VITEI Backroom’s idyllic VR adventure, Paper Valley, launched earlier this year as an Oculus Rift exclusive, but it’s soon to soar to another platform.
Paper Valley will be coming to SteamVR on June 6th with support for both Rift and the HTC Vive, the studio confirmed today. The Steam listing for the game has just gone live and there’s a new mixed reality trailer to mark the occasion, too. Come launch, the game will be available for $12.99 (formerly $19.99), with a 15% discount also running lanch week. VITEI is also launching the game’s soothing soundtrack for $2.99 and also in a bundle for $14.99.
In Paper Valley, players throw paper planes at targets, restoring a world back to vibrant life in the process. The game is designed to be a relaxing, non-violent adventure.
We certainly saw the game’s charms when we reviewed it earlier this year, though we ultimately thought it was a little too light. “There is an appreciated peacefulness to be discovered here as you send planes on their way, but the game constantly feels like it’s aiming for more enlightening sensations that never break through,” we said. “I was happy to spend two hours with it before returning to more traditional VR realms, but the memories of its sun-kissed landscape won’t linger long.”
