Red Matter - VR

Postby Tyler » Fri Jun 01, 2018 11:08 am

New game my podcast guys are raving about. They claim it's worth every penny even tho it's 3-4 hours. Lone Echo was cheaper and was like 10 hours tho.

Normally $35, on sale for $25. I bought. I want another break from short experiences and want a longer story.

Played just under an hour tonight. This game is top 3 best visual VR games I've played. The textures on the space rocks is insane. The game is mostly a puzzle, but it does a good job of making the puzzle feel natural to the world. There is some kind of sci-fi mystery going on (a lot like Lone Echo), but I haven't seen much of that. Some of the game was spooky and I was ready to rip the headset off. I don't think it is a horror game at all, I am just a baby.

I am really enjoying this game and fear I am half way done with it already. I haven't had to look up any of the puzzles online yet. It was very rewarding figuring some out because they make you feel like a frickin genius. I'm enjoying the gameplay of this more than Lone Echo and a lot of people praise that as the best VR game to date.

Location is this game is interesting. When VR first came out teleportation and then roomscale was the big method. A lot of games now offer full locationmation. The teleportation on this game doesn't instantly bring you to a spot like Rec Room, but instead when you pick a node to teleport to it shows you jumping and landing to that spot. Since this is a space game there is low gravity so it is a slow animation instantly of quickly flashing to a new spot.

Beat this tonight. The game is probably 2ish hours if you don't get stuck on many puzzles. I'm happy to say I beat them all without looking anything up. The ending is a little confusing, but I think I understand it. Things got pretty creepy at times, but I handled it. Must play for someone who wants a cool puzzle game. The game is slow though, no action or combat.

Top 3 VR experiences for me

I played and beat this one yesterday. Easily my favorite VR game I've played next to beat saber. Amazing story, interesting puzzles, and the graphics were pretty darn good as well!

I'm glad someone here appreciates VR games other than me!

I thought the puzzles were just hard enough so you felt smart when you figured it out, but not so hard you had to look them up online.

How long did it take you? Beat it all in one sitting...err...standing?

Explain the ending to me.

Took me about an hour and a half total i would say. My eyes kept hurting so i had to take 5 minute breaks but i kept going back to it because i wanted to know what happened lol.

Yeah the only puzzle i got stuck on was the safe code. I had to look it up but after i realized it should have been easy hahaha.

I dont wanna spoil the ending for others so i'll hangouts u ;)
