need them all running on the PC as you can also play it on your smartphone with an app. While there isn’t a whole lot of mini-games to play you should still get your money’s worth here if you play with 4 or more other players, but for us single players this is probably one to avoid.
