God rest your weary soul, Party Man. You were too beautiful for this world, by which I mean the colorful, virtual world of Fantastic Contraption, a puzzle game for the HTC Vive. Using the VR headset's two controllers, Fantastic Contraption allows you to stretch and connect different pieces of machinery to create a device that will get a small pink ball into a goal. Or, if you find that too taxing, it allows you to create a being of infinite dance, one incapable of supporting its own long, beautiful limbs.

You can watch Justin and I explore Fantastic Contraption and try out a few puzzles in the video posted above. We don't do a particularly good job, but that's okay! That's what the furnace is for.
