A couple of months ago Chinese publisher Oasis Games launched one of its best titles yet for PlayStation VR, Void Dimensions puzzle platform Light Tracer. Today the company has announced it’ll be extending support to Steam in 2018, allowing Oculus Rift and HTC Vive players to delve into the cartoon world.
Light Tracer is a mixture of platform-style movement and puzzles where players guide a princess with a Light Staff in one hand whilst the second controller manipulates the world, giving them a better view and interacting with objects to open paths. It’s not just puzzles players have to solve either, they’ll need precise timing and strategic attacks using the Princess’s sword to get around enemies. The Princess’s journey comprises eight chapters where she will encounter rock-throwing trolls, a world of snow, slippery ice and new monsters to fight; each ending with a boss fight.
For the Steam launch Oasis Games will be adding improvements to Light Tracer, improving the visual finish over the PlayStation VR version. Both HTC Vive and Oculus Rift releases will be updated with enhanced graphics and optimised visuals, helping to further immerse players in the rocky, snowy, gravity-bending environments. Additionally, being godly is made easier as the game’s operation system has been upgraded for a more natural control.
Light Tracer will be released via Steam on 15th, January, 2018, retailing for $14.99 USD. Oasis Games also plan on making the videogame available through the Oculus Store at a later date.
VRFocus reviewed Light Tracer for PlayStation VR, awarding it four stars, saying: “Light Tracer is a well-crafted VR platform title. Once you get used to the controls, it becomes challenging enough to keep you coming back for more. There are some very frustrating elements, but not enough to spoil the gameplay entirely.”
Oasis Games’ previous VR titles include Time of Virtual Reality’s (TVR) Ace Banana, Pixel Gear from Geronimo Interactive, Weeping Doll from TianShe Media, Nekcom’s DYING: Reborn, and Mixip, most of which launched on or around the time of PlayStation VR’s arrival in 2016.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Oasis Games, reporting back with its latest announcements.
