Psychedelic Sci-Fi Virtual Reality Game FORM From Charm Games to Launch on HTC Vive June 1
Vancouver-based Independent Video Game Studio to Also Release New VR Puzzle Game on Oculus Touch Soon After
Vancouver – May 23, 2017 – Get ready to discover the depths of inner consciousness as independent video game developer Charm Games announces today that its surreal, virtual reality puzzle game, FORM, will come to HTC Vive on June 1 for $19.99 and for one week FORM will be available for a discount. In addition, FORM will release on Oculus Touch soon and on PlayStation VR in early 2018.
Set in a remote Alaskan research facility, players guide Dr. Devin Eli, a brilliant physicist with superhuman powers of geometric visualization, on a VR journey to uncover the secrets behind a recently discovered ancient artifact, The Obelisk. As Dr. Eli, players will solve stimulating puzzles and explore surreal environments built from Dr. Eli’s memories, dreams and fears.
In FORM players assemble puzzle pieces, unlock doors and open rifts to alternative realities. While advancing through the game, puzzles and environments become more complex and intertwined, accessing the deeper and more distant recesses of Dr. Eli’s mind. By solving these puzzles and “unlocking” the constraints of Dr. Eli’s mind, players will ascend through progressively higher levels of consciousness to discover a path toward Dr. Eli’s true destiny.
“FORM is about exploring reality through rich narrative in breathtaking dreamlike environments,” said Alan Jernigan, Co-founder of Charm Games. “With no death or time constraints, players are free to investigate the surroundings and solve mysteries at their own pace. Thanks to our focus on comfort and intuitive controls, people can play either seated or standing and with zero motion sickness.”
