Unbinary is a neat little VR puzzle game where you play as a robot navigating test rooms. The robot is accompanied by a disembodied voice talking you through the testing procedures. The story gives off a similar vibe to Portal. The game play is pretty different in that the robot can switch face plates to give itself new powers. The green mask lets the you open doors and activate switches locked behind scanners while the yellow mask lets you grab objects and climb ladders. The game will take roughly thirty minutes to complete on your first attempt and new content will be added later as the game is in early access.
Using the Oculus Quest 2 controller as reference.
X – Rotate Camera Left
A – Rotate Camera Right
Analog Sticks – Show movement cursor
Y/B – Move to movement cursor location
Triggers – Grab objects
I’ve found the best way to move is to hold Y/B as you move the analog stick and then let go to teleport once you have found a suitable location with the cursor.
You will be reaching forward and sometimes standing up so you will need standing space and about an arm’s length of space cleared in front of you.
You are moving around the map and you can occasionally go through walls and objects creating a sense of disorientation so if you are sensitive to VR you may want to be a little cautious as you play this game and take your time moving around.
