Werewolves Within

This is one of the few VR games that enables cross-platform play, which is especially important given the limited audience of gamers out there who own a headset. Werewolves Within is a VR interpretation of a classic party game usually called Mafia or Werewolf. Five to seven players can gather together around a virtual campfire in the medieval town of Gallowston and play. The game automatically assigns each player one of 11 roles like Drifter, Saint, Villager, Tracker, Gossip, or Werewolf. The idea is to hunt out the werewolf in the allotted time. It’s a game of deception, conversation, and gestures (which come alive via hand controls) that brilliantly transports you to another place and time and ensures no two games will be the same. It’s also a preview of what social VR can become in the future, as the technology evolves and more people make the virtual plunge. [Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR and HTC Vive, $30; ubisoft.com]
