This week, we released several titles and updates across the Oculus Platform. Here’s a rundown of the highlights:
This fun shout-em-up game is now available in VR! Assemble a team of up to six space cadets and work together communicating and completing increasingly complex instructions. Keep your ship hurtling through space, despite the constant threat of annihilation, with swift-witted deployment of your essential space tools.
Waltz of the Wizard Hand Tracking Update
This magical game adds a hand tracking update to Quest! Now Waltz of the Wizard gives you a sense of truly wielding magical powers with your own bare hands. Snap your fingers to make objects in your line-of-sight explode, pour giant potions over your hands to enlarge your fingers, interact with a shape-precise water surface or make googly-eyes appear on your hands with hand-puppet poses!
War Remains: Dan Carlin Presents An Immersive Memory
This is not a game. This is history. Presented by Hardcore History® legendary podcaster Dan Carlin, War Remains is an immersive VR experience that transports viewers into the nightmarish hellscape of the Western Front of the First World War. Witness history unfold from a soldier’s point-of-view in this thought-provoking, visceral experience.
Tales from Soda Island
Tales from Soda Island, a new animated series made entirely in VR with Quill, mixes 3D animation, spatial audio, and special effects to create a new kind of sensory playground. The first episode, titled The Multiverse Bakery, is available now.
Perfect For: Fans of Quill, Alex’s Sci-Fi World, and Glowing Blue

Available On: Oculus Quest // Rift Platform

The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets Hand Tracking Update
This heart-warming tale now comes with hand tracking on Quest! Travel back to the imaginative adventures of your childhood and go through the story by solving fun puzzles. Use your hands to grip, push, drop, and spin the numerous interactive elements while enjoying the joyful, whimsical world and cute animals.
You are the clueless apprentice to an awkward sorceress. She needs your very human hands to operate her contraptions, and everything’s just a little... unexpected. By the end, magic has a less-than-desirable impact on the anatomy of your fingers, and it’s nobody’s fault but your own.
Visit the Oculus Store on Oculus Quest, the Rift Platform, and Oculus Go for even more immersive content and some weekend flash sales. We just celebrated the first anniversary of Quest and Rift S, and we’ve got some sweet sales happening until May 25 at 11:59 pm PT. We’ll see you next week for a new batch of releases!
