Bonelab, indie VR sandbox action game, official artwork

[Update]: Bonelab has now arrived, and just as expected, it's as janky as it's fascinating.

Much like its predecessor Boneworks, the upcoming Bonelab is a VR, physics-based action game featuring levels filled with all sorts of doodads for you to mess around with, or even utilize in combat. As you would expect from a 'sequel', Bonelab will bring with it a greatly improved physics system, a larger variety of weapons and toys to chuck at enemies, as well as a brand new batch of arenas, obstacles courses and sandboxes to experiment with.

The most exciting feature by far is the ability to import a custom avatar in order to play through the game looking however you want... with the physical stats and viewpoint to match! As such, you can transform yourself into everything from an extremely small, fast and nimble character to someone so massive and bulky they could probably knock out Executioner Smough from Dark Souls without breaking a sweat.

You can get a pretty good idea of what Bonelab looks like in action, as well as how the transformation system works, trough the freshly posted release trailer. Have a gander, it's quite an interesting one:

If any of this looks like something you'd love to mess around with, you thankfully won't have to wait all that long in order to dive in! I say this because Bonelab will be launching onto the Quest 2 and SteamVR the very next week, on September 29th!

Once it arrives I'll make sure to let you know. Until then you can read a few more tidbits about Bonelab over at Steam. Enjoy!
