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

DYSCHRONIA: Chronos Alternate
Committing a crime is supposed to be nearly impossible in the sci-fi world of DYSCHRONIA: Chronos Alternate. That makes the high-profile murder at the center of its story all the more mysterious, and you’ll have to use some nifty technology to traverse through dreams and memories to solve it. The game takes place in Astrum Close, a city that uses a special system to monitor the dreams of its inhabitants, quickly expunging any dark thoughts that could lead to crimes. So it comes as a shock when the founder of the city is found dead. You play as Hal Scion, an investigator who can dive into other people’s memories by touching different objects. Exploring the past will be crucial as you collect clues and evidence in the first episode, out now.

Perfect For: Fans of TOKYO CHRONOS, ALTDEUS: Beyond Chronos, and Spice & Wolf VR
Developer: MyDearest Inc.
Available On: Quest 2

Spacefolk City - Talk Like a Pirate Day 2022
Blow me down and shiver me timbers, it finally be ‘ere! To celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day 2022, Spacefolk City announced that its new update is shipshape and ready to set sail. Introducing a new folk species, the pirate fish. Splice the mainbrace and pass out the grog! All hand hoy! Build a Skill Facility to activate their special ability: They’ll dig for treasure and heave up a coffer of Scrap. To complement this, there are new levels with fewer asteroids, so you’ll need to keep these seadogs busy digging up Scrap for your skullduggery. There’s also a new in-game camera for taking pictures of your cities, so it’s far easier to get great dramatic photos of your creations.
