P.O.L.L.E.N. for PC and PS4 is a first-person science-fiction adventure game and the debut project of Mindfield Games, an independent Finnish studio.
P.O.L.L.E.N. takes us to an alternative version of the 90s. In the developers’ vision of the world, history took a different course thanks to the fact that president John F. Kennedy survived the attempted assassination. It launched a chain of events that lead to combining the American and Soviet space programs which, in turn, resulted in a rapid technology development in the field. A base on the Moon was established as early as 1970s, and the conquest of the Solar System became possible thanks to the discovery of antigravity that allowed affordable launching of objects into the orbit.
The player assumes the role of a new employee of Rama Industries, a corporation dealing with space exploration. Its latest project involves building a base on the surface of Titan, the largest moon of Saturn. A five-member group of astronauts is working on this undertaking but one of them dies as a result of an accident. The protagonist is hired to replace him. Upon arrival, we discover that the remaining crew disappeared and our employer was not entirely honest with us. In the campaign, we have to uncover what really happened in the base and find a way to escape this place.
P.O.L.L.E.N. is a thriller adventure game in which the action is observed from the first-person perspective. The gameplay focuses on exploration and puzzle-solving. The puzzles are logic and most of them can be solved in various ways. The highly-interactive environment provides lots of freedom in terms of overcoming obstacles and other challenges—the players can manipulate nearly all encountered machines, devices, and items.
P.O.L.L.E.N. for PC and PS4 is powered by the Unity engine. The game was designed primarily with the VR technology in mind, but it is also possible to play on a monitor and TV.
