One of PlayStation® VR’s biggest releases of 2019 is getting a physical release at launch!
Zoink Games, part of the Thunderful family, and Perp Games are thrilled to announce that Ghost Giant will have a simultaneous physical and digital launch, this spring.
Originally revealed during E3, this is one of the most highly sought after PlayStation® VR exclusive titles of the year. Ghost Giant comes from the developers behind Stick it to the Man, Fe, and Flipping Death.
This exciting puzzle adventure filled with warmth and charm sees a lonely boy named Louis befriend a giant ghost visible only to him. As the Ghost Giant, you’ll have to carefully build trust with Louis and help him through small, big and sometimes overwhelmingly huge obstacles, discovering the true meaning of friendship along the way.
Ghost Giant has already received critical acclaim from various outlets, with Tech Radar calling it a ‘Beautifully designed game’ Comic Book saying it’s ‘the most promising looking PSVR game’ and VR Focus saying Ghost Giant is ‘a wonderful Toyland Adventure’ and ‘one of the standout VR titles of E3’.
As the Ghost Giant, you will get to explore the world of Sancourt, helping its citizens with all manner of day to day problems by using your size and strength. Ghost Giant offers a unique, crafty-looking dollhouse world which can be manipulated in multiple ways and is full of hidden secrets.
Zoink’s aim with Ghost Giant is to recreate the feel of exploring a doll’s house in VR by lifting furniture off the roof and playing around with trinkets and furniture inside, while also giving players a purpose and sense of scale to deliver something truly special and memorable. You’re not just a manipulator from outside the screen, you’re really in there, participating in Louis’ world and being recognized by him as his friend.
Of this very special announcement, Olov Redmalm, Art and Creative Director at Zoink Games says “Warmly welcome to Sancourt! I’m absolutely thrilled that we’re getting a physical release of Ghost Giant by Perp Games. With their line of great VR game releases, we feel right at home. The team at Zoink Games hopes that through Ghost Giant you will experience something quite unique in both VR and storytelling! We’re very proud of the game and it handles a topic we’re all really passionate about. So buckle up, ready your handkerchiefs (just in case things get emotional) and prepare to become the Ghost Giant.”
Ghost Giant has been written in collaboration with Swedish writer, Sara Bergmark Elfgren, who’s work has been translated into 25 different languages, and is perhaps best known for her Engelsfors Trilogy. This gives players a whole new perspective on VR by pushing the boundaries of physical interaction with emotionally compelling storytelling.
Releasing a physical release at the same time as digital offers everyone the opportunity to explore the world of Sancourt, however they choose to play their games, from day one. Perp are honored to work on such an exciting project and cannot wait to bring it to market.
Rob Edwards, MD of Perp Games, is delighted to work on Ghost Giant and talks about the incredible slate of games Perp have coming up. “Ghost Giant is what VR is all about. A warm, heartwrenching story that fully immerses you into the world. We are so excited to be working with Zoink Games on one of the most anticipated VR games of 2019.”
Ghost Giant will arrive exclusively on PlayStation® VR in Spring 2019 and will receive a boxed release in EU territories. A North American date will follow.
