Step into the Vive and use your own two hands to reroute, remix, and redirect water flows to free trapped water bears! Water Bears VR is the next evolution of Water Bears, winner of the 2015 Serious Play Awards “Best in Show” and the 2015 CTR “Editor’s Choice for Excellence in Design.”

Each puzzle starts with sad water bears that are desperately in need of water. Help them by building and rebuilding water flows using an ever-increasing variety of pipes. Walk around the puzzles in real space, viewing them from all sides to get ideas. Manipulate myriad colors, test your spatial reasoning, and make the most of your limited resources. There are dozens of puzzles and an awful lot of thirsty water bears that need your help!

Water Bears VR reviews and comments

Product received for free casual Game of a few hours, riddles are not very complex but it is good to hang out if you have a virtual reality viewer.

Great little puzzle game. I just bought it because it was in a bundle, but it really supprised me. I don`t know why steam does not delete the few negative reviews which are clearly just written by people that were to stupid to realize, that a game that is called "Water Bears VR" is most likely a VR game.

Very sweet Game though I have to say that the Game is absolutely good to play even with my 2x2m that scares some something off I can just recommend it certainly no Game in which you have to do for days what but for a few nice Hours it is absolutely ok and the Graphics is t very loving:)

Cute, cool, nice game. When we see the bunch of game in VR ugly and without idea there is a successful game, as good on the form as on the music, the atmosphere or the gameplay. The puzzles are pleasant, nothing insurmountable but that sometimes requires a little reflection and with a nice stake because the bears are too omprakash!

Excellent, that's the word to qualify this game. The game, being a "sequel" to the mobile game water bears, is simply a game where you have to solve fluid puzzles using pipe. Not very original you will say to me, but where the game comes out of the lot is that it is in VR, and playable with the HTC Vive of course. The game therefore has a basic but innexistent principle in VR and therefore makes it super good! The game is nice to play, pretty, and fun. The recommended play area of 3mx3m is not mandatory at all, personally I have to play on 1.7 mx2m (or something of the kind) and I have (almost) no worries, the game is very playable! The game, what-that a bit pricey (unless compared to other VR games), is excellent, I highly recommend it!

For having been able to test it, having a totally empty room or I put a VR game space of 2.5 x 2 m2 I can say that this game is a small bead of puzzle VR game, maybe even the best. Graphically it is all Mimi is colorful, but it is not ugly for as much on the contrary, the effect of liquids and creatures is sublime. We really feel like we are turning around a big picture to inspect the smallest possibilities to solve the riddle. the gameplay is very easy to take in hand and intuitive, we have a painting on the left hand and with the right hand we take the parts (pipes) necessary to solve the Riddle, we can turn them with the hand as if we had really in hand to put them. In short a little VR jewellery for lovers of puzzle games to solve. Graphics 17/20 gameplay 20/20 lifetime 18/20 soundtrack 15/20 total 17/20
