VITEI Backroom’s charming little zen-like VR adventure, Paper Valley released as a timed Oculus Rift exclusive last month. The game sets you down in a valley full of ruins and hidden forces to uncover as you progress throughout. Using an inventory filled with paper airplanes, you’ll travel through the valley to restore it to its former bright glory by throwing the planes at or through targets.
Back when it released, the developers did promise to bring Paper Valley to HTC Vive players as well, no timeframe was given for how long they would have to wait. But it seems like that day has finally come as the development team have announced that the Steam page for the game has gone live, with a promise that the game will unlock on June 6. Meaning Vive players luckily won’t have to wait too long to get their hands on those planes.
The team at VITEI Backroom also released a new Mixed Reality trailer to celebrate the game’s upcoming Steam VR launch.
You can check out the trailer below:
We definitely liked Paper Valley’s serene vibe and easy to pick up and play style, and gave the game a 7.2/10 in our review. “Despite the simple concept, Paper Valley’s gameplay manages to hold some real value behind it. For instance, you have subtle control over your planes once they have left your hand. Between that and having various types of planes to at your disposal, you do get a sense of control over the action beyond just tossing paper. The target’s get progressively more challenging as you move through the levels, and you do get some subtle hints at ways you can further challenge yourself as you go.”
Paper Valley is currently available on the Oculus Store for $19.99 US but the game is set to come to Steam at £9.99 / $12.99 / €12,99. Anyone who hasn’t bought the game yet and prefers the Oculus Store needn’t worry, though, because the Oculus listing will also be updated to reflect the permanent discount. HTC Vive players (and Rift players who prefer the Steam platform) will also get a launch discount of 15% for the first week, lowering the price even further.
