We’ve covered BRINK Traveler several times on VR Voyaging. It’s a great way to virtually visit a number of real-world locations in photorealistic detail using scans they capture and refine. They’ve just collaborated with the creators of Puzzling Places, a relaxing VR puzzle game that breaks buildings and other objects into pieces for you to assemble as a puzzle. The puzzles are all created from photogrammetry-scanned models, so they look really impressive. This collaboration uses the 3d model of The Wave (Arizona, USA) from BRINK Traveler and adds it to your collection of puzzles to assemble. Read on for more details!
BRINK Traveler is known for giving players the opportunity to virtually travel to incredible destinations, while Puzzling Places empowers players to reconstruct stunning 3D scans of historic places around the world. Created using photogrammetry scans, “The Wave” 3D puzzle offers the best of both worlds. Players can experience this iconic rock formation at their own pace, gaining intricate knowledge of its striking details as they puzzle it together piece by piece.
This premium puzzle features slow-moving cloud shadows and custom audio soundscapes with alluring desert guitar vibes. As users piece together the intricate details of this historic rock formation, they will be accompanied by a photographer character, providing a reference to understand the grand scale of the place. “The Wave” puzzle is available in multiple difficulty variants (25, 50, 100, 200, and 400 pieces), offering several hours of puzzling bliss to new players and puzzle enthusiasts alike.
“The Wave” premium puzzle is available for Puzzling Places now for $1.99 on Meta Quest, PICO, and PS VR2.
The collaboration between Puzzling Places and BRINK Traveler has been an exciting adventure in itself, bringing together two innovative worlds to create a meditative experience for users.
“We are absolutely thrilled to join forces with BRINK Traveler to unveil ‘The Wave’ to our community,” exclaimed Daniel Sproll, CEO of realities.io. “Many players have been asking for locations in US Parks, so we thought this would be a great opportunity to collaborate with a studio that is also using photogrammetry in a very unique way.”
“We’re so excited to work with Puzzling Places to feature ‘The Wave’ in a way it’s never been experienced before” said Akin Bilgic of BRINK Traveler. “This collaboration allows us to share the beauty of this iconic landmark with a whole new audience in a unique and entertaining format that really complements the experience of visiting these locations in our app.”

About Coyote Buttes and The Wave
The Wave is a stunning rock formation that resembles a giant wave of sandstone. It is located in the Coyote Buttes area of the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness in Arizona, USA. The Wave is famous for its striking visuals and intricate organic patterns, which were formed by erosion and deposition of different layers of sedimentary rocks over millions of years. This landmark is a popular destination for hikers and photographers, but access is limited by a permit system to protect its fragile beauty. (Source: https://www.thewave.info)
