In-game audio recording was disabled by the developer, likely due to privacy reasons. For that reason, I didn’t record in-game audio. While I could have made it work, I respected their decision not to include it.

The Wizards – for the Oculus Quest – First Level Game-Play (NEW)
In this video, we’ll go through the first level of ‘The Wizards’. A new Oculus Quest game that was released on June 6th 2019. It goes without saying, it looks SO MUCH better in VR than on a 2D display. I hope you enjoy it!
My opinion (6/6/2019):
I played through the 1st and part of the 2nd level and it gets pretty tough. I haven’t quite mastered the spells and sometimes I forget (or it doesn’t recognize) which spell I’m trying to use (but it’s likely me). The graphics look quite good on the Quest and the Narrator is a hoot. This version allows you to move by teleporting only or smooth movement using the stick or teleport – I like that! Sometimes the edges of the screen have a fade effect that I’m not particularly fond of, but others may not mind. I’m new to VR in-general and therefore can’t compare this to any other platforms/versions. You be the judge! This is a game I will be playing, it is definitely fun and the depth seems to be there but I’m not far-along enough to be sure. I’ve only had about 1 hour to play & record what you’re seeing.
Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. I plan to create more videos like this in the future on the day of release, if folks enjoy them. This way you can see what it’s like before you consider buying. Please like/subscribe if you want, always happy to see folks tuning-in. Your support is always appreciated!
