About This Game Panoptic is a tense, 1v1 asymmetrical VR vs desktop game that pits a colossal Overseer, armed with a slow but devastating eye laser, against a tiny dissident Being intent on destroying the Overseer’s energy sources by mimicking the movements of others to remain undetected.
Born out of a multi-award winning game jam prototype, Panoptic sees one player enter virtual reality as the Overseer, a powerful being that searches the world and its inhabitants for any signs of uprising. The other player uses a desktop computer to become one of the tiny Beings under the watchful eye of the Overseer. Tasked with destroying the Overseer’s energy sources, blending in becomes critical. A misstep, breaking away from the crowd cover of other Beings, or being spotted destroying an energy orb turns the search into a nerve-wracking hunt. Armed with a slow-charging eye laser capable of killing a Being with a single shot, the Overseer will suddenly have the advantage, as the dissident Being attempts to once again hide in plain sight.
With an unsettling, mysterious atmosphere that hints at a dark and secretive lore, Panoptic features several levels and environments, a wondrous sense of scale, and short - but constantly intense - rounds of local 1v1 competition.

Panoptic user review
Perfect game for a VR Party
I played the demo with my cousin and really enjoyed it and liked the idea. So I bought the main game and am liking the maps. It can be difficult playing as the overseer (depending who's on the PC) as there are so many little guys walking around, but is fun nonetheless. Overall, I would recommend this to anyone who's into asymmetrical VR games and wanting to play something fun with friends & family.
Had so much fun with the original demo I wanted to support these guys, so I made the plunge. My son and his friend got the first play session and had a blast. Lots of yelling at each other. The game has a few new extras, such as a "blend in" feature for the little guy, and a lens for the overlord to help while you're searching. There are three maps, all different from the original demo level, and each level has multiple orbs to trigger to win. I'm looking forward to getting some friends over this weekend and seeing how other folks enjoy it.
Friend and I played literally 1 game on the demo and I bought it right away. The game-play is unique, engaging and immediately fun.
Amazing experience for both you and a friend. The game is just as, if not more fun to play as the pc player in place of the vr player, which is farely rare. Amazing game, can't wait for more levels/update.
I don't usually write reviews for games. But I will happily make an exception for this one. I LOVE this game, it is challenging, fun, and local multiplayer.
Played the demo with my girlfriend and we had to buy the game after trying it. It's really cool being the Overseer and the maps are beautiful in VR. If you have somebody to play this with, I definitely recommend at least trying out the demo!
Panoptic is super fun. Playing it as the desktop player is one of the most intense experiences I've ever had playing a game against friends, with the atmospheric music getting louder and the yellow light shining all around me when the VR player looks at me. The 3 maps are well made, with a unique geometric design aesthetic. However, as you might expect from an Early Access title, it lacks polish, and it isn't always exactly clear what's going on; for example, when the keyboard player loses, they just get slower until they stop moving, and then it goes back to the title screen; at first, I wasn't actually sure who had won the game. The "Press Action" text that appears when you can press E to blend in should be reworked to tell you what pressing action will actually do. Also if your VR tracking is shaky it can become almost impossible for the Overseer to win, even if they know who the keyboard player is, because it's very difficult to hit the eye laser correctly. But none of those issues stop this from being easily the most fun and unique VR title I've played yet. Get this game.
Brilliant concept. Needs more variance and longevity in some areas
Wow, love this game! Friends come over just to play.
A brilliantly simple concept that makes for a perfect party game.
Game is a blast. One of the better VR games.
This game passes the first hurdle of any really great game, it is simply and essentially fun to play. Whether you're the VR or PC player it feels good just existing in this world. In either position, I and everyone I've played it with were having fun whether we won or lost. Top shelf stuff here.
Quite nice game. Still in Early Access but very complete in its current state and very promising for the future.
Such a good idea for a game!
