Developer moBack successfully pushed its sandbox building title Perplexigon through Steam Greenlight earlier in the year. The title allows players to create fantastic structures and devices using a variety of blocks. With a forthcoming updates, players can now pit their building abilities against an array of challenging puzzles.
Perplexigon allows players to use three categories of blocks to build whatever they can conceive of. The block categories consist of Structural: Cube, Wheel, Pyramid, Plat Pole and Sphere; Mechanical: Hinges, Springs, Axles, Ball joints; Action: Motors, Thrusters and Bombs. With the new update players will need to be creative in their use of available blocks to devise a way through the puzzles.
The new update also features other improvements, such as an updated tutorial, a refinement of the multiplayer mode so players experience less lag, the Teleport and Delete guns have been modified and improved for ease of use alongside other general bug fixes.
The developers have said that other updates to Perplexigon will be added in future, including such features as new environments to go alongside the current default ‘Space’ environment, such as a Medieval and Heavy Metal world, and there are some plans to add new block types to allow users to create even more bizarre devices.
A video demonstrating some of the new update features is available to view below.
Perplexigon is available on Steam Early Access for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, though Oculus Rift users will need the Touch controller, as the title is controlled using tracked motion controllers only. The development team plan to have a full release of the title available for Autumn 2017. The current price point is £14.99, though moBack have said they expect that the full version will be slightly more expensive.
