General Information

Available on:PlayStation VRMar 4, 2020


Genre: Adventure

In a dark chamber, you wake alone. A door hisses open. Stepping outside, you find a barren landscape of rocks and dust, distant ruins in the pale morning sun. High above, on looming cliffs, a ruined temple stands abandoned, sealed. What lies within? Her voice echoes in your mind, a whisper... 'It's been so long, since I had a visitor...' The path is long forgotten, seldom trodden. Will you find the way? Developed by solo indie game developer Recluse Industries, Separation is first person adventure at its most ambient and atmospheric. A meditation on solitude, loss, and the spiritual path, Separation is a unique journey to a place of epic desolation. Featuring a sublime electronic soundtrack by Vector Lovers, Separation is the ultimate chill out trip.

It works best as a piece of art and catharsis than as a fully enjoyable videogame. It has its moments and its surreal landscape certainly is attractive, but the game looks as a too private experience that only its creator will fully understand.

For what it is, Separation is an enjoyable couple of hours.

7 / 10

More than a game, Separation is a poignant testimony entirely conceived and developed by a single man, bruised and suffering from depression following the loss of a loved one. Martin Wheeler simply opened his heart to tell us about the evil that consumed him, in the form of a PlayStation VR game that deserves our attention.

Technical issues aside, Separation is a contemplative and striking journey through a bleak, alluring world.
