Google’s Daydream VR headset is fighting for supremacy in its category, which is mobile VR headsets. Regardless of its opponent, one of the main complaints about the Google device is that it lacks a sturdy platform to sustain it. By platform, we mean a big enough collection of apps and games that customers can enjoy. After all, what is the point of buying a VR headset if there’s nothing to do on it?
Google seems to be acknowledging this issue and is coming out with some new games. Many of the titles are recognizable from PC versions which have now been ported over to the Daydream. With a variety of genres now available in VR, users will have quite a bit of entertainment on their hands, without taking the new HBO features into consideration.
Layers of Fear
The horror title has made a name for itself on PC, gaining an impressive following. In the VR version, players can use the controller to interact with objects towards navigating through the haunted house. Along the way, they find clues and try to solve a hidden mystery.
This game is exactly what you might expect it to be. You get to play around with LEGO sets in virtual reality. It literally takes out all the effort and leaves you with the joy of building LEGO stuff. Being available for free makes it even better as you can jump right in and start building.
As the game’s trailer says, you get to play with magic in 1880’s London and experience the time’s architecture and technology while adding a dash of fantasy. In Wands, you can create your own wand and use it to cast spells in 1 v 1 combat against other Daydream wizards such as yourself.
HBO in VR
Daydream now also offers support for HBO’s HBO Now service which allows you to stream live content based on a subscription. When you’re tired of playing games you can kick back and tune in for some HBO quality content.
