A short runtime paired with a comparatively steep price shouldn’t be enough to keep you away from The Lost Bear. The title’s simple gameplay may not challenge you, but the overwhelming charm of the title should win you over. Between the calming soundtrack, beautiful art direction, and delightfully impressive environmental depth afforded by the platform, The Lost Bear is a cute and worthwhile addition to your VR library.
If nothing else, The Lost Bear provided a clever way to do a 2D game with VR. There’s still some work to be done, as the motion controls need refinement and some of the puzzles are just not very fun. That said, I still found the overall game enjoyable to play. Walnut’s story is worth playing through, and the game’s smart use of VR does benefit it. You should put effort into finding this lost bear, especially when you get an enjoyable puzzle platformer along the way.
The Lost Bear is a middling narrative platformer that can be too vague to really appreciate, and the really awkward motion controls do not do it any favours. If there was a standard, non-VR mode, then maybe this one might have been more tolerable. As is, this adventure fails to engage, and relies too much on its unconventional art style to give the appearance of personality, when really it's a dull Limbo imitator.
