Please just watch this terrific trailer for Toren

Toren is the kind of game I dream about when I drift off to sleep at night.

This indie puzzle adventure strikes a spark in my little soul in the same way as Ico and Tequila Works’ Rime do.

Mysterious, almost ethereal fantasy setting – check. Chance to actually walk around in that setting – check. Puzzle solving – check. Minimal embedded narrative – check. Badass slightly tribally influenced character design – check.

Toren is already making waves on the festival circuit, and the latest trailer only further whets my appetite:

It’s coming to PC on May 12, and can be pre-ordered on Steam for 10% off its cover price of $10 or local equivalent.

We’ve contacted indie games publisher Versus Evil, requesting an update on the PS4 version we were promised last year. Update: Good old Gematsu noticed that the trailer actually includes a May 12 launch date for PS4, too. Well! That makes a lot of sense.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
