Gorilla Tag has a very beautiful language that is hidden beneath its surface, giving the impression of a chaotic virtual reality fight between monkeys. Don't bother with complex stories; in this situation, communication is very basic and only involves grunts and gestures.

A challenge is shown by an open hand, while a light pat on the back shows a reluctant ceasefire. If you miss a jump, it means you're unhappy, but if you catch it, you'll hear whoops of joy that turn into shouts of victory. This inner language is a unique way for friends to connect with each other. You can figure out what other gorillas are trying to say by reading their stance and tone of voice.

The world changes into a clean slate for making things. A fun swing in the trees turns into a joyful celebration of movement, and a risky jump across a gap turns into a dance with fate. We can interact on a deeper, more intuitive level with Gorilla Tag because it uses a primitive form of communication that goes beyond words. When you put on your VR headset and go into the jungle, know that you're not just playing a game; you're making a symphony of movement and emotion, one primal scream at a time.
