In ‘Winds & Leaves’ VR Game, You are a Forester Bringing Barren Landscapes Back to Life
Winds & Leaves is a virtual reality game where you explore a mystical land and discover ancient secrets by reading the signs of nature and planting forests.
Some virtual reality experiences are actually meditative and are perfect for relaxing. They enable you to switch off and immerse yourself into a completely different world where you can pursue simple pleasures in a calm virtual environment.
The virtual reality game Winds & Leaves which came out for PlayStation VR in the summer will soon be available on Steam and builds on this meditative effect of virtual reality. The console version of the game had bugs and the usual technical defects that you’d expect with outdated virtual reality headsets. With the PC VR launch, the game now promises a fun and exciting experience.
Winds & Leaves is a Meditative Gaming Experience
In Wind & Leaves, you will be waking up to a barren steppe which you have to rejuvenate and bring back to life bit by bit. Gifted with the ancient part of planting, you cheerfully set work, collecting seeds, poking holes in the dry soil, and planting seeds.
A magical artifact helps speed up the flow of time so you can watch the trees grow and the green quickly takes hold in an erstwhile barren landscape. Thanks to a flowing day-night cycle in the game, you will be seeing the sun and moon rise and set in the game.
Later, you will have to climb trees and collect fruits so as to acquire new seeds. Players who discover and revive ancient sanctuaries will gain access to new seeds and equipment as outside the traditional area, the climate is more challenging and the soil less yielding.
Only those who understand the weather conditions and biomes will understand the right type of seeds to plant here. The goal is to transform this steppe into lush forests and prevent the next cataclysm that devastated nature before.
PC VR Version Features Many Graphics Improvements
