Part of UploadVR's showcase today included VR title Gravity Lab. Footage shown included numerous physics tests with experimental objects. "No matter how fast or how heavy your objects are," the game claims, "we can move them!" Developed and published by Mark Schramm, players can build their own Rube Goldberg machines utilizing the interface and interact with an abandoned low-gravity environment. A release is planned for 2020, though a definitive date has not been announced. In the meantime, players with a VR headset can enjoy it in Early Access now via Steam, the Windows Store, and Oculus Home. Supported devices include the Rift, Rift S, Quest, Index, Vive, and WMR. Gravity Lab on Steam also currently supports native OpenVR and native OVR. This will help ensure the best possible performance on both Vives and Rifts.
Gravity Lab has invited the player to their testing facility. Though the staff have already evacuated, there's no reason the player can't enjoy themselves using its testing equipment. Gravity Lab, of course, warns the player that such strong gravitational forces may cause "severe brain damage." The single-player experience includes a level editor and uses a room-scale setup, letting players roam around in a predefined space.
Does Gravity Lab scratch the physics playground itch you've had lately? Have you wanted to set up a complicated machine to set up a simple task? Look forward to Gravity Lab's release later this year. Let us know in the comments below what you plan to build, and be sure to check back with us here at TechRaptor in the future for any further Gravity Lab and VR news. Be sure to check out the Quest VR trailer below.
The irreverent humor of the testing facility elicits strong Portal vibes. If you liked the writing in that series, this definitely looks like a title to keep an eye on.
