FAQ

What is the Gallery?

The Gallery is a virtual reality fantasy exploration video game inspired by dark 80’s fantasy movies and classic graphic adventure games. The Gallery has a deep narrative with bizarre characters who take you on an adventure through fantastical environments while challenging you with physical interactions and puzzle solving.  We are not modifying or porting a game to be accessible in VR, we have built The Gallery to be a VR experience from the ground up, with the intricacies of the medium driving every aspect of design.

 

How do I play the Gallery?

Fully immersed inside the world of The Gallery, you will be guided through an engaging storyline full of unique interaction challenges and meaningful puzzle solving. Physically use your hands to interact with objects – carry and throw virtually everything in the game, open doors, and insert objects into spaces/sockets. But do not get your fingers caught. Cloudhead Games is not responsible for missing fingers, arms, toes, etc.

 

How can I buy The Gallery?

The Gallery will first be available for the HTC Vive, releasing in Spring 2016, with support for  additional VR platforms like Oculus Rift and Sony Morpheus released as they are launched. Stay tuned for additional platform announcements and pre-order information through Valve’s Steam Marketplace, Amazon and others.

Who is making the Gallery?

We are Cloudhead Games, a group of developers from Vancouver Island who have been working in the VR space since late 2012. We began our journey with a humble Kickstarter campaign which granted us the opportunity to begin working on The Gallery. Since then we’ve grown into a diverse team of pioneers drawing from many different backgrounds, from AAA game studios like Bioware, Riot and Relic, to tabletop RPG developers like Worldworks Games.

 

Kickstarter Backer?

First of all, THANK YOU. This would not have begun without your help. We have always been very proud and honored by your continued support.
If you pledged $25 or more through our Kickstarter, congratulations, you have already pre-ordered all four episodes of The Gallery. During launch this Spring 2016, you will be polled to determine which system you would like keys for, which you can then redeem through your service of choice.
