As virtual reality (VR) developers were discovering the best ways to create comfortable experiences back in 2016, Turbo Button released a delightful puzzle title called Floor Plan where players could navigate through a weird building staying entirely in the elevator. Next month sees the launch of its sequel, Floor Plan 2, greatly expanding upon the adventure.
In Floor Plan 2 you play someone who has just started a new job and tasked by your new boss to hunt through the building to find a treasure that could save the company. Just like the original, this comedic adventure involves a less than normal elevator that takes you to some very strange worlds and their odd inhabitants. The big difference this time is that you can leave the elevator.
Built around escape room-style puzzle mechanics, Floor Plan 2 will have you solving interconnected puzzles, where the solution to the room you’re in isn’t necessarily on the same floor. As you’re now able to step out of the elevator Floor Plan 2 is set to offer greater interactivity with its series of worlds, where nobody speaks a discernable language so you’re on your own to figure out what’s going on.
Turbo Button says there are over four hours of content to play through, and once you’re done you can revisit completed puzzles to find they’ve been remixed to provide a new challenge. An important trait considering a lot of puzzle titles are one and done affairs.
It’s been a while since Turbo Button’s last VR title which was Along Together, a single-player adventure that came to Google Daydream before being ported to other headsets in 2018. So Floor Plan 2 will be a welcome return for the team, bring their own particular mix of light-hearted humour and intricate puzzles.
Floor Plan 2 is due for release on 1st April (yes really, no joke) supporting Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Valve Index and Windows Mixed Reality headsets, retailing for $24.99 USD. As further updates are released, keep reading VRFocus.
