Wayward Sky (VR)
Top Critic Average
Developer: Uber Entertainment
Genres: Puzzle, Adventure
Take on the role of Bess, a young co-pilot who must navigate her way through puzzles and perilous pathways to find her father and escape the crumbling airborne fortress.
Guide the action with responsive motion controls and explore the unique environment from both third- and first-person perspectives. Specially crafted visuals and camera “blinks” transport you instantly from Bess’s point to view on board the fortress to high above the scene, looking down like a towering giant.

Wayward Sky is a good example of how well suited VR is for point-and-click style adventures. It uses perspective and gesture-based gameplay to immerse you in a world that is, on its own, a well made and inviting one. Though I’ll most likely forget forget much of its gameplay sooner than later, Wayward Sky’s setting and ambiance will stay with me long after.
Wayward Sky would be a fun game as a "normal" puzzle-'em-up, but the sheer sense of scale and winning use of PlayStation VR elevates it to another level. With a nicely designed sky fortress which is easy to explore and lots of puzzles to solve, this is a great beginners VR game.
