Update – Fantastic Contraption will be released on 11th of July
Fantastic Contraption from Northway Games started life as an online physics based, 2D puzzle game. This addictive building game had one simple objective; build a contraption to transport a ball to a goal. Millions of people have played it since its release in 2008. Now it has been redesigned to become a fully-fledged virtual reality game which is coming to PlayStation VR thanks to Radial Games.
The game uses simple tools: spinning wheels and two types of rods, a bit like the classic wooden Tinkertoys come to life. On each level you have to get a ball to a goal area, but there’s never a “right” answer. Working cars, tanks, catapults, conveyor belts, walking creatures or minimalist structures that use only gravity. These contraptions are life sized, right there in front of you, beside and behind you. Imagine walking around a grassy island floating in the sky, building a machine the size of a horse with your own hands, then watching it roll out into the world. Every level is infinitely replayable – this is a VR experience you and your friends will play for hours.

Fantastic Contraption is available from July 11th.
