Today, Charm Games will release its first virtual reality (VR) for HTC Vive with FORM, a surreal puzzle experience. And to mark the occasion the studio will be offering a limited time discount as well as a new launch trailer to feast your eyes on.
Set in a remote Alaskan research facility, FORM casts 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, delving ever deeper into Dr. Eli’s mind to discover a path towards the doctors true destiny.
“FORM is driven by the game’s robust narrative that makes people think more than just how to solve complex puzzles,” said Alan Jernigan, Co-founder of Charm Games. “Story is often an afterthought in VR so we brought it to the forefront in FORM for an even greater emotional experience. However, FORM is still a game at its core so we’ve intertwined our narrative between challenging and, more importantly, entertaining puzzles that we’re sure VR gamers will enjoy.”
For today’s launch FORM has a 25 percent discount available through Steam, dropping the price from $19.99 USD down to $14.99. This offer will only be available until 8th June.
After releasing on HTC Vive, Charm Games will bring the experience to Oculus Rift and Touch in the summer and Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE’s) PlayStation VR in 2018.
