There’s less than a month to go until InnerspaceVR and MWM Immersive launch Maskmaker for multiple virtual reality (VR) platforms. Occasionally, PlayStation VR owners are treated to a physical edition usually thanks to Perp Games and that’s going to be the case again. It’s been revealed that Maskmaker will hit retail locations in June.
Maskmaker is gearing up to be one of the more interesting VR puzzle titles to be released in the first half of 2021, with a decent narrative weaving the various mechanics and worlds into a cohesive whole. As VRFocus has previously reported, you play mask maker Prospero’s apprentice, learning the craft and the magical abilities it brings. Inside his workshop you’ll be able to carve masks before applying them with paints and other adornments. These have to be found in the different biomes which can only be traversed by making new masks.
Naturally, the masks form an intrinsic part of the puzzle process as you locate various level guardians to copy their masks and possess them. All the while learning about the mysterious Prospero and the truth behind this identity.
“The team at Perp Games are some of the most passionate people we’ve encountered in the gaming industry, and it was a natural fit to partner with them to publish a physical edition of Maskmaker,” said Ethan Stearns, executive vice president at MWM Interactive in a statement. “For many gamers, there is something special about being able to collect physical discs of their favorite games, and we can’t wait for players to get their hands on Maskmaker.”
“A Fisherman’s Tale is such an amazing game and worthy winner of all the acclaim and plaudits,” said Rob Edwards, Managing Director at Perp Games. “InnerspaceVR have proved that they are one of the best VR development studios around, and it is with great pride that we are working with them and MWM Interactive on their new title, the wonderful Maskmaker.”
The physical edition of Maskmaker for PlayStation VR is due to be released on 18th June 2021. The digital version for HTC Vive, Valve Index, Oculus Rift (Oculus Quest via Link cable) and PlayStation VR arrives on 20th April. VRFocus will continue its coverage of Maskmaker, reporting back with further updates.
