Pixel Reef has released a new teaser trailer for Paper Beast, its upcoming PlayStation VR title from Another World and From Dust creator Eric Chahi.
The short video shows some of the player interactions with the “vibrant wildlife that lives in a mysterious world born out of big data.”
Here is an overview of the game, via Pixel Reef:
Paper Beast lets intrepid player-explorers discover a blossoming virtual world where the environments and quirky animals have independently evolved from lost code and forgotten data. Following an unspoken narrative, players will interact with fascinating wildlife that adapts its behavior to the player’s actions.
“Imagine you are dropped in a virgin land, you walk and you don’t know where to go. Interactions lead you forward, and in the end, you have a natural view of everything,” said Eric Chahi, founder at Pixel Reef.
Paper Beast is a poetic fusion of VR technology and immersive gameplay experiences. A deep simulation system has been developed to bring the game universe to life. To emphasise the experience three talents are working full time on the spatial audio. The original soundtrack from British music artist Roly Porter highlights the immersion as you find your way in this colorful and poetic universe. And like the icing on the cake The Japanese All Girl Art Punk Rock Band TsuShiMaMire also took part in the adventure!
Paper Beast is due out for PlayStation VR in late 2019 and PlayStation 4 non-virtual reality in 2020. Members of the press will be able to go hands-on with the game behind closed doors at Gamescom 2019, which runs from August 20 to 24 in Cologne, Germany.
