Oculus Touch Launch Titles

Rescuties VR

Here’s your chance to be a superhero. Rescuties VR puts you in a situation where you have to save babies and animals from dangerous situations such as a burning building or a dangerous spot on tree. At one point, you’ll even have to catch corgis or children from a fast moving car or in zero gravity at the International Space Station. You’ll also have power-ups that come in the form of food. You can eat pizza to stop time or consume a cupcake for more points. Just make sure to save as many adorable creatures or humans as possible.

Galaxy Golf

Think of mini-golf on a universal scale, and this is what you get. Obviously, you have to shoot the golf ball into the hole on the other side of the planet or another celestial body entirely. However, the game takes away the golf clubs, so you have to use your hands instead to pick up the ball and set its trajectory. By taking advantage of a planet’s gravitational field, you can manipulate the ball’s trajectory to the hole.

Developer: Liftoff Labs

Genre: Casual, Sports

Stance: Seated, Standing, Roomscale

Viral EX

The E.V.E. supercomputer is infected with enemies, and it’s up to you to purge the system of foes. Viral EX contains 50 levels where you use your gun not just to take out enemies, but to block attacks and navigate through the area. With the Touch controllers, you can wield two guns and pull off exciting gunplay moves in virtual reality. Just make sure that you make it to the next level.

Windlands

If you wanted to zip across buildings like Spider-Man, this is your chance. However, Windlands has more of a calming experience compared to New York City. In this game, you use your grappling hook to traverse multiple platforms that are full of ruins. The primary goal is exploration, as you’re tasked to “discover the secrets of the ancients.” If you’re looking for a tougher challenge, the game will also include a time trial mode so you can compare your level completion times against other players around the world.

Developer: Psytec Games Ltd.

Genre: Exploration

Stance: Seated, Standing

Price: $19.99

Pierhead Arcade

If you’re tired of wasting money on arcade games at your local Gameworks, you can opt for this virtual arcade. With “unlimited tokens” you can try your hand at bowling, skee ball, basketball, or whack-a-mole. Unfortunately, you can’t trade in your virtual tickets for any real-world prizes, but at least you can have an arcade in your living room.

Home Improvisation: Future Sandbox

The idea of a furniture-based sandbox game is strange, to be sure, but the title developed by The Stork Burnt Down also has some humor infused with the experience. You’re free to fill up your virtual home with the game’s catalog of furniture. However, there are no instructions for building each piece, so you’ll have to figure out how to build it (think of a somewhat more frustrating Ikea chair). Of course, you can choose to create your set of contraptions or structure with the parts provided. When you’re done, you can show it off to your friends online, or you can play with up to four players locally so you can all design the post-modern furniture of your dreams.

Fly To Kuma Maker

Fly To Kuma Maker is virtual reality puzzle game that takes advantage of the 6-degrees of freedom (6DoF) movement that Oculus Touch controllers allow. You must protect the Kuma bears and help them reach the goal marker. The Kuma bears can only move forward, and there’s always an obstacle in their path. Use various blocks to build a safe path for the Kuma bears. Fly to Kuma Maker also includes a level creation tool so you can build your own challenges and share them with the world.

Music Inside from Reality Reflection is a virtual reality rhythm game that lets you rock out on a virtual drum kit and enjoy the colorful audio visualizations as you play.

Pulsar Arena

The team behind Proton Pulse Plus is also working on a rhythm game of its own. Pulsar Arena pits you against another player in head-to-head rhythm combat. You have to hit small spheres, called PolyBlocks, in time with the beat of the song to create combos. With each combo, you’ll try to overwhelm your opponent with a flurry of attacks and power-ups. Obviously, the first to lose track of the beat is defeated, so it seems that you’ll have to use quick reflexes as well as your ears to be victorious in the game’s virtual hourglass arena.

    There's also a "launch bundle" available, 5 of the Touch-enabled titles sold together for $90. Which sounds kinda hefty until you notice The Climb alone is $50.

    In addition, they currently throw in Ripcoil for free on any Oculus Store purchase. So that's nice.

    yeah the $90 bundle is a great deal, if you don't already own any of the stuff. Unfortunately for me i already bought the climb at retail

    I'm still waiting on "Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan!" to be put in there. Mixing the great "follow the lines with tempo", plus the additional VR element of moving all over the place cheering inside the story being told in the song, lol. That would be so friggin' awesome.

    Cheers!

    Good lord, I thought perhaps VR game ambition and quality would have evolved of late. Nope. Serious Sam, Superhot (though def not a fan of the artstyle myself), and possibly Arizona Sunshine/Quar look like actual games instead of demos/mobile/freemiumware design looking garbage.
