Magnetic: Cage Closed Brings First-Person Puzzles to PS4 in March

January 19, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

Scheduled for release in March 2015 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC at $14.99, Magnetic: Cage Closed is a “new breed of puzzler” from Guru Games, and it will be playable at PAX South starting on January 23.

Taking on the role of a prisoner serving time in an ever-changing prison with chambers that shift in random patterns, you are given a special magnetic gun and urged by the sadistic warden to keep progressing. Offering up puzzles and moral choices, Guru Games says “no playthrough is ever the same.”

The developers add:

Magnetic: Cage Closed is a first person puzzle game where the player manipulates magnetic forces to accomplish their goals. The mechanics are focused around a single tool: The Magnet Gun which allows you to create electromagnetic fields with either positive or negative charges. This power is used to either repel or attract magnetical objects. However, if the objects are heavier than you, you will be the one flying trough the room.
