September 4, 2021

This week, we released a bunch of titles and updates across the Oculus Platform. Here’s a rundown of the highlights:

Puzzling Places
Part jigsaw puzzle, part model builder, Puzzling Places breaks buildings (and railroad cars and dresses and even entire neighborhoods) up into small pieces for you to quietly reassemble. Start from the outside in, or reconstruct a bit of text and work your way out, or match red to red and green to green. Audio brings the scene to life as you build, and when you’re done you can turn the model over in your hands and admire every tiny detail. It’s one of the most relaxing and satisfying VR games ever.

Perfect For: Fans of Cubism, Shadow Point, and Gadgeteer

Beat Saber - Skrillex Music Pack
Exciting news for electronic music fans: Beat Saber is back with a brand-new music pack featuring none other than Skrillex. The pack comes with eight high-tempo tracks, including his newly released single “Don’t Go” with Justin Bieber and Don Toliver and “Butterflies” with Starrah and Four Tet. It’s one of Beat Saber’s most intense offerings yet. There’s also a new custom environment that resembles a music light show, right in the middle of your living room—it’s sure to have you on your feet and slashing to the beat in both single- and multiplayer modes.

Colibri XR Immersive Art Gallery
Colibri XR Immersive Art Gallery is dedicated to promoting compassion and growing empathy, caring, and kindness through VR art. Listen to the stories told by drawings, soak in the creative energy all around you, explore like children with their crayons, feel the joy of colours, tap into the power of feelings and emotions, fill the space with soul warming creations—experience art with purpose. The gallery is free and in early access. "Estrella. The Gift" is the first release, an illustrated story inspired by the ancient Inca traditions, the mystical world of the Q‘ero shamans from the sacred valley of Peruvian Andes. Two more releases are planned in 2021 as more paintings, music, poems, wisdom quotes will be added.
