The world you know is turned on its head as Pavilion deposits you in a puzzling fantasy landscape.
By Jason Venter
There was a time when game tutorials weren’t the norm. You could put your game in the system, press a button or key to move past the title screen, and just like that you were thrown into your adventure. Game developers trusted players to figure things out by responding to cues that didn’t get in the way of a good time. It was glorious.
Pavilion, which is available this week on NVIDIA SHIELD, hearkens back to that forgotten time. Players are tossed right into the thick of things, and they’ll have to rely on their wits to figure out not only what is happening in the world around them, but how to meaningfully interact with that world in the first place.
Brought to you by Visiontrick Media, Pavilion is a “fourth-person” puzzling adventure. You’ll explore an unknown, dream-like world featuring a unique mix of familiar reality and wondrous fantasy. An ambient soundtrack from composer Tony Gerber enhances the mood.
Pavilion was the winner of the Best Art award at Big Fest 2016, and won the Best Design award at AZPLAY 2015. It was also nominated for numerous awards at those events and others, and was a finalist at the Nordic Game Indie Night 2015. Now you can experience the wonder for yourself on your NVIDIA SHIELD device.
