Game on with Daydream at GDC 17

Article's hero media

With Daydream, you can get your game on with a mobile VR headset that's comfortable to wear and a controller that's simple to use. Whether you love to play first-person battles in space, solve complex puzzles, or make real friends in virtual spaces, Daydream has you covered. Here at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco, we just announced more great VR titles joining our gaming lineup on Daydream from top developers.

Ubisoft and some of the original creators of Rabbids are teaming up to bring you Virtual Rabbids. For the first time ever, you’ll be able to communicate and interact directly with the larger-than-life Rabbids embarking on new wacky adventures. This lighthearted game makes full use of the controller to show what Daydream can do, while capturing the humor and antics of the original Rabbids series.

Next we have Beartopia from Spry Fox, who won Standout Indie at the inaugural Google Play Awards in 2016 for their word puzzle game, Alphabear. Beartopia is a fun co-op village game that will bring you together with other players so you can form friendships and build a bustling and prosperous society. It will be Spry Fox’s first foray into VR, and we love indie games like this that push the envelope of what’s possible and bring new ideas to growing platforms. Indies have long been a key pillar of Google Play, and we’re excited to see that continue on Daydream.

Finally, Along Together by Turbo Button is a game about being an imaginary friend. Using the Daydream controller, you’ll help your pal safely navigate treacherous 3D puzzles.
