Torn is a dark science-fiction mystery built for VR. Deep in a forgotten forest, video blogger Katherine Patterson discovers an abandoned mansion, littered with strange machines and disturbing experiments. This is the home of the famed Dr. Lawrence Talbot, who went missing more than 64 years ago. This could be the story of Patterson’s career, worth millions… But when she meets Dr. Talbot in person -- still alive, trapped in another dimension, and missing his body -- Patterson realizes she was wrong. This is the story of a lifetime. Torn opens as a narrative puzzle game as you help Talbot reactivate the mysterious machines that bring his mansion to life. Then it evolves into a dark, character-driven story as you slowly uncover the truth about Talbot, and the new dimension he calls “The Parallel.” Remember everything you see, for in Talbot’s world, truth is nothing more than the invention of the mind. The Mansion - Teeming with the puzzles and machinations of a mad, disembodied physicist, Talbot’s mansion is a sandbox VR tourist destination built for fans of classic science fiction like The Twilight Zone and Black Mirror. Spectacular Acts of Vandalism - Use Dr. Talbot’s gravity tool to fling pianos with the flick of a wrist. Build giant towers of objects and bring them crashing down in grand fashion. Cinematic VR - Written by Neill Glancy (Stranglehold) and Susan O’Connor (Tomb Raider, BioShock). Original orchestral score composed by Garry Schyman (BioShock, Middle Earth: Shadow of War).

A walking simulator set in a colourful, rather than spooky, mansion with rewarding puzzles, a cheerful atmosphere, and a locomotion system from the seventh circle of Hell.

Torn is one of the better puzzlers in gaming. Full stop. There's a growing number of games on virtual reality platforms that gamers without an HMD are missing out on and this is certainly one of them. Do not miss this one if you have the means to play.

Slowly working your way through Torn's mansion setting while gradually uncovering the strange plot makes for an immersive experience.

7.5 / 10.0

Torn is yet another great VR title which I’d strongly recommend you check out if you have the hardware. Sure, it has flaws such as the lack of subtitles, slow-paced movement with no smooth turning, no ability to adjust your in-game height, and repetitive puzzles, but the overall experience trumps most of those complaints once you get sucked into its world. I really enjoyed the puzzles, even though the vast majority of them are pretty much the same puzzle repeated in different rooms, Torn has a strong core mechanic and the developers chose to focus on that as their key aspect.
