Nebulous is a physics-based puzzle game where you guide the hapless Commander Johnson through an interstellar maze. Arrange your puzzle pieces correctly and navigate multiple sources of gravity to guide the Commander through vortexes in his journey home. Featuring 40 challenging levels, this game allows players to use the Oculus Rift to control pieces by sight and intuitive hands-free controls.
Gamereactor caught up with Namazu technical director Keith Hudnall at GDC to talk shop about Nebulous. Nebulous is on the cutting edge – an Incredible Machine-type puzzler being developed for PC and Oculus Rift! Players will be able to sit back, relax, and run the hapless Commander Johnson through a gamut of harrowing situations without the burden of a physical controller.
The voices of the Steam community have been heard, officially greenlighting Namazu’s Oculus Rift space puzzler Nebulous! The official release date is still TBA, but the beta version will be ready to go by the start of the summer. Thanks for so much for the support!
