Hi. I’m Greg, the designer of Sony’s new game Doki-Doki Universe and I run a small game studio called HumaNature Studios. In years past, I created a game you may be familiar with, called ToeJam and Earl. Announced just last month, Doki-Doki Universe is a game about humanity and emotional expression. It’s sweet and quirky and hopefully a little thought provoking. If you’re interested in a change of pace, you may find it interesting. We hope so, anyway. To give you a better idea for how the game plays, we’ve put together this fun trailer for you:

Doki-Doki Universe is more than a game. It’s a cross-platform ecosystem built around a unique universe of personal discovery. And as you can see in the trailer, the universe you explore is vibrant, fun and playful. There are tons of different places to explore, characters to meet, objects to collect and conjure up, and there are even fun reflective quizzes to take. However, the most important thing you should take away is that Doki-Doki Universe is about creating an emotionally engaging experience that will help you learn about yourself.

We hope you enjoyed this sneak peek into Doki-Doki Universe!

It seems so @#3 +LordEleos, What my copy of Game Informer says, expressly this: “You won’t have pay to see if HumaNature’s unique project is for you: the game will be free when it launches later this year.”

They didn’t correctly state “won’t have to pay” but they do say “will be free when it launches…” so, kudos to you HumaNature. It does look good! I was happy reading about it in Game Informer and very pleased to see a post on the PS Blog about it.

Greg, just wanted to say you did a great job in that interview with Gamespot today– you really conveyed the charm of the game in a way that piqued my interest. Can’t wait to play it!

This looks fan-diddly-astic!

Will this come out before the PS4, on PS3/Vita and then come later to PS4 (since it wouldn’t be out)?

Or will it come out sometime after PS4?

This is actually the Vita game I’m looking forward to the most this year! Can’t wait :)

PS4 still has time to implement retrocompatibility with PS3 games, PS2 games and PSX digital games and decline Plus being mandatory to play online maintaining online playing free for everyone. If they don’t, I will give the thumbs down to PS4, use my PS Plus account to “buy” free PS4 games and only buy it after it has dropped it’s price dramatically or they add compatibility with PS3 in any way they want to. I encourage everyone that bought over 190 digital PS3 games supporting this company to do the same. RESPECT TO MY PS3 GAMES COLLECTION!

Not sure if it would be fun to “play” but it looks very nice!
