Damn Lone Echo is good. You hear a lot about VR and immersion and sense of scale, but after the typical wow moments of the first VR games, I was going to say the effect is diminished once you get accustomed to VR. But this game proves it’s all about the execution.
The moment you get out of the space station and see Saturn and all around you… holy shit. And it’s so cooI to ride a Fury and travel around space (I hope everyone says wee! when the main impulse hits), and later moving around big satellites. And of course, the huge spaceship that looks like it’s >2kms long is awesome.
The game also shows how VR can boost the immersion and character empathy, with the character of Olivia. It makes her more alive, you start reacting to her like a real person. Although that said, it’s really a synergistic effect, VR combined with several other factors: good graphics, good body and facial animations, good voice action, natural dialogue. Having something in VR alone isn’t enough.
