For those that like intricate puzzle videogames like Gadgeteer or Super Puzzle Galaxy then you’ll want to keep an eye out for Machizzle by iNFINITE Production. The upcoming title is scheduled to arrive this summer with a demo planned for this month.
A tabletop-style experience the goal is simple, get a ball from its starting location to the goal, any way you can with the tools provided. The first videogame from the Czech Republic-based developer, Machizzle gives you 10+ blocks to solve over 70 levels, ranging from ones which can speed the ball up, teleport it to a new location or ricochet the ball in whichever direction you like. There are even powerups which offer useful mechanics like bending gravity.
From the details shown so far Machizzle is all about letting you choose how to solve each puzzle, rather than trying to find a specific solution to the challenge.
In addition to the main campaign whilst offering that all important replay factor, the title will include a level editor so you’re able to build your own devilishly difficult levels. What’s more, Machizzle will also include online sharing so fans can test everyone else’s, providing an unlimited number of puzzles.
Currently, iNFINITE Production has set a release date of 20th August for Machizzle, supporting Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Valve Index and Windows Mixed Reality headsets. As part of the Steam Games Festival this month Machizzle will be available to demo between 16th – 22nd June.
Much like Gadgeteer, Machizzle looks to be one of those puzzle experiences where you can experiment with different permutations for hours; whether that’s trying to solve a puzzle in the quickest fashion or trying to build one which is highly complex.
As further details regarding Machizzle are released, VRFocus will let you know.
