A small forgotten gem? A. D. 2047 VR (Bladerunner-style simple adventure game)

Grand Champion

I just saw that this game was on the top 20 list of PCVR games with the highest peaks of concurrent players:


Never heard about that interactive Bladerunner-like VR movie experience before, but it is right here - 80 GB and less than 20 bucks:

The actors aren't very good, but I've played tons of adventure games on my Commodore 64, Amiga, PC etc., and I've seen worse, lol - and this is in VR 😍. But they use blurry temporal antialiasing (TAA), so you need extreme res to reduce the blur - this is Index res 500% (and maybe 30 - 45 fps, but no big deal, it's an adventure game or interactive movie):

You start in your own apartment - you can teleport between spots exactly like in Wilson's Heart.

My friendly AI - ChatGPT34 (ok, I made that name up, bad humor, sorry)

The AI before it activates, but nice graphics and a high poly count

You do get to investigate a crime scene, but puzzles are easy - graphics are great


I found that Rift CV1 ss 2.5 was better or similar to Index res 500%, but Rift CV1 ss 2.5 is 27 million pixels per frame while Index res 500% is an utterly massive 45 million pixels per frame (higher than 8k TV res) - so performance with CV1 is much better and the game looks very sharp even with TAA. 


This is Rift CV1 ss 2.5 - the game on Steam supports native Oculus drivers:


City skyline - yes this game is very dark and loves oled 🙂


Faces are exceptionally well-made - but hard to capture, I had to increase brightness a lot here, she looks much better in-game:




Back at a crime scene, where you can choose to Ignore a request or to show an ID Card:



Vistiting a hospital:



Note that female npcs casts dynamic shadows on herself


Devs took these shots:






I don't demand much 😉 - I do love these kind of not too demanding and relaxing adventure games - or maybe more like an interactive movie with some puzzles. 

A. D. 2047 does remind me of the Bladerunner Rift app: Memory Lab, which I'm sure we all have played, right? 😎 🤓

Went back and tried to capture one of the nicest ladies in VR - ok, Olivia in Lone Echo 2 still wins - but this is not bad:

Pretty amazing quality. And here're some more shots - Index res 500% (45 million pixels per frame super-sampling, I need that RTX 5090 sigh!):

See how npcs cast shadows on themselves? See her hands casting a shadows on her dress - we rarely see that in VR games



I think there's nudity in the game too, but haven't found it yet, sadly 😉

Again, not a great VR game, but a fine experience for $20. And for those thinking that RTX 4090 was overkill and getting buyer's remorse, here's the game to change your minds 🤗 😁

I would be interested in an actual gameplay review. Graphics only go so far, and without solid gameplay the graphics tend to become a gimmick. I'm not saying that applies here, but for general recommendations it helps to talk about the actual gameplay experience.

I like the setting of the game. And this one missed my radar. I will check out the Steam user reviews to get an idea of what the gameplay experience is like.

A few more impressions from this very strange game, which looks like AAA quality, but feels very indie-like for the story and low-quality voice acting. I do believe it's an Asian game, which might have great Asian voice actors, but the English voice-over is not very impressive - but it kinda feels like some strange/cheap version of Under A Killing Moon. I'm enjoying the game for what it is. 

Here I'm meeting some tech dude who fixes ... things:





The attention to model details is very impressive:





My coffee machine at home



Awesome wood textures


Got back to my apartment - to find my friendly AI:


The tiny scratches and surface imperfections do increase presence and immersion - and are easily seen even using the Rift CV1 - but I am pushing ss 2.5 (max in the Oculus Tray Tool = 27 million pixels per frame) 


Finally my view at night from the apartment:



The game does have a few puzzles requiring some thought. One puzzle required rotating and positioning several 3D elements, and did remind me somewhat of puzzles in Alyx. There also are a few action scenes, where you need to do the right things in time - or you'll die.

I'm about 70% through the game. Maybe it can be done in a few hours.
