There haven’t been many high-profile VR releases on late, but
Charm Games is promising to deliver something special next week
Due for release on the HTC Vive on June 1st, Form is a puzzler
game that’s caught the industry’s attention with the high
production values and intriguing challenges. It’s a
first-person experience that makes full use of the Vive’s
motion controllers to tease your brain in new ways.
In Form you play as Dr. Devin Eli, a physicist based in an
Alaskan favility. During his research, Dr. Eli uncovers a
strange singal emitting from a mysterious artifact known as The
Obelisk. That sounds like enough of a twist in itself, but Dr.
Eli isn’t your average doctor; he has superhuman powers.
Using geometric visualization you’ll follow the signal,
completing puzzles that unravel in your own mind. Based on what
we’ve seen in the trailer above, you can expect fantastical
trials that remind us a little of Fireproof Games’ The Room
with more of a supernatural twist.
We’ve already gone hands-on with the
game and found a lot of promise. Oculus Rift and
PlayStation VR versions are expected to launch over the course
of the next year, too.
