Hey everyone, thank you so much for your heartfelt support of Moss
and the Polyarc team during these past months of development. From visiting our booths at places like PAX and Gamescom, to sending us feedback on social media, your interest in our hero Quill and the world we’re building has been a great source of motivation during the homestretch.

We’ve been looking forward to the day we’d finally be able to get the full game in your hands and I’m happy to announce that we now concretely know when that day will be. Next Tuesday, 27th February, 2018, you’ll be able to enter the world of Moss through PlayStation VR and join Quill on her incredible journey.

TITLE

To celebrate this announcement, we’ve also released the Moss Launch trailer which you can see above, that provides a glimpse of Quill’s story, more gameplay, and some of the fantastic places you’ll travel with her.

We hope this latest preview of Moss conveys what we set out to do: make a game that everyone can enjoy – early VR adopters, casual gamers, and truly, anyone looking for an exciting new experience.

TITLE

As I talked about last June in my PlayStation Blog during E3 2017, our aim at Polyarc has been to make the most of the immersive, interactive potential of VR to build new worlds and tell new stories.

It’s been a great challenge creating Moss, but working with this technology and discovering the possibilities has been a deeply rewarding experience. None of this would have been possible without the energy and effort of every person here at Polyarc. I’m so proud of what we’ve created, and proud to be a part of this team that worked so hard to bring Quill and Moss to life.

TITLE

And now, in just eight days, players around the world will finally be able to experience the game we’ve had the privilege to build. We created Moss for you, so please let us know what you think. We can’t wait to hear from you.

Thank you.

For those of you who haven’t heard about Symmetry yet – it’s a survival management game, set in sci-fi universe, coming to PS4 tomorrow, 20th February.

You control a crew of astronauts sent on a space research mission in hope of finding a new home for humanity. At some point you receive a mysterious signal coming from a seemingly unknown planet and decide to check it out. The landing goes wrong and the group ends up separated from each other.

Some of the crew members are lucky enough to be scattered near the old shelter, which is your only hope for survival in the cold and harsh environment.

Symmetry

Bring them home

The goal of Symmetry is to repair the broken shuttle called “Miner 4” and eventually escape from the hostile planet.

In order to do so you need to gather all the necessary repair parts, and fix the ship broken modules one by one.

Don’t forget about taking care of the life functions crucial for the survivors’ existence – they need food, rest and warmth. You may want them to develop new skills, like botany or electrical operations, in order to stand a chance of survival.

There’s one more thing. The longer you stay on the planet the more you have the impression that you’re not alone.

Crew members start to feel some ominous presence that seems to be all around. It starts with subtle hallucinations and becomes worse after each day spent there.

Symmetry

Survival mode

When you finally manage to finish the main storyline, you can not only consider yourself as a seasoned space commander, but you also unlock the New Game + called here “Survival Mode”.

At this point things change drastically. “Miner 4” can’t be repaired, you’re trapped on the desolate planet, which becomes even more hostile and no rescue whatsoever is coming. You start your journey towards the inevitable death, while the only question is – how long will you survive?

To help you visualize how hopeless you are let’s go through some of the factors that may bring you closer to your imminent end.

Starting with the planet itself, where temperature drops to -110 degrees Celsius at night, it takes only a moment to become a human-shaped icicle. Deadly snowstorms happen almost daily, not to mention the brutal earthquakes that can turn your flimsy shelter into your own grave.

What about the space nutrition? Unfortunately you start with no food at all, and in order to get some you need to grow it in a special capsule.

Watching some movie classics about being a cosmic farmer may give you an idea, but it’s definitely not a cake walk, considering the limited resources and broken equipment. You may even take the outer space recycling to a whole new level and put your dead friend’s corpse in a freezer.

Symmetry

The rusty shelter, which is supposed to protect you from the outside environment, is at the same time one of your worst enemies. It offers a great diversity of life support systems which can break anytime, exterminating your crew on the occasion. Malfunctioning regeneration chambers, faulty heating system, power blackouts – you name it.

Even if you’re not among the people hopping on the recent space colonisation bandwagon you should definitely try Symmetry and its Survival mode. Let us know how many days you survive in the comments section!

Hey PlayStation fans. PlayStationers? Whatever. Big news — Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality PlayStation VR is coming on 10th April, 2018.

Virtual Rick-ality is an adventure game that immerses you in the strange and unusual world of the Rick and Morty TV series.

You’ll solve puzzles, get yelled at by Rick, and even fix an intergalactic car along the way. You can also pick up a diverse range of crap and throw it at your favorite Rick and Morty characters, for better or worse.

Never let it be said that PlayStation is not a place where everyone can feel at home. PS Store’s ongoing Games Under €5 promotion features a vast line-up of great, unique and interesting indie titles to suit just about every taste – and we really mean every.

Among a fine collection of classy action-platformers, classic strategy games and brutal arcade shooters there’s also a small selection of something altogether more unusual – things that… defy description.

Nonetheless, we thought we’d have a go! So here you are: 10 totally bonkers titles, that you can – and should – pick up for a fistful of pocket change, this weekend.

1. Oh… Sir! The Insult Simulator

Oddball

A celebration of that great British tradition of verbosity, Oh… Sir! invites you and your friends to elevate your verbal sparring abilities above common slur and admonish your opponents in truly Shakespearean fashion.

Made for multiplayer, the ingenious system involves cobbling together the most loquacious insults you can muster from a randomly generated collection of terms. He or she whom creates the greatest offense wins, so get insulting, you lollygagging, waffle-faced sewer pie!

2. I Am Bread

Of all the fantastic adventures you imagined video games might one day deliver, who could have ever guessed we’d get to take on the roll of a slice of bread?

Well, in 2015, this technical marvel finally came to pass. In I Am Bread, your mission is to guide your chosen piece of glutinous goodness from one side of a hazard-chocked room to the other and deposit yourself into a toaster.

Sounds simple? For an agile human perhaps, but for a simple slab of sourdough – not even remotely!

3. Octodad: Dadliest Catch

It’s not every day that a cephalopod dons a hat and suit and begins masquerading as a hardworking family man, but that’s exactly what you’ll be doing if you pick up Octodad: Dadliest catch.

It might sound mundane, but it’s anything but… taking charge of your unruly betentacled body will require patience and dexterity, moving each limb independently to complete ordinary tasks like the weekly shop, tidying the house or – god forbid – a trip to the aquarium.

Try not to get yourself into a tangle, eh?

4. Her Majesty’s SPIFFING

Oddball

Another chance to come over all unspeakably British, Her Majesty’s SPIFFING is a truly one-of-a-kind game in which the iconic British monarch HR Liz II has tasked a humble team of her fellow Brits to set off into the cosmos and look for a new world to populate.

Manning a shuttle shaped after the Westminster clock tower – good old ‘Big Ben’ – you’ll have navigate the stars solving puzzles, exchanging witty banter and fighting crippling claustrophobia before – in all likelihood – being baked alive by cosmic radiation.

For queen, for country… and for the bantz!

5. Push Me Pull You

Oddball

Quite a sight to behold, this one. Grab hold of a friend and convince them to join you in a sausage-like spin on sumo wrestling involving a bright red ball and a pair of conjoined human slinky toys.

Okay, this one really does defy description, but it is bizarrely good fun. Not only will you and your team mate be sharing the same body, you’ll even be sharing the same controller so make sure it’s somebody you like!

Best played with the curtains closed!

6. Surgeon Simulator: Anniversary Edition

Oddball

A sterling celebration of medical malpractice, Surgeon Simulator might not be the most accurate recreation of invasive surgical procedure but it is bloody good fun.

Take on the role – well, one arm – of hapless surgeon Nigel Burke as he attempts an assortment of life-altering procedures on his trusting patient Bob. Expect internal organs to go flopping everywhere in blackly-comic fashion as you attempt to complete operations on everything from kidneys to back teeth.

7. ClusterTruck

Oddball

A truly bizarre take on the platforming genre, ClusterTruck tasks you to complete an increasingly hazardous series of levels in which the main aim is to jump end-to-end along a convoy of moving trucks.

Straight-forward enough it would seem – if slightly death-defying – but things will only get dicier as lasers, swinging hammers and the occasional flamethrower are introduced to the fray.

TL;DR: it’s The Floor Is Lava meets Convoy… with flamethrowers.

8. Manual Samuel

Having made a deal with Death, handsome, wealthy and recently deceased Samuel has one last chance at life: he simply needs to get through one full day manually…

How manually? Well, it’ll be up to your to guide spoiled rich-kid Samuel through 24 hours managing every movement from blinking and breathing to taking a leak or driving a car – it’s all on you. Also, Death will be tagging along just to giggle at your hapless progress.

The perfect title for anyone that’s heavily into puppeteering!

9. Hatoful Boyfriend

Dating sims… they’re nothing new right? How about a dating sim with pigeons? How about a dating sim set in a school run entirely by and for birds? Welcome to the absolutely surreal world of Hatoful Boyfriend, where – as the only human in the entire school – you’ll need to negotiate all the usual tribulations of high school life whilst also wooing an entirely avian student faculty.

If that’s not mad enough, the dark twists and turns of unfolding story – as romance and rivalry give way to crimes of passion – are something you’ll never see coming.

10. Super Meat Boy

Oddball

Last up, it’s Super Meat Boy: a hardcore old-school platformer that might not have been remarkable enough to make this list if it weren’t for the fact you’ll be playing as a gelatinous cube of sentient meat.

That’s pretty left-field, but that’s only half the story. You’ll be completing level after level of brutally bloody platforming challenges in order to save your bandage-wrapped girlfriend from the clutches of an evil, tuxedo-wearing foetus… that lives in a jar.

Macabre as it might sound, it’s often touted as one of the best 2D platformers of the generation, so if that kind of thing is your jam, don’t sleep on this.

Hello, PlayStation fans! I’m Alexandra, the Community Manager at Zoink Games, and today I’m here to talk with you about Fe.

For the last couple of years, we’ve been living and breathing the forest you’ll soon get the chance to discover yourself. We’re so excited to hear your thoughts when Fe launches on PlayStation 4 tomorrow, 16th February!

In Fe, you take on the role of a young cub waking up in a forest glade. You are alone. You don’t know who you are, or what you’re doing here. But if you keep your eyes open, you’ll soon discover other inhabitants of the forest. Gain their trust, and they might share their secrets and lead you forward in your adventure.

The Zombie Vikings easter egg that became a full game

It seems so long ago since we first snuck a prototype of Fe into our old title Zombie Vikings as an easter egg. In the middle of playing a hack and slash brawler filled with bad puns and monsters, players were suddenly cast into a lush forest full of beauty – and danger. This was something unlike anything Zoink had ever done before, and I’m sure a lot of people were surprised by the sudden change of art style.

But the Zoink core of storytelling is still there, only in a different way. In Fe, you’ll use your voice to form relationships with the inhabitants of the forest.

To take on the Silent Ones, a new threat that recently arrived in the area, you need to work together with your new friends, jump, glide and fly to get through tricky areas and hostile environments.

How Fe is inspired by Swedish childhood

Fe is very much inspired by our own childhoods in Sweden. It’s hard to avoid the forest when most of the country is covered by it, and it served as a playground and a place for adventures. Thick pines, small trails coated in fir needles, slender birches and croaking toads all gave their own touch to a world that was both playful and a little bit scary at times.

TITLE TITLETITLE

After some initial gentle pushes in the right direction, we’ll leave you to discover all the world’s nooks and crannies for yourself. You’ll soon realize some areas will be hard to reach before learning the oh-so-important skills of climbing and gliding. These are just two of the abilities you’ll be able to unlock and make use of throughout the game.

Hopefully, your journey with Fe will be just as enjoyable for you as it’s been for us. Enjoy your time in the forest!

This is Masaru Oyamada from Square Enix. I am the producer for the Secret of Mana remake. I have been working on the Mana series since 2006, when I had the opportunity to work alongside series creator, Ishii Koichi, on porting Final Fantasy Adventure (Seiken Densetsu – Final Fantasy Gaiden) to mobile phone platforms.

As a fan, I first played Final Fantasy Adventure in 1991 and since then I have completed every game in this series and grew a passion for the franchise.

I was one of many who felt great disappointment at there being no new Mana games after Mr. Ishii left the company. In 2014, when I was working on Rise of Mana, I had heard from many fans who wanted to play the previous titles in the series, but were unable to do so on current generation hardware. As such, I worked to remake Final Fantasy Adventure in 2016. Since then, there were many voices stating that they wanted to see a port of Secret of Mana globally, which now brings us to this remake.

Having finally arrived at release day, I look back over the development and I feel that the hardest challenge we had to overcome was recreating the world map that is used when flying on Flammie. We had to alter the basic system, as well as tweak the visual design, in order to convert the way the flat terrain was depicted from the original into 3D, and making sure that everything still fit together properly.

TITLE

What I am most pleased with in the remake is the penultimate scene with the three heroes, just before they face the last boss. This was already a very emotional scene in the original game, but the remake enhances the drama even more with the new voices, 3D models and music, which is why I like it so much.

TITLE

We invite fans who played the original game to indulge in your nostalgia, as well as enjoy the new elements, such as the interlude episodes that will let you see the story in a new light. There are also some nice little easter eggs hidden in towns across the world which we would love to see long-term Mana series veterans pick up on!

TITLE

This game was made with the incredible support of all the fans of the series. Everyone on the development team took care to leave in what made the original great, while also striving to make this a game that puts the Mana series on the map for many generations of gamers. As time continues to pass, we would love to see a new generation of players continue to remember Secret of Mana as one of their great gaming experiences.

Because a Hero’s duty is never over, it is my absolute pleasure to share the awesome news with you that I Am The Hero is coming to dish out justice on the PlayStation 4.

I Am The Hero is a game developed by Crazyant Games, a Chinese indie studio. The game itself is a pixel art beat ’em up, you will play as a “Hero” with a glorious but mysterious past…

I am The Hero

More than that though, I Am The Hero has been developed with a single thought in mind: to be a love letter to retro gaming. Visually the game is ripped right out of the studio’s childhood gaming memories, a 2D pixel art look that’s combined with a robust, fun combat system (with a dollop of humour tossed into the mix as well).  If you consider yourself a lover of modern re-interpretations of gaming classics, then I Am The Hero is the game for you.

I am The Hero

The game can be played in co-op, but there’s also an online mode that lets you play with your friends in some specially designed challenges!

Like with the other games we have been involved in and had the privilege to release on PlayStation platforms over the last few years (One More Dungeon, Plantera, Squareboy vs Bullies, Twin Robots, Blasting Agent, etc) we know that I Am The Hero will be a game that our fans – and fans of side-scrolling beat ’em ups – will enjoy.

And we know some of our beloved fans will ask about the PS Vita and retail editions… Well, we’re investigating the possibility of a PS Vita version but we can’t share any news for you at the moment (but stay tuned to our social media channels!). It’s the same with possible retail editions: we’re speaking with some people about but nothing is yet confirmed.

We really hope you’ll check it out, as we’re really looking forward to hearing what you think of it. We feel it is a game that will appeal to not just our fans, but new fans as well.

Discover the reveal trailer we unveiled today below!

Farming Simulator 19 will feature, at launch, three distinct open-worlds in which to develop and expand your farm, in solo or with friends: two entirely new environments we will soon unveil, as well as an all-improved version of the South American environment which has been overhauled to take advantage of the new engine’s capabilities.

Farming Simulator 19 takes the biggest step forward yet for the franchise, and will bring great improvements to nearly every aspect of the game, not just greatly enhanced graphics.

Farming Simulator 19

Its content will be richer than ever: with the addition of new big brands, Farming Simulator 19’s garage will be the franchise’s most extensive vehicles roster ever. Farming Simulator 19 will also introduce new farming activities, new animals with horses, brand new mechanics as well as new crops, all of which we will be revealed in great detail over the coming months and future events.

The latest free update to The Evil Within 2 allows gamers to re-live the nightmare from a brand new perspective, with the addition of a first-person mode.

The Evil Within 2

Players will come face to face with unimaginable terrors through the eyes of Detective Sebastian Castellanos, a man who thought he’d lost everything, in a desperate race against time to save his daughter Lily. To do so, Sebastian is forced to work with MOBIUS, the mysterious organisation responsible for the destruction of his former life. Worse still, Sebastian will once again have to descend into a nightmarish world of MOBIUS’ design: the disturbing town of Union.

Union was intended to look like an idyllic small town, USA. But the road to hell is paved with Mobius’ intentions, and something horrible is happening in Union, causing it to tear itself apart. STEM worlds require a Core to exist, and with Lily missing inside of the STEM world, it’s beginning to deteriorate. As her mind falls apart, so does Union.
―Shinji Mikami

Union is a warped and twisted place, with horrifying creatures roaming the streets, and sadistic villains looking to bend the world to their murderous will. Fresh horrors lurk behind every corner, and in a world where nothing is quite what it seems, players must prepare wisely, or suffer the grisly consequences.

The Evil Within 2

Playing in first-person mode adds a new dimension of fear to The Evil Within 2; with a more restricted field of view, the dread that enemies may be close but out-of-sight is heightened. Seeing the world through Sebastian’s eyes means players should be prepared to get up close and personal in combat, and it’s almost impossible to keep your heart from thumping when trying to stealth your way past a mob of bloodthirsty creatures without alerting them. Wait… did that one just see you?

If you haven’t had a chance to check out The Evil Within 2 and want to try it out before you buy it, you can download the Free Trail and play through the opening chapters of the game. All save data will carry over if you choose to upgrade to the full game. The new first-person mode is also available to try out in the Free Trial.

Whether you’re about to replay the game for kicks, attempting the brutal “Classic mode” or playing the game for the first time, exploring Union in first-person makes the world feel even bigger, even more terrifying, and offers players a closer look than ever before at the artfully designed environments and monsters of The Evil Within 2.

The Evil Within 2

The update for The Evil Within 2 is available to download, for free, now.

Romans, Vikings, Samurai, Aztecs, Spartans and many more will answer the call to arms to battle it out in a series of hazard-filled arenas as World of Warriors makes its PS4 debut on 21st March.

When the game was first announced for PS4, you got a glimpse at its central story, as the greatest warriors in history are summoned to a land beyond their own to take on all challengers in a variety of multiplayer arenas. And while we touched upon how you (and up to three friends), need to pick your favourite warrior and toughen them up to survive the trials ahead, we’re now going to talk about exactly what those trials are!

You’ll not just have to be wary of your friend’s/opponent’s sword arm, but of your surroundings as well. Because in World of Warriors, every arena is a potential death trap brimming with hazards. Let’s take a look at just some of the locations and their deadly repertoire of warrior-killing surprises.

1. Coliseum

World of Warriors

Hack ‘n’ slash your enemies in the Coliseum! Impress the crowd with your combat skills, but watch out for the spinning fire totem or else you’ll get burned!

2. Heroic Hills

World of Warriors

Picturesque and perfect Heroic Hills may seem, but don’t let your guard down! This is no picnic in the park, as those spinning whirlpool tornadoes can be fierce!

3. The Sea of Night

World of Warriors

The sea can be a cruel mistress, and so can this arena! Watch out for the titan who swings his anchor. You might be in international waters, but you’re on his turf now!

4. Midnight Forest

World of Warriors

Deep deep down in the dark dark woods, the Midnight Forest lays keep to an ancient tree who can aid warriors in their battles… but get on his wrong side and he’ll aid the enemy!

5. White Wastes

World of Warriors

At the edge of the world, and frozen in ice lay a host of woolly mammoths itching to escape! But only the most cunning warrior will figure out the trick to mastering the mammoths and earning a mammoth help on the battlefield!

Whether you’re battling friends locally or tackling new warriors online, World of Warriors promises a multiplayer rumble the likes of which history has never seen. And starting from today those who pre-order will receive an exclusive World of Warriors static theme for the PS4, to keep their battle spirits high!

We’ll see you in the Wildlands on 21st March.

LET BATTLE COMMENCE!

Get your Virtual football boots ready, because we’re really excited to finally be able to announce the latest social VR title from Cherry Pop Games, VRFC (Virtual Reality Football Club), coming to PlayStation VR on 27th February.

Play for global glory or enjoy private matches

VRFC takes eight football-ready enthusiasts kicking, tackling and running into the world’s first FPF (first person football game). This first person soccer game, played in VR where you control the running, dribbling and kicking motions with the unique agile locomotion mechanic, gives you the ability to play a game of five-aside football in VR (with the goalies being controlled by AI).

VRFC

Play in competitive online eight-player matches with global leaderboards, or tackle your friends in a private match for a little friendly competition, and with fully customisable game settings you can tailor your agile VR experience to suit you.

VRFC is not just your typical football experience. Its energetic and fun, an innovative upper body workout burning calories as you play. Virtual reality is a great place to exercise as you’re transported to a world of fun and games, you can feel the burn but it doesn’t feel like a workout!

Get moving in VR: introducing Agile Locomotion

At Cherry Pop Games we invest a lot of time ‘playing’ in VR within our dedicated R’nD department (known as Cherry Labs). We delve deep into VR locomotion experimenting with a variety of wacky ways to just ‘get around’ in a virtual world. Running was a pretty simple and fun mechanic, but how could we take this one step further? We’re introducing Agile Locomotion – an innovative intended form of locomotion which allows you run, sprint and kick a ball in VR with no physical discomfort.

We live for social VR at CherryPop, but with this release we wanted to experiment even further with VR locomotion and tackle the impossible; strike up a game of five-aside multiplayer football in VR!

Agile Locomotion gave us the ability to do this. With the use of two Move controllers acting as your feet, natural arm motions provide the base running and kicking mechanic, while a series of basic button presses control the more precise movements. VRFC is easy to pick up but harder to master. To play well as with any sport, practice is key.

VRFC

Get training

There are a variety of offline training activities to help you up your game; learning the basic controls, to striking, passing and target practice. The training activities and online stats are hooked up to the global leaderboards. Want to hit those top spots? Practice and learn to play as a team.

We’re so excited for you to join our Virtual Reality Football Club, and we can’t wait to gain all your feedback and ideas for future updates, check out www.vrfcgame.com and join the official VRFC Club for all the latest news and events. And be sure to follow cherrypopgames on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to see all the fun and crazy VR antics that go on at Cherry Pop.

You can try fortune tellers, online quizzes or scan newspaper horoscopes, but in our opinion there’s only one true way to test whether your relationship is built to last: cooperative video games.

So with Valentine’s Day upon us, we thought it the perfect reason to offer up ten PlayStation 4 games that will really put your compatibility to the test – they’ll either expose the cracks in your communion or demonstrate what a rock-solid pairing you are. So take a look, and see which game you’ll want to get an extra controller for.

***Warning: the following may cause break-ups, or at the very least, heated arguments.***

1. Gang Beasts

You’ll need: Two controllers
Tests: Your trust issues

Boneloaf’s hilarious multiplayer game includes a brutal wave mode. Sure, you can stand back to back and battle off enemy hordes… but you could also resolve any niggling relationship frustrations by nudging your partner into the nearest furnace. Imagine a pillow fight, but with more spikey deathtraps.

2. Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

You’ll need: PS VR, two controllers
Tests: Communication skills

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

What better formula for a healthy romantic relationship than the title of this brilliant PS VR co-op puzzler? You’ll need to prove your communication skills by working together to defuse a bomb. The PS VR-wearer faces the multi-part explosive face on, diffusing the device through instructions being fed by the other player… who can only find the correct documents by descriptions given by the PS VR player. It’s pictionary with a deathly twist.

3. Don’t Starve Together

You’ll need: Two controllers
Tests: Viability to survive a nuclear fallout together

Don't Starve Together

Is your ideal romantic break a survival experience for two? Test your partner’s foraging skills from the safety of the couch first with this roguelike co-op adventure. Cooperate to gather resources and last as long as you can. Is survival easier together? You’ve double the hands, but also twice as many mouths to feed…

4. Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime

You’ll need: Two controllers
Tests: Coordination, who’ll call the shots abroad

Taking a road trip with a loved one: idyllic adventure or delegation disaster? Go starside and find out if you’ve the coordination and compatibility to jointly run a spaceship. You may find yourself being shot into space before the journey’s through.

5. Salt and Sanctuary

You’ll need: Two controllers
Tests: Cooperation

Put down the D&D board game roleplay for the evening and face death together in Souls-like 2D platformer Salt and Sanctuary. The local co-op mode Sellswords means you can spend the night questing – and dying – as a couple.

6. Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2

You’ll need: Two controllers
Tests: Home interior decisions

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2

Couple a romantic park stroll and a horror movie marathon for two with this ingenious mix of tower defence and FPS. Go split-screen to play co-op or, alternatively, settle an argument in the competitive mode.

7. SingStar Celebration

You’ll need: One controller + Smartphones
Tests: Whether karaoke is the right idea for your anniversary

Serenade each other with PlayLink’s SingStar. Sing your favourite love songs or perform in a romantic duo! See how long you can survive without critiquing your other half’s poor harmonising skills!

8. Overcooked

You’ll need: Two controllers
Tests: If you’ve got to take dinner prep in turns

Couples that cook together, stay together…said someone who obviously hadn’t played frantic and potentially volatile arcade cookery game Overcooked. Answer questions like: who’s the best cook? And who does the dishes? Who can work best under pressure?

9. Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2

You’ll need: Two controllers
Tests: If you can settle an argument civilly

Is your ideal date dinner and catching the latest Marvel movie at the cinema? Well, why not enjoy your shared love of superheroes at home (and take a break from cosplaying at conventions) with the latest Lego adventure. Plus you can settle those heated ‘which superhero would win’ arguments by making each other explode in a shower of bricks.

10. Nex Machina

You’ll need: Two controllers
Tests: If you’ve got each other’s backs

If your eyes first locked across the weight rack of your local gym, then continue the workout session on Nex Machina’s fast-paced battlefield. Can you work in perfect harmony and survive Housemarque’s hectic twin-stick shooter? Only action fans need apply.

Konrad the Kitten is a unique experience that brings a cute virtual cat to your PlayStation VR device. Originally, the very first prototype was created by one of the team as an anniversary present for their girlfriend. The concept worked that well, that FusionPlay decided to expand the idea into a full game.

As you would expect it from a pet raising simulation, you need to care about Konrad’s needs and desires, making sure it eats, drinks, sleeps and more. If you care well for it, it will stay healthy, become well educated and will love you. This helps you to unlock new areas, objects and mini-games. But there is one thing that really makes this game unique: Plushy mode.

Plushy mode

Konrad the Kitten

You can activate Plushy mode in the options menu. You can then transfer one of your plush toys into virtual reality by attaching the Move controller on its back. The plushy will then come to life as the cute little kitten in the virtual world allowing you to really touch, lift and cuddle the virtual pet. This creates an incredible level of immersion, making your virtual kitten feel like a real one.

Konrad the Kitten

When attaching the Move controller to a plush toy, assure that it’s fixed proper and cannot become loose. In the studio, we use rubber bands or scrunchies, wrapping them around the belly of the plushy, then slide the controller in between. Note: the Move Controller needs to look away from the plushy’s head. The strap of the controller can be used to additionally secure the controller!

Konrad the Kitten

Mini-games

Konrad regularly wants to play mini-games that require you to actively guide him. He catches mice, flies through an obstacle course of rings or throws dishes from the couch table. Scoring in these mini-games rewards you with coins that can be traded in for 50+ different accessories. Customise his look by dressing him with hats, glasses and necklaces or even change the colour and pattern of his fur. Just make him look like your own cat or the cat you always wanted to have.

Konrad the Kitten

Konrad the Kitten will launch globally on 23rd February for PlayStation VR. It’ll be available in English, Spanish, German, French and Russian languages!

Can you juggle? I can’t. Tried multiple times, but it never took. Something about introducing that third ball into the equation just made my brain lock. And I’m convinced that inability is cause for the bead of sweat breaking out across my brow so early into my Moss hands-on session.

Let me explain. With L2 I’m holding a triggered Ticker under my sway. This mechanical insectoid is a denizen of the mine I find myself in, just one of an endless spawning, skittering army that explode upon sensing an intruder. That intruder isn’t me, but my mouse companion Quill. She’s wandered into this puzzle room, full of fatal drops, hidden levers and multiple pathways, at my behest. It’s just one of many in this underground labyrinth that we’re exploring.

Her would-be attacker is grossly swollen, ready to pop. But won’t, unless I release my grip. It’s one of my powers as a Reader: a towering, benevolent in-world spirit awoken by Quill at the adventure’s start. I’m watching over her travels from on high, but can at any point lean in close to get a closer look at her surroundings… or just go nose to nose with my mousey friend.

Anyway, that brain teaser.

Moss

Reach out and hold Quill for a few seconds to heal her. Cool detail? The rapid thrum of her heartbeats that’ll radiate out through your Dualshock 4.

By angling the Dualshock 4 I can direct the Ticker towards ones of the room’s switches that, once activated – by loosening my grip and letting the Ticker’s nature take its course – will operate pulleys and ultimately a certain moving platform. (I’ve utilised the same trick to first expose the lever by blowing up a stone wall that hid it.)

Simultaneously with the left stick, I guide Quill the other way, towards that platform. I help her slash through some Tickers, dodge others then climb up and over ledges. At the same time I’m double-checking via my peripheral vision if triggering this lever, standing on that platform will get Quill across the abyss. I’ll admit: I’m struggling.

Yet a few minutes later as a surviving Quill reaches the room exit, I feel a small glow of satisfaction, a heightened anticipation for what puzzle comes next.

I also feel surprise. Surprise that this slick-looking PS VR puzzle platformer has such a strong undercurrent of complexity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Moss

You’ll have a birds-eye view of each area, but you can lean in to get a closer look, and a glowing outline of Quill will appear if she disappears behind walls.

 

It’s not the only surprise; the play session opens on a beach, takes Quill and I through those mines and spills us outside a distant fort. Throughout the colours are muted, and oppressive stillness permeates every location. There’s a disquieting darkness to this adventure to rescue Quill’s loved one; less fairytale Disney, more dark fantasy Jim Henson. And Moss is better for it.

You can see it wherever you look. As human-sized god bonded to this mouse you’re continually viewing this world from two perspectives. Quill’s own reshapes the usually insignificant; tree tops become looming dark clouds, a ditch becomes a hill to transverse. Ours sees the stories of the ruins around her.

Moss

The game’s name is a nod to the world rather than the individual journey. Quill’s just one story on a planet filled with them.

Early on Quill takes refuge under an oddly angled overhang. She can’t see the bigger picture: we can. The overhang is the wing of a gigantic, armoured figure half-buried in sand; a relic of a civilisation broken by the world an age ago.The game’s camera angle gives such visual hints a fresh perspective.

And that’s true of Moss as a whole thanks to its use of PS VR and its gameplay duality: a fresh perspective on the genre. I’m looking forward to see what’s next for our journey together, and to juggling multiple puzzles at once.

Since its first reveal at E3 2017, I’ve been completely enamoured with Moss. Polyarc’s debut PS VR adventure casts you as Quill, an adorable (and exquisitely animated) miniature heroine in a lush, foreboding fantasy world.

Moss for PS VR

Moss is the first title Polyarc is releasing as a studio, but the team’s individual members have a wealth of industry experience — around 12 years per member, on average — across a broad variety of disciplines. Despite their diverse backgrounds, a common thread running through the Polyarc roster is their focus on characters.

The studio makes it look almost effortless, but a lot of work has gone into making Quill a character players instinctively care about. Things like the sense of scale in each area, the believable way Quill reacts to situations, and how players can interact with her all play a part. At certain points in the game, Quill will communicate directly with the player using ASL!

 

So which came first, the gameplay concept, or its impossibly adorable protagonist Quill? “We didn’t want to make the player move around a lot, so we wanted to build a game where everything is happening in a reachable space,” said studio director Tam Armstrong.

“For the concept we had, that meant that the character needed to fit within arm’s length. A small character resulted from that, then it was a question of ‘how do we theme that?’ That’s where Quill came from.”

“That physical interaction created this character who also gives you a strong emotional reaction,” adds art director Chris Alderson.

 


Moss: Quill

The positive public reception to Quill herself after her E3 debut has made Polyarc take a second look at where they’ve been focusing their development efforts: “We had theories about VR game design from a mechanical perspective,” Tam explains, “but once we started making the game and this small character we surprised ourselves with how strongly we felt about her.

“Having that reinforced by the response from our audience just affirmed it, and development shifted to focus on her and the things she does. We have things in the game now that we weren’t planning to do, but that we felt needed to happen after watching people interact with her at E3.”

One example of this is being able to wave at Quill (by physically waving your controller in the air) and having her wave back. A tiny touch that some might not even think to try, but one that adds a real sense of believability — that feeling of immersion creators have been trying to perfect since VR first hit the scene.

 


One of the first things players tend to point out after playing Moss is how excellently animated Quill is. Watching her struggle to clamber over obstacles, or timidly unsheathe her sword in the face of looming danger, or even just look toward you with a confident nod is enough to make me want to protect this adorable little hero with every resource available to me. The work of Polyarc’s lead animator, Rich Lico, has a lot to do with the bond players feel with Moss’s petite protagonist:

“I wanted to have her communicate with the player in more authentic ways, like how your friend might communicate with you,” Lico explains. “That led to things like using sign language, and having her represent how the player might be feeling — if the player is upset at something, she might kick that thing the player is upset about. You project who you are onto the character, but she also defines herself separately, and it helps build that realism.”

Moss for PS VR

The response to Polyarc’s work so far, and in some cases Lico’s work specifically, has been overwhelmingly positive. The team wisely strives to channel that energy back into the game.

“When I come into work I’m not thinking about what people’s reactions are going to be, so when I see them I’m just blown away,” Lico says. “Especially with the sign language community, when we put out that tweet and it got such an emotional reaction, it really touched me and motivated me to want to come in and do better.

“I’m just super thankful that I’m able to do this for a living,” he adds, “and that people appreciate what we do.”

It’s clear from playing Moss and speaking with its creators that this is going to be a special kind of adventure, and the team at Polyarc is equal parts anxious and excited to finally send Quill out into the world. But Stephen Hodde, audio lead on Moss, feels that the project is already a success.

“I never felt like I was taking a big risk, honestly,” Hodde admits, to the surprise of everyone else in the room. “The risk is going to a place that doesn’t have heart. We’ve already succeeded, in a way, because we’re making something that is heartfelt.”
