Studio Asterism is a studio dedicated to creating VR games with mechanics not seen anywher else.
Studio Asterism's first foray into unique mechanics came in the form of In Sheep's Clothing, a puzzle platformer in which the player must safely escort an NPC who is deathly afraid of the player character. The game turned the idea of an escort quest on its head whiel exploring the ideas of emotional manipulation.VR Experimentation
Shortly after the release of the HTC Vive, the studio found a niche to fill: mechanics for moving around and interacting in VR. They made splashes in the VR Subreddit with the "Hamster Ball", dragon flight, gesture recognition, and hammer flight experiments.Experimentation to Full VR Game
With the positive reaction to these experiments, Studio Asterism turned towards turning these toy examples into a full game. Thus came the creation of WyVRn, a game with a universe which could accomodate magical flight, dragon riding, and magic casting. It has spent some time in Steam Early Access, as mechanics have been fleshed out, levels were created, and worlds and characters were built.
