The Oculus Quest Neverboard board game app is now available
Surprise! The promising Oculus Quest board game app, Neverboard, is now available.
Surprise developer Evernever Games launched the title as part of this week’s Quest store. It’s a free-to-play experience that lets you download, get started and play any version of Crazy 8s for free with up to three friends. Players use the old Oculus avatar system.
However, other games are available as in-app purchases. Check out the trailer below.
The concept is certainly promising and we’ve seen what VR can do for tabletop experiences with games like Demeo, although Neverboard will live and die by the quality and value of the board games on offer. Games currently available include Four Letter Word, Treasure, and Odd One Out, but there’s what looks like an upcoming trivia game and Evernever also says it’s aimed at other game makers who may think that their games suit the platform well.
The app is an Oculus Quest exclusive, with no plans announced for other headsets at this time. The concept reminds us of Oculus Rooms, the virtual reality social experience that featured Boggle and others, but never made it out of Gear VR and Oculus Go.
