Plugged In Pick, Game: Floor Plan 2

blog top 10-08

If you’re a Nintendo Switch fan or the lucky owner of the latest PlayStation or Xbox consoles, you’re bound to get plenty of “good game” recommendations. But all you virtual-reality gamers out there tend to get short shrift much of the time. And let’s face it, it’s not always that easy to find a game that the whole family can slip on their VR headset for and enjoy with equal measure.

We’ve found one that might help you out. This month’s Plugged In pick is a VR gem called Floor Plan 2.

Now that may sound like some sort of sci-fi adventure. And in an odd puppets-in-a-weird-world way it can feel like that. But it’s also a game packed full of family fun and quirky humor for all. This little game challenges players to solve puzzles and find specific items hidden away in a series of interconnected, but bizarrely distinct, rooms. It’s something of a multiple escape-room adventure … with Muppet-like helpers.

There’s no language here to irk a mom or dad. And the only real sticking point for some will be some “dark magic” that, late in the game, transforms a character into a glaze-eyed giant until some puzzles are solved. If gamers can comfortably deal with that, then this is a VR title that’s both laughingly silly and invigoratingly challenging.

Does that sound like a plan … for you?
