After following Elsie to the world of Ember, you discover the remnants of a destroyed civilization, torn apart by two siblings and their individual quests for power. Along the way you meet a mountainous ally who, like you, is looking for his other half. Using your mysterious new gauntlet, you must unravel the history of this forgotten place, and reveal the true intentions of the dark figure who sent you here.


A four-part fantasy adventure game, The Gallery was successfully Kickstarted in the spring of 2013 as the first ever announced built-for-VR game. The first episode of The Gallery, titled Call of the Starseed, released as a launch title for the HTC Vive in April 2016, and the Oculus Touch in December, to critical acclaim. Called “one of the best games” for the platform by the New York Times, Call of the Starseed has been listed as a top VR game by more than a dozen other publications, and is currently bundled with every new HTC Vive. The Gallery has also crossed the rare milestone of $1M in VR game sales, and has been honoured with over 20 different awards and nominations.
