Cortopia Studios’ puzzle title Down the Rabbit Hole arrived for PC VR headsets and Oculus Quest back in March but seen delays for the PlayStation VR version. Today, the developer has announced that the launch will finally take place at the end of this week.
Regular VRFocus readers should be well versed on Down the Rabbit Hole as we’ve covered the title fairly extensively. Offering an imaginative take on Lewis Carroll’s famous novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland the videogame actually takes place before the book as a sort of prequel.
Players control an unnamed girl who’s searching for her pet Patches. Whilst doing so she falls down a seemingly bottomless hole into Wonderland, beginning an adventure across the magical land.
Designed to be comfortable for any player, you control the girl through a series of levels each split into various rooms which appear around you. The entire world can then be twisted and moved by grabbing tree roots to give yourself a better viewpoint. This is important for not only solving some of the puzzles but also delving into each scene to locate secrets. These are invitations to the Queen of Heart’s party at the end of the videogame, with several endings to unlock in the process.
The puzzle-adventure features well-known characters from the book with the likes of the Cheshire Cat and the White Rabbit popping up. Reviewing Down the Rabbit Hole on PC VR VRFocus said: “The title offers a new slant to this beloved children’s tale, feeling both familiar thanks to the characters yet different enough to be engaging throughout. Thanks to its mechanics and polished execution Down the Rabbit Hole offers a delightful VR experience.”
Down the Rabbit Hole will be released for digital purchase via the PlayStation Store starting 1st May, retailing for $19.99 USD. For further updates from Cortopia Studios, keep reading VRFocus.
