A new game announced at E3 from Playful is coming to PSVR — Star Child.
Playful is the creator of Rift launch title Lucky’s Tale, a groundbreaking game that explored platforming in VR. Star Child would be the company’s second VR title, though Playful also announced a sequel to Lucky’s Tale for traditional screens.
Details are sparse right now but Star Child looks like an evolved action platformer that aims to evolve the genre we grew to love with Mario on traditional screens and take it much further than Lucky’s Tale in VR. It is described as an “immersive new sci-fi platform adventure” in the teaser video’s description.
Playful is a Texas-based studio with an experienced team that jumped deep into VR early on. The developers there began experimenting very rapidly to produce a series of prototypes and find what works in VR. We don’t know much right now about Star Child, but we have high expectations after Lucky’s Tale. It was an adorable game and Super Lucky’s Tale, its sequel, will likely make Playful a much more well-known studio when it arrives.
