Hey there! kokoromi here with an update on SuperHyperCube. In our last post, we shared with you a bit of the game’s history and our aesthetic inspirations for the game, from iconic film sequences to immersive art movements. We want you to feel like you are a part of a completely separate reality of warm, glowing light and abstract space. We’ve put tons of detail into the game’s retro-futuristic look and feel.
In this post we’d like to share a bit about the gameplay in SuperHyperCube, to give you an idea of how things work. We’ve spent the past year refining our mechanics, adding new elements and stripping away others to hone in on the right level of challenge and create a streamlined gameplay experience. Without giving away too many secrets, here is a bit of what you can expect when the game launches on October 13.
This is Marc from Drool. Back in 2009, Brian Gibson and I teamed up to create Thumper, our rhythm violence game. Today, we’re excited to finally announce Thumper is launching alongside PlayStation VR on October 13.
Thumper contains nine epic levels playable in both ultra-glossy 2D and fully immersive VR. Over the past few months, we’ve made many enhancements to take full advantage of PS VR. We’ve fine-tuned movement speed, the scale of the game world, and our visual effects to create an overwhelming sense of speed and monumental dread. It’s hard to describe if you’ve never been a space beetle on a screaming hell ride before. But no matter which way you play, we think you’ll feel the violence!
Earlier this week at E3 we announced that PlayStation VR will officially launch in North America on October 13. But we know many of you have been asking – ‘When can I try PlayStation VR out and see some of the great games to come?’ Well, tomorrow and Saturday (June 17 and 18), we’re going to offer PS VR demos at more than 30 Best Buy and GameStop locations. Starting on June 24, that number will expand to about 300 locations across the US and Canada.
