It’s always fun to experiment different ways in which you can experience a game in VR. With being able to move in all sorts of ways in the virtual world, you are unbounded by the limitations that regular console games provide. Arca’s Path by Rebellion seems to take that into reference and serve a fun way to move through obstacles in VR.
In the game itself you will be following a story of a unique character and get behind her mind all while trying to get the “ball” down various terrains and obstacles.
The little girl will put on a mask that sends her into an alternate world full of mystery and character. You will transfer her consciousness into a ball and try to navigate the puzzles you see in the video above. The game itself was inspired by classic games such as Marble Madness. In Arca’s Path you will be using your head to steer the ball in the right direction.
As you progress, you will see the dangers lurking and the levels getting more difficult. The levels will reflect the different emotions that the little girl feels. While the concept of moving a ball through a level isn’t new, the developer were able to bring creativity on how you control the ball by using your HMD and leveraging the virtual platform.
Arca’s Path VR is set to release on December 4th, 2018 on The HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and PlayStation VR. Make sure to keep this title on your watch list.
