There haven’t been many high-profile VR releases on late, but Charm Games is promising to deliver something special next week with Form.
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.
We’ve seen a lot of great VR puzzle games of late, including PSVR’s Statik, but we’re hoping Form goes above and beyond. Will we be scratching our heads or blazing through it?
We’ll find out if it succeeds next week. Form will hit Steam for $19.99.
