Paris, France, October 19, 2020.
Orichalcum Pictures (a hybrid production company and non-profit founded to explore archaeology through a multimedia lens) and The France-based indie games developer VR Connection are today very happy and proud to announce that their Greece and Myst-inspired VR adventure game. “Ryte: The Eye of Atlantis“, will launch for Steam VR and Oculus on December 8, 2020.
Set in a true-to-life vision of the fabled lost civilization, players will be able to admire historically accurate artefacts as they solve challenging puzzles and make decisions that could impact human civilization forever.

“Our team spent countless hours researching the work of scientists and ancient Greek philosophers in order to craft an exciting yet believable version of Atlantis,” says Clovis Rossillon, President of Orichalcum Pictures.
“We can’t wait for fans of adventure games and historical fiction to embark on their own Iliads and Odysseys soon.”
After traveling back in time, alternate history enthusiasts will be able to channel mythical energies and wield fantastical powers that allow them to manipulate the environment. As players learn to read the stars, decipher riddles, and join forces with Atlanlean natives like Danae, they will find their place in a battle for the fate of the ancient civilization. Every decision impacts the game’s narrative in some way and determines one of four distinct endings.
Ryte: The Eye of Atlantis will launch for Steam VR and Oculus on December 8, 2020. For more information, please visit the title’s Steam page, like the game on Facebook, follow the game on Twitter, and subscribe to the title’s YouTube channel.
