HTC Vive VR
Jugo in 3D/VR?

The Salty Dog team received an HTC Vive recently. We think the tech is fantastic. Do you want to play puzzle games in VR? We do. Let us know what you think about Jugo in VR.

Description
Release date: Early 2016
Strategy-based Puzzler
A strategy-based single-player puzzler with two players, because Jugo is always there, watching and waiting for your mistake.

Each level has a design score which may be relatively easy to beat, or not. Some are quite difficult. Can you beat them all? Can you play a perfect game, when Jugo is always ready to capitalize on any opportunity to ruin your perfect game?

Jugo likes pretty things, and in Jugo's universe pretty things are pie, and cake.

Pie and Cake
Your job is to make pie particles, which are marked with an old symbol that means pie, and omega particles, which we call cake. Omega particles are marked with an old symbol that means we are about to run out of cake.

Jugo doesn't do Math
The number particles are there to make the game look pretty smart, as if we understand math. Any particular number particle always has the same color. You can therefore use colors (instead of numbers) to make more particles, pie, and cake, and also to make the empty void which Jugo will use to access your pie and cake, if you thoughtfully or carelessly allow this. The point is to fight back against math, new or old.

How do you Win?
There is no losing in Jugo. When you fail to complete a level . . . Jugo wins! When you complete a level but don't have more points than Jugo . . . Jugo wins! And of course there is a chance you will have more points and, like, win.

Each designed level is unique and so each level has a leader-board for allowing the humans to compete against each other. Jugo himself also has a leaderboard. Don't think of it as a hall of shame, even though that is what it is.

A number of badges await your achievement.

Fourtex Jugo has controller support as well as keyboard or mouse support, and has simple configuration menus for adjusting audio and other parameters.



Bullet Points
  • Highly replayable
  • Shape, color, and sound work together for you ... or against you
  • Play to complete a level, to achieve design score, or to get a perfect game
  • Balance score against the claw
  • Levels are handcrafted by humans
  • Original art and audio
  • Leaderboards, achievements, trading cards, pie and cake
  • Optionally play in VR with HTC Vive
  • More pie and cake

I don't know about the rest of you, but I was pretty terrified. I'm a wuss.

@Khratius -Molotov you know phones with 1920*1080 resolution?
ZeHN Feb 14, 2016 @ 3:27am 
but... it's a phone game...

It's more like a command-based, turn-based game

Awesome, a game that incorporates math into a viable, fun, puzzling game! From the description, it looks pretty far developed. 8.3/10

I look forward to seeing how this game progresses.

Guess I have to with yes then. But it would be interesting to see if even the easiest levels are hard to optimize for those who know the game really well.
