Sparc (Released August 29th)
To understand this game, think of VR Ring Pong, but in a bit more hardcore way. In this game, two players stand across a corridor each holding a glowing ball. They then throw the glowing balls at each other hoping to hit their opponent’s body to score a mark. The opponent can either dodge the fireball or deflect it using a deflector shield.
The shield, however, depletes after hitting the challenger’s ball. To revive your deflector shield, you will have to throw your ball to our opponent and wait for it to return. The game features multiple play modes including a
one-on-one training mode, a multiplayer mode and a spectator deck for players to watch other matches.
In Sparc, you can customize your future looks. You can change your outfits and even your hairstyles. It is a
fast paced game and requires you to be highly attentive and have a good eye-to-hand coordination.

using the clues presented to them to explore the ground and find their way home.
The Lost Bear (Released August 31st)
Despite the fact that The Lost Bear is a PSVR game, it happens on a 2D platform, where you (the player) are seated back in 3D Diorama as part of the audience to the puppet show. The show adjusts and adapts to what is currently happening in the game.
