Spellirium is an Amazing Game, But The Goggles, They Do Nothing

Untold Entertainment's Spellirium, described by the legendary Tim Schafer as "if Loom and Boggle had a baby", is a ridiculously nifty word adventure that I'm proud to say I preordered. It's also completely wasted on the Oculus Rift VR headset.

While I've heard it's pretty cool for games like Team Fortress 2, with a game like Spellirium the Oculus Rift is little more than a vision-encompassing monitor that never leaves your face. I imagine walking around with a 2D image that never changes must be incredibly disorienting. I kinda want to try it.


I'll tell you more about Spellirium later. Just imagine a word game where, in order to shear a sheep, you have to spell out words associated with shearing. It's a word geek's dream. Did I mention it was from the maker of Ponycorn Adventure? Go look at it.
