Next week British indie developer Whitway Studios will be releasing its debut virtual reality (VR) title for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality headsets, a comedic puzzler called People Cu3ed.
Players find themselves taking part in an event called the ‘Interdimensional Games’ where they have to complete 40 various stages inside a gigantic crystalline tower. The premise of each stage is relatively simple, players have to get from one side of a giant chasm to the other in as quick a time as possible. Of course, this becomes no easy task as all sorts of obstacles litter the expanse to slow matters down.
To get across you have a team, who just so happen to be a bunch of mates turned into cubes. Using your trusty cubed friends they need to be placed so you can teleport across each one, manoeuvring them singularly or as a group as needs must. There’s a further twist in the fact that all your cubed mates need to make it as well.
Alongside all the puzzles Whitway Studios has a fully voiced, animated (and hilarious!) cast of characters, such as the ever-sarcastic, unprofessional and ‘encouraging’ Gamesmaster doesn’t hesitate to take it out on you and your team.
People Cu3ed will be available from 2nd November via Steam, retailing for $9.99 USD. Check out the launch trailer below to see what the madness of People Cu3ed is all about. For further updates from Whitway Studios keep reading VRFocus.
