De­vel­oper Pol­yarc Pub­lisher SIE For­mat PSVR Re­lease TBA

EDGE - - SONY@E3 -

Talk about small fry. Tucked away in the slim se­lec­tion of PSVR ti­tles re­vealed at Sony’s con­fer­ence was this charm­ing fairy­tale plat­former. Turn the pages of an in­ter­ac­tive book, and the story un­folds: one day, a mouse named Quill finds a mag­i­cal stone that sum­mons you – her guardian an­gel. Stan­dard third­per­son plat­form­ing con­trols feel fa­mil­iar, but you’ll need to reach into the world with your om­nipo­tent, mo­tion-con­trolled touch to move ob­jects and lower bridges to grant Quill safe pas­sage. You rely on each other’s abil­i­ties, fac­ing and overcoming chal­lenges that the de­vel­op­ers hope will foster an emo­tional con­nec­tion be­tween player and pro­tag­o­nist. Re­ally, we’re just ex­cited that this new breed of plat­former could be com­ing into its own – the likes of Ro­bot Res­cue have showed you don’t have to be spring­ing around in first­per­son to feel im­mersed in vir­tual re­al­ity. A qui­etly in­trigu­ing high­light of PSVR’s sec­ond E3.
