Several months ago VRFocus reported on Funsoft and Digigo releasing a teaser trailer for upcoming Gear VR project Rangi. A puzzle title set in Africa, Rangi has now launched for the mobile head-mounted display (HMD).
Inspired by tribal art, ancient architecture, rhythmic music and African landscapes, Rangi mixes up puzzle and platform elements as players uncover a story line involving a devious enemy, Matata whilst recovering the life force of the Music Giants.
As players explore the stylized world of Rangi, they’ll uncover hidden artifacts to find and collect in each of the different maps while listening to a soundtrack inspired by tribal music and created by Jorge Castro and Frédéric Seraphinem.
Funsoft’s Creative Director, Fabien Delpech, said in a statement: “I’m very proud to unveil Rangi to the public. We’re excited to create an experience in which you dive into a refreshing universe, where each level has its own unique flavour. In addition to today’s release, a new Rangi world will be available soon. Players can expect World Two to be darker yet just as immersive, with even more challenging puzzles. Each gameplay mechanic is pushed further, creating many surprises!”
“Today’s launch is the first in a two part, multi platform release, and Rangi fans can look forward to new content in the near future. Funsoft have released the first of two Rangi game worlds on Gear VR, with widescale release on other platforms scheduled to follow later in the year,” added Hatim Bensaid, Funsoft CEO and Rangi Producer. “Players who purchase Rangi can look forward to checking out World Two before the end of February. This additional DLC will be available at no extra cost.”
Rangi can be downloaded now from the Oculus Store for $7.99 USD/£5.99 GBP.
