Game of the Year Celebaration - 50% Off!

We're incredibly honoured to say that Heart of the Emberstone took home "Game of the Year" at the 2018 VR Awards! While Emberstone released at the end of last year, we missed the window for the 2017 show and were excited to be in contention for this year's contest.

Heart of the Emberstone and The Gallery as a whole has been a labour of love for us from the very beginning of this new era of VR. Among the many action and rhythm games across the platform, we know that story-driven adventure games like The Gallery are a tough sell. We appreciate all of you who have taken the plunge and joined us on this journey to something different, and we hope you can continue to join us for what we've been quietly cooking for the future of VR...

In the meantime (you know I gotta do it), if you haven't yet joined the adventure, both Heart of the Emberstone and Call of the Starseed are 50% this weekend. We'll see you on the other side of the Starseed soon.

“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.”
