Zoink Games and publisher Perp Games brand new PSVR title Ghost Giant will soon be in the hands (or faces?) of players everywhere as it launches on April 16 via the PlayStation store, but for those who prefer to get their hands on the physical version, some good news is coming your way. The beautifully wholesome adventure puzzle story is making its way to North American retailers on Tuesday, May 7, exclusively for PSVR.

Ghost Giant is a puzzle adventure title that sees a young boy called Louis befriend a giant ghost that is only visible to him and no-one else. The player will take the reins as the Ghost Giant and slowly acquire Louis’ trust by guiding him through a manner of obstacles which can be overwhelming at times for the young boy, but by doing this, you (the Ghost Giant) and Louis will create and establish the true meaning of friendship throughout the gameplay.

As you take control of the Ghost Giant, you will get the chance to delve into the creative world of Sancourt, whereby using your giant size and the strengths that come with that to your advantage, you can help its dwellers with problems they face on a daily basis. Along the way, players can manipulate their environment in different ways while also uncovering hidden secrets.

As players make their way around the interactive world of Sancourt, you will be able to engage with so much of the environment around you like peek into windows, open doors and interact with the townsfolk while exploring the harbor. Ghost Giant truly sounds like a title many players could get lost in for hours.

The Ghost Giant physical version features include:

  • Dollhouse Town Tinkering – Using the PlayStation®Move Motion controllers, players
    can peek into, rotate and open individual houses to reveal the stories going on inside as
    the occupants go about their daily lives
  • Vibrant Sancourt Setting – Players will explore the harbor, nooks, and crannies of the
    town, Louis’ sunflower farm, and the local junkyard to solve puzzles. In addition, players
    can interact with items throughout the world, pulling plants, lifting vehicles, and fully
    immerse themselves in the tactile experience
  • Heartfelt, Compelling Story – The sandbox experience is enriched by a sincere story
    created in collaboration with Swedish writer Sara B Elfgren, well-known for her
    Engelsfors Trilogy, which has been translated into 25 different languages and even
    adapted into film
  • Neighborhood Watch – While Louis is the only character that can see the player, the
    Ghost Giant can also interact with other residents, leaning in to listen to the locals’
    conversations, plucking hats off a passerby’s head or interacting with the nearby
    environment to generate a response.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game
