FuturLab made its virtual reality (VR) debut back in 2017 with the launch of Tiny Trax for PlayStation VR. Now, the studio has announced that’s its follow-up title Mini-Mecha Mayhem will be coming to Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE) headset in Q1 2019.
Mini-Mech Mayhem is a comedy-infused tabletop battle experience which sees players take the form of robot avatars partnered with cute little mechs to battle opponents as a team.
With both single-player and up to four-player online support, Mini-Mech Mayhem enables players to command their little robot with a series of actions, from moving several spaces in a certain direction, taking a shot at an opponent’s particular limb, or simply activating a special ability like an air strike, there are numerous ways to defeat your enemies.
Much like a game of chess, strategy is everything. With up to three enemies on the board at one time, leaving yourself open to attack can mean the end of the game, so you need to keep an eye on everyone. If you do find yourself backed into a corner then play some power cards to get your team back on track.
“We’re delighted to finally reveal Mini-Mech Mayhem – we’ve made a bunch of very fun games in the past, but we’ve never really made a funny game. This is hilarious and should appeal to anyone that enjoys a tabletop game night with their friends, only now they can play together remotely in VR!” said FuturLab MD James Marsden in a statement.
Exclusive to PlayStation VR, Mini-Mech Mayhem also includes free chat with social comfort features, combined with huge customisation options for both mech and avatar. The title is scheduled to arrive in Q1 2019.
