Virtual reality (VR) headsets have plenty of puzzle titles for fans to enjoy and today indie studio Stitch Media has announced its addition to the genre, a magical title called Flow Weaver; due for release next year.
Being built for Oculus headsets, Flow Weaver will be a multidimensional escape room where you play a wizard held captive in a mysterious location. You’ll need to use your magical powers to escape, learning new spells to move between worlds.
“The primary gameplay centers around transitioning between your cell and different dimensions (or “Flows”) as you discover them, learning how each Flow affects the world in different ways,” explains Stitch Media. “The player uses those differences to solve puzzles and challenges, learn new skills or spells, and uncover new objects and new puzzles.”
Designed to be a comfortable seated experience, the studio a wide 5 – 10 hours of gameplay with fully voice-acted dialogue and various paths to explore for alternate endings. Spells look like they could be gesture-based which always helps immersion, as well as utilising hand tracking.
Currently, Stitch Media has said Flow Weaver will only support Oculus platforms when it launches in 2021. Take a look at the trailer below which showcases various worlds and some of those magical abilities. As further details are released, VRFocus will keep you updated.
