Reviews

“Carpe Lucem, from German developer Hammer Labs, shows even a simple Virtual Reality game can be an adventure into an amazing dream world. Even more fascinating: the levels were designed inside the virtual reality world using a touch controller.”

“The benefits of room-scale virtual reality are obvious in puzzle games like this.”
Polygon

“The first time I grabbed an ‘L’ pipe piece and pulled it from background to foreground in 3D and saw it rotate as it changed planes, I knew this was going to tap into a part of my brain I wasn’t used to using in puzzle games.”
PC Gamer

About This Game

Guide and adjust the light rays, change their colors to match the flowers, use mirrors, prisms, magnets, teleporters and more to direct them to where they need to be.
