Just over a month ago virtual reality (VR) developer Secret Location announced its latest project, a puzzle experience for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR called Transpose. Today, the studio has confirmed the launch date for next month, putting it a couple of weeks away.
Transpose looks to mix surreal imagery with some quirky puzzle mechanics that involve a little bit of time travel. With three worlds to play through, and over 30 levels to complete all the puzzles require players to clone themselves while making time loops of past actions to solve them.
Granted the power to manipulate time, players create multiple, overlapping versions of themselves, to solve puzzles which become ever increasingly complex. Players record and layer these past “echoes” of themselves to traverse paths and collaborate across time.
Alongside the time loops, Transpose allows players to rotate the environment around them to walk on walls and ceilings, experiencing perspective shifts and multifaceted puzzles in ways only possible in VR. To ensure maximum comfort for all players Secret Location has included multiple locomotion and comfort options. So players will have the choice of room-scale, standing and seated play depending on preference.
Transpose will launch on Tuesday, 6th November for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR, priced at $19.99 USD on Steam and Oculus Store. Available in English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Japanese, Simplified Chinese and Korean, the videogame can be wish-listed or followed on the respective store.
