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…
How do I play The Gallery?
How can I buy The Gallery?
Are there accessibility features?
There are puzzles which require some physicality to solve, but The Gallery is at first an exploration game, and not an action game. It is designed to consider varying heights, hearing impairment (subtitles are in at launch of Episode 2 and coming very soon in an Episode 1 patch), color-blindness, and includes various skin tones and gender-neutral hand sizes in the settings to ensure immersion for all players.
I've got an Iron Stomach; does this game support traditional locomotion (aka Stick Move)?
As a launch title for VR, Call of the Starseed had to ensure player comfort as the technology reached mainstream audiences. Cloudhead became a pioneer of VR teleporation with “Blink,” the default locomotion in Starseed, back in 2015. While Blink remains the default for its cinematic feel, we’re currently looking into adding traditional locomotion options in a future update.
I am a Kickstarter backer. How do I get a copy of the game?
