Game of the Year Celebration - 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.

Reviews

“[Heart of the Emberstone has] evolved to meet our heightened expectations of the second year of VR content, and yet again left us begging for more.”
9/10 – Upload VR

“It’s pretty rare that excellent voice acting, competent art direction, and a fully-realized world with a truly interesting story come together at once, so excuse me if I let out a well-deserved “wow."”
9/10 – Road to VR

“[Heart of the Emberstone] does a fantastic job of breaking away from the stigma of short, proof-of-concept VR titles to deliver a quality narrative experience that’s a must-have for any fan of the genre.”
8.5/10 – GameCrate
