Zoink Games’ Ghost Giant will soon be arriving on PlayStation VR, with a digital release date of next Tuesday, 16th April. Last month the studio also revealed a collaboration with Perp Games to create a physical version, set to hit European shelves on 19th April. Today, the pair have revealed Ghost Giant will also get a retail store release in North America.
Looking to be one of the more unique virtual reality (VR) title to hit PlayStation VR this Spring, Ghost Giant will be arriving at retailers such as Amazon, GameStop and Target on Tuesday, 7th May 2019, retailing for $29.99 USD.
Based in Gothenburg, Sweden, this will be Zoink Games’ first virtual reality (VR) experience for PlayStation VR. Set in the interactive, colourful world of Sancourt, the title is a puzzle adventure where players are the titular Ghost Giant. An invisible entity visible only to a little lonely boy named Louis, who is eager to make a new friend, players need to build trust with Louis by helping him with various challenges.
Very much like Pillow’s Willow VR Studios’ Spark of Light, players will find the landscape wrapped around them, so they can interact with all the levels and the characters that inhabit them, peering into their tiny world and helping them out when needed.
Two PlayStation Move controllers are required to interact with the videogame, so that players can rotate and open individual houses to reveal the stories going on inside as the occupants go about their daily lives, or simply go about pulling plants and lifting vehicles. There are several levels to explore including the town, harbour, Louis’ sunflower farm and the local junkyard.
Alongside Ghost Giant, Perp Games will be bringing several other PlayStation VR titles to retail stores, including Squishies from German indie developer Brainseed Factory and The Wizards – Enhanced Edition by Carbon Studio.
Ghost Giant is a PlayStation VR exclusive developed by Zoink Games and published by Perp Games. It’ll arrive first on PlayStation Store on 16th April, then on European shelves from 19th April and finally North American stores on 7th May 2019. For any further updates, keep reading VRFocus.
