The Abbot's Book Demo is a short demo of The Abbot's Book, a longer immersive virtual reality gothic experience. This demo features a short excerpt from one of the complete game's 8 chapters. In it, you'll explore a 17th-century Italian abbey and interact with some of the game's characters.
A Gothic exploration experience
The Abbot's Book Demo isn't a game as such; it's just a fragment of a larger whole, intended to give you a sense of the game's mechanics and environment. One game controller takes on the role of the torch your character uses to light the way, while you'll use the other to move around the environment by pointing and teleporting. By exploring the environment, you'll learn more about the backstory of this strange abbey and the history that defines it. Because this is just a demo experience, The Abbot's Book Demo provides more questions than answers, but the effect is tantalizing. Like many narrative VR experiences, this one has relatively little real interactivity.
The beginning of an exploration
The Abbot's Book Demo is just a teaser for the full game, but it does a good job conveying its mysterious atmosphere and narrative.
