As VRFocus noted in its roundup of videogame releases on Friday, this week has quite the selection of virtual reality (VR) titles rolling out. One of which is Cortopia Studios’ Down the Rabbit Hole which is scheduled to arrive for multiple platforms this Thursday. But as the studio revealed this weekend, that will no longer include PlayStation VR.
Down the Rabbit Hole's launch on PlayStation VR has been postponed to early April.
The game will still launch on March 26th for all other platforms (Quest, Rift, Steam, and Viveport).

Cortopia Studios made the announcement via Down the Rabbit Hole’s Twitter account, simply noting that the release had been postponed until April for PlayStation VR. All the other platforms, Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, Valve Index, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality will be going ahead as planned.
There was no explanation as to why this has occurred but with The Room VR: A Dark Matter and Paper Beast also arriving this week a bit of breathing space is no bad thing. While no date has yet been mentioned, Cortopia Studios and Perp Games will be releasing a physical copy of Down the Rabbit Hole for PlayStation VR on 24th April, so the digital version might well launch the same day for a tandem release.
Down the Rabbit Hole is a puzzle-driven adventure set within the Alice in Wonderland universe created by Lewis Carroll. The titles story is set before Alice ever steps foot in the magical realm, with an unnamed girl stumbling across Wonderland as she searches for her lost pet patches.
The videogame will feature familiar faces and tropes from the original, with the likes of the Cheshire Cat and the White Rabbit popping up as well as playing with size and scale. The videogame world itself is an interactive diorama where players control the girl through detailed rooms which appear out of the darkness. Hidden away for players to find are invitations to the Queen of Heart’s party, locating them all unlocks one of the Down the Rabbit Hole’s multiple endings.
“From what was shown Down the Rabbit Hole is going to be a delightful little puzzle adventure. The gameplay uses the characteristics of VR in all the right ways, from all-encompassing scenes to deliver the story to lots of interactive elements that can be grabbed and pulled,” VRFocus noted in its first preview of Down the Rabbit Hole.
When further details regarding Down the Rabbit Hole for PlayStation VR are released, VRFocus will let you know.
