Charm Games: FORM Reveal Trailer
FORM was an enjoyable and mildly challenging romp through some beautifully crafted spaces populated with puzzles that achieved a nice balance between being interesting without being either too easy or frustratingly difficult. Sadly, I was ready for more than it had to give.
Despite the fact that it is incredibly short, Form is one of those games that must be played by any aficionado of virtual reality. Through smart design and a superlative look, this it is one of those titles that can really show off how the medium can surpass gaming on a monitor. It's immersive, engaging and beautiful, setting a new standard for virtual reality and visual design.
FORM is a really interesting title, because at a glance, it looks like the sort of game that has frequently frustrated me when it comes to virtual reality. It is short, it is a relatively on-rails and it relies heavily on puzzles and little else to advance the narrative. And yet, there is something undeniably fascinating about how FORM comes together, making it one of the more memorable VR titles I have played to date.
