Look down at your hands for a second. They’re remarkable appendages that have helped humanity survive and evolve over thousands of years. But have you ever wondered what it’d be like to replace them with baseball bats instead? Well, wonder no more: WHAT THE BAT? is the first VR game brave enough to explore this bold new idea. It has over 100 levels built around the core idea of having wooden bats as your hands. This can range from seemingly mundane tasks like trying to toast bread or brush your teeth to more complex ones like painting or playing basketball with an elephant (just one of several animal pals you’ll have in the game). Experience fully immersive silliness in a first-person experience like no other!

Perfect For: Fans of Trover Saves the Universe, Virtual Virtual Reality, and The American Dream
Developer: Triband

Walkabout Mini Golf – Myst
The Dock. The Library. The Clocktower. The Spaceship. That massive gear embedded in a hilltop. Myst Island is iconic and has captivated players for almost 30 years now—but never quite like this. Walkabout Mini Golf’s new Myst course is a brilliant crossover between two fan favorites. And while Atrus’s famed island has been covered with bright green turf to mark the occasion, the Myst influence here is more than just aesthetic. Walkabout Mini Golf developer Mighty Coconut integrated puzzles into the course, mimicking some of the point-and-click play of the original Myst via mini golf. It’s a unique homage that should make Myst fans feel at home, while also giving Walkabout fans some tricky new twists to master.

Perfect For: Fans of Myst, Golf+, and The Room VR: A Dark Matter
Developer: Mighty Coconut
Available On: Meta Quest Platform
More Info: The Putting Age: ‘Walkabout Mini Golf: Myst’ Out Now on the Meta Quest Platform

Smash Drums – Anniversary Update
For those of you who grew up with the old rock music games of the 2000s, the new Classic Mode in Smash Drums will feel instantly familiar. Notes are propelled down the launcher to the rhythm of the music, and you clear them with the corresponding color-coded drum or cymbal when they line up with the beat line. Classic! Classic Mode is an entirely new game within the game, with a completely different feel—and a greater challenge in the harder difficulties. Get ready to rediscover Smash Drums! The update also adds new songs, bringing the total number of free rock songs to 50.

Perfect For: Fans of Ragnarock, Unplugged: Air Guitar, and Beat Saber
Developer: PotamWorks SAS
