A virtual reality puzzle-mystery, Statik from Tarsier Studios (LittleBigPlanet PS Vita, Hunger) was announced today for PlayStation VR and it’s “coming soon.”
Tarsier’s Dave Mervik explains that Statik sees you joining Dr. Ingen and his assistant Edith as you try to unravel the complexities of the human mind. You awake each day with a unique, hand-mounted puzzle device to solve and “you must use your brain, eyes and ears to solve each mystery. Except… this is VR, so it’s hard to know whether you can trust any part of yourself. Our money’s on your brain!”
VR is full of potential for new approaches to gameplay and storytelling and, for our first go at it, we didn’t want to take the easy way out. We wanted to develop a game that felt both fun and substantial. Something that is more than just a novelty. It took a lot of very strange late-night discussions to come up with the concept for Statik, but we feel that we’ve found something that achieves our goals… and adds a few extra things that we’ll pretend we meant all along!
Beginning with E3, Statik will be shown off at “as many events as possible.”
