We are very pleased and excited today to announce the worldwide debut of an puzzle and adventure game that we can safely say is unlike any you’ve played before. The game is Pavilion, from Visiontek, and it’s available for NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV owners to start playing today.
Pavilion is a “fourth-person puzzling adventure” that drops you into a vibrant, and richly detailed mysterious world without any guidance - there are no tutorials or “how to begin” explanations. Through exploration, observation, and interaction with the objects around your avatar, it’ll be up to you to decipher the gameplay mechanics and uncover the secrets the world hides.
Solving the puzzles is more than just about pushing buttons and pulling hidden levers. You’ll need to pay close attention to audio and light cues, as well as other subliminal elements, to help affect the perception of your avatar and influence his behavior.
Pavilion’s environs are beautiful renditions of painstakingly crafted hand-drawn scenes brought to life on the big screen as only the SHIELD Android TV can. Backed by an original and equally surreal ambient music soundtrack from Tony Gerber, the game delivers a compelling audio-visual experience that puzzle and adventure game fans will not want to miss.
Now, what exactly is a “fourth-person puzzling adventure game”? In Pavilion’s case, it’s a game in which you do not directly control the avatar. Instead, you guide and sometimes force him to explore and “fulfill the purpose of the world” by interacting with and manipulating objects you discover in the environment. Think of it almost as helping safely guide a mouse through a maze filled with puzzles and traps to its cheesy reward in the center.
Regardless of how you define it, Pavilion’s gameplay is definitely different, and the adventure game’s overall experience is contemplative, emotive, and challenging. Download it now in the Google Play store for $11.99!
If you don’t already own one, pick up an NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV and start playing Pavilion today.
