Eastasiasoft has announced that the meditative parallel puzzle game Semispheres will be coming to the PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment system on October 10, 2017.

Semispheres is a 2D puzzle game, with a gorgeous, synth-led soundtrack by Sid Barnhoorn, composer of Antichamber and The Stanley Parable, that places dual realities at the heart of its challenge. Featuring a bichromatic art style comprised of warm blues and oranges, it’s a game that seeks to reunite two parallel worlds.

“With its unique single-player split-screen mechanic, Semispheres challenges your mind by putting you in control of two characters at the same time,” said Radu Muresan, designer of Semispheres. “With a minimalist art style and a soundtrack by visionary composer Sid Barnhoorn, we are excited to launch Semispheres on PlayStationVita, a system with such a strong and passionate fan base.”

In Semispheres, each analogue stick controls a different avatar in environments that might initially appear identical but reveal profound differences crucial to progression. Portals allow the avatars to enter each other’s reality, creating fiendishly complex inter-dimensional puzzles, with success reliant on methodical planning and skilful execution. It’s not all esoteric brain workouts, though. Tension is introduced through the sentries that guard these worlds, whose fields of vision you must evade in order to find safe passage and the eventual resynchronisation of the worlds.

The Semispheres Limited Edition includes a Semispheres game card, a 16 pages game manual, a soundtrack CD, an individually numbered certificate and a collector’s box. The Semispheres Limited Edition will be available exclusively at online retailer Play-Asia.com.

Published by Vivid Helix in North America & Japan and by eastasiasoft in Europe & Southeast Asia, Semispheres for PS Vita will be available digitally on the PlayStation Store for US$9.99/€9.99. The Limited Edition will be released at the same time for a special pre-order exclusive price of US$24.99. You can check out the release trailer below:
