Best Free Steam VR Games For Oculus Touch: Vive And Oculus Users Come Together!

By  | 

In the past months, we’ve seen a flux of ‘in-fighting’ involving some of the Virtual Reality camps. Most notably, between Oculus and Vive users. And, if truth be told, Vive users have been fighting from a position of strength. Partly due to the hardware capabilities of the device, such as HTC Vives handheld motion controllers – along with other reasons.

Now, though, since the release of the handheld Oculus Touch controllers, from the Facebook-owned company, we’ve seen a new phenomenon beginning to occur. Vive and Oculus users are starting to come together!

A Reddit thread posted in the Oculus subreddit, by a Vive owner with the username of max_sil, offers a list of “the best free SteamVR games you can play with Oculus touch!”

Some titles in the list include:

Budget Cuts: (Demo) A VR Stealth Game, developed by Neat Corporation that requires the player to sneak into facilities owned by Trans Corp. A corporation interested in the development of “space-time technology.” Taking the role of a spy. The player must make their way through the levels using throwing knives and other projectiles along the way to quell their enemies. All the while, without leaving a trace.

A free demo for Budget Cuts is available here.

Google Earth VR: The latest major update to Google’s ‘Earth’ project came in the form of Google Earth VR, which gave VR users unprecedented access to the globe. Notably, though, as described in the original Reddit thread, this app isn’t natively supported by the Oculus Rift. However, instructions on launching it on the Rift can be found in the thread.

Accounting VR: Developed by Crows Crows Crows designed with Squanchtendo. On the Surface, the title may come across as a bit dull, but there is a very dark side hidden within the world of accounting. And this game offers you a window into it.

Although not technically a game, this free app is a fun little experience. And, coupled with the entertaining voice acting performances, its certainly worth giving a go. The only thing to remember when approaching it is that “The modern field of Accountancy is a serious and honorable profession. Many human beings have spent their lives toiling over the hard science of numbers. Thousands have died so that we may get to the level of understanding that we have today. Thousands have died.”
