This may not be the popular view amongst the population, but since its introduction, I’ve pretty much always thought that VR is just a fad and it will go the way of motion controller, leaving behind quite few memorable games. After E3 2018, nevertheless, my stance about the technology has changed radically, and I now see the benefits of being completely immersed into a game. While I played with several VR games during my time at Los Angeles, a couple of them stood out to me as being the very unique by a country mile, and among them is Arca’s Path.
I’ll be honest, going into Arca’so Course, I had zero expectations. I had no clue what the name was around, and honestly, I had never even heard of it before. So when I watched pictures from the game at the show, I was quite skeptical regarding exactly what it would entail. Little did I understand that if I would escape the demo, I’d have experienced one of the most creative and relaxing VR games that I ’ve noticed.
The storyline of Arca’s Course is quite straightforward. You try to guide a woman, is represented with a tiny ball, by way of a mysterious world. The real exciting component is the way the game plays. Instead of using a controller to maneuver, you tilt your head in various directions to maneuver the ball. This, in turn, is supposed to attract a more relaxing experience, and boy does it work.
In the entire version of the game, players will be able to locate collectibles and, once they’re all found, players will have the ability to view how fast they can complete each degree in Time Trial modes, but for the sake of the demo, I didn’t encounter one of these things. In addition to this, the entire version of the game will feature music from the British electronic music producer Raffertie.
Needless to say, easily the most memorable part of the demonstration was the controls. Maybe it was the fact I had the demonstration on the last day of this convention and I was tired, but being able to sit right down, turn off the outside world, and immerse yourself into a brand fresh one was fantastic, which if you think about it, would be the entire point of gambling generally.
I must play the game for around half an hour, but during this time, I was only able to play with the first two levels of the game. Due to this relatively short exposure, I’m uncertain about other aspects of the game. The span is the principal concern for me personally. This is really a game I don’t need to run from content fast, so I expect that in case the length is short, the game gets DLC later on.
All in all, Arca’s Course is easily one of the most creative VR games I’ve ever seen. As a college student with a hectic lifestyle, it’s convinced persuaded me to pick up a PlayStation VR at a certain stage later on, just so that I can come home from school and relax for 2 hours. While other games have enabled me to detach in the world in years past no title has made it and Arca’s Path.
