Shadow Point, the latest VR adventure from Coatsink, has been available for a few weeks now. It’s a typically enamoring game from the UK-based studio, with wholesome visuals and music. One of its best components, though, is its starring character, Lorna. She’s a fighty youngster, trapped in time. As the video below shows, Coatsink brought her to virtual life in a unique way.
As you jump between dimensions at different points in time, you meet several incarnations of the character. To help with this, Coatsink hired four different actors to represent Lorna at different ages. Each lends their thoughts to taking on the role in this short video. Not only that but we get some good ol’ fashioned first reactions to trying VR, too. Of course, Lorna isn’t the only character in Shadow Point. Sir Patrick Stewart also lends his voice talents to the game. You can also see him working on the project here.
We quite liked Shadow Point when we reviewed it a few weeks back. Ultimately we didn’t think it made the best use of Stewart himself, but Lorna was a standout character. “Shadow Point is another solid entry into Coatsink’s catalog of hopelessly charming VR productions,” we wrote. “It’s got just enough of the right sort of puzzle-solving to overshadow (pun intended) the late game’s more exhausting trials and its sweeping score and art direction make it a joy to spend time in. As far as VR brain teasers go, it’s an easy recommendation.”
Shadow Point is available now on Oculus Rift and Oculus Quest for $19.99.
