About This Game

Set in a pocket universe of Aperture Science, The Lab offers a wide range of ways to enjoy VR, all in one application.

Slingshot
Begin your career as a Calibration Trainee by recklessly destroying everything in the Aperture Storage Annex using the Core Calibration slingshot.

Longbow
Use your archery skills to defend your noble castle gate from a rampaging but adorable and equally noble horde of attackers.

Xortex
Are you a bad enough dude to become a Xortex ace? Relive the golden era of gaming -- only this time, it's all around you.

Postcards
Visit exotic, far-off locales from the comfort of your own head.

Human Medical Scan
Explore the intricate beauty of the human body through a highly detailed model created from a series of CT medical scans.

Solar System
Why watch shows about the vast majesty of space when you can jump in and see it for yourself? Have educational space-fun while putting Neil Degrasse-Tyson out of business.

Robot Repair
Can you repair a robot? Good, because Aperture Science's Human Diversity Outreach Program is now hiring.

Secret Shop
The fantasy equivalent of a twenty-four-hour convenience store is now open for business! Peruse artifacts, shop for familiars and cast a spell or two at Dota's Secret Shop!
