‘Fantastic Contraption’ 2.0 Update Brings New Content and Features, Lower Price

Latest news

    Fantastic Contraption (2016), the building puzzler from indie studio Northway Games, is getting its first big update since launch, which includes double the levels and a few new tantalizing features that didn’t make the cut back in April 2016 when it hit Steam.

    The free update, dubbed Version 2.0, comes with what Northway calls in a blogpost “a whole new ‘B-Side’ playlist,” which puts the game to 100 levels strong. The creators say the new levels help smooth out the introductory learning curve and add some high-end challenges in the later part of the game.

    The ‘B-side playlist’ also includes a number of levels featuring all-new gameplay mechanics: contraption-destroying Cactuses, and Balloons which can carry your creations past obstacles to safety. Northway says the new features should be considered “little teasers […] things that we’ve been working on since version 1.0, way back when VR was just a baby.”

    As a result of building support for several different platforms—including Vive, Rift, Windows MR, and PSVR—Northway says that on PC you’ll also be able to play Version 2.0 with a below min-spec computer. Since Valve hasn’t established a minimum spec, and only a recommended spec, we assume the studio is referring to Oculus’ Min Spec, which sets that bar at an NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti / AMD Radeon RX 470 or greater, and an Intel i3-6100 / AMD Ryzen 3 1200, FX4350 or greater (older equivalents included).
