Description: Wayward Sky is a third person single player adventure game that focuses on atmosphere and storytelling through light puzzle solving designed to ease players into VR. You are Bess, a young pilot flying with your father when you crash into a mysterious fortress that emerges out of the clouds. Your father kidnapped and plane in ruins, you set out to explore the fortress and rescue him.

Playing the role of the daughter ‘Bess’ you have to risk life and limb exploring a mysterious floating fortress in search of your kidnapped father. You have to work your way through countless puzzles and sometimes a perilous pathway just to find out what happened to him. You control the action with the PlayStation Move controls. These will often take the shape of your hands, but they can also be the tools needed to finish the puzzle.

Review: I found interacting with things from twisting things to building things all pretty natural, being able to see my virtual hands made things oddly immersive even when in top-down click to move mode. I felt like I was guiding and helping the character rather than controlling her.

What I love about this game is that it has all been done before, many times, but never done this well. You really feel immersed in the survival of your character often to the point that blind panic sets in when something goes wrong (which it often did for me). While some might say it is a little short it felt it pretty much offered it’s money’s worth as it did take me a long time to get around. Truly an overlooked gem that everyone should play.
