Time Crystal - Ready for launch, still looking for testers

Hi all

I have started working on my second project now, this is currently pre aplha, working on mechanics for transporting from puzzle to puzzle and have completed a number of puzzles. Would be interested in hearing some feedback on the idea of Crystal Maze in VR and my short video below, note I set the timers to 30 seconds in two of the puzzles for the sake of length on the video.

Game Name 
Undecided, currently calling it Crystal Labyrinth

Story Line
You are a treasure hunter in search of the mystic Time Crystal, once you touch it you are locked within its grasp, to prove you are worthy of holding the Time Crystal you must complete puzzles and finally collect enough power to escape by beating the Time Crystals Labyrinth of puzzles.

Throughout the ages the Time Crystal has been protected by puzzles created by the previous Time Crystal holders. The only way to escape is to complete those puzzles in order to gain time in the final zone where you need to gather enough power crystals to break free.

Every crystal you collect along the way will buy you 15 seconds to beat the final Crystal Dome and win your free dome and ownership of the Time Crystal

Eras
Ancient Egypt
Space Age / Futuristic
Roman Empire

Puzzle Types
Mental
Physical
Skill
Mystery

Puzzles

Puzzles range from 2 - 5 mins, set in one of the time zones and one of the puzzle tpyes. Each puzzle has a leader board to beat and an overall leader board for the Crystal Dome

Looking forward to hearing any thoughts

cool!
whilst i know legally you could not use Richard O'Brien's or Tenpole Tudor's voice, if you left in support to stick in your own mp3 1 liners into a directory for it to play from time to time in a level, if your game has a fan base you may find someone would do that work for you "unofficially".

same with any music or team encouragements you may want playing at some point in the game.
just looking at the above video its lacking a bit in atmosphere

eg this makes it all more interesting imo (4m45s   (this board wont respect time stamps in a link)

and then for the final maze with music 47m35s


PS am interested in this but not asking to beta test. my man cave currently has no room for full room vr whilst house has rennovations 😞



Fiat Coupe, gone. 350Z gone. Dirty nappies, no sleep & practical transport incoming. Thank goodness for VR 🙂
