LIGHT TRACER to Bring Magic to Your PSVR

TAG:Game, Published On 2017-08-08

Hello world! You may have seen our social media posts about us attending the Casual Connect, both in Singapore back in May as well as in Seattle last week.

We not only had a great time meeting other indie developers from the industry and receiving valuable feedbacks to improve our games but also got the awesome opportunity to join the Indie Prize at Casual Connect Seattle with LIGHT TRACER, a VR puzzle platform game that features a cute anime looking princess trying to climb a Babel-like tower. And we are very delighted and proud that LIGHT TRACER was not only nominated as ‘THE BEST FAMILY AND KIDS GAME’ this year but that the team around developer Void Dimensions actually won the trophy at the Indie Prize showcase! Click here for more details.

Some of you who follow our blog and social media may have cast an eye on this game for some time already while others actually may wonder: What this game is all about?

So today we are happy to finally release some more details about this magical game!

LIGHT TRACER is a VR puzzle-platformer that combines a platform level design with well-thought through puzzles and unique gameplay mechanics wrapped in charming chibi anime artwork.

In the game, the player controls a mysterious godlike entity that wields a magical Light Staff in one hand while using its other hand to interact with the game world, helping the Princess to reach the safety of the tower’s pinnacle. The Light Staff guides the Princess forward while the other hand is used to change the camera angle or interact with world and its objects to for example move items and turn barriers into bridges. As the player progresses the story and entity’s hidden relationship with the princess is gradually revealed.

The Princess’s journey comprises eight different chapters which feature various mechanics ranging from ice to gravity puzzles or mechanical contraptions, just to be topped with each level ending in a challenging boss fight requiring strategy as well as quick reflexes. Players will need all their skills to guide the Princess through stages full of platform action by avoiding obstacles, jumping over gaps or carefully time an attack on enemies by using the VR controllers. What is more, they also need to get creative to engage with the mind-bending puzzles in each level. Often the solution depends not only on your intellect, but also in the way you look at things!

Some features of the game:

--A New Kind of VR Puzzle-Platformer: Guide the Princess through a maze of 3D platforms challenging you as the player to carefully time jumps, enemy attacks and world manipulation to solve all puzzles through the point of view—literally!

--The Powers of a God: Wield your powerful Light Staff in one hand while interacting with the world’s environment with the other to open a path upwards

--Enchanting Graphics: A compelling, almost toy-like world comes to life as you ascend the giant tower and interact with the Princess

Eight Unique Worlds: From Gravity Levels over Ice Stages to a full Mechanical World, each chapter offers new puzzles and challenges

--Thrilling Views: Grab and spin the tower for fresh perspectives that may unveil the answer to the riddles in front of you

Battle Bosses with Bare Hands: Each chapter ends with a unique boss fight where you must use both strategy and quick reflexes to overcome opponents like the Evil Rock Giant or Sinister Snowman
