Got a Vive? Play the Demo!
Description
Rainbow Jellies is a walkaround Virtual Reality puzzle game designed for HTC Vive. It is unique in that it involves manipulation of softbody creatures and objects such as Jellyfish and Gummy Rings. You will use the Vive controllers to grab arrange elements into sequences of interactions (think Rube Goldberg contraptions) which will result in specific colors and behaviors being generated, which will complete goals and unlock new levels/creatures/objects to work with. An example puzzle might be to have all of the jellyfish pass through a yellow ring to get charged and then their tentacles will drag along a conductor to power up a lightsource. There is a meditative and relaxing nature to this game also, it is not frantic, it is more similar to "Flower" in pacing and puzzle types. As a VR experience it is extremeyl immersive and the interactions are very unique, tactile and natural. There is also the ability to turn on a "window" to the world within the experience to see through to the real world. Long term plans involve Multiplayer versions of this with IK avatars, and more complex building mechanics. There is also the potential for AR interactions using the passthrough camera on the Vive, thus bringing real world objects and elements into the game space. There are versions of this for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive which make use of the LEAP motion hand gesture recognition system as well, it is likely these will remain as options within the experience but not required.
