Back in 2015, indie developer KO_OP announced development on its first virtual reality (VR) GNOG. Supporting Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE’s) PlayStation VR, GNOG is a colourful puzzle title that’s now got a release date for May.
GNOG is designed as a type of puzzle box, where each level is self contained. Players can spin the box around to find all sorts of brightly coloured components that are intrinsically linked. Some components work by being spun, while others need to be pressed or slid. Figuring out what does what, and where to look to see what activates is all part of the fun.
Sound will also play a big part in the nine levels that’ll be available at launch, with a soundtrack composed by Marskye.
KO_OP recently attended the Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2017 in San Francisco, showcasing its latest build. VRFocus got to preview the videogame, saying: “GNOG possesses some truly engaging and inventive ideas that might just make it stand out for players.” Adding: ‘it could certainly be one of the most interesting to arrive in 2017.’
The title will launch for PlayStation 4 with PlayStation VR support on 2nd May 2017. The studio has an official website for the title where players can per-order GNOG if they wish.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of GNOG, reporting back with any further updates.
