It’s been a while since indie developer Carlos Coronado has issued an update on his upcoming exploration and puzzle-solving title, MIND: Path to Thalamus. You can expect to hear much more on the videogame in the very near future, though, as Coronado has this week confirmed the title’s release date. With development already completed, MIND: Path to Thalamus will launch on Steam on 5th August 2014.
The developer reasoned that the wait between completion and release it down to a launch trailer for the title currently being edited. MIND: Path to Thalamus is a first-person experience in which players solve puzzles by manipulating natural elements. The title features more than 30 challenges along with six different types of environmental control across 20 different landscapes.
Puzzles range from tasks such as turning day into night, summoning storms, travelling through time and more. The title will also feature in in-depth story focused on a father coming to terms with mistakes that he has made. The tale will be delivered through voice acting, of which the developer claims to have recorded over an hour of.
The Steam page for MIND: Path to Thalamus doesn’t make mention of support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) which the developer has in the past said would be integrated. If support is included, abandoned or planned for later is currently unknown, though VRFocus has reached out for comment and will let you know. The developer has also expressed interest in a PlayStation 4 version of the title with support for the Project Morpheus VR HMD.
VRFocus will continue to follow MIND: Path to Thalamus‘ progress going forward, reporting back with any more updates.
