Welcome to another week chronicling the latest releases for HTC Vive. We’ve got a couple highlights for you that are of incredibly different flavors. Chess Ultra is a visually impressive experience that pits you either against online players or a collection of AI modeled after chess grandmasters. VINDICTA channels expertise of a different kind, giving you a shooting experience that’s enhanced by insight given to the dev team from a military expert.
In the meantime, if you missed the previous iteration of this list, you can see those new releases here. And don’t forget that UploadVR has a Steam community group, complete with a curated list of recommendations so that you don’t have to waste any money finding out what’s good in the world of VR.
We also have a top list of the absolute best HTC Vive games — which is updated every few months with the latest and greatest options.
New HTC Vive Releases on Steam
Xion, from Zenz VR
Price: $ 8.99 (Currently Discounted)
Xion channels the nostalgia of arcade shoot-em-up games with a 90s aesthetic splashed over voxels. The gameplay is kept interesting with randomized levels similar to rogue-likes and you can continue to enhance your ship as you work toward the hardest level.
Recommendation: Check this one out if you like either voxels or top-down shooters. Or both!
Unearthing Mars VR, from Winking Entertainment
Price: $ 10.49 (Currently Discounted)
Unearthing Mars drops you onto the mysterious red planet for an adventure. There are multiple gameplay mechanics from puzzle solving to shooting and, while short, players will experience quite a bit.
Recommendation: Give this one a look if you’re feeling like a journey through space.
Space Panic VR, from Xefier Games Inc.
Price: $ 5.24 (Currently Discounted)
Space Panic is an escape the room experience that takes place aboard a space station. There are multiple puzzles to solve but you’re also working to get the best time and climb the leaderboards.
Recommendation: Could be worth a look if you want more of a challenge.
SPACE DVRTS, from Laser Fuel Games
Price: $ 1.59 (Currently Discounted)
SPACE DVRTS is a dart combat experience that takes place across different environments in space. On a hostile planet, you play a few games of darts as you guard the ships while your team is on an adventure. But then things take a turn for the worst.
Recommendation: Mostly just two half-developed games mushed together. Good price, but probably a pass for most people.
VR Photo Viewer, from SprocketVR
Price: $ 9.74 (Currently Discounted)
This program gives you a platform to view your Photosphere, Cardboard Camera, and other media in room scale VR. You can load content from your Google Photo collection or local system.
Recommendation: There are free and/or cheaper platforms that are more robust. Pass.
Mocove Arts VR, from Mocove Studio
Price: $ 2.99 (Currently Discounted)
Mocove Arts VR welcomes you into a virtual museum where you can view legendary works of art that span different time periods. There are over 1,000 paintings and over 50 sculptures for you to view with 14 pieces of classical music accenting your experience.
Recommendation: Pretty solid escape that can serve as a bit of calming, informative tour. Great for art connoisseurs.
Diesel Express VR, from […] UploadVR
