The VR Game Launch Roundup: Dolls, Bows & Cosmonauts

It seems that recently, virtual reality (VR) titles have either been sporadically launching or simply dropping last minute, which has meant this is VRFocus‘ first roundup of upcoming videogames this month. As usual, here are five new VR experiences you may not want to miss.

A Wake Inn – VR Bros

First up is horror title A Wake Inn by Polish team VR Bros. Set in the creepy Silver Inn Hotel, you wake to find yourself in the body of a mechanical doll. Unable to walk you have to explore the hotel in a wheelchair, searching the rooms for clues and useful items whilst trying to avoid the very deadly residents – the dolls.
