Description: Inspired by science-fiction classics such as Solaris, 2001: A Space Odyssey and the Moon, P·O·L·L·E·N’s retro-futuristic world is an incredibly detailed, living-breathing environment, that feels every bit as real as the one around you. Each step in the shoes of a space mechanic will transport you into the Station M, where you can try everything you can get your hands on to solve intriguing puzzles and uncover the mysteries that lie beneath the moon’s crust.

Review: P·O·L·L·E·N is a good looking space adventure game that has a pretty good story and to be fair, it stays interesting till the very end. I will even go so far as to say that I think it is worth the money. While it would be best waiting for a sale, I still think it just about offers enough content to justify the full asking price. But sadly it is far from flawless…

First up is that the game is terribly buggy and even the simple act of picking things up can be difficult. Then there is the nausea-inducing movement that makes the game difficult to play in VR. But get your VR legs and you should be OK. While not perfect I stand by saying that this is worth a download. The deep story that goes with it does make it something you can immerse yourself in, but just be aware that this is no AAA title and you should be fine.
