Stress Level Zero launches virtual reality game Bonelab today as the latest entry in the experimental physics series.

Previous title maker Boneworks is back with simulation gameplay and physics interaction. One of the most notable features of Bonelab is that you can modify it. The new title is making its debut on the Meta Quest 2 and other PC virtual reality headsets.

The company said that the first section of the game provides a quick demo of the basic concepts and combat before entering the main lab environment where the options open up. Players from the lab can try out a variety of different levels to play and explore. After playing at least three levels, players can solve the crane puzzle and then find a way to the third part of the game.

The final sequence of levels may take some time and will introduce a variety of newer concepts. After that, players can continue to return to the physics sandbox, which contains a large number of unlockable objects.

In Bonelab, you have to eliminate skeletons and zombies creatively.

Bonilab’s class narrative is perfectly aligned with the Bonworks story. Stress Level Zero may be familiar to early VR fans, having created Hover Junkers all the way back in 2016.

Boneworks originally appeared in 2019. This title earned Steam’s Best of VR Platinum in 2019 and every year since.

The title represents the ongoing evolution of Stress Level Zero’s Marrow1 Virtual Reality Physics Foundation, which was originally developed for Boneworks. By expanding and polishing the mechanics, Bonelab is pushing it further into simulation by offering a seamless transition between avatars and vehicles and improved physical tuning, the company said.

The basic idea is that you have to explore a mysterious laboratory full of weapons, enemies, challenges and secrets. You have to escape from your reality and evade death sentence for being an outcast. You can also explore user generated levels.

You have to find a way to a research facility hidden underground deep beneath the city of MythOS. Players will face a series of challenging trials and discoveries throughout the adventure. Using a variety of melee and exotic physics weapons, players have to engage enemies and solve puzzles with a full arsenal. Custom avatar import enables more gaming experiences for players by providing identical actual stats adjustments.

In parallel, next-generation virtual reality game consoles are now being sold in large quantities. Last year, Oculus alone sold more VR headsets than Microsoft sold Xbox. According to market researcher IDC, annual sales of virtual reality devices overall rose more than 92% in 2021 with annual shipments expected to reach 50 million units by 2026. Of course, it may be more difficult now that Meta is affected by rising inflation and a shortage led Spare parts will boost the price of the Meta Quest 2 headphones by $100 this fall.

Zero Stress Level is supported by Transcend Fund.
