Thanks to a ton of hard work at Radial Games, Fantastic Contraption will be coming to PS VR next week! Here’s the announcement (reposted from the Official Playstation Blog).
Chris Floyd from Radial Games here, with an exciting message from our giant videogame zeppelin flying high overhead. We’ve been working day and night to create a most exquisite and whimsical virtual reality morsel: Fantastic Contraption for PlayStation VR!
That’s right! We’ve been having a blast creating Fantastic Contraption for PlayStation VR, and we’re excited to announce that we’ll be sharing all of our hard work with you on Tuesday, July 11th, 2017. National Fantastic Contraption Day, mark it in your calendar! It will retail for $19.99 usd with an extra launch-week-special 10%-off if you have PlayStation Plus.
Seated Gameplay Specifically Designed for PS VR – The Most Relaxing Way to Play FC!
Sure, you could stand around, windmilling your arms in our magical virtual reality wonderland, but now you have the choice to sit back and play Fantastic Contraption right from your couch! Imagine! We redesigned the gameplay experience especially for PS VR, taking advantage of the likelihood that you have a favorite place to relax in front of your PlayStation 4. We’ve included special PS VR-only features that allow you to resize and position your gameworld at the press of a button, which we’re sure you’ll find slick and amazing.
It has fast become my favorite way to play, and makes contraption-building feel a whole lot like model-making, which we are Very Big Fans of here at Radial Games.
New, Unique Levels for PlayStation VR
We have a handful of brand-new, PlayStation-exclusive levels in the release. Try your hand bouncing around some moguls, attacking a big-bricked wall, and more! We’ve designed a few challenges specifically around seated play, and we know you’ll enjoy them.
Dynamically Resize the Entire World in the Brand-New Resize Island
Welcome to Resize Island, where you can dynamically resize the entire world around you! This opens a world of customization for your preferred way to play. You can make the world really huge to fit your standing-style gameplay preferences, or shrink it all the way down to fit on your lap, where you can marvel at tiny Neko. That’s right, THE CAT RESIZES TOO. You can do anything in videogames.
PS4 Pro Enhancements
For those of you with a lovely new PS4 Pro, we’ve spiced up the game a bit extra for ya:
- 8xAA – We averaged out all those sharp corners for smoother looking curves!
- Higher-resolution textures – you can almost smell that wood-grain!
- Improved backdrops and scenery
- Additional special-effects and visual flairs
- Extra island decorations
- 125% resolution oversampling – A fancy way of saying that things look real sharp in there.
Let us know below what you’re most looking forward to, and I hope to see you having a great time with Fantastic Contraption when it launches next Tuesday!
