With the release of Astro Bot Rescue Mission and Moss, PlayStation VR took a significant step forward in 2018. Both the length and quality of these titles raised the bar for PSVR games and proved that the headset is capable of supporting more than small releases.
Luckily, there are more VR titles on the PS4’s horizon that look like they will continue to provide players with fully fleshed out experiences. While a number of announced PSVR games seem promising, we decided to pick out the best three that we think will prove to be more than tech demos.
Unveiled at E3 2018, Ghost Giant is a puzzle game with a charming art style that seems to be a mash-up of Tearaway and Night in the Woods, and the footage shown off by Zoink Games left many PSVR owners intrigued.
You play from the first person perspective of a ghost that befriends a lonely boy named Louis. Louis is the only creature that can see you and the two of you travel around the town of Sancourt helping the citizens.
The gameplay will primarily focus on puzzles that involve manipulation of the world to find the solutions. Zoink Games has also said that exploration will play an essential role in the game as there will be many secrets to find and characters to meet around town.
While the developers have not specified a length for Ghost Giant, the emphasis on exploring the game’s environment will hopefully mean that the game’s world feels dense and alive.
Placing players in the role of a large spectral figure who helps an adorable creature solve puzzles will undoubtedly invite comparisons to Moss, but hopefully, Zoink Games can iterate on the groundwork laid by past VR games to create something extraordinary.
