If you’ve been waiting for Greg Johnson and HumaNature’s Doki-Doki Universe, then at least now you know the wait is coming to an end.
For those unfamiliar with Doki-Doki Universe, the game follows a robot named QT3, who has to prove his humanity by helping others on other planets to avoid getting recalled and scrapped. The game is meant to help players learn more about themselves, a mash-up of genres and ideas that includes RPG elements, adventure elements, and a variety of personality quizzes and comedy, all stuffed into one game that’s meant to be as fun to play as it is informative.
Doki-Doki Universe will be coming next week on Tuesday, December 10th for the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. The full game will be available for $14.99, and will include a story mode, 31 personality quizzes, and the Doki-Doki Mail messaging system. But, as previously reported, gamers can test the waters with a free Starter Pack, which offers 16 personality quizzes, the Doki-Doki Mail, QT3’s home planet and a tutorial planet. As part of the Cross-Buy feature, players can also receive all three versions of the game by purchasing Doki-Doki Universe just once.
The PlayStation Blog offered a sneak peak at one such story players will encounter on the planet Brrr, where QT3 has to help an insecure young snowman named Junior who is ashamed of the fact that he can’t stand the cold. Although Junior is scared of telling his father, his father is equally worried about Junior’s always getting sick. In this scenario, players have to help them resolve their problems by conjuring up items and helping them communicate. Gamers can actually want this level by checking out the official PlayStation channel on Twitch, where they can also ask questions and receive voucher codes for the full version of the game.
