Esper: The Collection Launches with Week Long Discount

Last month Coatsink Software revealed the upcoming launch of its Esper: The Collection title. Supporting the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) it features both puzzle titles, Esper and Esper 2 in one package for the very first time. And not only will the package allow players to get their hands on both videogames for one all in price, but for the first week there will also be a further discount.

For the next week from today Oculus Rift owners buying Esper: The Collection will be able to get 33 percent off the regular price, dropping the cost down from £10.99 GBP to £7.99.

Both titles originally appeared on the Samsung Gear VR, and Coatsink has not forgotten the system. Both Esper and Esper 2 on Gear VR will have a 50 percent discount available for the next 7 days.

The series revolves around players having telekinetic abilities. Esper is a first-person puzzle game set in 1975 when members of the public begin to display extra-sensory abilities. So the government under the guise of national security starts forcing citizens to undergo rigorous aptitude tests. As one of these people, players will be ‘encouraged’ by a government contractor to prove they are not a threat by completing various tests using their telekinesis.

Then for Esper 2 Coatsink expanded the videogame further, moving beyond the confines of the lab taking the player on a telekinetic adventure across the globe. Alongside the expanded gameplay Esper 2 is most notable for the introduction of new characters voiced by actors Nick Frost, Lara Pulver and Sean Pertwee, who join Eric Meyers, the vocal talent from the original game.

VRFocus reviewed Esper 2 back in December 2015, giving it our highest rating. For all the latest VR releases keep reading VRFocus.
