One of Sony’s more intriguing PS4 exclusives releases soon, and it’s bringing PSVR support with it.
Concrete Genie from PixelOpus is releasing on October 9th. The main bulk of the game is played on a flat screen, but it also comes with two free PSVR modes. Check out the trailer for the game below.
Concrete Genie is a game about artistry and bullying. You play as a teenager named Ash that suffers from bullying. Ash vents his frustrations with art, which one day leads him to a lighthouse in which he discovers a magical paintbrush. In the main game, you’ll use this to paint on walls and bring your creations to life. These paintings, called Genies, will assist you in getting around town, avoiding bullies and cleaning up your polluted surroundings.
PSVR owners will get an additional campaign to play through too. You wield PlayStation Move controllers, helping a Genie named Splotch on a new quest. Once you’ve finished that mode you’ll also unlock a free paint mode to use around the game world. Think of it like Tilt Brush with an adventure mode.
We went hands-on with the game’s PSVR support earlier in the year. We found the creative freedom to be pretty liberating, but it remains to be seen exactly how much VR content will be on offer.
Concrete Genie can be pre-ordered now from the PlayStation Store. A standard version of the game costs $29.99 while the Digital Deluxe Edition packs a soundtrack, art book, design pack and a PS4 theme. Looking forward to playing the game? Let us know in the comments below!
