Indie videogame studio Charm Games has announced today that its upcoming virtual reality (VR) title, FORM, will release on Steam for HTC Vive on 1st June 2017.
A surreal puzzle videogame, FORM is set in a remote Alaskan research facility, with players in the role of Dr. Devin Eli, a physicist with superhuman powers of geometric visualization, taking them on journey to uncover the secrets behind a recently discovered ancient artifact, The Obelisk. As players explore surreal environments built from Dr. Eli’s memories, dreams and fears they’ll have to assemble puzzle pieces, unlock doors and open rifts to alternative realities.
As players access the deeper and more distant recesses of Dr. Eli’s mind the puzzles and environments become more complex and intertwined allowing them to ascend through progressively higher levels of consciousness to discover a path toward Dr. Eli’s true destiny.
“FORM is about exploring reality through rich narrative in breathtaking dreamlike environments,” said Alan Jernigan, Co-founder of Charm Games. “With no death or time constraints, players are free to investigate the surroundings and solve mysteries at their own pace. Thanks to our focus on comfort and intuitive controls, people can play either seated or standing and with zero motion sickness.”
FORM will come to HTC Vive on 1st June for $19.99 USD with a one week discount available. Additionally, Charm Games plans to release the title on Oculus Touch soon and on PlayStation VR in 2018.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of FORM, reporting back with any further updates.
