  • Summary: Statik is a VR game focused on solving puzzles in a place you're not familiar with, with a person you don’t recognize, and hands that aren’t completely yours.

    Statik is a superb example of a puzzle game, intelligent, immersive and lots of fun to play. The subtle story woven through is interesting, the puzzles challenging without being too frustrating. VR is used superbly as an integral part of the experience and not a tacked on gimmick. Definitely worth picking up for anyone who owns a PlayStation VR.

    On paper, it doesn't look particularly impressive, but you really need to strap in and feel the stress of solving one of its many puzzle boxes.

    Statik's greatest trick, among many, is to make the DualShock the star of this darkly comic puzzle game. [July 2017, p.118]

    Statik is a great puzzle game, very clever in its execution, and it overcomes all the shortcomings of the PSVR technology. It can feel pricey considering its length and replayability, but whenever you think the price is right, make sure you play it.

    It ramps up brilliantly and is nicely paced too...It might not have the intense insanity of a "Keep Talking," but it's up there with some of the best implementation of PSVR we've seen to date. [Issue#188, p.82]

    Statik is a puzzle game perfectly suited for those who are looking for a challenging experience: you will that every puzzle, despite its difficulty, has a logical solution. However, due to its nature, its difficult to recommend Statik to those who don't want to spend their time thinking times and times over about the same puzzle.

    Statik’s sheer invention and fascinating premise are somewhat betrayed by its short length. No two puzzles are the same, and they’re all well-balanced and thought-out trials, but they left me begging for more. Still, that speaks to just how enjoyable an experience this is while it lasts. The game casts a web of intrigue that will pull you in and I suspect have some people picking it apart for even longer than the initial run time. This isn’t quite PSVR’s Portal, but it wouldn’t take much for Tarsier hit that high with a sequel.

    So far the best puzzle game on PSVR. The experience is very innovative with its unique use of DS4 Controller. The puzzles are challengingSo far the best puzzle game on PSVR. The experience is very innovative with its unique use of DS4 Controller. The puzzles are challenging enough but absolutely very clear to figure out the solutions. The hidden puzzles are also well indicated that seeking a guide is not necessary.
    However it is quite short even with the alternative ending (you have to replay all 8 mission once again) and the story is yet to be clearly explained.
    -------------------
    With the lack of great experience on PSVR now, even indies, this game deserves a 9 at the moment.

Although the game is very short. It took me around 1,5-2 hours to finish it, and although it is supposed to have an alternative ending, I'm not really in the mood of replaying the puzzles.

    The time you do spend with the game is however spent in pure joy.
