Tetris Effect Weekend Demo and Mini-Documentary Feed Your Addiction to Stack Blocks

Tetris will not die. It’s an 80s horror movie villain that just keeps getting back up with a new release every few years. That’s not a criticism, mind you. There is something perpetually engaging in finding a better way to stack different shapes, to reach that next level, and watch them disappear when you find that perfect fit.

If you want a new way to experience the classic, Tetris Effect is releasing on November 9th, and it brings a new trick. You still have the same Tetris goodness, but you have dynamic backgrounds, music, and effects. The real twist is that you can play it completely in VR if you want.

If you want to try a little VR Tetris, there is a trial this weekend, before the launch. You can play three of the Journey Mode stages and two of the Effect Modes. Two other modes will be available as well. It will only run during the weekend, but you can download it now and play it until November 5th.

The developers know that Tetris is just as much phenomenon as it is a game, and, sometimes, that feeling and vision expands outside the game. A short documentary was made to describe the “Tetris Effect”. It focuses on comments from players, the zen qualities of the game, and the neuroscience and philosophy behind why we enjoy the game. Even if you hate documentaries, but like Tetris, you should give it at least a minute. It’s a quality presentation.

Tetris Effect will be available November 9th.
