This week also marks the Oculus Store launch of a handful of VR minigames, including developer Tricol’s basketball sim Free Throw Bomber and the free multiplayer card game Casino VR Poker.
Ninja Whale Studios’ Mount Wingsuit, now available via the Oculus Store, simulates a high-altitude wingsuit diving session via a first-person perspective. Players compete for the best times in 40 included challenges, including slalom courses and competitions focused on finding the best midair travel lines.
Mount Wingsuit also includes a Survival mode for experts, while casual players may want to opt for an alternate, exploration-driven mode that allows for free flight across all of the game’s included mountain settings. Mount Wingsuit is priced at $15.
Also premiering this week is Space Jones VR, a shooter that puts players in control of an intergalactic battleship. Previously released via Steam, Space Jones VR confronts players with waves of invading space pirates who must be taken out before they can reach a treasure chest at the center of the playfield. Space Jones VR is up for grabs at $10 via the Oculus Store.
Other games making their Oculus Store debut this week include the arcade-style basketball sim Free Throw Bomber, free-to-play gambling sim Casino VR Poker, and Heroes of the Seven Seas, a high-seas pirate sim featuring ship-upgrading and ocean-navigating mechanics.
The Oculus Store also hosts several interactive non-gaming experiences this week, including Ctrl, which its creators describe as “a compelling drama which follows the story of a young gamer embroiled in an e-sports competition in the midst of a war at home.”
Other releases for the Oculus Store this week include the live event viewer Voke VR, digital comic book Magnetique 01, “virtual reality docudrama” Diggers, and Specular Theory, which offers “award-winning VR content including music and entertainment, originals, and other fun experiments.”
Featured Oculus Store games are compatible with Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR headsets.
