Do you miss experiencing something special in VR? Well, now you can relive that moment with Tea For God.
Void Room, the Polish VR game studio, has just released their long-awaited VR game, Tea for God, which features one of the most interesting and innovative locomotion systems seen in any VR game.
If you are a VR user, especially a more experienced one, you have likely encountered two main VR locomotion systems – smooth locomotion and teleportation. Both systems have their pros and cons, but they fall short in terms of full immersion. In most cases, users are standing in real life while walking in the game, which can break the sense of immersion.
So, what sets Tea For God apart? In this game, you walk using your feet, literally walking in real life. This might sound confusing because you can’t possibly walk through a vast VR world with just room-scale walking, especially if your physical room is small. So How does it work?
That’s where Tea for God truly shines. The game generates rooms based on the shape of your physical play area and creates corridors in a maze-like fashion. This clever design makes you sometimes walk in circles in real life, but you forget about it shortly after, as in the game it seems like you are naturally walking around. This way, you’ll never run out of the play area, and the immersion of walking freely in the VR game will skyrocket.
Besides its immersive and innovative locomotion system, Tea For God is a delightful blend of arcade shooter and rogue-lite experience. The game offers a captivating story and various game modes, allowing you to choose between relaxing, energetic, rogue-lite, or arcade gameplay experiences.
The game also features a hand-tracking mode on Quest, which previously may not have been the best experience compared to using controllers. However, with the recent significant improvements to hand-tracking responsiveness and delay, playing the game using only your hands could now be a much more enjoyable and immersive experience.
Tea For God is available on the Meta Quest Store, Rift, and Steam for the price of $20. If you are unsure about the game, you can try the free demo to experience the unique “impossible spaces” created by the game studio. This will allow you to get a feel for the game and its innovative locomotion system before deciding whether to purchase the full game, which offers many more exciting features and gameplay experiences.
