Incuvo pushed the boundaries of Meta Quest 2 with Green Hell VR yet kept it simple enough for VR newcomers. Green Hell VR was developed with newcomers in mind, seen in its Tourist Mode that allows players to enjoy the entire experience in a simple, immersive way. Indeed, this may be the most attractive opinion for many, as Incuvo worked hard to make this as immersive as possible.
Green Hell has beautiful graphics and plenty of elements that help bring this jungle to life
Wychowaniec jokingly compared the game’s worth to a cheap trip to the Amazon Rainforest, but he’s not far off the mark. Green Hell features stunning graphics and a plethora of aspects that combine to bring this jungle to life, including animals and flora that are unique to this region. It also has dynamic weather and a day-night cycle, both of which are extremely engrossing in VR.
To top it off, the game received new sound effects for increased immersion, which Wychowaniec described as “underappreciated” in the VR industry. Green Hell VR contains 20 hours of core gameplay and a captivating story to ensure it achieves all of its high points, while these noises help bring the rainforest to life.
Green Hell VR includes over 60 gaming components to ensure that this voyage is as entertaining as possible. Because of the company’s VR experience, this ambitious effort goes a long way toward providing another layer of immersion. That’s not to say it wasn’t difficult, but Incuvo’s previous work on Blair Witch, Layers of Fear, and other titles provided it the skills it needed to create a VR game of this caliber.
It has received praise for its immersion, aesthetics, and approach to the genre. The fact that it’s so accessible to newbies while also providing exactly what many veterans need from the medium speaks for itself.
“If you look at player and media opinion, Green Hell VR already gets a lot of accolades as one of the best-looking Meta Quest games so far,” Wychowaniec said of the game’s reception. We’re pleased of it, and in my opinion, Green Hell VR is the best-looking game on Oculus Quest, and the PC version of Green Hell VR will most likely be one of the best-looking games on the PC. It’s amazing to see this work on a computer.”
