Description: It’s been six years since the Undead War shattered the world. Nightmares stalk the land, and sickness and death pervade the world. At the centre of this nightmare, the Witching Tower’s Queen directs the chaos, feeding, and growing stronger. You have been chosen to survive by forces you don’t understand. You are Anna, a fugitive. For years, you have been hunted by the Tower’s forces, lead by the Queen of the Undead. Now, dragged to her in chains, you seem destined for a worse death than most. The Queen believes you possess a secret that can reshape the world, for good or for ill – and she’s determined to extract it from you.
Review: You could almost swear ‘Witching Tower VR was made by two different teams. One team wanted a classic dungeon crawler but lacked the ability to capture the combat correctly and the other team wanted to make an escape room style of game and stuck a load of puzzles into the game, but was too bothered if you couldn’t complete them (although most of them are pretty easy). There are parts of this game I love and others not so much, but I do still feel it is just about worth its asking price. If you rush through it, it should take you a few hours, but take your time and you will feel you are getting your money’s worth.
