Earlier this year at Gamescom we got a glimpse of an intriguing new VR game named Down The Rabbit Hole. Developed by Wands studio, Cortopia, the game boasted a few unique ideas that helped it stick in the mind. This new video showcases some of those features.
We just debuted this clip during our Holiday VR Showcase earlier in the week. In it, the developer walks us through an overview of its new game, which is incredibly different to Wands. Down The Rabbit Hole plays out a little like a picturebook in VR; you control an unnamed protagonist (specifically not Alice) as she explores Wonderland, completing tasks for a strange assortment of characters.
In the game, players move between panel-like scenes, navigating the protagonist from a third-person perspective. You grab roots protruding from scenes to pull yourself around environments but you can also reach into scenes to solve puzzles and occasionally you’ll also embody characters to interact with others. We also love how the video above plays with scale and utilizes some of the more familiar characters.
When we tried the game at Gamescom, we thought it had a fascinating mix of ideas, though some of its puzzles were a little on the obscure side. That could all change when we’re given the freedom to play the game outside of a demo booth, though.
Down The Rabbit Hole is due for release on PC VR, Oculus Quest and PSVR headsets in Q1 2020. Are you looking forward to tumbling into Wonderland in VR? Let us know in the comments below!
