Britain’s Channel 4 Launches Its First VR Game

Soar: Tree of Life launched today on iOS and Google Play stores and will come to the Oculus Gear VR store later this month. The project is a collaboration between Channel 4’s All 4 Games and Coventry’s eLearning Studios

The experience is a relaxing exploration based adventure game designed to restore colour to a stunning but forgotten land. Through using simple tilting or tapping controls, players unite the birds and colours to bring beauty back to the island. There are seven levels aiming to leave players calm and revitalised, with improved focus and reduced anxiety. They claim that the experience lowers blood pressure and heart rate naturally.


Relax, Unwind And De-stress

eLearning Studios said, “We have designed and developed several relaxation games but the feedback that we’ve had from users has positioned Soar head and shoulders above the rest! People were wowed not only by its beauty, tranquillity and its ease of play, but by its ability to relax the mind and body leaving you with a sense of calm and wellbeing. We are truly delighted with the features of Soar as we see it as the essential experience for those who are looking to relax, unwind and de-stress.”

Colin Macdonald, Head of All 4 Games, commented “Soar is the first game we have published that is also playable in Virtual Reality and it’s great to have been part of its development. We always welcome a play of the game during a hectic day at the office to help the team to relax!”
