Description: The Curious Study of Dr. Blackwood is a short, sweet, and simple VR tech demo that shows off our VR skills, as well as gives a sneak peek at our work on our first title, a supernatural adventure game called Project Spectral. Relax in the beautiful virtual space, mess around with weird objects and magical abilities, or dig a little deeper to uncover some insider secrets we’ve left for you to find.
Review: While I am happy to report that I found ‘The Curious Study of Dr. Blackwood: A VR Tech Demo’ an enjoyable experience I have to wonder what the point of it was. It’s not a demo of a full game, it is more a tech demo to showcase the developer’s skills off. To the developer’s credit it looks amazing, sounds amazing and is full of amazing things to see and do, but with no point to it all other than a little bit of good looking fun. All I can say is that it is a good job it is free otherwise there would have been no point in downloading it.
