We don’t tend to highlight trailers that are a few months old here at UploadVR. But we’ll make an exception for Mare, a game that seems to have flown under our radar.
We were recently alerted to this upcoming game from Visiontrick Media and had to share its latest trailer. In Mare, you follow a lost girl and a mechanical bird she has a strange connection to. Using gaze-based controls, you guide both through a mythical world, solving puzzles and avoiding what looks like a race of evil crow-people.
But let’s just stop a minute and talk about that trailer, huh? I’d imagine Visiontrick is sick of hearing comparisons to ICO and Shadow of the Colossus right now but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a game that looks so tonally close to those masterpieces. Misty vistas, labyrinthine architecture, tranquil nature, this seems to have the lot. In fact the game’s website has a few more GIFs to share and, well, yeah…
Yeah, safe to say we’ll be keeping a keen eye on this one going forward. Mare’s actually been in development since 2016, but Visiontrick says it’s still on the way to ‘Oculus platforms’. As this point that could mean anything from Rift to Go and/or Quest. It’s due to release later this year.
Like what you see? Well good news – we’ll have another look at Mare in our E3 VR Showcase on June 10. In fact, we’re going to have a heck of a lot to talk about there. Make sure not to miss it!
