Virtual wood

Plank not included is a simulator firmly within the "single concept" genre of VR games that feel more like a tech demo than a traditional release. The game lasts all of ten minutes with no scores or replayability beyond the (admittedly convincing) plank walking sensation. Players use a VR device to set out a walk-able space, preferably with an actual wooden plank. They must then catch a hummingbird at one end, walk to the other, then catch another. When successful, a new level is loaded at a higher elevation. The general presentation of Plank not included is above average but not spectacular. People walk around the city streets below, cars drive by and the plank looks decent. It is sadly impossible to fall off and plummet to the streets below, however.

Eco-friendly

Plank not included is a short and mildly enjoyable wood simulator. Watching friends attempt the game is almost as fun as actually playing with planks, just without the need for a high-end computer, virtual reality headset and bringing a large piece of wood into your bedroom.
