Go behind the scenes with mystical VR survival adventure Song in the Smoke

Press Releases

In case you missed it over the manic weekend that kicked off E3, acclaimed indie developer 17-BIT (GALAK-Z, Skulls of the Shogun) just released a brand new behind the scenes look at their upcoming VR survival adventure Song in the Smoke. Directed by Japanese gaming documentarian studio Archipel, an abridged version of this documentary premiered during Upload VR’s Showcase, but the full 9-minute version can be viewed right here:

Coming to PlayStation VR, Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift this year, Song in the Smoke immerses players in a mysterious prehistoric world full of strange beasts where they must craft, forage, hunt, and fight to survive.

Song in the Smoke utilizes VR to its full potential, allowing players to expertly identify threats with sound, sight, and smell. Use the world to your advantage, and stalk your prey from the tall grass. Intuitive VR controls let you line up the perfect shot with your bow, but be careful to listen out for the creatures that may be hunting you, or else you’ll have to fight for your life with clubs, sticks, or anything else you can get your hands on. 

With art by famed illustrator Katsuya Terada (The Legend of Zelda, Blood: The Last Vampire, The Monkey King), Song in the Smoke creates a primordial wilderness unlike any other. Part survival game and part mysterious adventure, Song in the Smoke’s fantastical creatures and stylized scenery lend an eerie, otherworldly tone to an experience that’s both action-packed and intimate.
