Puzzling Places is a relaxing and rather wholesome-looking 3D puzzle game available now on PSVR2. Originally released on PSVR, owners of the original will be able to upgrade for free.
The aim of Puzzling Places is to piece together pictures of real-world locations, with the twist being it's entirely in 3D. This PSVR2 iteration of the game comes with major improvements over the original in addition to an exclusive 1000-piece puzzle, perfect for introducing your fancy new piece of tech to grandma before locking her in a room with a lycanthrope in Resident Evil Village's free VR Mode.

Brings back memories to when I was younger and got one of these for a birthday or something:
I tried the demo at the weekend, which has two small puzzles. Once you get your head around the controls (the tutorial doesnt have any instructional text and needs its own tutorial) it is quite relaxing and quite satifsfying when the model comes together. I'm not quite sure there is enough interest/longevity to justify the price tag - even at £16.
This is the perfect example of VR taking a game that would never work on a flat screen and enhancing it.
Loving this so far, one of my favourite experiences on my new headset
Does this game have co-op? Because it looks like it would be perfect for that!
Tried the demo and it was quite chill. I can see the potential, but not sure there is the content there to justify the price.
Also seems they want to sell a load of puzzles as DLC. At about 50p per new puzzle it’s not terrible depending on their size, but they bundle them into £4 collections and, when I think about the games I could buy for £4,£8,£12…it just doesn’t seem the best use of money.
I tried all demos for PSVR2 and this was one of my favourites! There are only 2 levels but you can change number of pieces (50,100 and 200 for this demo) I already spent few hours on this, love it, will buy full game after i finish Horizon FW
Me and the wife liked the demo and i will grab it on a sale but adding in all that DLC makes it pricey conssidering there is about 10 DLC packs at £4 each. Id have appreciated a complete edition. Ive got it, and its DLC in my watch list tho.
Family friendly offering, will keep an eye on it. Probably would have bought it at 9.99, will add it to my watch list.
It's a great relaxing game. The eye tracking makes picking up the pieces very easy and intuitive. The sound design around the puzzles is pretty awesome, like if you are facing a city you hear cars and people talking but if you rotate to the forest you hear the wind and stuff like that.
Does the full game have a plat trophy?
Loved the demo! Surprised article didn't mention eye tracking for piece selection. Super cool!
I picked this up for PSVR1, and although the move controllers made it a bit fiddly, it was still very engaging. Looking forward to trying it with the fancy new controllers. Also, the developers are donating proceeds from the Ukraine historic site DLC, so good on them.
