Rock and Roots

Rock and Roots is a story-driven adventure where good strategy will be rewarded.

The art is gorgeous, the gameplay is engaging, and this should definitely be on your radar!

Truck Parking Simulator

If you’ve ever wondered what it feels like to drive an 18-wheeler, this is as close as it gets to the real deal—and presents a challenge as well! Driving a large vehicle takes both precision and patience, and this game will test yours as you prep your truck, check your cargo, and set out to make your deliveries.

Arcade is a collection of 6 retro-style games: Galactics, Bricks, Blocks, Invasions, Match and Rocs. Rendered in a charming neon vector style with bouncy soundtracks, this is a retro gem that’ll keep you busy for hours—and as of writing, it’s free to play! Definitely one to check out!

Become a furball with springs for arms and bounce your way back to your spaceship (stolen by a giant octopus)—Stilt is exactly as wacky as it sounds, and that’s why you need to play it!

To quote reviewer, Shadowa.m.: Imagine a game with the graphical aesthetics of Mario 64, with the music of crash bandicoot… the collectibles of banjo-kazooie, and with the bouncing mechanics of…shovel knight.

Basically, it’s a whole bunch of fun, and one of our must-plays this month!

Mezmer is an intriguing app, presenting a new way to experience music in VR. You can access built-in soundtracks, live internet radio stations, or your own audio files stored on your Quest, then enter one of 10 ‘mesmerizing’ spaces that respond dynamically to the music playing—leaving you to drift off into another world.

If you’re a music fan, check this one out!

This significant overhaul is fueled by user feedback, aiming to enhance accessibility and overall gameplay satisfaction. Notable changes include the integration of PC environments into the Quest version, a helpful shape guide for precise placement, and a stress-free ‘Practice Mode’ for strategic planning.
