Oddboy and M-Theory did not hurry with the delay’s Wanderer announcement…
We wrote the previous sentence for a good reason. The two companies planned to release the virtual reality time travel adventure game Wanderer in the year’s third quarter. That will end in a little more than a week. And yet, they just delayed it to the fourth quarter, so the game should still be available this year. In return, there will be a physical PlayStation VR version of the game, published by Perp Games.
“The last year has been a pretty tricky one. Navigating COVID-19 and its effects while maintaining a healthy and productive environment and developing a unique game for virtual reality has meant we’re running a bit behind on our schedule,” the devs wrote. The PlayStation VR retail copies will include the disc of the game and an exclusive digital version of the official art book.
“It’s been awesome to get this partnership with Perp off the ground. It extends our audience and is a great keepsake for fans—perhaps even one of the last first-gen PlayStation VR games available as a physical edition. The team at Perp have been wonderful to work with, and we can’t wait to get our hands on the final box!” said Wanderer executive producer Samu Ramlu in a press release.
“Probably the best looking PlayStation VR game we have had the privilege to play, Wanderer is an incredibly detailed and extremely well-thought-out puzzle adventure game. It’s a pleasure to be publishing the physical retail edition. For anyone who’s ever wanted to ‘be there’: on stage at Woodstock, part of the moon landings, or with Nikola Tesla in the early 20th century, Wanderer is a must-have game for history and adventure game buffs alike,” Perp Games managing director Rob Edwards added.
The video below features one of the key characters of the game, Samuel the Watch. “The Watch is the companion to the game’s lead character, Asher Neumann, and is integral to your journey through the adventure and in solving any puzzles you encounter,” reads the press release. Wanderer will be available for PlayStation VR, Oculus, and Steam VR sometime between October and December.
