“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.” - c't magazin
“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
Solve tricky puzzles in a world full of mysterious secrets. Make steampunk styled flowers bloom using the power of light rays to unveil new worlds. In a relaxed, no pressure environment players immerse themselves into this beautifully designed virtual reality.
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.
Carpe Lucem challenges and entertains players by transferring classical 2D puzzles into the virtual space. They learn new fascinating aspects quickly. Now puzzle elements can be moved literally in the third dimension. But not only that: They can also be arranged 360 degrees all around the player. Sounds simple but it creates a whole new way of interacting and playing mind teasing puzzle games and it is indeed a perfect introduction to Virtual Reality.
Three mystical worlds await discovery.

Can be played standing or sitting down.

This was actually one of my first true VR experiences and I was kind of shocked. This is a strategy-puzzle game with beautiful elements, and you can relax a lot with this game solving puzzles and such as well as feeling like you are actually playing a game. We all know there are lots of non interactive games in the VR market right now, and that's why I liked Carpe Lucem. Probably one of the best games to get started in the universe of VR, with exciting puzzles, a nice level editor where you can create your own levels and beatiful graphics/music. Relaxing, but still challenging.
Carpe Lucem is a very well crafted puzzle game that I've yet to fully master. This game can be very easy to very hard! Basically, there are a lot of different environments and you have to figure out the puzzle elements presented in front of you. You drag tubes to here or there, and you move on. It sounds simple but it gets very hard later on! The best part of this game has to be level editor where you can make your own levels. This is great because the game doesn't end in the single player. Making levels to challenge my friends is just as much fun as playing the game itself! Carpe Lucem is a fun and rewarding puzzler, I highly recommend it to anyone looking to try a new puzzle VR game!
