You’re invited to step into a one-of-a-kind virtual adventure featuring groundbreaking new game mechanics in a forgotten world filled with bizarre characters and wonder, inspired by ’80s fantasy films such as Labyrinth.

In The Gallery, Episode 1: Call of the Starseed, your sister Elsie has gone missing and you embark on a mysterious journey to find her. You’ll travel through environs such as derelict beaches, abandoned sewers and quirky laboratories; confront a cosmic machine that holds dark secrets; and solve puzzles unique to VR with complete freedom of movement using your body and hands.

Cloudhead Games — which features AAA talent from Bioware, Relic, Riot and EA — wants to change the way players interact with the world of VR. Through the introduction of the studio’s Blink VR locomotion mechanic with an elastic VR playspace, Cloudhead aims to deliver a 100% nausea-free play experience.

CEO Denny Unger: So many of the things we’ve done in The Gallery are completely new. There were no pre-baked solutions, no standards when we started this adventure in 2013. What we’re striving for is to give consumers a great introduction to VR and to build their excitement for the future of the medium as a whole. VR done right can make you feel like a kid again and it can give you all the excuses you need to lose yourself in the moment — to simply play!

The Gallery, Episode 1: Call of the Starseed will launch April 5th for PC and HTC Vive on Steam. Support for Oculus Touch will be made available at a date TBD.

The machine is calling…step inside.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
