New gameplay footage for upcoming fourth-person puzzler revealed.
Pavilion, an upcoming PlayStation 4 game that many were curious about due to the developer’s description of it being a “fourth-person game”, has had new footage released today, along with an explanation of what, exactly, the developers meant by the term, “fourth-person”.
The developers state, “Let’s talk a little bit about the term ‘fourth-person,’ which is something we’ve used over the past year to describe the way you interact with the main character. Basically, the character is not your avatar and you are not in control of him. Instead, you have to find different ways — mostly through environmental interaction — to guide, influence or even force him to explore and fulfill the purpose of the world. This indirect control is what we refer to when we say fourth-person.” Sounds a bit like Echochrome, but we won’t know for sure how it will be until we get to play the game later this year.
What are your thoughts on the term and the new gameplay footage?
