On June 21, Steam’s hotly anticipated two week Summer Sale unveiled. This year’s sale is exciting in that, among hundreds of great deals, a number of VR gamers are also taking part in the fun. Here’s three of the hottest virtual reality games featured in the sale.
3. Space Pirate Trainer (50% off)
Space Pirate Trainer, while a pioneer of the VR gaming genre, remains one of the best virtual reality games on the market. Space Pirate Trainer is the virtual reality evolution of the classic arcade hoard fighting genre. Players are given a vast arsenal of tools and weapons, and are tasked with fighting off hoards of drones as they dodge and defend against incoming attacks.
One aspect of Space Pirate Trainer that makes it stand out is its content. With numerous game modes and a big replayability factor, gamers can spend countless hours on Space Pirate Trainer, something that cannot be said about most games in the VR niche. At 50% off throughout the course of the Summer Sale, Space Pirate Trainer will only cost gamers US$7.49 until July 5th. There’s no reason not to give it a shot if you haven’t already.
2. Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality (50% off)
For Rick and Morty fans, Virtual Rick-Ality is a must have VR title. Building off of the successful Job Simulator model, players enter the Rick and Morty universe as a clone of Morty, and work to complete puzzles and missions in Rick’s garage, the Smith Household, and the Rick and Morty universe. The game completely embodies the grotesque nature and antics of the popular cartoon series.
Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality is a pioneer in taking the niche of TV and movie spin off games into the full body virtual reality experience. Players can interact as Morty with a Rick in an environment previously impossible. The 50% off sale takes the price down tremendously from $29.99 to $14.99. For Rick and Morty fans among the VR gaming community- now is the best time to buy.
1. SUPERHOT VR (30% off)
SUPERHOT VR is, without a doubt, the single game that every Virtual Reality system owner should own. The VR FPS puzzler is beautiful, sleek, challenging, and above all, ridiculously fun. In SUPERHOT VR, players work through a series of levels in which players make their wave through different scenes of battles with enemies. The main premise behind the game is both unique and exciting: time only moves when you do.
As a result, players must use their movements very wisely in dodging the incoming bullets and swings from enemies as they punch, slash, and shoot their way through each level. Initially, fans were skeptical of the VR port of SUPERHOT and the compatibility of the gameplay with VR in general. However, SUPERHOT VR is done so well that players very well may find themselves unable to entertain the non-VR original after getting a taste of this virtual reality master piece. At 30% off, this award winning title is just US$18.74 throughout the course of summer sale.
