The Gallery – Episode 2: Heart of the Emberstone from Cloudhead Games is officially releasing next month on October 18th, 2017, for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Back in June of this year the developers announced a September release window, but the game has been slightly delayed in order to insure the highest quality experience possible.
According to the developers:
“The game is effectively finished at this point, but as a small team we’ve decided to take the opportunity to put some extra love into Emberstone before launch. We’re running out of days in September, and while “Heart of the Octoberstone” doesn’t have quite as nice a ring to it, we feel it’s the right choice to make the best game for our fans…This was a hard decision to make, but we thank you as always, Reddit, for your support over these last few weeks and months especially. The adventure wouldn’t be possible without you.”
Just last week we got the chance to go hands-on with an updated build of the game and came away very impressed. Graphically it’s looking better than ever, the story promises more depth, the team is planning even more puzzles than before, and it’s reportedly twice as long as The Gallery – Episode 1: The Call of the Starseed, clocking in around 4-6 hours from early internal playtests.
The Gallery – Episode 2: Heart of the Emberstone releases on October 18th, 2017 for Rift and Vive at a price point of $29.99. Owners of the first game will receive a “complete the bundle” discount and you’ll be able to purchase both games at launch together for a 10% bundle discount.
