Video Game Review: YIMBY Barrel Composter Assembly (FeelyVR)

It’s rare that I sit down with some of the new tactile virtual reality video games (“FeelyVR”), but an evening a few weeks ago, I had time to play through “YIMBY Barrel Composter Assembly” by YIMBY.  I wired the headset up so I could take screenshots, and I had a tape recorder taking notes while I played through so I could do my writeup below.

Did you get the expansion game that allows you to make compost in the bin with food scraps? What kind of challenges did that present?

Turns out, the barrel composter just doesn’t work at all for the dry desert climate I have. I’ve got some large bins I built (documented elsewhere on the blog) that I’m using now.

I currently have one bin made from 3 broken pallets for the fixed side and fence stakes to hold front boards up. Works fine for yard waste, but I want to do something more enclosed for food scraps. I had an end over end barrel that we used for a few years (got it second hand) but the axle rusted through. I’ll probably just figure out a way to fix that, but like the idea of separate compartments for adding new material and removing finished compost.
