Puzzle titles are the bread and butter of virtual reality (VR). Easy to get into and able to absorb the user’s attention in the addictive way puzzle videogames can, they often serve as a great introduction for people new to VR. Korean Developer VRotein are hoping to get more people involved with VR with the launch of its new puzzle title Slice and Dice.
The aim of Slice and Dice is to get the dice into the goal, which is on the floor of each stage. The dice and positioned on the top of various cubes, which the player must strategically slice apart in order to get the dice into the goal. There are various cube types, which all have their own physical properties. As the player progresses, the difficulty increases by adding the number of layers the player must get the dice through before reaching the level floor.
The title currently has 100 stages available, which equates to roughly 20 hours of total play time. The developers have aimed to make the experience of watching to be as enjoyable as the experience of playing, with an audience able to watch and offer advice on the most efficient way to solve the puzzles, or just to mock the player’s performance.
Slice and Dice is compatible with both HTC Vive and Oculus Rift and requires motion controllers. Several languages are supported, including English, French, German, Korean and Japanese. The title is available through Steam with a 20% launch discount, reducing the price to £5.59 (GBP) from the usual £6.09. The discount will end on 7th June, 2017.
A launch trailer is available to view below.
