Finish Call of the Starseed to unlock Elsie's Glove in Heart of the Emberstone!

We know there's a few of you out there who have yet to finish Call of the Starseed. Maybe you were stuck on the beach (hint:shoot the bells!). Or maybe it was the fuse puzzle (hint:small tubes = paths with 1 wire, tall tubes = paths with 2+ wires!). But either way, we'd like to offer a fun incentive to finish the game before the release of Episode 2: Heart of the Emberstone this September!

Anyone who has already finished Call of the Starseed, or finishes it this summer (such as while the game is 50% off), will unlock an exclusive new glove skin for use in Episode 2. The Gallery has always been about putting YOU in the adventure, and we feel this new customization option will add a little flair to your journey. Your sister may be missing, but that doesn't mean her style has to be!

For reference, here's what the gloves currently look like in the game:

And here's the new glove skin you'll unlock for finishing Call of the Starseed:

If you're looking to add a little adventure to your summer this year, you know where to start!

The Gallery Episode 2 Will Release In September

The Gallery - Episode 2: Heart of the Emberstone will release this September.

That’s 3 months from now, or the videogame equivalent of a third trimester—but I’ve been advised not to take the pregnancy metaphor further. Or use at it all. Shit.

The good news is that we’ve got a big beautiful project in the oven. Heart of the Emberstone is a much larger experience than Episode 1—in both playtime and scope—even larger than we expected. This new date will allow us to add in all sorts of extra details to really flesh out the world the way we want to. Heart of the Emberstone is a story-driven, non-linear adventure game built for roomscale VR. There’s not a whole ton of those out there right now, so we’re taking the opportunity to do it right the first time.

If you already own Call of the Starseed, and haven’t yet played it, we’re going to have to sit you down and give you “The Talk.” If you don’t have Call of the Starseed (or you’re just a very generous friend), we can neither confirm nor deny that Starseed will be at a significant sale price during a sale that may or may not be related to summer. I don’t have a PHD in statistics, but we have an 87% positive rating here on Steam, which means there’s a decent to good chance you’ll enjoy the game. Plus, you get our original soundtrack, composed by Skyrim’s Jeremy Soule, for free.

If you have played the first episode, we’d love to give away a couple keys for Emberstone when it releases this September to some of our fans. Just comment your favourite moment playing The Gallery and we’ll send a message to our favourite commentor at the end of the day. We’ll also give you an extra Starseed key to gift to a friend or trade for the hide of a rare Scandinavian leopord.

Without the support of our fans and the Steam community, we’d never be able to make the kind of ambitious project that Heart of the Emberstone is. We’ve received a ton of love and support here on our Steam forums in the multitude of “where is Episode 2” threads, and we’re pumped to finally confirm that it’s coming. For real. This September.

Thank you for sticking with us through this adventure. It’s going to be freaking rad.

“My favorite Vive game so far, The Gallery: Call of Starseed, exemplifies the capabilities of the hardware and VR in general.”
PC Gamer

“By the end I was literally awe struck standing in the middle of my living room, mouth agape, desperately wishing for more. Call of Starseed may very well be one of the, if not the, most polished VR game I’ve ever played.”
Upload VR

“Gallery’s greatest strength is capturing the breathless feeling of a Goonies-esque adventure. It’s exhilarating (and sometimes frightening) to physically tread across abandoned beaches and crawl through strange old sewers. And that’s only the beginning of a ride that gets a lot more fantastical as it goes on.”
