By Rebecca Smith, 3 months ago
It's been a little while since we last heard from Zoink Games' Ghost Giant, a PlayStation VR "adventure puzzle story" that will be arriving soon. You'll soon be able to get your hands on the game, and with the title due to arrive next month, pre-orders have become available for the physical edition of the game at retailers in America.

The game tells the story of Louis, a young cat who lives on his family's sunflower farm on the outskirts of the town of Sancourt. Aside from his mother, he has little contact with the rest of the town's residents. As the titular ghost giant, you're tasked with befriending the lonely cat and helping him out. The game will include the following features:

  • Dollhouse Town Tinkering – Using the PlayStation®Move Motion controllers, players can peek into, rotate and open individual houses to reveal the stories going on inside as the occupants go about their daily lives;
  • Vibrant Sancourt Setting – Players will explore the harbor, nooks and crannies of the town, Louis' sunflower farm and the local junkyard to solve puzzles. In addition, players can interact with items throughout the world, pulling plants, lifting vehicles, and fully immerse themselves in the tactile experience;
  • Heartfelt, Compelling Story – The sandbox experience is enriched by a sincere story created in collaboration with Swedish writer Sara B Elfgren, well-known for her Engelsfors Trilogy, which has been translated into 25 different languages and even adapted into film;
  • Neighborhood Watch – While Louis is the only character that can see the player, the Ghost Giant can also interact with other residents, leaning in to listen to the locals’ conversations, plucking hats off a passerby’s head, or interacting with the nearby environment to generate a response.
Unlike Louis, who is feeling a bit antisocial, the Ghost Giant loves to meet new people, even if they can't see him. As well as plenty of town residents to meet, Sancourt will have lots of things to discover. You'll be able to look through windows, open doors, and interact with the residents in a variety of ways. In the latest video for the title, players can get a brief glimpse of the town of Sancourt in a full 360o view:


Ghost Giant will arrive on May 7th physically. Pre-orders are available now from Best Buy and will soon be available from Amazon, GameStop, and Target. The game will be priced at US$29.99 or regional equivalent. The digital version arrives tomorrow, April 17th.
