Wanderer is a VR game, and those range from barely interactive cutscenes to some of the most memorable experiences in the history of video games. And with its ambiguous trailers, it might be hard to determine whether the game is good or not.

So, how does it compare with other VR games?

Wanderer puts you in the shoes of Asher Neumann, a man living in a post-apocalyptic version of the future who, while rummaging through his grandfather’s lost apartment, stumbles upon a device that allows him to travel through time and space.

Though the concept itself is nothing new, the game shines when it comes to using it to build intricate puzzles for you to solve.

Time, Place, and Puzzles

All around the web you’ll find the game marketed as an escape room-like experience. And there’s a good reason for that – each time period you travel to feels like a small escape room with its own theme.

Only imagine being able to drag items from one escape room to another. That is where most of the fun of the game lies. Figuring out how to solve complex puzzles is always immensely satisfying.

Wanderers and Wonders

Wanderer is one of the best-looking VR games. The developers put a lot of care into portraying the many locations you’re going to visit accurately, while still having some fun with designing the more futuristic elements of the game, such as your robot-wristwatch companion, Sam.

The game’s adventurous music score and some really great voice acting perfectly merge with the visuals, creating a very immersive experience.

What About the Action?

Every so often, you’ll encounter arcade-style action sequences that slightly vary the gameplay, but these are few and far between.

For better or worse, Wanderer doesn’t have offer much in terms of adrenaline-pumping action. Although this is not a flaw by any means, it’s something you should keep in mind before picking up the game.

If slow-paced puzzle-solving doesn’t sound like your type of game, the Wanderer is not a game for you.
