Description: From the developers of the award-winning game Prison Boss VR, Winds & Leaves is now coming to PC VR with enhanced visuals and room-scale support. Stranded in a barren landscape, you are the only one alive able to master the ancient art of growing vegetation. Your world is fragile, and you must find a way to end the recurring cataclysms that threaten it.

Review: ‘Winds & Leaves’ is a colourful adventure game that is not too dissimilar to ‘Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘ in terms of graphical style. You are tasked with bringing colour back to the world by planting, growing and performing various tasks. While it doesn’t have a heap of content you can find yourself taking things slowly and really getting into the game and it’s a beautiful (but often sparse) world. Sadly it is the controls that let this game down quite a lot. At times they can feel frustrating and other times they can make you feel as if your motion trackers are not working at all. You can struggle through it thought, but you really shouldn’t have to. It’s a great game it really is, but it needs a lot of work before it gets a gold award from me.
