Second developer diary.
Journey for Elysium

Developer Mantis Games released their second behind the scenes video for Journey for Elysium. The latest, entitled "Mechanics," provides a look at the "process behind integrating technical features and design elements including motion control gameplay as well as levels into the game."

Journey for Elysium wants to remind players of old adventure games from the 90s. The game, played in VR, includes an ever increasing series of puzzles and challenges that must be conquered in order to progress the story. The game places players inside of a big world to explore.

Journey for Elysium is slated to be released by the end of 2019 on Steam. The game is targeting the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift VR systems. That means that the Valve Index and possibly the Rift S should also be good to go. If you missed the first developer diary, you can check that out here.
