Rusty Oak, a development company from Kaunas, Lithuania, will be releasing a pinball-like puzzle VR game for HTC Vive later this month. Titled “Hurl VR“, it is a “ball throwing simulator in virtual reality with a touch of tactical puzzler, requiring skill, logical thinking and precise timing.”
Hurl VR starts as a simple throwing simulation and quickly grows into an interactive puzzle game. In order to reach their goal players must throw balls to hit platforms in specific patterns. Platforms have unique properties and machanics that change from chapter to chapter. The game starts with simple static levels and quickly incorporates new mechanics as moving platforms, bouncer platforms and portals.
Physical characteristics of Hurl VR players play huge role in how the game will be experienced. A player of shorter height might find it extremely easy to complete levels that require low and tactical throws, whereas taller ones might find it really challenging and vice versa. By giving each player a completely different experience the game design of Hurl VR makes it not only an interactive puzzler, but a funny party game as well.
The Steam Page of the game is already live now. It will see release on 12nd September.
