With the 1.17 PC software
update (available now in our public test channel) we’re making it easier to
manage your content library all in one place. Now, you’ll be able to view and
launch all apps that support Rift from your computer or in VR, even if you
acquired them from outside the Oculus Store. We know people sideload apps for a
variety of reasons, so we've included some options to help provide flexibility
and control of what’s displayed. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
We’ll be iterating on Library
functionality and features with future patches. If you’re testing the release,
please share feedback with us via the PTC, and stay tuned for future updates.

@dburn. Seems some games do not work using this method. I cannot get a few to work myself. It generally has something to do with starting the game directly from the exe or sometimes the launch parameters used. But anomaly's exist, like the one you have experienced. Maybe someone has run into that issue and sorted it out, so hope someone can help you out.
