Pavilion: A ‘Fourth Person” Game Coming To PS4 And Vita
Although you may yet to have heard of it, Pavilion, is a puzzler by indie developer Visiontrick Media coming out later this year. It was a game announced by Sony last year at the Tokyo Game Show, and has a little twist, it is a ‘fourth person’ game.
Here is a little quote that summarizes the ‘bewitching’ Pavilion experience:
“Pavilion, the fourth person puzzling adventure from Visiontrick Media, throws you directly into its mysterious world without any text tutorials or beginning explanations. It is a puzzle game portrayed through exploration and audio-visual imagery. By interacting and observing you gradually, bit by bit, learn things about both the puzzling gameplay and the world itself.”
I bet you are wondering what exactly “fourth person” is. Unlike first person, the character is not your avatar. Unlike third person, the character is not control someone you control. You have to use the character’s surroundings to get it to do something. A sort-of example would be Little Deviants, but Pavilion has much more subtle controlling. For more understanding, (I don’t know if this is actually in the game) you would touch a bush, its leaves would rattle, and noticing that, the character would go investigate.
You can see some gameplay of Pavilion in this video:
If you want to play Pavilion before its release, and happen to be in the Kyoto, Japan area from March 7th to March 9th , Pavilion will be available for play at BitSummit MMXIII.
I can’t wait to see how this game turns out. That’s all for now from me, The Jay Doctor. If you’d like, I can be followed and contacted via Twitter @The_Jay_Doctor.
