Could be really interesting - and does not sound like anything I've played before. Some shots:

The game was not as great as I hoped for, but it's not bad either - something in-between. My review posted on Steam:

 

"Using Index and RTX 3090 I got solid 90 fps using res 400% - did use a 10-core i9 10900K cpu too, but gpu is the more important hardware in this game.

It's a simple 3D puzzle game - feels like having to get big pieces of a Lego set to fit. Graphics are great, and I consider this more of a game to reduce stress and to relax. Puzzle games like this are nothing new, there's really no originality to this game - apart from being in VR. I have to agree that it's much like the Tetris VR game - we've seen it all before, but graphics are great and it's still fun for a while.

Had some issues with pieces floating away or being hidden. One time did have to reset a level and lost all progress because a piece floated away and was impossible to get back. Then again, this is early access, some patience may be needed.

I'm not sure this game should cost more than $10-15, so it's probably priced just right now.

For being a simple 3D puzzle game with close to no originality I'd rate the game 6/10 - especially due to the beautiful graphics, and it's relaxing to play - just do not expect too much."

I uploaded about 20 new screenshots:

When you get close, textures still look great - devs did a fine job

Also check out the fine details here - same goes for the puzzles, where pieces have great detail

Reflections in the water look awesome

Great controller support - other devs could learn from this 😉

 

I have not yet tested if the game supports native Oculus drivers - will test my Rift CV1 later - but I think this game was made for LCD hmds, it looks great with the Index (so probably much the same with Quest 2 and Rift-S).
