Beat Saber

We all know you have the force within you, but do you have the beat? This title brings a whole new vision for games revolving around beating up music that's flying at you. Not only do you have to punch the notes, but each box has a specified direction your hit is supposed to land. This adds a level of difficulty that is sure to break a sweat and get your blood pumping. Currently, this title is available on Steam for Early Access and set to release on May 1st. That means in no time at all you can be swinging your own sabers to the beat of your own drum!

What a day to go back in time. In PIxel Ripped 1989 you'll feel the nostalgia through your bones of what it was like to be a kid again. Jump back into the pixels and defeat the big bosses a few more times, just make sure your teacher doesn't catch you on your game! The way I see it, if you're going to travel through time you might as well do it in style.

Carly & the Reaperman: Escape from the Underworld

When you think of a helpful hand in the sky you probably aren't imagining a Reaper there to help you. But, when that sky is actually in the underworld it makes a bit more sense. Here, two friends must work together to control this unlikely duo by solving puzzles and defeating problems to escape. One person controls Carly, a small girl lost in the underworld, and the other controls the reaper who is a surprising help in preventing death. Carly is played with a controller through the screen, much like a usual platform game. The reaperman is played through your Oculus Headset. So, grab a friend and trade places during gameplay with this amazing title! Steam mentions the game being available to play in June, but you can select the "follow" button on Oculus for release updates!
