This VR game takes a classic puzzle experience, tosses in a handy amount of VR magic, and produces an engaging, although short, experience. Flow Weaver builds on one of the most obvious concepts for a puzzler, which is the escape room. Here, players are trapped within the confines of an area and are forced to solve puzzles by using little more than their brains and the objects in the room with them. Now, take away the laws of physics and nature that govern the real world and replace them with fantastic magic abilities to travel through a literal multiverse of options, and you've got the makings of something truly special. You've got the unique fantasy VR experience, Flow Weaver.

Admittedly, Flow Weaver is a "one and done" experience. From the opening moments to the final credits will only take around three hours or so for most gamers. It's also very linear, so there's not much in the way of replay value. On the upside, it's an intriguing and brain bending game from start to finish. Despite being trapped in a single room, shifting into other Flows opens a window to a patchwork of diverse and beautifully rendered realms. The game's story isn't heavy handed but still does a good job of building a satisfying lore that should get players' interests. And best of all, the virtual reality mechanics put players right into the middle of everything, creating a fantasy escape room so immersive, players won't want to leave.
