A VR game that will keep you entertained for days. This is probably one of the most well-developed games for the Oculus Quest, with a spectacular Sci-Fi futuristic theme. Everything from the landscapes to every tool you need in this game to succeed is very detailed and the sound quality is also impressive. Red Matter was developed from Vertical Robot and has become one of the most popular titles on the Oculus platform. With glaring reviews from most VR sites online, it's no wonder this title has gained so much traction in the VR gaming industry.
Red Matter Game Plot
Imagine if the cold war with Russia never ended. Red Matter is a glimpse into what the future could have looked like if the Sovjet Union was still one of the world's superpowers. Only this time, the war is set on an entirely different planet. You are agent epsilon, sent to an abandoned Volgravian base on one of Saturn's moons, Rhea.
Here, your mission is to uncover the secrets behind this base and solve intricate puzzles to be able to stop the Red Army from taking over. The plot is quite intricate with many shifts and turns along the way. As you go deeper into the game you will uncover many of your enemy's secrets, so be aware of backlashes and enemy attacks.
Compatible devices for Red Matter
You can find this game on most gaming platforms online like Oculus and Steam. It's also available on Playstation VR. The game is perfect for those who want to use a standalone headset and experience a game with great storytelling and good quality graphics. For those who plan on playing the game on a computer, the specs aren't daunting either. You could easily run this game with:
So basically a computer you can get for $5-600 is more than good enough to run Red Matter. But, you could splurge on an Intel Core i5 processor to get the best game rendering and also have the ability to run other tasks while playing the game.
Final Thoughts on Red Matter
You can easily get lost in this game. Space and time disappear after a few minutes and you feel like you are on a real mission. But the further in you go in this story, it does become a bit too far-fetched. So you need to put all logic aside and just go with the flow.
Puzzle games like this are perfect for VR, as you are completely immersed in the movements in the game and, not just moving a joystick and pushing a few buttons on your keyboard to move around. Without VR, this game would probably not be as popular as a regular computer game.
