At the first State of Play in 2023, there were a slew of announcements for the recently released PSVR 2, and one of the most intriguing titles was Journey to Foundation, which has a release date for Fall 2023.

Isaac Asimov's The Foundation is a collection of novels that chronicle the foundation, a government agency that tries to save humanity following the collapse of the galactic empire. The original narrative of the novel is a science fiction setting, which is now a highly politicized situation.

Ward is a Public Safety Commission officer assigned to investigate civil unrest in the Galactic Empire's crumbling Galactic Empire. Although the Imperial forces remained stable for 12,000 years, they also depleted their force, causing stagnation and unrest on the fringes.

The player's journey begins by infiltrating the ranks of defectors who wish to reach the Foundation, the institution that predicted the Empire's final destruction at the exact time. It is up to the player's actions whether they will stand up for the Empire or fight against the existence they knew.

The game offers a huge variety of options for resolving each difficulty. You can use a stealthy strategy to flank enemies, or you can simply blast through them with the Modular Cannon and work your way to the target, but this may mean that other characters don't trust the player or refuse to cooperate with him.

Ward can also use a mentalics skill that allows him to influence others around him, which can allow him to coax a threatening person or forcefully extract information from other characters. All of this is included in the player's dialogue system, which the player has full control over.

For a VR game, let alone a traditional gaming experience, it's quite ambitious. The adaptation of such a well-known work of literature has certainly been challenging, but adding the layers of complexity that Archiact promises, is a whole other challenge.
