There are some genres of games that seem to fit rather well within the confines of virtual reality, and puzzlers is one of them. Moving from a more chaotic shoot 'em up in Blasters of the Universe, developer Secret Location's next project is Transpose, a decidedly more methodical title coming to PSVR later this year.
It takes place in a surreal sci-fi environment where you're able to record your actions and then create a clone of yourself, who will then continually run that loop. Using this ability, you'll be able to conquer the game's puzzles, which require you to work together with past versions of yourself to get through 30 levels of head-scratching conundrums.
Here's what Ryan Andal, President and Co-Founder at Secret Location, had to say about the studio's new project: “VR is all about wonder, and we wanted to encapsulate that in a game that extends our perception of what’s possible in VR through a lengthy and fully-realized experience. Transpose’s heavy surrealism is our attempt to, literally and figuratively, completely turn you on your head and transport you into a warped reality you’d never be able to experience otherwise – this is when VR is at its best.”
It looks and sounds pretty good, and we're definitely interested in trying it out for ourselves. Transpose is currently slated for a Fall 2018 release. What do you think of this new puzzler? Pause time and leave us a comment below.
