Virtual reality is all about experience, and experience doesn't have to mean fast paced action and adventure. Sometimes you just want to relax and immerse yourself in pretty lights.
A Sleepwalking Simulator
Recreational Dreaming seems to have a clear goal in mind; escapism. There are no bad guys to shoot, no puzzles to solve, no traps to escape. Instead you find yourself in a strange and colourful world full of great sound design and, well, weirdness. Don't try to make sense of what happens in Recreational Dreaming, just go with the flow and relax. Essentially there is nothing to do but explore the weird and wonderful world around you. While the graphics themselves are a bit average, the individual elements are put together in a pleasing way that shows some great design talent. The controls work fine, but then again they're not really tasked with much to do.
Quite possibly the single biggest victory in the design of this game is the sound, which is expertly crafted and draws you in to the odd little world which the developers have created. The graphics are not quite on the same level, but the overall effect works. The price tag feels worth it as, while there's not much game, there's plenty to experience.
