Description: VR Puppet Game is meant to be speedrun. It is meant to enrage you. Become a marionettist in VR and get your marionette across a complex series of obstacle courses. Jump around, fall into portals, and guide your puppet to the next level. Give your marionette a sword. Fight some puppet-dudes and defeat the giant bosses.
Review: ‘VR Puppet Game’ is a platform/interactive experience in which you control a string puppet along with a series of obstacles. While you do have to bear in mind the fact that this is free it is as basic as games get with the most basic of graphics and sadly also levels of control. But I have to say, on paper the idea of this game does have a lot of potential and to be fair it is a good use of the motion controllers. At the end of the day, it is creative indie games like that that will push VR into the future and without them, VR gaming has no future. So for that reason, I give this my recommendation, but only for creative potential reasons.
