In a groundbreaking move for the world of mixed reality gaming, Novelab, one of the most awarded immersive studios globally, is set to launch “Demeter, The Asklepios Chronicles” on January 25, 2024. This game marks a significant milestone as it is the first mixed reality game of this scale and ambition to be developed.

Novelab, a Paris-based studio, has been at the forefront of spatial entertainment since 2009, developing spatial audio plugins for Hollywood movies such as Django Unchained in 2012. The studio’s work on the VR piece “Notes on Blindness” won the Storyscape award at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2016 and was featured by the New York Times.

Novelab’s other notable works include “Spheres” in 2018 and “On the Morning you Wake” in 2022, both of which earned distinctions at SXSW, Sundance, and the Venice Biennale.

“Demeter, The Asklepios Chronicles” is a unique mixed reality game designed for the Meta Quest 3. The game is fully playable in any size room, and thanks to procedural generation, each gameplay experience is unique. The game’s narrative takes players through volumetric puzzles that can only be experienced in spatial games. Players will have the opportunity to solve puzzles and experience an adventurous story like no other.

In the game, players control a female character named Atalanta, who has fallen into our world. The player’s task is to help her understand how and why she ends up in their home. The furniture and walls of the player’s home become challenging puzzles that require all their dexterity. The levels and graphics are procedurally generated and adapt to the size and conditions of the room in which the game is played. This means that each game world is unique and tied to the space in which it takes place, whether small or large.

Players will be able to climb, jump, fly, and run using your walls and your furniture in a way you never experienced before.

Paul Mezier, Executive Producer of Novelab, expressed his excitement about the game’s launch, stating, “Demeter is the first Mixed Reality game of this scale and ambition to be made, and it is beyond thrilling to work at the forefront of what this technology can offer. We’re really excited for Quest players everywhere to experience the world of Demeter right in their living room when it launches in January”.

The future of Demeter lies in the hands of the players. Their choices will impact the Demeter universe and the fate of Atalanta. The game is scheduled for release on January 25, 2024, for Meta Quest 2, 3, and Pro, and players can already pre-order the game on the Meta Quest Store and receive a 10 percent discount.

Novelab’s journey into developing its own creative IP began in 2021, and Demeter is the result of this process. The game is the culmination of 15 years of experience from the team at Novelab. The studio is currently working on its next game and is open to collaborations on any ambitious immersive projects
