Unearthing Mars VR is an extremely straightforward, extremely short adventure game, which is told in 10 parts and actually only appeals to players who are not averse to Mars. A few acts are great and atmospheric, most very mediocre and a few a joke. If it were not VR, there would simply be no reason to buy. Average through and through in gameplay, presentation, story and sound, but a thumbs down would be inappropriate, as the game doesn't allow any blunders and won't annoy anyone per se (at most maybe the price). I had finished the game in 116 minutes, so I could have refunded it to Steam. I didn't do that, but would like to recommend all other curious people to wait for a SALE and then take a look.
