Announced at Oculus Connect 6 this week was a new title from Stress Level Zero, the studio behind Hover Junkers (2016) and Duck Season (2017). The game, which is said to arrive on Oculus Quest sometime next year, is slated to take place in the same universe as the studio’s upcoming physics-based adventure Boneworks.

Teased during the opening keynote, the game is basically a complete mystery at this point, although the same can be said for Boneworks, which is slated to launch sometime in Q4 of 2019.

The title ‘Project 4′ was  flashed on the screen, but it’s not clear at this time whether that’s the actual name of the game, or if it’s simply a placeholder.

Stress Level Zero describes Boneworks as an “Experimental Physics VR Adventure” where you scavenge physics-based weapons, tools, and objects to fight across dangerous playscapes and mysterious architecture.

Physics-based interactions tend to be pretty CPU-intensive, so slimming down the experience to fit into Quest’s modest Snapdragon 835 will certainly be something to see.  We’re hoping to learn more about Project 4 in the coming months. As always, we’ll keep you updated, so check back soon.
