Nock is the latest game from Normal., the self-described “community of creative misfits, artists, engineers and storytellers working at the intersection of design and technology”, behind the game. of creative and quirky Half + Half hide-and-seek. Combining football and archery, Nock is aiming high by calling itself “the first multiplayer sport for virtual reality”.
Nock is inspired by football, but instead of kicking the ball, players must shoot it with their bow to score a goal or defend their own. Players can also use “block arrows” to place blocks on the field – or above – to create obstacles for other players or even help defend their objective.

Similar to other popular soccer games like Rocket League, Nock is not just about attacking and defending the goal. You might find yourself stunned by a fast-moving ball or a platform between floating blocks to blast an opponent.
Since launching yesterday, Nock has been incredibly well received by the VR community. With largely positive reviews on the Oculus Storefront, the game ran into some issues with its multiplayer matchmaking, preventing some players from finding matches online.
Normal.’s latest game, Half + Half, is one of our favorite family VR games. Android Central’s Nick Sutrich praised the game for its simplicity and intuitiveness for playing a few quick games without too much hassle. If Nock’s reception and hype is anything to go by, it’s sure to follow in Half + Half’s footsteps. Nock is now available for download on Meta Quest 2 for $9.99 right now.
Nock combines all the fun of football with the precision of archery. Coming from the talented team of Normal., Nock is certainly a must.
