Unlock the Mysteries of Open Me on PS Vita Today

Dais Kawaguchi's Avatar + Posted by Dais Kawaguchi on Aug 13, 2013 // Associate Producer, SCEA

We hope you’re ready to think outside the box, ‘cause Open Me for PS Vita is available today on PlayStation Store!

We received an amazing response from everyone when we announced Open Me back in March, and we’ve been listening ever since.

First off, we created a trial version that you can download for free so you can get a feel for the game. Secondly, the trial version includes the multiplayer box mode, so grab your friends and take on the challenge together!

After you’ve taken Open Me for a test drive, purchase the full 12-pack game for $9.99, or one pack for $0.99. If 12 packs are too many, and one just isn’t enough, we created a 6-pack bundle (24 boxes) for $5.49. Enough packs, puzzles, and boxes for you?!

We didn’t think so either, so we partnered with three teams in Japan Studio to create three collaboration boxes! If you purchase one pack or more, you’ll also get the Tokyo Jungle box, Toro’s box, and the Gravity Rush box for free!

The Smart AR in Open Me works especially well when you use the Original AR Marker, so if you have a printer nearby, print out the Original AR Marker, place it in front of your PS Vita, and watch as the boxes appear magically on your screen. If you have a magazine or a newspaper, that works too.

You think you have what it takes to open all the boxes? Swing by PlayStation Store today to find out!

Might pick this up! :) Looks fun. Great usage of the Vita’s capabilities. I’ll start off with a 1-pack as it comes with 4…

How does upgrading work? Do I still have to pay 10$, even if I already bought one?

    Hi Zionine,
    Definitely, please give the game a try!

    You can continue to purchase each pack for $0.99, so you will not have to purchase the full game after.
    However, if you plan to download more later, you will be able to save few dollars if you purchase the full 12-pack game for $9.99.

I’ve been super excited for this game for a while! Glad to see it coming out! As much as I love knowing a release date ahead of time, I can’t help but get super hype for releases that launch immediately after their [re-]announcement.

Thanks again for the free trial version.

If I don’t have RL Vita friends, will I still be able to try the trial? It’s a bit vague.

This looks like a great use of the Vita’s AR capabilities, unlike the other games (Pulzar, Cliff Diving, etc) which were good tech demos but could have been 2D shareware games.

One thing that I hope improves is emulating the lighting in the environment. Right now, the renders are really bright like early 1990s game that have no lighting whatsoever. It would be really awesome if the AR libraries took the shading and color temperature of the lighting on the AR cards to roughly recreate the real-world lighting. Even if it only did it once during the recognition of the cards (rather than dynamic at 1fps), it would make a HUGE difference in the immersion and impressiveness.

Looking forward to a Vita-native EyePet, especially one that interacts with EyePet on PS4 :)

Are there any plans for Vita to support the Wonderbook accessory? Still waiting for word of PS4-native Wonderbook titles, hopefully with 3D support :)

Any word on Travel Bug? REALLY think that would be a great game / app on the Vita!

EXCELLENT GAME !!!

I thought i would grab Soul Sacrifice, but i think i will take Open Me…

Split pack or group pack or full game purchase, genius
no card AR, genius

I had a blast with trial pack…can’t wait for the rest of the game

Will you do DLC ?

+ divineLite on August 14th, 2013 at 5:57 am said:

the demo hook me up more than expected
so I pay the full 12+1 pack anyway

great game, i like this so much and i can show to my friend and let them open the box themselves

Will check this out. Thanks for the trial version! I hope I’ll find it worthy enough to purchase additional packs.

I downloaded the trial and, I gotta say, I liked what I played. I especially enjoy the challenge boxes that you are able to send to friends (are they shareable through “near” as well?). The Challenge Box feature reminds me of Treasure Park, and I could see myself making and breaking (open) boxes for months to come.
