Frequently Asked Questions
What is The Gallery?
The Gallery is a virtual reality fantasy exploration video game inspired by dark 80’s fantasy movies and classic graphic adventure games. The game has a deep narrative with bizarre characters who take you on an adventure through fantastical environments while challenging you with physical interactions and puzzle solving. We are not modifying or porting a game to be accessible in virtual reality, we have built The Gallery to be a VR experience from the ground up, with the intricacies of the medium driving every aspect of design.
We have one more episode planned in the current series, but The Gallery universe goes well beyond Elsie’s story…
