Unboxed is a virtual reality game focused on overcoming stress through the concept of control and release. Players are given a safe space where they can focus on simple, repetitive actions where they can very physically release stress by smacking the blobs against the walls. The boxes allow for players to find the level of play that is right for them to manage the amount of blobs which allows everyone to enter into a state of flow which that each player discovers for themselves. As players release more control the game reacts to this prompting interesting changes to the environment and sound to promote a freeing, meditative, safe space to release all the stress from everyday life.
New to Virtual Reality? No problem!
This game is an excellent gateway for new players. Whether you are 7 years old or 60, you are able to experience and enjoy the release of control with Unboxed, the game.
We believe that purchasing expensive VR equipment should be enough for a novelty experience like Unboxed. We all should be able to learn how to release our inhabitions and balance our need to control. This is why Unboxed VR will remain free for all releases.
The game will be downloaded as a zip file. Once downloaded, extract the zip file to your desired location. From here, you can launch the game by clicking on the executable.
