Latest update

Version 2 of Dimensional has introduced "Arcade Mode" you can now instantly jump to any challenge in the game and also tag your favourites to create a playlist that you friends can play. The game should now be a great way to demo what VR is capable of.

About This Game

A first-person, narrative-driven puzzle game. Dimensional throws you into dangerous chambers to save an alien race. This is not a passive experience. To succeed, you'll have to feel and act as though you're really there. You'll be standing, moving around, manipulating objects with realistic physics and reacting to dangers.

  • Nausea-free - a very comfortable experience that won't make you feel sick
  • Real-life movement - walk, duck, dodge, lean, jump to avoid obstacles and search your environment. Only 1.2m x 50cm required to play. Full room-scale supported.
  • Puzzles - you'll need brains, reflexes and precision to beat the chambers
  • Explore - find the hidden messages and learn the truth
  • Mic support - expect to be heard as well as seen
  • Choice - teleporting for comfort + optional FPS-style controls

More than just puzzles and action, I'm trying to put you in a variety of unique situations that can only be appreciated in VR. There's lots to experience and I have plenty more ideas coming. Here are just a few examples of what you can experience today:

  • Slide along a narrow ledge as a giant pendulum swings inches from your face
  • Test your courage by jumping off a high walkway. You're told a trapdoor will instantly rise to save you from the spikes far below
  • Carefully move your head through a narrow gap filled with spikes
  • Knock blocks out of a wall without bringing the roof crashing down on your head

There's a story for you to find. It's up to you if you want to find the hidden messages and work out what's going on, or just play through the levels and complete the puzzles.

Optional FPS-style controls

The most recent announcement was that the nausea-free locomotion system that uses physical movement and teleporting is being enhanced to optionally allow FPS-style controls to be used. The feature will be disabled by default but can be enabled by players that have become accustom to controller based movement in VR.

Optional microphone features

Another update describes how the microphone can be used to bring your voice in to the game and affect the actions of game characters. The video below shows how it works and gives examples of how it can be used in the game to interact and pass obstacles.
