Description

Virtual land a'hoy! This huge expansion to the story of Hidden Fortune adds over two hours of all-new swashbuckling content, including eight puzzle-based Quests, six skins for your Wand and Orbs, and two new lush areas, as well as beautiful upgrades to art and UI in both Chapters. Wielding the Gear VR Controller as your trusty wand, you must fish for sunken loot, brew noxious grog, and explore exotic environments to reveal what happened to this once-idyllic isle. Between the balmy beaches and swaying palms, you’ll feel like you could stay forever, and this strange island may be all too willing to grant your wish!

History

When we at Archiact were tasked with concepting a fresh new game for VR, we drew upon two sources of inspiration: our extensive experience in the hidden object genre, and a desire to breathe new life into a classic game style. The notion of exploration and object-discovery in a completely virtual world drove us to create Hidden Fortune. From the very start, we wanted to make sure we got this game right. Through multiple prototyping sessions across three development cycles, we pinned down what mechanics and puzzles worked best. These discoveries were packed into the game, along with a fun, charming art style, and a story full of characters that make us laugh.
