Wanderer combines delightful world design with insidious environmental puzzles, to create a top-notch VR experience that should not be missed. With incredible visuals, a mountain of surprises, and a fun AI buddy to tag along on your adventures, Wanderer is a delightful brain teaser of a game.

15 / 20

Behind this collaboration that does not look good, we have here a VR game of quality puzzles that really exploits the concept of time travel and incorporates the (varied) puzzles with consistency.

Wanderer is a true treat and if it does well enough. Oddᗺoy + M-Theory has plans to make a trilogy of games. The game launched with some annoying bugs but the developers have been quick and diligent to respond and provide patches. The version of the game I played ran flawlessly after the patches. Wanderer is available on all VR platforms – PSVR, SteamVR, and Oculus. Check this one out. You won’t regret it.

Wanderer is a good game, brought down by the fluctuating quality of a few minor parts. Whether we're talking about the story, the audiovisual design, or the gameplay, fortunately, it still holds above average thanks to its puzzles, time travel concept, and other great ideas.

I liked Wanderer a lot. It mixes many strengths of other VR games with many ideas of its own. An interesting pastime with challenges as well as action elements.

Wanderer is a cinematic, exciting and fun experience, almost essential for lovers of puzzles and escape rooms. Of course, being only with English dialogues and without subtitles, until that is not solved, the language barrier is very important for the characteristics of the game.

This is one of the best virtual reality games of recent years, almost on a par with Half Life: Alyx. If you have a VR viewer, you can't miss it.

Virtual Reality games need to do a few things for me to captivate my attention. There needs to be immersion in the world, which usually combines visuals and sound into the story, as well as being able to interact with the world around me. The other thing that VR games need to do to hold my attention is to give me that ‘one more thing’ to keep coming back to, albeit a gameplay loop, enthralling environment, or an engrossing story. Wanderer, which launched in January 2022 on PSVR, Steam VR, and as a native Oculus game (which is where I played the game using Steam VR and my Meta Quest 2) checks all of those boxes for me.
