Casting virtual spells just got a lot easier! Today, our VR puzzle game Hidden Fortune received the Wand Update, which fully integrates the all-new Gear VR Controller into gameplay via an enchanted virtual wand.
Watch the Wand in action in the new Gear VR Controller trailer!
Upon the Controller’s reveal in March, our dev team explored innovative ways to incorporate the orientation-powered device into their gameplay. Enter the Wand: a mystic artifact that enables seamless interaction with the world of Hidden Fortune.
Orienting intuitively to the Controller in your hand, the Wand offers immersive new ways to explore your environment, solve puzzles, and gather treasures. We think you guys will love the new element of control this feature adds!
Reel items in by targeting them and pressing the Controller’s touchpad, or press and hold to cast an enchanted tether and use interactive objects from afar. The Controller’s trigger casts Orbs, just like the tapping the headset touchpad.
The first chapter of Hidden Fortune, featuring the all-new Wand, is available now for $3.99 USD on Samsung Gear VR, powered by Oculus. Check it out, and let us know what you think of the Wand!
