Virtual reality is proving to be an incredible outlet for the artistically talented people out there, and Oculus Medium is another title in a growing collection of apps that cater to these individuals. Instead of just being able to paint a 3D picture, you can use a wide set of tools to sculpt creations out of thin air.

The Touch controllers allow for natural hand movements, making it easy to get things exactly right, just as if you were modeling a block of clay in real life. When you've finished your model, you can export it for 3D printing or for use in a game engine. Whether you're a casual artist or an experienced professional, Medium offers something you'll love.

First thing I learned is that I'm not a sculptor, but I'll keep trying!

While Medium is more geared for sculpting creations out of thin air, Quill is designed for creating illustrations on an infinite canvas. It was originally used to create a short film called Dear Angelica, and now it's available for any aspiring artists out there.

Your canvas can be scaled up and down as much as you want, so you can create an incredibly detailed drawing before shrinking it down and creating something larger around it. The tools available are easy to use thanks to the Touch controllers — pros and casual artists alike will be able to put their imagination onto a canvas with Quill.

My little niece loves this, and it's cute seeing her with the headset on, talking to herself and Ooohing and Ahhing as she draws.

For any shooter fans out there, Robo Recall is the first free Touch title you should download. You're a recall agent sent out into your city to disable as many rogue robots as possible using your pistols, shotguns, rifles, and bare hands.

 

First there were novels, then there were graphics novels, and now there are interactive graphic novels. As you page through this interesting story, you'll be increasingly sucked in to the point where you're using your Touch controllers to find secrets on the pages, to defend yourself against attacks, and to go on the offensive to save the protagonist.

When you first step into Rec Room, you find yourself in a dormitory full of toys and a wardrobe. Once you've picked out your hairstyle, skin color, and clothes, you can head out into the main lobby where a bunch of other real players are conversing. Here you can make some friends, get some advice and tips, and finally head into one of the activities available, including disc golf, paintball, dodgeball, charades, and more. I imagine making a flightsim lobby and simmers stopping by to meet and shoot the breeze.

 

Dead and Buried is the free Touch game all fans of spaghetti westerns will love. Set in the Wild West, you and a couple partners — matchmaking is easy — must use your six-shooters, dynamite, and whatever else is lying around to fend off waves of enemies.

First Contact is Oculus’ introduction for new Touch owners, similar in scope to Oculus Dreamdeck for the Rift itself. It’s a short demo-like experience that immediately follows the controller configuration and tutorial. In it, you’ll find yourself in a retro-future setting in the presence a friendly robot.

 

The Unspoken, is a magical dueling game that pits Touch users against each other in 1 on 1 combat. With several magical classes to chose from, you’ll use buttons and gestures to cast spells to combat your opponent.
