Pavilion drew me to it like shiny objects draw Ostriches (don’t test this fact) – as I nonchalantly took a look at upcoming indie releases, there it was. A fourth-person puzzling adventure with an art style that, well, the images speak for themselves. The first of two chapters is set to release on the 22nd of September on Steam and the Humble Store, while for those who own an NVIDIA Shield it’s out, well, a day ago, with future releases on the Sony console and handheld.
It’s described as a “puzzle game portrayed through exploration and audio-visual imagery”, from which I gather it’s a puzzle video game. The trailer has the protagonist walking colorful, decadent and lonely areas, from libraries to floating isles, and solving puzzles in multiple ways: from the classic box-pushing to what seems like the manipulation of light. Their announcement page boasts it as being entirely playable with only your eyes, by use of Tobii’s EyeX eyetracker, so we can probably rule out gunfights and hectic platforming sections from the gameplay.
Since what caught my attention were its aesthetics, from visuals to audio, I’ll let you draw your own conclusions from the trailers and these o’ so beautiful screenshots:
