What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Awaken is a game about bringing life into a dark world. As a player you'll complete puzzles to awaken the guardians of the universe and shine light into its darkest corners. Early Access is a remarkable opportunity for us at Blueprint Reality Inc. to collaborate with our community and find new, unexpected sources of light.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect our Early Access phase to last from 3 to 6 months. However we'll be listening closely to our community's thoughts and feelings about the game and adjust accordingly.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of the game will include a full slate of 100+ puzzles, five worlds, community level sharing, real-time multiplayer, and a core narrative told throughout the main set of puzzles.

Most importantly, it will include as much of the community's feedback and suggestions as we can manage!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

Awaken has 30 puzzles ready to play at Early Access launch and some key narrative moments have been implemented. As well, the level creation features are fully implemented, so you can jump right in and create your own puzzles.

We'll continue to add new puzzles and story beats throughout Early Access.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Final retail pricing is still to be determined but will not vary drastically from the Early Access price.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Please join us on Facebook, Twitter and Reddit to sound off about Awaken! We'll periodically ask specific questions or share game data to elicit specific feedback, but we always love hearing off-the-cuff impressions as well!”

Announcing the Fountain of Light Update - Coming Soon!



Version 0.7.0 brings 30 new levels, a whole new world, and an entirely new in-VR way to share your levels with other players around the world and explore the creations of other Architects of Light. The Fountain of Light update will be available for you to experience before the end of the month!

World 2 and the Great Lynx


A new world and its Guardian are in peril! The darkness has inflicted a grievous wound on the Great Lynx that defends the light of this world overseen by a gas giant and floating islands of rock. Warmth and chill play pivotal roles in this world, each with their own unique parts, behaviours, and modifiers for existing puzzle elements.

The Community Altar


After completing at least level 15 of World 1 you’ll find a new lumen waiting for you, ready to raise the new Community Altar from the sea. At this new altar you can search for levels created by your friends and other Architects of Light, levels curated by Blueprint Reality, or put your trust in the stars and receive a brand new level for a chosen world.
