Description: Charm Games brings you FORM, a surreal adventure that unfolds within the confines of the human mind. Dr Devin Eli is a brilliant physicist at the global technology mega-conglomerate Mindful Laboratories. Working in seclusion at an atmospheric research facility in the Alaskan wilderness, Dr Eli is on the brink of uncovering the meaning behind a mysterious signal coming from a secret artefact – The Obelisk.
Playing as the gifted Dr Eli, you have superhuman powers of geometric visualization – the unintended consequence of childhood trauma. Use your powers to follow the signal through The Obelisk and explore dream-like memories to unlock puzzles in your own mind. This path could lead you to a new existence…or it could leave you trapped in your past forever.
Review: I feel that I need to get the bad things out of the way in this review before I start to tell you what I love about it. First of all it is way too short to justify the £10.99 aksing price with 1.5 hours worth of content tops. Oh, and it is often way too dark. Well…that is about it! OK, so it’s short, but in that short hour, you will be fully immersed in a weird sci-fi world filled with amazing things to see and intriguing puzzles to solve. You get through this game quick because it makes you want to go on and finish it all. Each sound effect feels magical and each new area filled with amazing things. OK, so maybe it is overpriced a little, but this is one of those VR experiences that makes me glad I own the technology to see this sort of thing. If you are not so sure do wait for a sale, but at some point do give it a go, even if it is the free demo.
