Stunning new Pavilion trailer showcases fourth-person puzzle gameplay

  • Posted February 28th, 2014 at 19:03 EDT by Adam Byrne

Pavilion, the incredible new fourth-person indie title from Visiontrick Media, has today received the spotlight treatment on Sony’s North American PlayStation Blog.

The puzzler, which is set to appear on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in the coming months, throws players into the deep end with no formal tutorials or gameplay explanations, instead expecting suitors to untangle the mechanics through exploration and the imagery afforded to the surroundings.

Henrik Flink, Co-founder and Creative Director of Visiontrick Media, explains the term ‘fourth-person’ as, ‘’basically, the character is not your avatar and you are not in control of him. Instead, you have to find different ways — mostly through environmental interaction — to guide, influence or even force him to explore and fulfil the purpose of the world. This indirect control is what we refer to when we say fourth-person.’’

Check out the trailer and screenshots below.

 

Pavilion is scheduled for a Q2 2014 release on both PS4 and PS Vita and looks to be one of the more intriguing indie releases of the year. Let us know what you think below.
