P·O·L·L·E·N is a strikingly beautiful first-person space thriller where everything can be interacted with. Operate any object or machine and explore their hidden features.

Designed and optimised to be played on monitor or in Virtual Reality.

Expand the story inside the Saturnian moon's Research Station M by searching for clues, unlocking new areas by solving puzzles, and finding out what hides under Titan's surface.

After the failed assassination of President Kennedy, NASA combined forces with the Soviet space program. A permanent moonbase was established in the 70s and space technology kept booming throughout the decade as inventions such as anti-gravity allowed objects to be lifted cheaply into orbit. The famous moonbase became a tourist attraction in the 90s as commercial space flights continued to expand the frontier towards the outer solar system

Rama Industries is one of the many organizations expanding the human frontier. Though encountering a disaster from time to time they push forward and search for new possibilities in space. One of the most interesting being the latest findings on the saturnian moon Titan, where the research of Station “M” has taken a spotlight.

The five person research team has now been working on “M” for one year, expanding the base and making wonderous discoveries until two months ago when one of their technicians went missing in a work related accident and a replacement is needed.

Would you like to know more about a job opportunity in space?

P·O·L·L·E·N will be optimized for the upcoming Virtual Reality headsets and motion controllers on launch. If you own a VR headset you can enter Research Station “M” just like you were actually on Titan.

The gameplay will not take camera control away from you, use jump scares, have frame drops or any other clear discomforts of VR...except where its intentional like the drunk mode. The best movement type in VR for you can be chosen from the different movement modes (regular, comfort, 25 degree jumping etc.) and multiple tweaks are available from head bob to gamepad acceleration.

Pollen is one of the best (if not the best) VR first person movement game that you will find.

Although fantastic in virtual reality, the use of a headset is optional. Players without VR devices will receive the full, uncompromised gameplay experience as well.

"There was just so, so much to do and I’m convinced everyone who plays this will be kept busy for hours upon hours"
-A Kirsty Moment

"I’m incredibly impressed with this...Aside from the feeling of 'Oh my god I’m actually here' that’s created with the help of both the VR and the sound design, the game is just so pretty. Everything feels like it’s on a space station. Everything feels like it’s meant to be there. Some objects contain vital clues to the mystery that’s surrounding this place, so it’s a good thing that within the first few minutes my 'explore all the things!' instinct kicked in".
