Lucky's Tale

Lucky’s Tale is the closest thing to Super Mario in virtual reality today. It's a masterclass on how to sprinkle the VR fairy dust on traditional game genres (in this case, platforms) and make it work. Every creature, tree and building is adorable from every angle, making the world a multicolored joy to race through, with miniaturised diorama sections begging to be printed in 3D.
