We’re back with the next entry in Monday Must-Play, our weekly article series that highlights must-play Meta Quest 2 VR games worth checking out. Each week we encourage readers to share their thoughts about the chosen game in our Monday Must-Play Game Club on Facebook as well as across social media platforms like Twitter, Instagram, and others using the #MondayMustPlay hashtag.

Without Further ado, let’s dig into this week’s Monday Must-Play game of the week: The Twilight Zone!

You are about to enter another dimension—one not only of sight and sound, but of mind. It’s as vast as space and as timeless as infinity and this time it exists entirely in virtual reality, ready to be explored. It’s The Twilight Zone!

Chances are you’ve heard some variation of this introductory monologue many times throughout your life as The Twilight Zone is about as iconic and ubiquitous as any TV show can be. There are theme park rides based on the property and millions of people across the planet refer to anything spooky or peculiar as feeling like it’s ‘from’ The Twilight Zone. Now, you can step into that world with a three-part VR adventure like no other.

The first story takes place at a game development studio, embracing some otherworldly meta-narratives about cruelty and exploitation in the workplace; the second story is a post-apocalyptic mystery in a city of ruins; and the final third episode focuses on a science fiction writer that finds himself being held captive on an alien spaceship with no way out.

Fans of Fun Train’s previously published work like The Exorcist: Legion VR and Tarzan VR are sure to find an eerie and unsettling journey worth taking here with The Twilight Zone—that’s why it’s this week’s featured #MondayMustPlay!

The Twilight Zone from developer Pocket Money Games and publisher Fun Train is available now on Quest 2 for $19.99 USD. Don’t forget to join the Meta Must Plays Game Club on Facebook to chat with other VR gamers about the games each week and share your thoughts, screenshots, video clips, and more on social media using the#MondayMustPlay hashtag.
