General Information

Available on:PCApr 19, 2016

Developer: Mindfield Games

Genre: Adventure

In an alternate timeline of history, where the Kennedy assassination failed and the internet was never invented, the space race continued to boom as the Soviet and US programs combined their efforts to conquer the vast mineral rich expanse beyond Earth. Handing their findings over to private companies, governments gave way to corporations who would soon establish mining & research colonies all over the Solar System. Owned by one such conglomerate, Station M is a recently built research base of RAMA Industries on the Saturn’s largest moon Titan. A member of RAMA Industries’ research team has mysteriously disappeared. As a reserve employee of RAMA, you are sent to the windswept surface of Titan to investigate. With a large lunar storm looming on the horizon, you have no choice but to enter the base in search of answers… P·O·L·L·E·N is an atmospheric, suspenseful and highly interactive first person sci-fi exploration game set on Saturn’s moon Titan. Inspired by science-fiction classics such as Solaris, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and the Moon, P·O·L·L·E·N’s retro futuristic world is an incredibly detailed, living-breathing environment, that feels every bit as real as the one around you. Each step in the shoes of a space mechanic will transport you into the Station M, where you can try everything you can get your hands on to solve intriguing puzzles and uncover the mysteries that lie beneath the moon’s crust.

Pollen seems to want to say something, but clarity isn’t its strong suit.

With P.O.L.L.E.N, Mindfield Games goes beyond the basics of first-person adventures for a time-traveling journey full of things to tinker with. And if you have an Oculus Rift, you may find it even easier to fall in love with their well-crafted world.

It all plays out in a very interesting way, but culminates with one bizarre finale that doesn’t do anything to tie up the plot of the game.

I can wholeheartedly recommend playing this game to anyone remotely interested in space or first person exploration games that are more focused on letting the player do what the player will. P.O.L.L.E.N stands up to Gone Home as a gaming experience, but early adopters of the Rift would be remiss to pass on experiencing this game in virtual reality.
