For immediate release: We are proud to announce Stargaze, a VR adventure game about cosmic research, inspired by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s the ‘Little Prince’ coming to Oculus, Vive, Index and Windows Mixed Reality later this year.

For some, who are travellers, the stars are guides. For others they are no more than little lights in the sky. For others, who are scholars, they are problems…”

– Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Welcome pupils to stargazing 101. This semester we will be teaching you about the fascinating life that inhabits the stars. We assure you that the mysterious, yet beautiful events you will observe will grab you by the heart and make real Astronomers out of you in no time! Now, let us introduce you with the tools we will be using during our course.

About Stargaze

Discover a magical galaxy inspired by Little Prince’s interstellar travels, stylized as hand-drawn book illustrations and experience a wonderful cosmic fable in virtual reality.

Observe the life and events of the curious planets by physically manipulating your telescope. Find the proper angles and perspective to uncover their secrets. Take photos and note down your observations to complete your book of research and solve the ultimate cosmic mystery … or just sit down and chill-out stargazing.

Immerse yourself in a fable of cosmic proportions where you’re both the observer …as well as the man behind the scenes!
