Farhaven is an upcoming augmented reality game from developer Patch & Path. It will be heading for iOS devices on February 5th and is available to pre-order now. The devs hope it will become a way for players to escape into another world whilst having to stay at home in these uncertain times.
In essence, Farhaven aims to be a classic point-and-click adventure that will be brought to life in AR. The story follows four friends who hail from the titular land of Farhaven and are in need of your assistance. They are called Ruka, Diso, Oops and Muun.
Specifically, they'll need your intelligence, smarts and inventory as you look to return the kingdom to its former glory. This will mostly take the form of a series of simple puzzles that Patch & Path say will provide fun for all the family. You can check out some gameplay from Farhaven in the embedded trailer below.
Though the game uses augmented reality, it won't take the form that has been popularized by the likes of Pokemon Go where you're required to constantly be on the move. Instead, Farhaven has been designed so that you can play it in a fixed location.
To play Farhaven, you will need an ARKit compatible Apple device which means an iPhone6/6 Plus, iPad or iPad Mini 5th gen, iPod Touch 7th gen or beyond. Of course, it will also work on any iPad Pro. They also recommend having a good amount of artificial or natural lighting whenever you choose to play.
Farhaven is available to pre-order now over on the App Store ahead of its launch on February 5th. It will be a premium title that will cost $7.99, but is $3.99 during pre-order.Looking for more point-and-click adventure games to play on your phone? Here are 25 of the best available on mobile devices
