When I previewed Vanishing Grace via SideQuest in mid-2020, I said the game felt like a full Oculus Store release. Well now it is. Or will be, anyway.
Update: Monte Perdido has confirmed to us that the game will launch on Quest on February 11th for $19.99. The team also says it won’t rule out possible Quest 2-specific upgrades in the future. Original story is below!
Vanishing Grace has popped up on the Coming Soon section of the Oculus Quest store for a February release. No specific release date was confirmed but developer Monte Perdido did release a launch trailer for the project which you can see below. It gives a good overview of the game’s story and gameplay mechanics.
Vanishing Grace Oculus Quest Trailer
In the game, the player embodies Joel, a man on the hunt for his missing childhood friend, Grace. Grace left a trail that Joel follows in a desert-cruising hovercraft. You’ll have to maintain the vehicle as you travel, visiting sites that Grace travelled to to pick up more clues.
When I played the demo last June I wrote about how Vanishing Grace used compelling interactions and detailed environments to weave a mystery I was looking forward to seeing through. The trailer above shows many more new environments than those featured in the demo, so it seems like there’s still a lot to discover.
When I spoke to the developer last year the team told me they were aiming for a four to five-hour adventure that would cost $14.99, though those details could have changed since then. Monte Perdido is also hoping to release on Rift and PSVR later down the line.
