Gorilla Tag is a free multiplayer VR game developed by LemmingVR who is a YouTuber. The game was created in Unity and is compatible with most PC-compatible virtual reality headsets as well as Meta Quest, designed to allow for cross-platform play with both SteamVR and VR headsets.
Gorilla Tag is a VR game in which players must tag each other in a basic, primal tagging game. This game is easy to learn and play, but it provides a fun and interactive multiplayer VR experience.
Gorilla Tag: Gameplay Overview
There are only 2 actual game modes in Gorilla Tag: Infection and Hunt. In the Infection game, a Lava Monkey will chase the other players, who will become Lava Monkeys once tagged; the game ends when everyone is caught. In the Hunt game mode, you catch a specific player while another catches you; once caught, you transform into an Ice Monkey where you will have a slower movement speed.
There are 5 major environments in the game: forest, city, canyon, cave, and mountain. Each map has unique characteristics that will challenge you to master various movement mechanics. Forest is about climbing, City has an obstacle course, Canyon favors wall-running, Cave is located beneath the Forest, and Mountain includes slides.
