Developer Zoink Games – the studio behind Stick it to the Man, Fe, and Flipping Death – has announced that its adorable virtual reality puzzle-adventure Ghost Giant will launch on PSVR on April 16th.
Ghost Giant – a collaboration between Zoink and Swedish writer Sara Bergmark Elfgren – tells the story of Louis, a young boy living on a sunflower farm, on the outskirts of town, with his mother. “Life isn’t always that easy though,” explains Zoink, “and Louis is incredibly lonely”. That’s where you, in the role of the titular Ghost Giant, come in.
Ghost Giant is somewhat reminiscent of last year’s wonderful VR adventure Moss. As in that game, players are cast as a towering, omnipotent presence, able to manipulate the world around them in order to assist their tiny charge – in this case Louis.
