March saw indie developer Other Ocean release virtual reality (VR) Giant Cop: Justice Above All for Oculus Rift and Touch. Today, the studio has announced it’ll be launching the videogame for HTC Vive tomorrow.
In Giant Cop: Justice Above All, players police Micro City as an enormous officer than can pick up criminals and throw them into a police station. There are bank heists to foil, car chases to stop and all manner of other criminal activities to fend off to keep the city in check.
”Other Ocean is excited to extend Giant Cop to the Vive community” said Deirdre Ayre, Other Ocean’s Head of Operations in a statement. “We had a great initial release on Oculus, but also received feedback that has helped with general adjustments while optimizing the game for Vive. We’re currently optimizing for PSVR as well and plan to release later in the summer,” added Ayre.
” A key feature in Giant Cop is the open world in which you can explore. Players can expect a 3-4 hour gameplay experience uncovering the crime syndicate that threatens Micro City,” said Ryan Hale, Studio Head for Other Ocean. “Our team deliberately built Micro City with sandbox gameplay in mind, if you want to just explore the world and find hidden interactive objects you can do that too – it’s limitless really.”
VRFocus reviewed Giant Cop: Justice Above All at launch saying: “Other Ocean Interactive has created wonderfully intricate cityscapes, with a beautiful art style that encourages you to get in there and explore.”
Additionally, Other Ocean is partnered with entertainment company SKYBOUND Entertainment, which allows The Walking Dead characters and Easter Eggs to be integrated into Giant Cop: Justice Above All exclusively to SKYBOUND Insiders – a free membership program which gives Giant Cop owners updates, special offers and future merchandise features.
Giant Cop: Justice Above All will release on Steam and Humble Store bfor HTC Vive tomorrow, 30th May, 2017, at $24.99 USD.
