    Strange. That sale started a couple days ago for me. Nothing worthwhile for me.

    Edge Of Nowhere is awesome, particularly if you're a fan of Lovecraft. One of my favourite VR games so far.

    Since I already had In Death and Edge Of Nowhere, that first bundle lets me get Artika for ~$15.  Quite the deal, and I'm thinking that'll be a great game to play for Halloween.

    I love that the bundles work that way;  there's not as much pressure to wait for popular games to go on sale before buying them, because they just end up in bundles sooner or later and then you get the chance to nab related titles at a big discount.

    I'm kind of curious how this system works out in terms of the developers' profits, though? Do they just agree to have their games discounted at a variable rate, or is there some kind of profit-splitting agreement involved, or what?

    That's not a bad thing, compared to the initial release the game has been patched to support Touch and also got about 5 to 7 gigs of high-res textures. All good things come to those who wait   ;)
    Remember to crank up super-sampling, in Edge of Nowhere high levels of ss or not may correspond to being able to read text in documents clearly or not  B)

    To me Edge of Nowhere feels like the best Tomb Raider pancake game multiplied by 10. So yes, it's another 95 % overall VR game and I still have absolutely no idea why Metacritic doesn't agree with me. Seriously.





    I'm forcing ss 2.0, do I sometimes get 45 fps ASW? I don't know, I only remember the game being smooth as silk and the scenery being absolutely mind blowing  B)

    Maybe because when it came out a lot of people had this narrow-minded idea that all VR games have to be first-person and motion-controlled (or they "aren't really VR games"?)
    :tongue:

    I feel bad for the people who foolishly passed up on so many good VR games because of that sentiment.  Hopefully, they'll pick them up now because of these bundles, and finally see what they missed out on.

    That's exactly what I just read on another forum about another VR game third person, Hellblade Senua's sacrifice. Some people are offended it's third person and not a first person with Touch control. I mean they are really angry and say they will never buy this!
    They don't know what they miss...
    And because I'm smarter (hummm hummm) and I know what I missed so far, I also grabbed Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice on sales on Steam right now (sad it's not there as I searched in our store).

    I have never been a fan of 3rd person games, but I picked up Edge of Nowhere ages ago on account of all the good comments on here.

    Haven't played it yet, though - like many of my early purchases. Just means more fun for another day.

    It's really good!

    Edge of nowhere has been my favorite game so far

    Third person games work surprisingly well in VR, Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice is also excellent.

    Edge of Nowhere is still the highest rated Rift game - ever - by RoadToVR, awarding the game a rating of 95%:

    SUMMARY
    "I honestly can't praise this game enough. I absolutely loved it. From the compelling story to the tense gameplay to the beautiful environments, everything came together to make a truly spectacular experience. The developers utilize VR well using the sense of Presence and scale to make the experience feel like an epic and terrifying adventure. This is a well polished, fun, complete (5-6 hour) game. If you own a Rift, can handle intense, scary games, and don’t mind a linear (but well crafted) experience, then you absolutely must pick up Edge of Nowhere."

    But that was an old review from 2016, the current version with Touch support and improved textures is so much better!  ;)

    Official screenshots:











    Note that the game really isn't that scary - it's more like Doom and not like Paranormal Activity...

    Often I think that the best VR games didn't arrive within the last year - they arrived before. Or maybe many of us now have high-end GPUs making it possible to enjoy games from 2016-2017 in all their glory. 

    Edge of Nowhere seems incredibly optimized, even in the presence of utterly giant monsters I get solid 90 fps. Textures are very detailed and sharp. I'm not sure the level of polys is high, but the devs designed the game so you'll generally never notice - but it secures top performance. 

    Did you know that Insomniac Games - the devs behind Edge of Nowhere - currently are making maybe the most wanted upcoming Rift game, namely Stormland?

    Can't play Stormland without having first finished Edge of Nowhere, right?  ;)

    Cannot wait to see what they have done with Stormland, eagerly anticipated from me. These are the folks behind Marvels Spiderman which is insanely good.
