Phil Fish’s platformer isn’t your typical side-scroller as you swivel the game’s world between four different perspectives to solve its puzzles. This allows for plenty of scope for easter eggs and hidden treasures if you’re willing to look for them, and the lavish detail this game boasts means you’ll likely want to. Some sequences might test your lateral thinking, but Fez proves that difficulty is just a matter of perspective. The retro, synthesised sound effects contribute to Proteus’ tranquil atmosphere and signal changing seasons. If you’re feeling fully refreshed by this calming game and want something a little creepier, however, you can make it darker with the Purgateus mod. Much of life’s stresses stem from the never-ending list of mundane daily tasks we must complete.

The VR version of Superhot is already part of the VR canon, and it’s yet another game that shines on the Quest. Dodging bullets and throwing coffee cups in slow motion feels a lot better in as much space as possible without wires. Until You Fall is a roguelite-style dungeon crawler for the Quest with a neon-soaked art style and a fun, arcadey swordfighting combat system. It’s not quite Hades, but it’s about as close as you’ll get in VR right now.
The yellow perch juga is simple and enchanting in the best approach possible. There’s no intricate wordplay, only the adorable graphic of some tiny orange birds coming to relax on this bright little bit of fish. Not every capture quote needs to be a masterpiece, and this one shows offAnimal Crossing’s offbeat charm. I don’t know that there’s like, a normal amount of times to mention Austin the butler from Homescapes in a domestic arrangement, but fish shooting games we’ve definitely exceeded it long ago. Not only does Austin pressure his parents into keeping the house, but he brings me into the scheme as well. Every colorful cavalcade of match-3 combinations turns into stars, which I have to spend on Austin’s whims. When his father’s PTSD becomes too uncomfortable for Austin, he renovates his dad’s entire garage and custom car to ensure that his father is properly shamed and pressured into driving again.
At its $299 price point, the new and improved Oculus Quest 2 headset is likely to draw a lot of new people into VR. And while the Quest platform is much more locked down and curated than the Wild West of SteamVR, there’s still a lot of stuff coming out all the time, so it can be hard to know where to begin with the library.

His mom is a little harsh a few times, so Austin recreates the garden of his parents’ first date in their front yard. His parents repeatedly ask him to stop, and he pours thousands of his own dollars into renovations. Is it out of joy, or are they terrified at what their son will do next? While they slept, he installed a massive fish tank and hired a local artist to carve busts of their ancestors. Gardenscapes seems much more innocent on the surface, but Homescapes immediately goes off the rails. The game begins with Austin visiting his elderly parents, who live in a massive mansion that they’re unable to maintain. His father has developed a case of PTSD after a car accident, and his mother is socially isolated while she struggles with the burden of being a caretaker.
There’s lots of scope to mix and match weapons to help you get as far as you can through the world. The update isn’t available just yet, but the game is worth checking out either way. Basically, you’re in a school with a bow and arrow, and cubes start appearing around you, and you have to shoot them while dodging their shots. But shooting a bunch of arrows in quick succession turns out to be incredibly demanding, and the result is a giddily entertaining workout. But from what I’ve played so far, I think it’s worth keeping an eye on. The game looks reasonably good on the Quest 2, though some of its darker environments make me wish the headset used OLED displays like its predecessor. But the resolution and general graphical fidelity are much higher on the Quest 2, making it overall a better experience on the newer device.
