Today on PlayStation Blog Penny Black Studios, a new game company made up of former Crytek (Crysis Series) employees, announced its first game How We Soar for PlayStation VR.
In How We Soar, the player flies around as a Phoenix and explores a enchanting world, which is really the minds and memories of “The Author”, to try and piece together the story of the author’s life. In terms of the gameplay and the environment, the developers had the following to say:
Your Phoenix can gain great speed as you fly, giving a thrilling VR experience as you rush past the environment. Or you can just take it easy, even slowing down to a hover, just so you can take in the scenery. How you fly is entirely up to you!
Everything from the environment to the characters to the Phoenix itself is fashioned in a unique papercraft art style, giving everything you see a very distinct and tactile appearance. One of the coolest things about the game is how you interact with the world around you. Each level that you enter will appear strangely shredded, torn and unfolded.
You can look at some screenshots and the reveal trailer below. How We Soar is slated to come out in Q4 2016 for PlayStation VR.
