July 2, 2022

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

Wands Alliances
Wands Alliances is a new 3-on-3 spiritual successor to the 1-on-1 magic dueling game Wands. The tactical nature of the original game hasn’t changed. You still move by teleporting to specific points on a map, and with many unlockable spells to choose from, you need to consider your loadout carefully as you can only take a handful of them with you online. But by shifting to a team-based style of play, Wands Alliances makes you think about how your loadouts and character class abilities will complement those of your teammates as you battle within the streets of Victorian London.

Perfect For: Fans of Wands, Blaston, and The Wizards
Developer: Cortopia Studios
Available On: Quest 2

The American Dream
Samurai Punk presents The American Dream, a satirical virtual reality trip to a ‘brighter future’ where your everyday needs are solved with guns. It's the 1950’s and a group of leading gun manufacturers have constructed a vast complex to guide the American Patriot towards a better and richer life. With the talking dog Buddy Washington as your guide, you'll get to experience what it's like to live all aspects of your life with guns. Journey through the life of an Average American Patriot as we teach you how guns can help you through those key moments in life.
