Song in the Smoke release date
17-Bit

17-Bit’s virtual reality survival adventure Song in the Smoke is coming to Oculus Quest, Rift, PlayStation VR very soon.

Song in the Smoke developer 17-Bit (Skulls of the Shogun, GALAK-Z) has been teasing us with a release date for some time now, so it’s good to finally confirm that this intriguing survival game will finally be released on October 7, 2021. The game is out on all major VR platforms and is priced at $29.99 in the United States.

In a strange primordial world populated by strange creatures, players must craft, hunt, forage and fight, using the immersion of VR to identify threats.

So far, so familiar. However, art from acclaimed illustrator Katsuya Terada (The Legend of Zelda, Blood: The Last Vampire, The Monkey King) marks the game out with extravagant creature designs and eerie, stylised environments.

Speaking about the game, 17-Bit founder and creative lead Jake Kazdal says:

“When we decided to make Song in the Smoke, we knew we wanted to make more than a VR tech demo, but rather a fully fleshed out survival adventure that captures the danger and wonder of the natural world. It’s a place you want to be… even when it scares the bejesus out of you. We’re based in Kyoto, which is full of absolutely mesmerising ancient forests, and we wanted to capture the feeling of being a primitive person living in this lush wilderness, relying on their wits and instincts to get by. Song in the Smoke is enchanting and foreboding in a way that never would have been possible without VR.”
