Description: Tiny Town VR is a casual world-building game in virtual reality, inspired by the nostalgic storytelling power of LEGO and action figures mixed with the excitement of making something original. Build your world, big or small, then fill it with thousands of different objects. Add characters whose joints can be pushed, pulled and twisted into any pose imaginable, then give them a voice with custom speech bubbles. Once the scene is set, capture your story using the in-game camera, add captions, then save it or share it with your friends, direct to Facebook. Make something funny. Make something powerful. Make something your own.
Review: Tiny Town VR is not so much a game, it is more a story creator. But that doesn’t stop this from being a lot of fun provided you have a large helping of imagination. There are al sorts of props, themes and objects that you can not only place down and move about, but you can also give each little character a custom speech bubble. I have to say the range of items you can use here is quite staggering and while it doesn’t have the stop-motion animation tools you might expect I am sure someone can make good use of this program. But is it really worth £10.99? To the right person, it might be, but to us gamers, it is pretty much pointless and not something to bother with.
