Summary

Skyworld is a fun VR game. I mean I had lots of tracking issues but I cannot put the blame on the game fully, maybe it’s the tightly compacted menus that threw me off and made me feel too close to it all? Anyway, the game is like a tower defense man management sim. Using the two move controllers means you can easily grab or point at everything and that alone makes everything feel smooth. I just loved watching fights play out or everyone going about their business, the table is a cool idea and again keeps everything comp at good or bad. For a VR experience, it is very deep and does offer a lot of gameplay.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
