This physics-based puzzle title will have players use a variety of puzzle pieces, as well as gravity and momentum to guide the trapped astronaut to the next wormhole. Players will have to deal with unreliable gravity, trampolines, conveyor belts and “other fun inconveniences.” Each level will feature up to five playfields arranged in a cube. Guide the dashing protagonist as he questions his sanity and the world around him.
“This is just a chemical reaction – all in my mind. And what a fine, strong mind it is – handsome even – and more than capable of riding out this hallucination, clearly caused by cosmic rays… Right?” – a excerpt from the game’s Steam Greenlight page
This fully voiced title will be arriving on the PS4 and PCs in Q2 2015. Nebulous is designed to work with the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. The headset will even allow players to enjoy the game without any other input device.
The Oculus Rift virtual reality headset was originally revealed as part of a Kickstarter campaign in 2012. This campaign was intended to allow the headset’s manufacturer, Oculus VR, to create a developer kit version of the headset. The initial kit and subsequent versions of the development kit (dev kit) were made available for sale on the manufacturer’s site. However these kits are only intended to help developers start working on games that support this virtual reality headset.
The headset allows players to experience their favorite titles, like Elite Dangerous and Euro Truck Simulator 2, without any distractions. The final version of the headset has yet to be released, however it has already see widespread adoption within the industry. The headset is supported on over 100 games. This list includes some popular titles, like Team Fortress 2, Hawken and Half-Life 2. A final consumer version of the Oculus Rift is expected to be released in 2015, however the manufacturer has not revealed any details about a possible release window. The company has revealed that the next version of the headset will not be a third dev kit. The next headset from Oculus VR will be the consumer version.
