'Marble Land' (ALL) Scheduled For Next Month - Screens & Trailer

In Marble Land players manipulate futuristic Rube Goldberg-inspired devices scattered across ancient ruins, to guide a blue marble to its target destination.

Marble Land is a physics-based puzzle game that was designed primarily for VR.

The purpose of Marble Land is to guide a rolling marble through a maze by bouncing it around using devices scattered thoroughout the level. The game contains 45 levels of increasing difficulty, split across three different environments: the dessert, the cave and the mountain. Players interact with the environment rather than the marble, manipulating various structures with different mechanics (changing the direction of the marble, teleporting it, etc) that affect the marble’s path with each change on the platform. Players are allowed to spawn an unlimited number of marbles while figuring out the correct configuration of the puzzle elements that would lead the marble into the target. Marble Land is an immersive and comfortable experience that aims to induce very little motion sickness.

Marble Land can be played using a gamepad or motion controllers, either as a sitting, standing or room-scale VR experience. It is also possible to play the non-VR version of the game, using a mouse and keyboard or a standard PC controller.

“With Marble Land we are trying to bring back the arcade marble run experience to players and VR technology allows us to take this experience to the next level”, said George Tudor, the CEO of Devious Technologies. ”No time limit or pressure and unlimited tries make Marble Land, a relaxing fun experience, like a walk in the park. Marble Land will appeal to all the people who want to cut down on their stress levels and escape from reality.”
