Puzzle videogame Marble Mountain by indie developer Lightning Rock launched on Steam Greenlight back in August and has so far garnered a lot of support for the virtual reality (VR) compatible title. In the developers last update, the team have finished implementing Unity VR allowing for support of the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and other compatible VR devices when it launches.
Marble Mountain is a challenging puzzle platform in the vein of classics like Marble Madness or Super Monkey Ball. Players will have to balance, roll and puzzle their way through an assortment of grassland, snow, lava, desert and forest levels, 25 in all. All the while avoiding obstacles such as avalanches, Mettalan cubes, evil skulls and trapdoors.
Alongside the Unity VR integration, have been working on polishing up the graphics for Marble Mountain creating more diverse textures on the larger areas. This is partly due to the challenge of altering a platformer for VR, where all the levels need to be filled with detail. The main game just features marbles but the studio has been working on different skins, revolving around a hamster ball idea, with the first being a Bear in a Ball theme.
Lightning Rock is an Australian indie studio which was founded in October 2014, and VRFocus will continue to follow any further updates from Lightning Rock on Marble Mountain and report back.
