With Gamescom starting tomorrow, indie developer Mindfield Games has revealed some new screenshots for its upcoming virtual reality title (VR) Pollen, which the studio has previously confirmed will be at the event along with a new demo.
Pollen is set on Saturn’s sixth and largest moon, Titan. Players will find themselves in Research Station M on the moon’s surface, taking the role of a replacement employee for a space mechanic that has disappeared on a Saturnine moon station. You have to explore the facility and unravel the story and fate of the crew that once occupied it. The title takes inspiration from iconic sci-fi movies such as 2001: A Space Odyssey.
The videogame had previously been given a 2015 release date but that has now slipped to Q1 2016 due to the team adding further undisclosed features. Pollen has been confirmed for the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and OSVR head-mounted displays (HMD) as well as the Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) Project Morpheus when it arrives later in 2016. As VRFocus reported yesterday, Mindfield Games are also bringing the title to PC, Mac and Linux systems as a standard non-VR videogame.
VRFocus will continue to report on the progress of Pollen as Mindfield Games releases further information.
