Jurassic Park: Trespasser VR Fan Remake in Half-Life: Alyx under development
Modder ‘Stevokenevo’ is currently working on a VR remake of Jurassic Park: Trespasser in Half-Life: Alyx. Jurassic Park: Trespasser featured great physics for its time, and most gamers refer to it as the “arm simulator”. And, as a fan of Jurassic Park, I’m really looking forward to it.
The modder plans to complete this VR remake by the 23rd anniversary of Trespasser’s release (October 28th 2021).

Valheim has a first-person mod, and it works pretty darn well
While Valheim doesn't officially support mods, modders aren't letting that slow them down. There's already a mod that overhauls the construction system, and so it was probably only a matter of time until someone overhauled your Viking's perspective. Yep, there's now a mod for Valheim that lets you play in first-person mode.
And the while the First Person View mod is still a work in progress, and the game itself doesn't seem like it'd be a natural fit, it really does work surprisingly well. I ran around for about a half hour in first-person this morning, and the beautiful world looks even better when you peer through your character's eyes instead of looking over their shoulders.
