DeMagnete is an upcoming VR puzzle game that has seemingly appeared out of nowhere. In development by a medium-sized indie team called BitCake Studio of about 11 people in Brazil (according to a Reddit post) DeMagnete is an adventure about solving physics puzzles using magnets.
At the start of DeMagnete you wake up in a strange new place as a woman named D with no recollection of how you got there and must find a way out with help from a robotic companion named Q. The current plan is to release DeMagnete for Rift, Vive, and PSVR later this year with over 40 puzzles.
According to the studio’s YouTube description:
DeMagnete VR is a puzzle adventure inspired by magnetism, built from the ground up for virtual reality. Use your magnetic-powered gloves to solve puzzles and make your way to the top of a mysterious underground cavern. DeMagnete VR presents a variety of original magnetism mechanics that evolve with every chamber, as you find out more about what’s happening around you.
In DeMagnete, each hand controls one magnetic pole, Positive and Negative. You use your hands to interact with objects in the environment, following basic rules of physics and magnetism: opposites attract, but likes repel. There are a variety of magnetic objects, like boxes, barriers, propulsors, etc. Each puzzle is built combining these objects and real physics rules to create new mechanics.
If you watched the trailer and thought the voice sounded familiar that’s because you’re hearing none other than award-winning voice actress Ashley Burch (Horizon Zero Dawn and Life is Strange) so it definitely has some real talent behind it.
