The KZero VR Software Radar tracks games, apps and other virtual reality experiences by genre and we’ve just updated it with Q3 2014 data.
Explaining the VR Software Radar Chart
The Radar visualises these games (and non-gaming apps) according to:
Genre: We’ve segmented the titles into twelve different genres, from First Person Shooters and Exploration through to Social Virtual Reality, Puzzle and Platformer.

Launch stage: Broadly split into Released/Open Beta (red dots) or Alpha/Pre-Alpha (orange dots).
