Runes: The Forgotten Path Heading to Kickstarter in April

It’s been almost a year since Stormborn Studio’s Runes: The Forgotten Path graced the pages of VRFocus, previewing the virtual reality (VR) title in an early form. Now the developer has announced an upcoming Kickstarter campaign for the project, as well as a new teaser trailer.

Runes: The Forgotten Path is a fantasy VR adventure videogame where you play as Leth, a powerful wizard trying to escape from the Oblivion, a magical sleep prison of the mind, trapped inside by the tyrannical order of the Panopticon. Using powerful spells and wits you’ll need to fight enemies, solve puzzles and pursue the recollection of all your lost memories.

Using the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift motion controllers, players cast spells by drawing symbols in the air. Stormborn Studio locomotion system named “4th Wall”, combining first-person gameplay with 3rd person movement. Close interactions such as fighting and solving with puzzles happen in 1st person whereas roaming the world can takes place in 3rd person perspective to reduce any discomfort in VR.

After opening up the studio last summer and giving all of our time and dedication to the game, we realized
our dream was finally coming true,” said Alejandro Castedo of Stormborn Studio. “This game is the product of a long and hard adventure and now we want to finish it in the right way. The Kickstarter is the final push needed to make this game as we envisioned the first time we put a VR headset on and we want you to share this amazing adventure with us!”

The Kickstarter will launch on 27th April, with Stormborn releasing more details on the campaign closer to the time.
