Mind-Bending Puzzle Game Attractio Comes to PS4 & PS Vita on January 19

Developed by GameCoder Studios, with Bandai Namco acting as publisher, Attractio is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC on January 19.

A “mind-bending single-player game,” Attractio takes place in the Entertainment Space Station, where you solve deadly puzzles by manipulating gravity in Attractio, the popular reality show. You’ll play as three different characters, each with different abilities, and you may need to switch between them depending on the puzzle.

Bandai Namco listed the features:

Attractio’s puzzles will change the way you think of physics and gravity. In Attractio each object has its own gravity direction that can be changed by you. The interaction between objects with different gravity direction opens a wide range of routes that you can to solve the puzzles.

You will be able to play three parallel character story lines where, helped with technology like Attractio Gravity Boots and the Attractio Gravity Gun you may be able to achieve their most valuable and mysterious interests.

The interaction between objects with different gravity directions presents multiple possibilities. Thus, you can solve each puzzle in many ways.

For example:

  • Creating a zero gravity object by colliding two objects of the same weight and opposite gravity direction.
  • Softening the character’s landing with a box with gravity direction perpendicular to a wall. This happens due to the friction between the wall and the box.
  • Gravity-Boxes: A special kind of box that, when touched by another box, flips the second box’s gravity direction. This is useful to automate some mechanics in the game and perform simultaneous tasks.

On Twitter last month, GameCoder Studios announced that Attractio will support PlayStation VR when the device is released.
