The third music pack for the game is the long-awaited sequel to the game’s original Synthwave Essentials and is headlined by Muse with the first 2 tracks from their synthwave-inspired album, “Simulation Theory,” sitting alongside incredible synthwave classics from FM-84, Gunship, The Midnight, 3FORCE, NINA and Essenger. 

The pack pays tribute to 80s music culture while blending in future influences of EDM, house, and nu-disco, with catchy tunes, unique voices, soaring guitars, and analog synths galore.

Like Always: A Word From The Creative Director:

We have been wanting to make a true audio-visual Synth Riders “experience” for a while now, and I’m incredibly happy with how “Algorithm” turned out, this has opened the doors for us to continue to keep putting music at the foreground of VR!

Playing Synth Riders VR with the Valve Index and a Haptic Suit!
  • Genre: Rhythm, Fitness, Dance
  • Developers : Kluge Interactive, Retrowave VR

Synth Riders coming from Kluge Interactive and Retrowave VR is a combination of dancing and guitar hero, but your energy is crucial. 

In synth riders, you are on a rail, and you have to hit the colours to the corresponding hand as well as just simple hit markers.

There are held notes of which you have to follow the trail to continue earning points and maintaining your combo. Obstacles have to be avoided; otherwise, you will lose your combination and risk not completing the song. 

I like how the markers and maps enable you to get your groove on as they do have a pattern that promotes you to dance. Synth riders is a great fun VR title that is also a workout game allowing you to burn off that fat. 

There is also a beat map editor available for you to create your own tracks if you want to, but also on side quest, you can add custom songs as well.

 If you’re not familiar with side loading and side quest and want to try this game for yourself, it’s effortless to get it all set up.

So I’ve linked a couple of tutorials on how to start sideloading, or you can read the ultimate guide on sidequest. It takes maybe five to ten minutes max to get it all ready.

Some Notable Features…

  • Abstract art style
  • Intense VR Workout
  • Custom Songs support
  • Neon coloured Cyberpunk world
