30% Sale and Localization - v1.32

Hi there,

As you might already have been noticing Pavilion is currently 30% OFF until the end of the week. So if you haven't bought it yet or you want to recommend it to a friend or such, now is the time!

We've also put a big update with localization - French, Italian, German, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Japanese, Korean, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese - so now you can change access the language menu from the options in the main menu. Except for the localization, there's also a bunch of bug fixes and improvements as usually.

Take care until next time!

Mouse controls and extras - v1.31

Hi there, a new update from the snow-clad Visiontrick HQ has now been published.

This has been long overdue, but the mouse controls are finally here! Just head into the options meny and toggle it on(you can now choose between 3 options - gamepad/keyboard - mouse - Tobii Eyetracker).

Since it has not been tested to the extents of the gamepad/keyboard version, we appreciate that if you play the game with mouse controls do please get back to us with any information about bugs or strange behavior, or any thoughts of improvements.

A while back we also put in some extras in the game folder but did not write about it here. So located in the game folder, you'll find it through right clicking on the game in the Steam library list -> PROPERTIES -> LOCAL FILES -> BROWES LOCAL FILES. There you will find a Extras folder including:

  • "The Early and Unseen Art of PAVILION" PDF.
  • High-definition wallpapers.
  • Sample song of Tony Gerbers Soundtrack.

There's also a bunch of bug fixes as well as an updated version of the Tobii EyeX firmware(2.0) working with the newly released 4C hardware.

If you have any feedback, please get in touch!

“Pavilion even alludes to games like Braid, in a similar fashion to how Borges recycles the works of Cervantes, Shakespeare, and classical and biblical literature. Somewhere amid the curious puzzles and the dreamlike neoclassical ruins painted with an art nouveau pallette, Pavilion became about the language of play.”
Kill Screen

“I would recommend Pavilion to anyone who likes puzzle games that rely on observation or hidden object games. I also recommend it to anyone who is interested in games as art, for the beauty of the environments and the storytelling.”
IndieGames Weblog

“An indie gaming masterclass in how to do things differently. A deeply enthralling adventure game that does things differently. You really, really need to play this one.”
9/10 – Pocket Gamer

About This Game

Pavilion, the fourth-person puzzling adventure from Visiontrick Media, throws you directly into its mysterious and atmospheric world without any text tutorials or beginning explanations.

Interact with the environment - sounds, lights, physical objects - in order to guide the unknown main character towards his impending fate.

  • 28 atmospheric and puzzling levels in a surreal dream-like place where reality clash with fantasy. Fully realized in beautiful hand-crafted 2D artwork and otherworldly music that makes for an unforgettable audio-visual experience.

  • Dreamy ambient tunes from space-music pioneer Tony Gerber whose music sets a beautiful atmosphere and brings a great contemplative mood to the experience of Pavilion.

  • A game in two chapters; Chapter 1 out now(this). Chapter 2 out in 2017 as dlc.

  • Featuring Eye-Tracker support for Tobii EyeX Eye-Tracker – With the power of simple gaze interaction you move around, observe and interact with the puzzling world and the unknown hero in order to guide him towards his impending fate.

    Extending the already omnipresence aesthetic the Eye-Tracking adds to the fourth-person sentiment both on a narrative level and through the indirect gameplay itself.

Extras also includes:
  • "The Early and Unseen Art of PAVILION PDF.
  • High-definition wallpapers.
  • Sample song of Tony Gerbers Soundtrack.
