Yee-haw! Saddle up with Hopalong: The Badlands

Yee-haw! Saddle up with Hopalong: The Badlands   If you’ve ever played at being a cowboy or pretended a broom was a horse (Wait, just us?) then you’ll be right at home in the wild, weird west of Hopalong: The Badlands. With Hopalong now available as part of Viveport Subscription, we talked to (appropriately enough) Texas-based developers From the Future about their rootin’ tootin’ shootin’ VR experience.     Well howdy there, partner. What’s yer name and what brings you to these parts… or

Front Defense Heroes

Viveport Review: Front Defense Heroes   Fantahorn Studio’s first-person shooter gets the multiplayer treatment.     By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content     I was a huge fan of Fantahorn’s original FPS, Front Defense. While the original is a wave-based defense simulation, Front Defense Heroes takes away the barriers of a fixed position and opens up the game world for the player to explore as they face off against other players in real-time. It’s a unique concept, and one of only a few F

Viveport Review: #SelfieTennis   VRUnicorns’ unique take on tennis is addicting and fun.     By Joshua Hawkins, Greenlit Content     #SelfieTennis takes everything you think you know about sports in virtual reality and turns it on its head. The game does this by dropping the preconceived notion of high scores and competitive gameplay to bring you a fun and addicting environment where your most challenging opponent is yourself.   The basic premise probably sounds silly when I break it
