Genres: Interactive Story, Adventure

Loading Human is an episodic, VR adventure game that blends a deep story, interactivity, and physical gameplay within a compelling sci-fi universe set in the 22nd century.

Chapter One is the foundation. You are Prometheus. Your dying father – a genius scientist – summons you to his antarctic science lab with a grave request: travel deep into unknown space and retrieve the Quintessence – the most powerful source of energy in the universe. At stake is his life.

Built for PlayStation VR and Oculus Rift, the game immerses players in a lush, virtual world, where physical interaction using two controllers is core to both gameplay and exploration. You can pick up books and read them or operate various tools with your own hands. You can even use a fully functional record player to set the mood for your love interest, Alice, a lab technician with whom you’ll experience a genuine emotional bond.

Loading Human is an interesting experiment that looks to explore relationships through VR. However in Chapter One these feel rushed instead of being built at a steadier pace. The price point may also be off putting, as a £30 game that lasts 3 to 4 hours, that is only the first part of a trilogy. Untold Games have crafted a VR world that looks fantastic for the most part but it is populated by characters that come across as two dimensional, and a story that might be better enjoyed once all the chapters have been released.

Loading Human have some nice ideas tampered by an awful control scheme, horrible visuals and a lasting appeal shorter than it should due its price.

The story, albeit short, is solid enough to keep you interested, but clunky controls that make completing even simple tasks feel like a pain causes Loading Human to be a frustrating experience overall.

Overly fiddly controls combined with a brief duration, slow starting narrative and inflated price point make Loading Human's opening episode difficult to recommend, which is a shame given the sizeable ambition that lurks behind its otherwise subpar execution.
