Run of Mydan – Early Access

Viveport Review: Run of Mydan – Early Access    This first-person shooter draws inspiration from Halo and Destiny! Definitely a wonderful thing.   By Emily Medlock, Greenlit Content     Skimming through screenshots for Run of Mydan in Viveport immediately made me want to play this game. One of my favorite things about this title, for example, is the setting. As a Bungie fan, it’s easy to see that inspiration was drawn from Halo and Destiny. With this in mind, I always wanted to dive int

Viveport Review: Starbear: Taxi   Take remote control of Starbear’s taxi as you help him move passengers in a miniature world full of bandit raccoons and other wily obstacles.   By Bill Loguidice, Greenlit Content     Following in the tradition of classics like Muse's Space Taxi (1984) and Sega's Crazy Taxi (1999), Starbear: Taxi takes the mundane task of conveying passengers from one destination to another for a fee and makes it fun.

Prison Boss VR

Viveport Review: Prison Boss VR   This fun and addicting game offers tense moments but ultimately feels dull.   By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content   Prison Boss VR thrusts the player into the life of a prisoner, locked in their cell as they try to craft various items to earn money and reputation with other inmates. The overall goal is to eventually become the boss, or the guy that everyone comes to for the things they need, and while the game is fun for a bit, it ultimately grows dull a

Pixel Ripped 1989

Viveport Review: Pixel Ripped 1989   Step into a wacky world where reality and video games clash in an epic mash-up that will leave you wanting to play for hours.   By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content   When you first start Pixel Ripped 1989, the world feels nostalgic, with cardboard cutouts lining the wall bringing everything to life.

Magic Lantern VR

Viveport Review: Magic Lantern VR Relax in this smartly-designed virtual playroom, with fun for the whole family.   By Desmond Madison, Greenlit Content    In the age of the VR content boom of the last three years, it’s safe to say that there’s been an underserved amount of experiences intended for younger audiences. Some hardware manufacturers tend to limit use to ages 12 or 13 and up, but Vive has recommended a sweet spot of about seven years old with limited use. What that means is tha

Mars 2030

Viveport Review: Mars 2030   Beautiful imagery and stunning vistas feel flat against the lack of challenge in Mars 2030.   By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content   When I think of Mars, I imagine the terror that comes from exploring a place completely unknown to man. So, when I dove into Mars 2030 for the first time, I was intrigued to see how the experience handled the thrill of the unknown. Unfortunately, pretty visuals, stunning vistas, and an excellent experience are all brought to thei

Moss

Viveport Review: Moss   This harrowing tale of an unlikely hero is touching and shows just how fluid virtual reality platformers can be.   By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content    I’ll come right out and say it. I’m not a big fan of platforming or side scrolling games in virtual reality. I’ve always felt like they fit better on a computer screen than they do in virtual reality. However, Moss might be the game that makes me really change my mind.   Told through the eyes of a small mouse n

Ark Park

Viveport Review: ARK Park   The idea of a living, breathing dinosaur-based theme park in virtual reality is brought to its knees by over saturation and a lack of any real identity.   By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content   More is not always better. When ARK Park was first announced, I was excited, even enamored at the idea. However, now that I’ve had a chance to actually dive into the game and try it out for myself, I really can’t help but feel like the developers have over-extended thems

AI Rebellion

Viveport Review: AI Rebellion   Immergity’s starfighter sim delivers beautiful visuals but lackluster gameplay.   By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content   AI Rebellion has a lot to offer when it comes to visuals. The game looks beautiful, and the sensation of flying through space is wonderful. The bad thing, though, is that these beautiful visuals are all torn to pieces by lackluster audio and a limited gameplay loop.   The first time I loaded into AI Rebellion, I was excited. The cockpit
