As VR gamers on PC look forward to the release of The Gallery – Episode 2: Heart of the Emberstone, launching October 18th, PSVR should be excited too; developer Cloudhead Games is working on a PSVR version of Heart of the Embertsone, and is also considering porting the first episode in the series, Call of the Starseed (2016).
In many ways The Gallery – Episode 1: Call of the Starseed is a foundational VR title, defining & refining a number of VR game design concepts that we now find in many titles to date. However, initially targeted for room-scale gameplay, the game hasn’t yet found its way to PSVR, thanks in part to the system’s more limited tracking tech.
With the second episode in the series, Heart of the Emberstone, launching on Vive and Rift next month, PSVR players might be feeling a bit left out. Thankfully the studio says that a port of the game is planned for Sony’s PlayStation VR headset, though they’re encouraging players to be vocal in order to gauge demand.
“We’re currently planning a port to PSVR, but if you’d like to see PSVR support sooner rather than later, please let us know in the forums!” reads the Steam FAQ page for the game.
As for the first episode, Call of the Starseed, the studio has a PSVR port under consideration, but doesn’t seem committed just yet.
“Because [Call of the Starseed] was built for roomscale VR, porting the experience to hardware such as PSVR requires a bit more effort and care. But, if you’d like to see PSVR support sooner rather than later, please let us know in the forums!” reads the game’s Steam FAQ page.
