Oasis Games Ltd. is inviting players to take possession of celestial powers and a magical light staff as they transport themselves to the grand adventure that awaits in Light Tracer. Following its debut on PlayStation VR, the virtual reality (VR) exclusive Light Tracer is now available for HTC Vive via Steam, with an Oculus Rift compatible edition set to launch later this month.
In Light Tracer, players can aid the enchanting princess as she scales the Babel-esque towers, in search of a cure for a cruel disease in this unique puzzle platform videogame. Using godlike powers players will wield a Light Staff and manipulate views for better interactions. The videogame combines platform-style movement and a variety of puzzles with unique play mechanics. Players will direct the Princess through action-platform stages using jumping skills, precise timing and strategic attacks using the Princess’ sword to get around enemies.
The Princess’ journey comprises eight varied chapters where she will encounter rock-throwing trolls, a world of snow, slippery ice and new monsters to fight; each ending with a challenging boss battle. To celebrate the princess’ journey into an even broader virtual world, Oasis Games and Void Dimensions have improved on the magical worlds and the experience that awaits in Light Tracer for both the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift releases with enhanced graphics and a more ‘natural’ control system.
Having made its debut on PlayStation VR in October last year, VRFocus delivered a review of Light Tracer, stating: “The art and graphics are beautiful, slightly stylised and cartoonish in a way that suits the feel and atmosphere of the title perfectly. The music is also nicely done, a pleasant background that while mildly repetitive, never becomes grating.”
Developed by Void Dimensions and published by Oasis Games, Light Tracer is available for $14.99 USD on Steam and $11.99 on the PlayStation Store. The Oculus Rift version will launch at a currently unspecified date late in January 2018, available via the Oculus Store, and VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest VR titles from Oasis Games.
