Ilysia is a Kickstarter story with a happy end. The studio got almost four times more than they’ve requested in the first place so it’s safe to say that the VRMMORPG managed to capture the gamers’ attention even in its early development stage.

Players travel between Kingdoms using their caravans. This is the game’s housing feature as players can personalize their caravans.

A Township Tale

A Township Tale is more of a multiplayer game than a VRMMO, but we have plenty of reasons to include it on this list. Not all MMO players are after large-scale social interaction. Some just want to play with a bunch of friends and ATT lets you do just that. Players can host servers for up to eight members.

The character system is based on professions. You can become a warrior, blacksmith, cook, and even a janitor. Survival features, such as eating to keep your HP full, make A Township Tale an interesting game.

Compatible with: Oculus Quest, Quest 2, Steam VR, Vive, Valve Index.
