Fujii-Funktronic Labs

Released Aug 2019 4.2★
A serene, mystical journey that traverses a series of otherworldly, organic landscapes, Fujii is a respite for weary travelers. The experience flows between outdoor exploration and creative gardening, merging aspects of adventure and cultivation into a refreshing, musically enveloping whole.

After emerging from a mystical tree, players venture out to explore three unique and magical biomes. Watering, touching, and interacting in musical ways with plants and creatures throughout each biome restores its lifeforce, and expands the energetic rings of light that hover above. Each biome brings its own biodiversity and plant interactions, eventually leading players to the source of Fujii’s powerful energy well.

Fujii also lets players gather a host of exotic seeds from its varied biomes, which they can bring home to cultivate and customize their own unique, otherworldly garden. By lifting planters out of the ground and sowing seeds in pots of various shapes and sizes, players are able to craft unique, bountiful landscapes for virtual relaxation.

Really artistic. Sometimes perplexing as to where to go / what to do next. I recommend this though.

I dunno, I feel like I expected there to be more of a resource management aspect to this than there ended up being. It’s still beautiful and I recommend playing it, but I think it had missed potential.

There’s a lot of flower growing mechanics, but none of them are fully realized, because you’ll have beaten the game before any of your flowers have even advanced past their first growth stage.

The flowers are fun to mess around with, but after you’ve done so once, you don’t really feel the need to do it again.

If I were in charge of the project, I would have made the progress depend more on your ability to plant and raise flowers, raised the cost of opening doors, and had the player keep flowers happy and level them up faster by playing with them and doing mini challenges.

It’s still pretty, but it reeks of missed potential. Give it a go, you won’t regret it.

Atmospheric gardening, nicely done! This app aims at creating an organic environment, but it sticks too much with traditional game mechanics – touch’n click or teleporting is not so natural. If you like to collect cute stuff, this is your world! I enjoyed more the non-functional assets of the game: my wonderful arms and hands, stretching flexible trunks and plants, connecting my body to water balloons, floating in the void. Better leave mechanics behind, if you really want to go more organic in VR.

Plus une expérience visuel et sonore qu’un jeu d’aventure, Fujii a ce petit truc qui emerveille le joueur.
Les environnements sont bien travaillés, c’est beau, c’est joli et ça sent la fraicheur. Bref, c’est le genre de jeux qui nous emerveille.
Les énigmes sont malhureusement trop simples et le jeu trop court.
Une petite review de 5 min en vidéo si jamais

★★
The entire point of this game is to roam around 3 realms growing weird looking plants that play musical notes when touched. That is truely everything you do in this game. If you are not completely enthralled by the screenshots in the store you’re not getting anything else.

I was expecting more, some kind of overarching story, you won’t find that here. Like another reviewer mentioned you’ll fully explore all 3 realms before your first plants grow, and when they finish they’ll only be duplicates of what you’ve already seen roaming around.

There’s not enough content here to justify the price when compaired to other story type VR games, it barely has any gameplay elements whatsoever and certainly nothing unique, and finally there are far more impressive looking and thought provoking games than this.

I have to assume the other 5* reviews are either baked or under 8 years old. Sure seems so
