Locomotion in virtual reality has always been a tricky, mixed endeavour. Over the years methods have evolved from fixed point-to-point teleportation to swinging your arms and even grappling hooks. The ideas that tend to work the best for a broad range of players are the ones that apply some physical movement to trick the brain. Gorilla Tag did this by simply allowing you to push off the virtual ground with your hands. Outta Hand, the latest title from Capricia Productions takes this theory a step further. As we find in our Quest 2 review, Outta Hand gets seriously handsy – in the right kind of way.
Outta Hand is an interesting looking VR platformer. Announced for Meta Quest 2 and Meta Quest Pro this summer, the game looks set to take Gorilla Tag‘s infamous movement mechanics to new heights. Literally. Vertical platforming is the order of the day, as the Outta Hand release date has been set for later this month.
