Simulation 20 July 2017
Developed exclusively for VR headgear, Ultrawings is a simulation game created by Big Planet Games. Gameplay mechanics are not complicated, as the player assumes the role of an ultralight plane pilot and explores a vast open world comprising topographically diverse islands filled with environmental obstacles. Ultrawings offers the player a number of aircraft, varying in terms of their structure and performance – the key to success lies in the proper utilization of particular parameters.

Arcade 16 August 2016
An experimental, three-dimensional platformer offering an abstract, alluring game world. Bound is the third project developed by Plastic - a Polish team popular for a dark adventure game Datura and an artistic logic game Linger in Shadows. Similar to these titles, Bound was created exclusively for PlayStation 4 and it was developed in cooperation with Sony Santa Monica (the God of War series). Although the game is hard to classify, calling it simply a three-dimensional platformer is a relatively accurate description. Special emphasis was placed on puzzle solving, which is done together with other players. When creating the game world, the developers were inspired by works of abstract art from the beginning of the twentieth century - the player observes lively colors contrasting with one another, as well as simple blocks the virtual environments are made of. Additionally, certain elements of the in-game world are generated procedurally. Motion-capture techniques with the participation of Maria Udod (a professional, Russian dancer) were used in creation of character animations for the game.
World War Toons
Action May 2020
A co-op-oriented cartoonish FPS game, set during World War II, developed by Reload Games, a studio founded by former members of Infinity Ward.

The gameplay is similar to many other online FPS games, although there's an emphasis on controlling tanks. There are several character classes available, each using different weapons, but your choice is not binding and you can change your class when you find the right weapon on the battlefield. Despite the WW2 setting, the game is not quite historically accurate and features a large dose of humor. The high-quality visuals have been created utilizing the Unreal Engine 4.
