Looking for something a little different to play on PSVR? there’s a chance you might be interested in MyDearest’s Tokyo Chronos.
The VR visual novel, which started life under a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign, is coming to Sony’s headset on August 22. At least, that’s in Japan. We don’t know if the game’s planned for release in the west around the same time. That said, it’s already available on the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive with full support for the English language, so we’d expect the localized PSVR release to be around the same time too.
Tokyo Chronos adapts the niche visual novel genre to VR for the first time. In the game, you join a group of school friends in a deserted version of Tokyo. Exploring the abandoned city together, you have to figure out how you got here and where everyone else has gone.
The PSVR version of the game will be getting a full disc-based release in Japan. In a follow-up tweet the team said a physical version of the game had been a “long-felt wish”.

It’s definitely a game for a specific audience. Personally, I found the slow pacing and reliance on text to be far too tedious. However the game’s got a positive overall rating on Steam and certainly seems to have found a home with existing fans of the genre. If you think it might be to your liking then, by all means, give it a try.
