theBlu (re-launch)

Very impressive passive experience series about habitants of the oceans, released 6 years ago on PC VR platforms as paid app, a bit reworked and re-arranged as free-to-play product with separate DLC's

Strong sides:

  • Really pure visual look
  • Totally different scenes
  • Passive gameplay - great for introducing VR
  • Very impressive
  • Brand new episode as paid DLC

Weak sides:

  • Overall price increased
  • Deterioration of main menu compared to the original version
  • Quite short scenes
  • Free version includes only single short scene

Summary and conclusion:

A nice try to relaunch one of the classic apps (with some cons), nice to introduce users that never used VR before. A good possibility to the audience who never owned the original app to obtain it for free.

The Signifier

Story-driven investigation adventure, conceptually similar to Transference, but with less mystical vibes and more closer to futuristic life
