The Oculus Winter Sale is now going on with dozens of games on sale for the Oculus Rift + Oculus Touch, and Samsung Gear VR! BTW, HTC Vive users can also use some of the Rift software via Revive. Plus, Steam will have its own winter sale starting tomorrow!
First here are the 24-hour sales for Dec. 20 (check daily to see the different deals):
– The Climb (Oculus Rift; regularly $49.99, on sale for $24.99): a rock climbing game. I found it to be a highly immersive game.
– Eve Valkyrie (Oculus Rift; regularly $59.99, on sale for $29.99): a space dogfight game.
– Dreadhalls (Gear VR; regularly $4.99, on sale for $0.99): a horror survival game where you are trapped in a labyrinth. Great for its terrifying atmosphere but I got nauseated playing it due to the artificial locomotion. There’s a demo available – try before you buy.
– Annie Amber (Gear VR; regularly $7.99, on sale for $1.99): a sci-fi exploration / puzzle game, where you solve puzzles to discover Annie Amber’s story.
