Boneworks has become one of the most popular titles for VR since the launch in 2020. The game is set in a dystopian city where you can manipulate any object and use it against your enemy and, at the same time brings in familiar tones from games like half Life and DOOM. The Developer Stress Level Zero has gotten great reviews for the gameplay and, it's compatible with any VR headset.
If you're looking for an imaginative first-person game with tons of exciting features and puzzles, Boneworks could be a good fit for you. The game sets in a virtual city where you have the power to control all elements around you. It's sort of like being in the movie Inception where nothing around you is real and can be controlled.
The Coty you step into is called MythOS and is a completely virtual world developed by an AI called Voidmind. Your name is Arthur For, the security director of a company called Monogon. the very same company that developed Voidmind.
Your job is to save the city the AI has hijacked and kill off all the "viruses” set to stop you from completing the mission. You will not only need to kill your enemy but also outsmart them by solving puzzles along the way.
But rest assured, these puzzles are easy for most people to accomplish, even if you don't like these sorts of games and just want to blast your enemy- you'll have plenty of time to do that too!
Compatible Devices for Boneworks
For optimal experience, we do recommend using a headset with a good viewing angle like HTC Vive or valve Index on this game. the Oculus would be too narrow and you don't really experience being fully immersed with the game. A high PPI resolution is also important so you don't get a grainy picture while moving around in this fast-paced action game.
To get the best rendering and don't experience lag, you will need at least 8GB RAM but 16GB is recommended to have room for running more tasks on the computer.
On most headsets, a GTX1060 graphics card would be enough but, for Rift users, 2060 Super is recommended. You will also need a good processor that can clock around 3.3ghz+, so you don't experience a choppy gaming experience.
Final thoughts on Boneworks
An exciting title that really appeals to those who want to experience moving around in a completely virtual environment, being able to control and manipulate all of the objects in the game. Boneworks really shows imagination when it comes to player capabilities in the game but, the puzzles in the game could be too transparent and simple for those who enjoy this type of feature in a game.
But action, graphics, and details are very well planned out by the developers at Stress Level Zero. A developer we will definitely hear more about in the future on VR gaming.
