Vive owners-to-be, rejoice! Newly released Vives will feature an included 3-game bundle for your virtual reality gaming pleasure: The Gallery: Call of the Starseed, Zombie Training Simulator, and the old standby Tilt Brush can be played immediately after you set everything up! This bundle will cost a regular buyer $80 on Steam, so this is welcome news for those looking to jump into the bandwagon.
Call of the Starseed, funky name aside, is a polished, puzzle/adventure hybrid that takes full advantage of VR. It’s one of the best introductions to the medium a new player can get – thus its inclusion in this bundle holds no surprise.
Zombie Training Simulator is a tongue-in-cheek “game” that professes to be the world’s foremost tool for zombie apocalypse preparedness. As with many VR titles, the games takes advantage of VR’s innate immersiveness, with the player needing to spin around to keep the advancing cardboard-cutout zombies in view.
Tilt Brush brings out the artist even in people with zero artistic sense, and it does this by enabling the “artist” to see his or her creation from all directions – it’s basically a sculpting program but with brushes.
So there you have it – in this bundle is proof that the marriage of Steam economics and the new VR experience is a match made in heaven. Bundling together games is one thing, but bundling these two tech juggernauts is one of the best things to happen to gaming.
