If you love virtual reality (VR) puzzle experiences then Northway Games and Radial Games’ Fantastic Contraption has to be one of the best. An original launch title for HTC Vive and then arriving on release day for Oculus Touch, the lighthearted building title now has a confirmed released date for Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE) PlayStation VR.
Back in December 2016 Radial Games’ Stephen Gray announced that Fantastic Contraption would be coming to PlayStation VR in Spring 2017. After that not much else was heard until today, when Radial Games’ Christopher Floyd revealed on PlayStation.Blog that the videogame now has a launch date of Tuesday, 11th July, 2017.
Not only that, but PlayStation VR users will also get exclusive levels found nowhere else and special headset only features that allow players to resize and position their gameworld at the press of a button. “We have a handful of brand-new, PlayStation-exclusive levels in the release,” said Floyd. “Try your hand bouncing around some moguls, attacking a big-bricked wall, and more! We’ve designed a few challenges specifically around seated play, and we know you’ll enjoy them.”
And it doesn’t stop there. If you happen to own a PlayStation VR Pro as well, there are a load of additional enhancements. These include: higher-resolution textures; improved backdrops and scenery; additional special-effects and visual flairs; extra island decorations and 125% resolution oversampling for improved sharpness.
At launch Fantastic Contraption will retail for $19.99 USD with a special launch-week promotion of 10 percent off available for PlayStation Plus users.
