Babel: Tower the the Gods is a Virtual Reality, physics-based puzzle game designed around roomscale VR for the HTC Vive / SteamVR.
What Is Babel: tower to the Gods?
It’s a charming physics based puzzle game designed around room-scale VR for the HTC Vive, which will test your coordination and wits, as you battle physics while working out how to de-construct part of a tower (to the gods).
You’ll have to approach the towers from every angle walk, crouch, and even possibly jump, using a range of divine tools & weaponry to carefully disassemble & thoroughly check the stability of each unique and bizarre monument built before you, all while protecting the sacred totem, to ensure it’s safety for it’s worshippers!
There’s a variety of different types of puzzles in it, requiring a range of different skills – precision, logic, speed & more!
- Precision – Using careful movements of your Vive controllers, slide a sword between blocks and push out blocks whilst narrowly avoiding the volatile and explosive bomb blocks, which will detonate with the slightest of your touch!
- Logic – Work out the correct order & method of deconstruction! Knock out blocks simultaneously to keep the tower balance! Or, is there a large amount of blocks ontop of a slippery ice block? Give it a fast & hard whack from the side to sent it quickly sliding out of the tower without the blocks ontop falling off!
- Speed – Some towers may contain blocks that are being burnt away! Once these blocks finish burning, they’ll be reduced to ash & disappear! Solve the tower fast enough that these burning blocks don’t cause it to topple
Developed along with Bruce Slater (Art Lead), this was the first game released from my indie games company RUCE. It’s available on Steam, and received 94% positive reviews!
