Lone Echo - VR Game

For the love of everything that's holy, if you have an Oculus Rift, you *must* play Lone Echo.

I never played any game that so much put me into a universe so close to Eclipse Phase.

LINK TO GAMEPLAY VIDEO

The game has:

  • a lone mining station around Saturn
  • resleeving
  • AIs
  • a theme revolving around exploration & science
  • space that actually, really, totally feels like space
  • realistic movement in zero-g
  • AR interfaces
  • an abandoned dig site ...

Later in the game you will also:
(HEAVY SPOILERS AHEAD)

Spoiler: Highlight to view

- find yourself in very suspenseful / claustrophobic moments
- even encounter something that feels like the exsurgent virus
- totally feel like a Firewall agent entering a derelict habitat

Admittedly, the game is not super easy on the stomach, and I had to play it over a number of sessions. However, it is one of the best VR games out there, and by far the most Eclipse Phase-like I ever played!

Here is another review with more general details.

I was really impressed by this game too.

It doesn't have the typical combat focus of modern games, but I got swept up by the feeling of the world. I feel like game developers are feeling their way around VR right now, and most of the games aren't a great fit. This is a good example of a novel storytelling approach that worked really well.

It's a little shorter than a typical game, but I was happy about the length, and was ready for the story to end.

I was watching someone lets play it and it really pains me that i can't play it due to a lack of VR Headset.
