    Somehow missed this one.

    Do I smell a little Portal?

    Looks interesting. Adding to my watch list. Definitely a Portal vibe going on.

    Be patient. You can except more comments in 2019 when PSVR gets a hefty price cut.

    I'm very keen on this once I get back home.

    Okay this game is bloody fantastic.

    In fact it might be the most uniquely VR experience so far.

    Played the demo and immediately bought it after.

    So you have to solve puzzles to get the "handcuffs" off your hands - is that it?

    Pretty much but in a more vindictive portal sense.

    But it's the way it uses VR and the way the gameplay works that makes it truly unique.

    If you simply did it in 2D it wouldn't work.

    The trick is that you essentially forget you have the controller on your hand and you really start sweating a little bit in a panicked sense when you can't figure it out.

    It's the cognitive dissonance that really makes it work.

    The best VR experiences are the ones that reach that point where just for a moment you forget you are in a game with a massive thing strapped to your head.

    I also really want to get this.

    I also played the demo (3 times), and was hook on the unique puzzle concepts, but then I thought, while playing the second time, I know exactly what to do now. And since there are so few puzzles (10 in total I believe), it's easy to remember them. Where as something like The Witness, there are so many of them, you would never be able to remember all the puzzles.

    So there's absolutely hardly any re-play value, after you've completed it once, unless you're going for 100% trophies.

    I think I'm gonna wait a few months for sale though, but it's on my buy list.
