    Seems interesting enough, not many first person adventure games in VR that are not shooters will keep an eye on this one.

    Looks interesting, reviews on Steam (for PC version) seem generally positive.

    When it comes to FPS fast paced shooter games that have two hand guns or in this case individual "hands" action, the ratings on Steam are meaningless because such games are vastly inferior on a PSVR. Simple reason is because of the PSVR Move controllers lacking a nav stick. We can never experience those immersive "hands" movement action and have comfortable smooth loco at the same time.

    FPS shooter games that support Aim controller are great but then we miss out on the "hands" immersion if the original game was meant to be a single handed type game such as Doom VR and Skyrim VR. PSVR can't ever have both at the same time but Steam VR can.

    Apex Construct is one example that I have played on both systems. Exactly the same game, but horrible to play on PSVR with Moves as soon as battles start to heat up. Raw data and Killing Incursion are other examples being the greatest FPS VR shooters on Steam VR but a much poor experience and lower rating on PSVR, all because of the awkward Move controller adaptation. Doom VR, Skyrim, Borderlands etc all have such compromises.

    PSVR rocks but not with these types of games, so I would always taper expectations on games of this nature. Its just not our beloved PSVR strengths. That's not to say we still can't enjoy these games, as many of you are able to adjust to Move Controllers awkward navigation button mapping, its just that it would not be anywhere enjoyable as on Steam VR.
