Description: The Beanstalk is a virtual reality fairytale experienced based around the classic, “Jack and the Beanstalk.” It’s a student project created by a team at BYU Provo, and now we’re releasing it so that you can try it out for free. Get inside, explore the world of Jack and the Giant, have fun, and be careful not to fall while climbing the Beanstalk!

With the download of this game, you will get access to the complete build that we created while at BYU. It features fully immersive room-scale VR experiences including handling objects, climbing, throwing, teleportation, and even planting beans! You’ll climb, you’ll shrink, you’ll explore and discover, you’ll see the classic story told as you’ve never seen before! The gameplay is meant to give newcomers to VR a quick taste of the possibilities and get them hungry for more.

Review: The Beanstalk is an interactive nursery rhyme in which you will get to see, hear and play the role of Jack and the Beanstalk. While there isn’t a whole lot of content here the short skips into the story should keep a little one happy for a while. The problem is the game sees you climbing up the stalk which is extremely nauseating meaning it is probably best not being played by young children. But it’s definitely not for us adults neither. The only thing really going for this is the cool 2D/3D graphics and that it is free. Why not give it a go yourself and let me know what you think about it in the comments below.
