Cortopia Studios is set to release a brand new puzzle title ‘Down the Rabbit Hole’, a multi-platforms VR video game, their spin on the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ story. This title is scheduled for release in early 2020 on Oculus Quest, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Playstation VR, Valve Index, as well as HTC Vive Cosmos.
Down the Rabbit Hole is, not surprisingly, going to feature various characters from the famed and classical children’s story book, such as Cheshire Cat as well as Caterpillar. The plot though, is totally original. You will be play as an unnamed female character who stumbled into this whimsical and fantastical world before Alice herself did. Expect to solve a variety of puzzles as you make your way home.
The levels appear as little diorama, seemingly an emerging VR genre trend and we can draw similarity from games like Moss, The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets and Ghost Giant. You will be interacting with these diorama worlds, solving puzzles, leaning in to take closer look of the worlds from various perspective among others.
At the moment, the game is moving in the correct direction, from using the encompassing scenes to tell the story, to the various VR mechanics of interacting with the environment. We hope the gameplay will hold up in the final game.
This delightful little puzzle adventure was originally scheduled for a 2019 launch, but has been shifted to Q1 2020. No complain from me though, considering that we have more than enough VR titles to look forward to next month.
