Vertigo Games released a teaser trailer to celebrate the announcement, as well as a selection of magical screenshots captured on Meta Quest 2.
“Since we started to work on Maskmaker we were hoping for a release on Quest 2 as we've always been convinced that this title, an adventure full of wonder and mystery, would perfectly fit with the Quest 2 audience. Thanks to our publishing partnership with Vertigo Games and our work with the Incarna team on tightening performance for Quest 2, we're really excited to see the game finally coming on this platform and looking this great!” said Balthazar Auxietre, Creative Director at Innerspace VR.
“We’re incredibly excited about this magical addition to our line-up of VR adventure games from none other than the talented team at Innerspace, who previously brought us the industry-favorite A Fisherman’s Tale,” said Kimara Rouwit, Director of Publishing at Vertigo Games. “We’re incredibly excited to expand our successful publishing partnership with them further.”

From mask-to-mask and puzzle-to-puzzle, explore your way through the "mask realm" to seek Prospero who appears to rule it and ultimately unravel the secret of this identity. Maskmaker provides a captivating VR adventure full of mystery and a sense of constant wonder.
