Fantastic Contraption Makes Its Way to PSVR in 2017

December 15, 2016Written by Tyler Treese

Indie developer Radial Games went to the PlayStation Blog today to reveal that their upcoming virtual reality puzzle game, Fantastic Contraption, is coming to PlayStation VR. Launching in spring of 2017, the game will have players constructing different types of contraptions in order to reach a goal. The developer also put out a brand new trailer, which you can watch above, that should give you a good feel of the gameplay.

Here’s how Radial Games’ Stephen Gray describes the upcoming PlayStation VR title over at the PlayStation Blog:

Fantastic Contraption is a virtual reality puzzle/building game which transports you to an island floating in the sky, where animals lounge on the moon and the sky whales sing. There, you must construct various weird and fantastic contraptions to trundle, climb, or throw your way to victory through 50 mind-boggling levels.

To help you along the way, you’ll have your toolbox in the form of Neko, the green cat that is powered by rainbow farts. Pull wheels, rods and more out of his back (he doesn’t seem to mind) and snap them together to make the contraption of your dreams. Build cars, tanks, catapults, conveyor belts, or maybe just some thingamajig that flails in the right direction.

The Vancouver-based developer previously released ROCKETSROCKETSROCKETS, a multiplayer-focused dogfighting title, on PlayStation 4. Other titles to the company’s credit include SteamBirds and Monster Loves YouFantastic Contraption looks to be the studio’s best work yet, and will release for PlayStation VR in the spring of 2017.
