Played With Fire showcased its upcoming videogame Stargaze during the digital PAX x EGX event a couple of months back. Now the studio has revealed that the PC VR title is due to be released at the end of next week.
Stargaze is a puzzle adventure with cosmic exploration at its heart, inspired by the Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Rather than travelling the cosmos instead you’re an astronomer peering at distant worlds through their telescope. Through this powerful device players will be able to view events and then manipulate them.
The telescope features physical controls so players can twist and turn the planets to solve the challenges, as well as taking pictures to help document the weird and wonderful lifeforms that inhabit these planets. These puzzles can be scientific in nature, with players having to figure out how certain phenomena connect with one another; triggering events by joining these individual elements together.
Players will need to have a keen eye to locate secret planets, hidden items and new species, whilst relaxing in their observatory surround by the stars. It looks to be a very relaxed puzzle experience. To complement the gameplay Stargaze includes an otherworldy soundtrack composed by Thomas Regin – the composer behind videogames like the Blackwell series and Unavowed.
Played With Fire will release Stargaze for Oculus Rift, Valve Index, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality headsets on 20th November 2020 via Steam. Take a look at the new trailer below and for further updates on Stargaze keep reading VRFocus.
