LEGAL WORLD: AFTER – If you liked the Steven Spielberg cinematic saga, then Jurassic World: Aftermath is the game for you. It’s a video game that takes place between the events of Jurassic World and the Fallen Kingdom sequel, halfway between solving puzzles and investigating.

Its VR version, which can be used by connecting Quest 2 to the PC via the Oculus Link cable, allows venture into a medieval world full of activities, memorable characters and legendary feats using a realistic control system, engaging and fun.

Stride – Running like a parkour expert in a virtual world? It’s possible thanks to Stride, a freerun game in which you can jump, slide, climb here and there, but also run on walls and much more on the roofs of a city that pushes the gamer to exceed his limits.

The more daring, on the other hand, will experience truly unique emotions!
SUPER HOT RV – A futuristic game created by a bunch of friends during a Game Jam which, after being depopulated on PC and consoles, takes on a whole new flavor with virtual reality: Superhot VR, like its original version, is a shooting game in which time only passes when the player is moving, in which one hit is enough to be killed and where to pass the level you need to study the movements of opponents, moving just enough to avoid their blows and kill them. Engaging and intriguing in an almost obsessive way!
THE WALKING DEAD: SAINTS & SINNERS – One of the first triple-A video games made for Oculus Quest, the single-player adventure set in the world of The Walking Dead takes us to a zombie-filled New Orleans by focusing everything on a series of pillars, such as a system of decisions and consequences, an advanced craft for building equipment and a combat system that combines melee solutions, stealth infiltration and firearms. Do not miss.
TROUSERS – A game that shines thanks to the excellent use of music, projecting us into space like a frenzied beetle that must move through the surrounding environment avoiding being hit by enemies or crashing into obstacles.
