Description: “夕鬼 -Yuoni:rises-” is a VR visual novel game where players sit at a desk and relive the characters’ experiences while progressing through the story. The story is set in mid-90s Japan when the Internet was still not widely used and cell phones were owned by a select few adults.

Review: While ‘夕鬼 零 Yuoni: Rises’ claims to be a VR graphical novel it is more a novel only read in VR. And when I say “read” I mean, by you in text form as there is no narration here. You do get the odd nice 360 environment to look at, but it is mostly reading a book with the odd picture in VR. There is the odd creepy noise and sound effect to go with the storyline, but I have to say the story just didn’t read right and was clearly translated from Japanese to English. If you ask me £9.29 is just a tad too much for this, but if you enjoy this sort of thing it might not be so bad. Personally it just wasn’t my cup of tea.
