Calling for stars is an upcoming puzzle game for the Independent Team SteamVR headsets Monarch Studio. The studio announced its arrival on PC VR on April 2 and will arrive on Quest “shortly thereafter”.
Described as a ‘fast paced virtual reality puzzle solving game’, Calling for stars tasks you with solving puzzles as fast as possible. The game is said to include 30 puzzles which are randomized to make things different every time you play.

If you’re wondering why you’d be stuck in a hole deciphering runes and playing with a trippy and shiny pairing puzzle, here’s how Monarch Studio describes it:
The once virgin temple has become overgrown and messy, you return to flounder in the newly formed life and finish your life’s work; the ritual to the stars.
As a Starcaller, you must race against the clock to restore as many temple walls as possible to their former glory. When night finally sets in, you must complete the final ritual; send as many falling star shards as possible into the night sky.
Monarch is a new studio formed after its founders were laid off from their day job at an unnamed B2B studio working on VR applications.
âWe decided to take the risk and work for free to create a game together in the hopes of launching our business,â Monarch said. âWe are there, available soon and happy to share this with everyone! “
Calling for stars will be available on To smoke for “around Â£ 15” (~ $ 20), depending on the studio. Shortly thereafter, the game is expected to launch on Quest through App Lab, the platform’s unmoderated point of sale for games outside of the official Oculus store.
