Take your first brave step into virtual reality and explore The Gallery: Episode 1 — Call of the Starseed, an official launch title on HTC Vive. Developed by Cloudhead Games, a studio known for innovation in the VR space and brought to life by AAA talent ranging from Bioware, Relic, Riot and EA, The Gallery is a first-person narrative adventure, built from the ground up for VR.
“Cloudhead Games is among a select group of VR creators with the depth and experience to do VR right. They are a pioneer of this medium, engaging and immersing the player at every turn,” said HTC SVP of Virtual Reality Rikard Steiber. “The Gallery is a truly awe-inspiring experience and we couldn’t be happier to partner with Cloudhead Games to bring it to the Vive as one of our premier launch titles. It’s a must-have for any Vive owner.”
The Gallery channels inspiration from dark fantasy adventure films of the 1980s such as Goonies or Labyrinth, filled with environments and mechanics specifically crafted for virtual reality with full motion-control and room-scale. Players traverse richly detailed VR environments such as derelict beaches, abandoned sewers, quirky laboratories and a mysterious machine using Cloudhead’s Blink Locomotion system, in one of the first commercially announced, fantasy adventure VR game franchises.
“We are thrilled to be working closely with HTC to help bring exceptional content to this new and extremely fun platform,” said Cloudhead Games CEO, Denny Unger. “So many of the things we’ve done in The Gallery are completely new. There were no pre-baked solutions, no standards when we started this adventure in 2013. Playing the Vive makes you feel like a kid again — and, simply have fun!”
In The Gallery, you are in a desperate bid to find your missing sister, Elsie, and will embark on a mysterious adventure filled with bizarre characters, and a cosmic machine filled with dark secrets. Solve puzzles unique to VR with complete freedom of movement using your body and hands. Enjoy a captivating score by award-winning composer Jeremy Soule.
