The Time to Enlist Is Now!In The Red Stare, you become a special agent in 1950s New York City on a stake out. The Reds have infiltrated the city, and you need to stop them before it's too late.
During your stake out you will be observing your neighbours' every move to find out who of them is the communist spy.

From within your apartment you'll be receiving information via your phone and fax machine, finding clues in case files, and taking pictures that you can fax to your handler - proving that your suspicions are right.

It's all about observation and deduction. You’ll have to use a number of different ways to identify people varying from appearances, items that can be found in their rooms, and rules only specific members of the communist ranks follow.

Good luck, agent! The nation depends on you.

The Red Stare reviews and comments

This is Observation! Smoke as much as you can and you can photograph the Wolf! You immediately feel like a Detective or the Like the Emersion has succeeded very well. You can use a Blackboard to leave notes on it, E.g. and of course smoking, like a Vent! I've been waiting for a Detective Game or the like for a long time and this is pretty Close. The Setting in the 1950s is cool, but I wonder where the Camera came from:) Is and the Fax. Were there Faxes at the time? For a free Game, always try it! However, it is imperative to understand English, otherwise the Game will be half as much Fun.

Understanding spoken English is a Prerequisite for this VR Experience. I don't know how many Cigarettes I smoked in the Game (not in real), there were many, because that's really fun. There's Day and Night Change, and tracking down the Spy is based on those Exclusion Puzzles, so requires some logical Thinking. And there are many Successes to overcome. I would have smoked a lot more if I hadn't thrown my Lighter Under the Mattress, luckily it didn't catch Fire ... Graphic: 10 Sound: 10 Immersion: 10 Game Idea: 10 Total Implementation: Smooth 10 And all for Lau! One of the best free Games for VR, I can only recommend.

The Red Stare is another Proof wier quickly you can get lost in virtual Reality. I played it with the Rift and the Setup has to be 100% set up, otherwise there are often Problems picking up Items etc. At First I didn't really know what to do, but it quickly becomes clear that you kind of embody a Detective or Agent, who has to solve various Tasks by Phone and Fax. The Game is free and therefore it deserves a Round of testing, where free is always such a Thing, often you don't give free Games enough time to get to know it. At Red Stare I was curious about how to proceed. Would Be a perfect 5-7 € title for me. I Would be happy if the Developers were to plan more in this Direction, gladly and of course for Payment. Addendum: I have been smoking For a long time, in VR I started again:-)

The Red Stare takes you back to the cold War of the 50s. As an Agent, the Job is to unmask enemy spies and monitor Neighbors. By Phone you get Tips about your Target Person mentioned (unfortunately only English, good Skills are a Prerequisite). Observations and Conclusions must be used to identify the Target Person and gather Evidence. Armed with a Camera, we then set out to Hunt down enemy Agents. In addition, we have a Table for Notes at our disposal. The Game is really well done. You don't notice the Graphics and Gameplay that it's a Free Game. In the small Office there really comes the Feeling that you are about to spy on your Neighbors, so one probably imagined Berlin in the 50s. Unfortunately, it jerks with me with fast Movements, but is probably due to the GTX 970 (recommended 980). Still, it's easy to play. Because it's free, a must have for any Spy fan.
