Of the many virtual reality (VR) videogames VRFocus is still looking forward to playing in 2021, time-travelling puzzle adventure Wanderer is high up on that list. Originally slated for a Q3 launch, developers M-Theory and Oddboy have announced that the release will be delayed slightly, to later in the year. Adding some good news into the bad, the studios have released new character details and confirmed that PlayStation VR owners will be able to get their hands on a physical edition.
“The last year has been a pretty tricky one. Navigating Covid-19 and its effects while maintaining a healthy and productive environment and developing a unique game for VR has meant we’re running a bit behind on our schedule,” said the developers in a joint statement. So there’s no specific window as to when the launch will take place at the moment.
But, for those wanting more info on this interesting VR experience M-Theory and Oddboy have released a video showcasing one of Wanderer’s key characters, Samuel the Watch. A companion of lead character Asher Neumann, Samuel is fundamental in solving Wanderer’s puzzles and time travel mysteries. The video is only the first part, with more details to come in the second instalment.
As for that PlayStation VR retail version, M-Theory and Oddboy have teamed up with publisher Perp Games to bring Wanderer into players’ hands. It’ll feature not only the videogame but also an exclusive digital version of the detailed artbook.
“It’s been awesome to get this partnership with Perp off the ground. It extends our audience and is a great keepsake for fans – perhaps even one of the last first-gen PSVR games available as a physical edition. The team at Perp have been wonderful to work with and we can’t wait to get our hands on the final box!” said Sam Ramlu, Executive Producer at Wanderer.
Wanderer’s time-travelling escapades task you with saving mankind by heading to key points in history. This will see you get involved with the space race, playing music to a crowd of hippies and defending ancient civilisations. Coming to SteamVR headsets and PlayStation VR, when launch info is made available VRFocus will let you know.
