Deemo is a 2013 mobile game in which you tap on the screen using your fingers, like a piano, to the tune of various music tracks. Deemo -Reborn- which was just announced today with PSVR support, is a total re-imagining of that original rhythm-based music game. We’re just not sure how well the format will transition to a VR interface.
Make no mistake: DEEMO -Reborn- sounds like it will have an absolutely mesmerizing and beautiful soundtrack, but I’m honestly at a loss for how exactly the screen-tapping concept will translate to PSVR. The debut trailer from TGS today only really shows the flat, PS4 version and not the PSVR version so I’m left with more questions than answers.
You can see it below:
“DEEMO -Reborn- is not just a remake of the original; this new version adds even more gameplay elements, new voice acting, more cinematic cutscenes and PlayStation VR support,” states a prepared statement. “As a little girl who finds herself lost in a magical castle, players will unravel the mystery of DEEMO and this fanciful world. The detailed scenery and exploration elements invite players tol dive deep into the mystic world through puzzle solving and DEEMO‘s signature musical gameplay.”
The only gameplay mechanic I can imagine working would be some sort of spatial drumming? I guess? Perhaps something similar to how the orb drumming works in Electronauts, perhaps? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
