Pixel Rift, is an interesting game that currently needs some votes on their Steam Greenlight page. You play as a little girl named Nicola and visit different stages of her life while she plays different video games.

The demo allows you to play one level during 1989. The main menu is interesting as you start off as baby Nicola surrounded by different video games ranging from Atari games up to Nintendo64 games. In the gameboy level, you are send to a classroom setting where you have to balance between beating the gameboy game under your desk and not getting caught by the teacher. This aspect of the game seems to take inspiration from Classroom Aquatic minus the dolphins and test taking. The classroom has different things to interact with and the further you get in the gameboy game causes the game characters to interact with the classroom. The game has some quirky humor and will be a hit for people who are nostalgic about the late 80’s to early 90’s.

Overall the demo, while short shows potential for Pixel Rift. There are some sound and control issues that should be fixed by release but if I had to point out Pixel Rift’s main problem, it is that game doesn’t have much difficulty to itself. Hopefully the game will have increased content and difficulty towards its full release but as it stands now Pixel Rift seems to be more of an interactive VR experience rather than a full VR game.
