After releasing on PlayStation 4 earlier this year, the pretty tinker-em-up GNOG is headed to PC and Mac next month, and it’s bringing VR support with it.

GNOG looks like candy that I never want to eat. Not because it’s not tasty, mind, I’m sure it’s very tasty. But will you just look at it? It looks so smooth and pretty and adorable all at once. If you own a PlayStation 4, you may have already sampled some of this treat, but if you’re using a computer, your chance is coming up fairly soon.

According to the game’s official Steam page, GNOG is coming out in November on PC and Mac. No specific release date has been announced yet. We do know, however, that the game will support virtual reality headsets, just like it supported PS VR on the PS4. Supported VR platforms will include HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and OSVR. The ‘play area’ is listed as Seated, which makes sense as GNOG is a fairly point-and-click affair and doesn’t involve walking.

Here’s the official blurb on what the game is:

GNOG is a 3D puzzle game set in a tactile world of toys and secrets. Point, click, grab, poke, spin, pull, and play with uniquely charming monster heads as you explore the hidden worlds inside them. Filled with eye-catching designs, playful interactions, and a rich, reactive soundtrack, the hand-crafted heads come to life in either standard play or in VR.

GNOG’s PS4 version holds a 73 rating on OpenCritic and a 77 on MetaCritic. For more information, do have a look at our previous coverage of the game, back when we learnt when it was coming out on the PS4.
