To coincide with the launch of Meta’s new flagship headset, Quest 3, Cubism is rolling out a targeted update aimed at enhancing user experience and expanding its mixed reality capabilities. The game, first introduced in 2020 as a Virtual Reality experience, has been gradually incorporating mixed reality features, making today’s update a significant leap in that direction.
Mixed Reality Features
Today’s update introduces two groundbreaking mixed reality features aimed at seamlessly integrating the game’s puzzles with the real environment. The first feature allows for the use of Quest’s Space Setup to incorporate your real table or desk into the gameplay, making it a natural part of the Cubism universe. The second feature enables puzzle persistence using Quest’s Spatial Anchors, so the most recently played puzzle will be available at its last played physical location when you restart the game. Both features aim to enhance immersion and blur the lines between the virtual and the real world.
Quality of Life Improvements
Several quality of life enhancements are also part of the update. An improved render scale is introduced to take advantage of Quest 3’s higher resolution and computing power, providing a sharper visual experience. Additionally, a new recenter button has been added to allow easier positioning of the puzzles within the game environment, simplifying the experience for users.
As Cubism continues to evolve, the new features announced today reflect the game’s commitment to leveraging emerging technology. Whether it’s providing table-top haptic feedback or allowing the puzzles to become a real part of your environment, Cubism aims to stay at the forefront of mixed reality gaming.
