All of September is virtual reality month at Hollywood Redux. Use #HRVR on social media to send us virtual reality material of note, plus check out our Twitch Gameplays and episodes of IGL Podcast for the full experience.
We’re kicking off HRVR month with some new VR and the very fun game, Fantastic Contraption.
Press start below for the episode:
Fantastic Contraption is a puzzle game in which players use the motion controls to construct machines from building materials in order to meet challenges. Using basic components such as beams and wheels, players can design a machine from scratch to suit the needs of the puzzle. Many puzzles require the machine to move across the environment; the player cannot steer the machine after they have completed it, so navigation needs must be built into the design of the machine.
Fantastic Contraption was originally a building game made way back in 2008. Millions of people played it obsessively and saved over 12 million contraptions. You can still play it for free. For years we loved the idea of a 3d Fantastic Contraption but couldn’t figure out how it would work. Then we tried the Vive.
The new Fantastic Contraption has been designed from the ground up for room-scale VR. Imagine walking around a grassy island in the sky while you build a machine the size of a horse with your own hands. Press play and watch it trundle off to reach the goal on the other side of the island. With 40+ levels and infinite solutions, it’s a VR experience you and your friends will play for hours.
Fantastic Contraption will launch with the HTC Vive.
