Are you a fan of Twin Peaks? If so then you may like Twin Peaks VR by Collider Games. Based on the iconic television series by Mark Frost and David Lynch, this title will allow the player to experience the locations seen in the show. Solve puzzles and discover Easter eggs as you traverse the freaky mindscape seen in the show.
REQUIREMENTS: PLEASE NOT E, THIS GAME REQUIRES A VR HEADSET TO PLAY!
As with many virtual reality games, the technology takes a little getting used to but once you have it down, it really manages to transport you to a place like nothing else can. VR tech isn’t perfect but it serves games like this very well, you simply pop the headset on and see through the eyes of the character and use the controls to pick things up as you investigate; it really lets you feel like you’re part of the world. There is a nice amount of puzzle solving here and, in my humble opinion, we need more of that. The similar game would be Myst. A puzzle adventure game and a little nonsensical.
The ambience of this game is pretty top tier, jumping right into the messed up mind of David Lynch, there are a few scenes that really stand out compared to others. Walking alone in the woods and the first segments in the red room are brilliant, suspenseful and immersive.
Although a lot of the visuals are a little hit and miss, I found that the jank of it all manages to capture you in a charming way, it adds a little to the unsettling uncertainty of it. Some of Lynches visual techniques have been implemented into the game. Some of the sound design can really be great and builds on the atmosphere really well and when the official licensed music comes in, it’s a real blast that tickles your nostalgia.
For all intents and purposes, this game functions more as a highlight reel of Twin Peaks but a tad more immersive.
If you aren’t a fan of the show and have no idea exactly what it is you’re going in for, I can’t properly tell if that will hurt or help the situation but I think it would be best suited for a fan who wants more of that tasty Twin Peaks content with all the Easter eggs, or if you’re a fan of VR, I suppose.
This game is definitely one for fans who are looking for a little more Twin Peaks to experience. It can be difficult to get the tech properly going in some cases but other than that it’s a pretty good game and an enjoyable VR experience; if you’ve got the time then go for it and give it a go.
- Great for Twin Peaks fans
- A fun little investigative VR experience, we need more of those
- Can feel like an amateur demo some of the time
- The experience was a little too short with about a 45 minute run time
