Exclusive PS4 and Vita Title Pavilion is Packed with Preposterous Puzzles

Posted by Kell Andersen

Transistor meets The Last of Us

If you're looking for some perplexing puzzles to dig into in the coming months, allow us to direct your attention towards PlayStation 4 and Vita exclusive Pavilion. The title is described as a 'fourth-person' experience, a moniker which makes even less sense the more you think about it. What this means in simple terms, though, is that you don't actually control the main character, but rather the environment he finds himself in.

What we're most excited about, however, is the game's visuals, which this new trailer does a terrific job of showing off. The contemplative title looks like the delirious brainchild of M.C. Escher and C.S Lewis - by way of The Last of Us - all set to the tune of Enya's worst fever dream. We've got our fingers firmly crossed that the gameplay can live up to this gorgeous presentation.

What do you make of this potentially pretentious puzzler? Will you be picking up Pavilion when it releases later this year? Walk on the ceiling in the comments section below.

What a way to describe this game. :P But thanks for posting this! I'm definitely intrigued by how this game is played and its art style.

Really liking the art style, but I'd need to see more of the gameplay before jumping into this one. I'll keep my eyes on it.

Do you really think that "The Last Of Us" is the right game to associate with Pavilion? I haven't played the game myself, (Pavilion) but from observations, it does not seem to have any of the specific traits that made (TLOU), what it is....I may be wrong, but I'll just wait & see.

@GreyFox I was more just referring to the visuals when I compared it to The Last of Us. All the environments seem to have been taken over by nature, which is reminiscent of that game - but obviously the gameplay (and everything else) is completely different. I probably should have made that clearer in the article, though :D
