Oasis Games announced they will bring the indie-developed game from Void Dimensions called Light Tracer to the west for PlayStation VR this September.

The game features a Babel-like tower where players must lead a princess to the top in order to save her ailing people. To do so, players will use a the power of a “Light Staff” to guide the princess through puzzle and platforming like systems.

Player’s assume the role of a godlike entity who can interact with the world using this Light Staff. In order to assist the princess they’ll need to manipulate the world around her and help her get from one point of the tower to the other as she ascends the levels. As the player progresses, the entity’s hidden relationship with the princess is gradually revealed.

“LIGHT TRACER brings a new style of platform game to PS VR players, offering a journey of challenging puzzles, colossal heights and artistic visuals,” said Alen Wu, Business Director at Oasis Games. “You’ll need both hands to save the Princess: one to guide her using your Light Staff and the other to spin and manipulate the mysterious tower to open a path to save her people from a tragic fate.”

The game is told over eight chapters with various puzzles including ice and gravity themed levels. Additionally, there is a boss fight at the end of every level that requires some strategy and quick reflexes.

The publisher details the features:

A New Kind of VR Puzzle Platformer: Guide the Princess through platform-style challenges with jumps, enemies and precise timing requirements while manipulating the world and solving clever puzzles that depend on your point of view—literally!

The Powers of a God: Wield your powerful Light Staff in one hand while interacting with the world with the other to open a path upward

Enchanting Graphics: A compelling, almost toy-like world comes to life as you ascend the giant tower and interact with the Princess
