Okay, so we all know what a first-person or a third-person game is, but apparently VisionTrick Media thought those two traditional gameplay styles were too confining. So later this year they’re giving us a “fourth-person” puzzling adventure game called, Pavilion. Although the game was announced back in September at the Tokyo Game Show, not many people knew about it so the developer’s thought it was high time they started dropping some information on the Playstation Blog.

According to Visiontrick, the game plops you into their “world without any text tutorials or beginning explanations.” In a day and age where games are saturated with lengthy and unnecessary tutorials, this sound pretty refreshing. They elaborate by saying, “By interacting and observing you gradually, bit by bit, learn things about both the puzzling gameplay and the world itself.”

Now, in regards to the previously mentioned “fourth-person” aspect of the game, it seems the player is not in direct control of the character and instead, “you have to find different ways — mostly through environmental interaction — to guide, influence or even force him to explore and fulfill the purpose of the world.” Visiontrick Media says this is what they mean when they say their game is “fourth-person.”

Unless you’re going to be in Japan attending BitSummit at the Kyoto Indie Game Festival, you’ll have to wait until the Pavilion launches later this year for bot the PS4 and PS Vita to get your hands on it.
