Fantastic Contraption (2016), the building puzzler from indie studio Northway Games, is getting its first big update since launch, which includes double the levels and a few new tantalizing features that didn’t make the cut back in April 2016 when it hit Steam.

The free update, dubbed Version 2.0, comes with what Northway calls in a blogpost “a whole new ‘B-Side’ playlist,” which puts the game to 100 levels strong. The creators say the new levels help smooth out the introductory learning curve and add some high-end challenges in the later part of the game.

The ‘B-side playlist’ also includes a number of levels featuring all-new gameplay mechanics: contraption-destroying Cactuses, and Balloons which can carry your creations past obstacles to safety. Northway says the new features should be considered “little teasers […] things that we’ve been working on since version 1.0, way back when VR was just a baby.”

As a result of building support for several different platforms—including Vive, Rift, Windows MR, and PSVR—Northway says that on PC you’ll also be able to play Version 2.0 with a below min-spec computer. Since Valve hasn’t established a minimum spec, and only a recommended spec, we assume the studio is referring to Oculus’ Min Spec, which sets that bar at an NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti / AMD Radeon RX 470 or greater, and an Intel i3-6100 / AMD Ryzen 3 1200, FX4350 or greater (older equivalents included).

Fantastic Contraption is also seeing a 33% permanent price drop, bringing the game from $30 to $20. Check it out on Steam, Oculus Store, Microsoft Store, and PSN.
