Story-driven PS VR adventure Ghost Giant announced with beautiful trailer

Befriend a lonely farmer & explore the picturesque town of Sancourt in the new game from Fe developer Zoink

It’s thrilling how many different ways there are to tell a story. Novels, movies and games all have their own approach – and with VR, even more unique possibilities have arisen. That’s something we want to explore with Ghost Giant, Zoink’s brand new title that we’re very proud to announce today.

In Ghost Giant, you meet young Louis. He lives in an out-of-the-way part of town, where he tends to the family sunflower farm together with his mother. Life isn’t always that easy though, and Louis is incredibly lonely. That is, until you enter his life.

TITLE

As the player you take on the role of the Ghost Giant. And a giant you are indeed! Use your see-through hands to lift furniture, vehicles and trees. You can even rotate and open entire buildings to reveal the stories going on inside. The picturesque town of Sancourt becomes your own little dollhouse sandbox.

TITLETITLE

 

Being a giant is a big advantage when building your friendship with Louis. Along your journey, you help him with all manner of challenges that, at first glance, seem impossible to pull off. While they often involve heavy lifting, your most important role is less physical. It’s that of being a supporting friend for a child in need of some guidance.

TITLE

For Ghost Giant, Zoink has teamed up with renowned writer Sara Bergmark Elfgren, whose work ranges from novels to graphic novels to screenplays, and has been translated to 25 languages. We’re very excited about what we’ve been able to achieve together, with our quite differing backgrounds in storytelling coming together in a new media. We hope you’ll enjoy the end result and that you’ll feel like you’ve experienced something new and special!

That would be nice, but I’m hoping it’s going to be Alien Isolation in VR myself.

Very adorable art style and the town looks busy. The interaction with the world for the player looks great too. Will other characters see you though or is it just the main character?

Thanks, happy to read it! The Ghost Giant is visible to no one but Louis. It’s sort of like his secret super power.

Love this sort of VR game. Can see plenty of Moss which is brilliant. Also, it has the look of a Media molecule game which is obviously a good thing.

Happy to read it! The Ghost Giant team really digged Moss too. :)

Looks great, if this is animal crossing-ish and not a 1,5 hour interactive storybook it’s an instabuy for me. Might pick it up anyway, just hoping for more fleshed out games for VR.

We hope you won’t be disappointed!

This and Moss may just convince me to get a psvr
