Hii

I bought boneworks game through my pc oculus app store, and I have problems playing it on my oculus device.

how can I install the game only on the quest device without connecting it to PC?

Is the PC required to run the game?

Yes it's a PC game....if you want to use the Quest you have to link it to PC.

How to check if a game that is in the oculus store is a pc game?

Becuase I am only looking for games that is usable with vr device only.

There are 3 different Oculus stores: Rift, Quest and Go. Each sells games specific to that platform. (Technically it's 4 stores, but GearVR is actually the same as Go)

The Rift store is PC only.

 

If you go to the web store, you can select which platform from a combo box on the left near the top.

 

In the mobile app, you select the platform at the top of the screen.

 

While wearing the headset, it's slightly trickier...

Wearing a Go, you only see the Go store.

Wearing a Rift, you only see the Rift PC store.

Wearing a Quest while running standalone, you only see the Quest store.

Wearing a Quest while using Airlink (wifi) or Link (usb) you only see the Rift PC store. This is because Airlink/Link effectively (temporarily) turn your Quest into a Rift, using its store and library.

 

So if you make sure you are using the Quest store (don't access the in-vr headset store while connected to a PC), then only stand alone Quest games will be listed.
