Milan, Italy – December 12, 2023 – Space Whale, an indie game studio with experience in developing and publishing VR and multiplatform games, is proud to announce that their new game, Wisdom Watcher, is now in early access on Steam, and Applab for $14.99/€14.99.
Wisdom Watcher is an arena-based, first-person VR action/shooter game set in a clockpunk universe where the player takes on the role of a young pilgrim of the Wisdom Watchers, an order that strives for the advancement of humanity through the ongoing study of astral magic. It is this very magic that will transport you to the astral dimension, where you must contest against the terrifying inhabitants that were born from ancient and uncontrollable energies. Overcome your fears, venture into diverse arenas with different gameplay modes and challenge astral adversaries to achieve top scores. Your prowess can secure a position on the competitive monthly and seasonal leaderboards, granting you exclusive rewards. Master your arsenal by purchasing, upgrading, and equipping weapons with unique abilities to tailor your strategic approach. Harness the power of collectible cards, utilizing their passive skills, or deploy them to construct practical in-game items such as barricades, traps, and explosive barrels. Delve into the arenas and stay alert as both the environment and enemy behaviours continuously evolve. Be wary, the ever-changing energies of the astral dimension might call you back to battle at any moment.
