Canadian studio Virtro Entertainment has offered a brief first look at its upcoming PlayStation VR title, Run Dorothy Run, which is expected to release this fall. In a press release, Virtro described the title as an endless runner and rhythm VR game, with a “cheeky take” on classic novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
Here’s an official description:
Run, jive, and bop your way through the world of Oz to an electro-swing soundtrack while the story unfolds. Explore fantastical lands in your journey through the Emerald City, the Scorched Plains, the Wicked Witch’s castle, and more. Clash with enemies, collect magic crystals, and activate power-ups, all to an irresistible dance beat. Unravel the curious alliance Dorothy makes with the Wizard of Oz to settle a score with the maybe-not-so-Wicked Witch. But don’t take yourself too seriously—navigate the crazy plot twists with your tongue firmly in your cheek.
Run Dorothy Run is a physically engaging, hyper-energetic, action-packed adventure. It is Virtro’s first title, and is designed specifically for virtual reality.
Virtro’s cofounder and CEO, Jordan Brighton, said in a statement that the studio brought in hundreds of play-testers to help turn the game into a “rich story and immersive experience.”
