Today sees the launch of Steam Greenlight campaign for a promising new virtual reality (VR) compatible adventure title from indie developer Cardboard Keep. Warden: Melody of the Undergrowth is hoping to secure enough positive votes to launch a full version on Valve’s digital store. Should all go to plan then the title will release in early 2015 on PC, Mac and Linux with full support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD).
Warden: Melody of the Undergrowth is a third-person action title inspired by the 3D adventure titles of the Nintendo 64-era. Players are cast as a young soldier tasked with restoring a balance between mankind and nature. The soldier is granted the ability to take control of lost children that have been called to a forest, each one boasting their own unique power. Players will use these powers to face enemies and solve puzzles.
Cardboard Keep has been working on Warden: Melody of the Undergrowth since October 2013, meaning it’s nearly ready for release. The title boasts a colourful, hand-painted artstyle which is utilised across a range of environments such as undergrowth, ruins, mountaintops and caverns. The title’s campaign is split into three seperate acts. An arena mode will also feature, allowing players to compete on scoreboards.
Warden: Melody of the Undergrowth will be on display at this weekend’s PAX Australia event in Melbourne. VRFocus will continue to follow the title’s progress, reporting back with any further updates on it.
