One of the games that caught our attention is Sparc, a game that will be made available for the Playstation VR, Oculus Rift Touch and HTC Vive. It is quite an immersive and exhausting game, which is part of its charm.
Sparc Makes You Sweat Profoundly
Although one may not suspect it from looking at the trailer, Sparc is not a game anyone will play while sitting in a chair. Most VR games are designed to play standing up straight and with some room to move around. Sparc is no different in this regard, and it also requires users own a set of controllers, such as the Rift Touch product or the HTC Vive wands.
Once you fire up the game, it will become evident quite quickly this game will get you in shape one way or another. It is an athletic proof-of-concept that aims to illustrate what VR technology is capable of, and what the future may hold. It is evident there is a bright future ahead of VR games.
Although Sparc has yet to be released for all of the aforementioned platforms, it is not hard to see why so many people are excited about the game itself. The company behind Sparc is CCP Games, who also developed the massively popular Eve online universe.
Moreover, this game proves to be something the VR gaming world has not yet seen so far, as it seems to mix tennis with a strange form of dodgeball. Full-body movement games will become more popular in the VR sector, that much is evident.
It is also worth mentioning Sparc will feature a pro mode, where players will need to strategize and coordinate their movements accordingly. Moreover, there will be some dodging involved, making this a game you will only want to play in a space where you can move around freely. Without enough space to fully experience Sparc, the experience will not be as engaging as it can – and should – be.
