Adventure game fans, there is a new puzzle/thriller set in space for your consideration out on PC. The 5-8 hour experience places players on Saturn's largest moon, Titan, in the middle of a seemingly abandoned space station trying to find its missing crew members. The mystery of the station and its former inhabitants only deepens as players explore the objects and messages left behind. The game takes place in an alternate timeline in which the Soviet-U.S. space race never ended, each country continued to try to out perform the other in the field of space exploration.
One of the hooks of P.O.L.L.E.N. is that almost every object that can be seen in the environment can be interacted with or picked up. Any one of these things could be useful to solving puzzles or uncovering more secrets. The devs at Minefield Games state that they drew a lot of inspiration from films like 2001: A Space Odyssey and Solaris to create the technology seen in P.O.L.L.E.N. and it really comes through visually and helps objects to pop in the environment.
Though a nearly finished VR beta is ongoing, complete VR support for the title is coming in the near future. Players can expect to see P.O.L.L.E.N. on the PlayStation 4 with HTC Vive support later this year, though no definitive date has been given yet.
