Mobile VR Jam Noctica– It took me a while to figure out what I needed to do in Noctica, but most likely because it was my 20th title after 19 submissions that either wouldn’t load or were broken in some way or another. I love the experience created here. It feels a bit like The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe book where instead of a closet, you enter a door to a completely new bizarre realm.
Each area has music that seems to almost interact with the environment around. The style is minimalist yet completely sucks you in. It’s an experience, so there is no end goal, but just wandering around is reward in itself. There are funny little creatures spread throughout the lands. They do nothing more than things like waving at you and shouting “Hello!”. I got quite the chuckle out of one of them who did that.
The key part here is the developer did a great job of truly transporting you to another place that you would never experience in the real world, and not once do you notice it is a piece of software you are playing. This is definitely worth a check.
