A downloadable game for Android

Use your makeup kit and fabulous sense of style to give Mum a makeover for a variety of different scenarios, in virtual reality! 


Requires Oculus/Meta Quest 2 or Pro.

A Game By Its Cover: This VR experience is made for the A Game By Its Cover 2023 game jam, where participants create real games based on fictional game cartridge covers.

I made this game based on Ashley Ronning's "Put Makeup on Mum" Famicase cartridge cover:
