The joy of Gorilla Tag for Oculus Quest proves Meta should do more with App Lab

For some people, Gorilla Tag needs little introduction. By the end of 2021, Gorilla Tag had hit 1.5 million unique players. It has a 4.7/5 rating on the Quest Store with 34 thousand ratings, while even Beat Saber only has 43 thousand. And that’s made even more impressive by the fact that it’s on App Lab, meaning Meta does its very best not to acknowledge its existence.

For those who haven’t tried it, you may look at this low-res indie title by LemmingVR and wonder what the fuss is about. That was my initial reaction to Gorilla Tag, which looked charmingly simple but nothing to write home about. Especially when my first encounter with the community was off-putting, to say the least.
