Independent studio Pixel Reef has announced Paper Beast, the poetic journey through a blossoming virtual world by renowned game designer Eric Chahi, will release March 24 for PlayStation VR.
The new game from Chahi, the creative mind behind Another World, Heart of Darkness and From Dust, is a dreamlike odyssey through a wild, simulated ecosystem. In this strange, uncharted world, form delicate bonds with fascinating and exotic creatures, solve environmental puzzles, and unfold the mysteries of a land born from long-lost Internet data.
Created from the ground up for virtual reality, Paper Beast invites intrepid explorers to understand this dreamlike world through the real-time consequences they create. In adventure mode, collaborate with fascinating wildlife and shape the environment to overcome obstacles or resolve puzzles, with everything from weather and terrain deformation to the way animals respond fully simulated.
The almost-infinite play space of the sandbox mode approximates a god game experience, where experimentation and ecosystem play a major role. The player can sculpt the terrain, play with the weather, and interact with creatures and plants. All consequences are calculated in real-time by the deep physics engine that powers Paper Beast.
Paper Beast unfurls its virtual world for PlayStation VR March 24. More details can be found on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and the Pixel Reef website. Subscribe to the newsletter to receive the latest news about Paper Beast.
