Last month InnerspaceVR announced its next project after A Fisherman’s Tale, another puzzle experience called Maskmaker. A few teasing details were released but now a trailer has arrived giving you a glimpse at what’s in store.
With an art design similar to that of InnerspaceVR’s previous titles, Maskmaker‘s world is a realm ruled by the titular character. You’re his apprentice, learning his secret, magical ways of making masks. Of course, these are no ordinary masks as they allow you to “immerse yourself in the intriguing enigmatic beings within the game,” notes the studio.
This ‘mask realm’ has eight biomes, each with its own culture and mask style. These need to be learnt to open new areas as you journey to learn about Prospero, the very mysterious figure maskmaker. When you wear these masks you can blend with each locations’ culture, inhabiting spirits which have a different role to play.
You’ll be able to use his workshop to craft your first mask and then collect resources to build new ones. The trailer lets you peek inside this workshop, showcasing designs on the wall, vats of colourful dyes and the mannequin where you build your creations.
While none of the puzzles have been revealed yet expect them to be of a weird and wonderful variety, judging by the studios’ other puzzle oriented videogames.
Maskmaker is still a way off at the moment, with a release stencilled in for Q1 2021. Oculus Rift, Valve Index, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR headsets have been confirmed to support the videogame, whilst the interface and subtitles will come with English, French, German and Spanish language options.
As InnerspaceVR and MWM Interactive release further details on Maskmaker VRFocus will keep you updated.
