Think playing with blocks is easy? Think again! PathCraft is a colourful puzzle-platformer in the tradition of 90’s classics, reimagined and built from the ground up for VR, with handtracking technology for total puzzle-solving and path-building immersion. Set within a colourful world that reflects all the brightness and charm of childhood, players must construct and reconfigure their environment to create increasingly elaborate paths that help guide their adorable papercraft friend to each level’s endpoint. Solve challenging puzzles that grow in difficulty as you progress, or take your creative talents to level-editor mode to craft your own elaborate pathways and test your friends and other players. You can even try and master the levels that others have built!

Originally designed and produced as a project for Oculus Go and in the Meta App Lab, PathCraft is the work of solo developer, Daniel Yu from Devil Cow Studio. PathCraft allows players to physically make and remake their world with their own two hands and puzzle their way to the top. Can you think outside the blocks?

Other features include:

  • An immersive, hand-crafted world that celebrates the joy and wonder of childhood imagination
  • Wholesome, appealing puzzle-platforming action that’s suitable for all ages to enjoy
  • 8 different blocks to utilize and 4 unique environments for a wider variety of puzzles and solutions
  • Unlockable new gameplay mechanics, environments, and even costumes for your robot companion
  • Level-editor mode that allows players to build and upload their own challenges for others to tackle
  • Endless replayability with new community-made levels to download and master

With a wide range of challenges for players of any skill set, PathCraft is the perfect entry point for anybody itching to try a VR title for the first time. Find PathCraft on the Meta Quest Store today!
