Everest VR has been in development for the past eight months by Soflar Studios. The game is being sold on steam, a game distribution platform for PCs, right now. Everest VR will cost you $25 but is 10% off until August 9. The game promises to bring you an immersive experience to a place that only a handful of people will ever visit. The game has five areas where players can walk around and take in the breathtaking view of Mount Everest. Players can even pick up a few objects and interact with certain parts of the environment, but that's it. There have been many complaints about the depth of the game. For a game selling for $25 at least a few hours of entertainment would be expected, yet many users report finishing the game in less than an hour. The VR experience is great and the atmosphere of the mountain will leave you breathless, just like the real Mount Everest. Yet that is all that the game does. The game is like a great showpiece but also an expensive one as well.

Players who set their expectations past just being able to take in the great visuals of Mount Everest will leave the game disappointed. According to this article by Adi Robsertson on The Verge, Everest VR is just a fancy art piece that people are expecting too much from. Virtual reality puts you inside of the game and immerses you completely, but that is all Virtual Reality can do. It is up to the developers to make the game interesting and engaging. Developers who rely too heavily on VR to be the only core feature of their game will see their game suffer as a result. Everest VR is a great example. The game was developed in 8 months, while most titles require years of development. The game relied too much on VR to carry it to success and its failure to engage shows.
