It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Ghost Giant. The PSVR exclusive was first announced at E3 last year, but we’ve barely seen it since. Rest assured, though, the game is still on its way. In fact, it now has a publisher.
UK-based Perp Games today announced that it will launch the game both digitally and physically in EU territories this spring. A physical release will follow later in North America, though the game should launch around the same time digitally. Perp has specialized in publishing indie PSVR games over the past year; it published Smash Hit Plunder in late 2018 and will soon release the console version of Sairento VR.
Developed by Fe creator Zoink Games, Ghost Giant is another VR game in which the player befriends smaller creatures. You form a bond with a small boy called Louis and explore the world of Sancourt, assisting the town with issues. The world around you is like a model village with houses you can peer into by lifting off roofs and moving furniture. Its art style is absolutely gorgeous and there seems to be extensive voice acting.
It’s an idea we’ve seen explored in the likes of Moss and Astro Bot and we’re hoping Ghost Giant takes it to the next level. When we saw the game at E3 we said it was charming; games editor David Jagneaux also wrote: “Ghost Giant does not currently have a publicly announced release date, but my gut tells me we’ll be getting this game in 2018 and won’t have to wait too long.”
Nice work there, David. There’s no specific release date for the game yet but we’ll let you know as soon as we do.
