The Gallery: Heart of the Emberstone is out now!

Developing Heart of the Emberstone has been a remarkable journey. This is a VR game that is really unlike anything else in the medium right now. It's a full-fledged story-driven puzzle/adventure game that takes place on a beautiful fantasy planet, built from the ground up to make full use of virtual reality.

Heart of the Emberstone picks up exactly where Call of the Starseed left off, so if you've been holding off on playing the first episode, now's the perfect time to play them both back-to-back. You even get a 10% discount if you pick up both episodes right now.

For those who already own Call of the Starseed, you'll also receive a 10% discount on Episode 2 when using the "Complete the Bundle" option on the store page.

Heart of the Emberstone is a long time in the making, and we've been endlessly grateful for the support and passion from our fans over the last year and a half.

We're incredibly excited to finally be able to say:

It's time to see the other side of the Starseed.

An Update on Heart of the Emberstone

The making of Heart of the Emberstone has been an adventure on its own, and Episode 2 of The Gallery has really become its own beast.

This is a VR adventure that hits the high notes that fans loved about EP1, but evolves the genre in some important ways. Now that the public has become more comfortable with VR, we’re taking the gloves off with lengthier gameplay, higher puzzle density and complexity, evolved VR mechanics, and a deeper dive into the narrative of The Gallery world.

We’re incredibly proud of where we’re at with the game right now; Heart of the Emberstone is really unlike anything we’ve seen before in VR. The game is effectively finished at this point, but as a small team we’ve decided to take the opportunity to put some extra love (and bug fixes) into Emberstone before launch. We’re running out of days in September, and while “Heart of the Octoberstone” doesn’t have quite as nice a ring to it, we feel it’s the right choice to make the best game for our fans.

So, here are the facts:
  • The Gallery – Episode 2: Heart of the Emberstone will release on Wednesday, October 18, 2017.
  • Emberstone runs most players between 4-6 hours, varying due to the openness of VR gameplay.
  • We’re releasing at $29.99, and we’ll continue to offer dollar parity for our fellow Canadians.
  • There will be a 10% bundle discount when purchasing both episodes, and a “complete the bundle” discount for existing owners of EP1 on Steam.
  • You can currently wishlist the game on Steam to get launch notifications and more info as it comes.
I’ll be around for any questions that I can answer today, and some of the other devs may chime in too. You can check our FAQ over on Steam for some answers to more common questions as well.

I’m also ethically obliged to let you know that Call of the Starseed is 50% off on Steam, Oculus Home, and Viveport right now until October 4. (This will probably be the last sale before launch because of the way the stores work, so if you want to know what the hubbub is about before EP2 releases, don’t miss this one.)

This was a hard decision to make, but we thank you as always for your support over these last few weeks and months especially. The adventure wouldn’t be possible without you.
