Eclipse: Edge of Light, a beautiful virtual reality exploration game being created by a team led by a former God of War designer, is now a Google Daydream timed exclusive.
The game, which we first wrote about last year, is being developed by Jonathan Hawkins’ White Elk studio.
During a talk today at SXSW in Austin, Jamil Moledina, game strategic lead at Google Play, showed off a short video for the game to highlight the sort of experiences that the company is looking for.
He said the game doesn’t quite have a release date, but that it will be coming out soon, and that while Eclipse is initially exclusive to Daydream, it can later be released to other platforms.
The game is a first-person exploration game set on a sentient planet with a “dark past,” according to White Elk’s website.
At its core is a mysterious story of a world filled with discovery and wonder. You awake after crash-landing to find yourself in a dreamscape environment, littered with the remnants of a failed civilization.
You find a supernatural relic, the Artifact. This device allows you to control elements of the natural world and interact with the ancient technology. It is constructed of different fragments, each giving you new powers to control the physical world, on an ever increasing scale. Your goal is to collect these fragments, uncover the mysteries of the past, and escape the planet.
Moledina also showed off a video for the game, which you can see below.
