Nebulous is a physics-based puzzle game that sees players navigating pinball-like mazes, in order to guide an intrepid astronaut to his eventual freedom.
Comprised of up to 5 playing gields, each stage can be rotated to guide the game’s ever-falling protagonist, avoiding all manner of mechanical hazards to ensure his safe (yet potentially turbulent) passage home. And if laser-infested rotatable networks aren’t fun enough, each move you make will be met by a wry witticism from your astronaut pal as he falls to his hopeful destiny.
Whilst the game will be fully playable with a mouse or controller, Nebulous was designed to accommodate the new capabilities of VR systems. As such, players can turn their head to select and move objects, adding a new layer of complexity to the game’s puzzle-solving.
Currently on Steam’s Early Access, Nebulous releases officially on August 30 2016 for PC, Mac and PlayStation 4, with Xbox One and PS VR versions expected to launch later this year. For more information, you can visit Namazu’s official website here, or follow the developer on Twitter.
