Trapped in the enchanting simulated world of Arca, it is up to you to find a path through the labyrinth and break free.

In Arca's Path you play as a young girl who finds herself in a beguiling, beautifully abstract yet enchanting new world. But as you wander further down the path, the beauty around you begins to crumble and the road ahead becomes more treacherous. Skill, instinct and awareness will help you navigate the path and find your way back home. 

Arca's Path VR will also feature an intuitive play style that does not require a controller. 

Arca's Path VR is now also confirmed for Viveport, meaning it will be available on Vive Focus starting December 4th, 2018, in addition to PlayStation VR, Steam VR, Oculus Rift, Oculus Go, Gear VR and Windows Mixed Reality. 

"The team have worked together to build this simple, accessible game mechanic," said Dr Dave Ranyard, CEO of developer Dream Reality Interactive. "We wanted to make something that was just really engaging, that everybody could play."

"We're delighted to be supporting Arca's Path VR," said Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley. "With Battlezone we wanted to be innovative in the VR space, and with Arca's Path the team at DRI are doing that too."

Arca's Path VR will be playable at EGX 2018, starting today and running through to Sunday, September 23rd. Play the same demo that the Telegraph called "an oasis of calm" and UploadVR described as "one of the most comfortable and relaxing experiences I've ever tried in a VR headset." Head over to the Rezzed area to try the game and meet the development team.

Arca's Path VR  is being developed by Dream Reality Interactive, a London-based studio with a pedigree in creating immersive VR and AR experiences including PlayStation VR Worlds, PlayStation VR's biggest-selling title, and the critically acclaimed AR interactive book series Wonderbook.

Key Features:

  • Arca’s Path VR is a ball-rolling, physics-based platformer where you must use skill and patience to safely guide the girl through a labyrinth world.
  • Work your way through the bright, abstract levels, as the world glitches and distorts around you.
  • Experience the unique control system, just your head to control with precision.
  • Discover the hidden collectibles on each level, pushing your abilities to the limit.
  • Show off your skill with the time trial mode, unlocked after you find all the collectibles on each level.
  • Soundtrack composed by Raffertie from Ninja Tune, who brings his ambient electronic soundscapes to the world of Arca.

Arca's Path VR will be available on Viveport/Vive Focus starting December 4th, 2018, in addition to PlayStation VR, Steam VR, Oculus Rift, Oculus Go, Gear VR and Windows Mixed Reality.
