Videogame collectors looking for new PlayStation VR titles will have to look for more shelving space this summer as Perp Games readies a selection of new virtual reality (VR) games. First to arrive is InnerspaceVR’s creative puzzler Maskmaker which is set to hit European retail locations this week.
Originally, the physical release was due to take place a couple of weeks ago, before being quietly pushed back until 2nd July. It’ll offer the same content as the digital version which launched back in April for PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, Valve Index, and Oculus Rift.
If you’ve not tried Maskmaker yet it is InnerspaceVR’s biggest production to date, crafting a magical world where you become an apprentice to a local mask maker. You soon discover that mask making isn’t just about carving colourful masks, opening up doorways to new realms which can only be accessed by certain designs. Part adventure part creative sandbox, you have to travel to the various biomes to discover the masks worn by the inhabitants.
It’s only through this process that you can carve the masks before applying them with paints and other adornments found on your travels. Become stuck in one area and it’s worth going to explore another to find the crafting materials required for the next stage in the journey. All the while uncovering more of the mysterious story and the King who rules these strange lands.
Reviewing the PC VR of Maskmaker, VRFocus said: “Maskmaker is very much a slow burner which you need to give time to develop past the first three levels, after which you’ll be rewarded with a rich puzzle experience.”
As mentioned, Maskmaker isn’t the only VR title on Perp Games’ publishing list. Another puzzle videogame Gravitational will be launching in July, Psytec Games’ Windlands 2 arrives later this summer and Arashi: Castles of Sin by Endeavour One is also due this summer.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of the latest PlayStation VR releases, reporting back with further updates.
