Trippy VR Adventure Paper Beast Gets A March Release Date

Trippy VR Adventure Paper Beast Gets A March Release Date

As one of the most interesting-looking surprises of the PlayStation’s final State of Play presentation for last year, I’ve had my eye on Paper Beast ever since. From the creative brain of Eric Chahi, the designer behind classics like Another World and one of the most notable experimental games of last generation, From Dust, this new PlayStation VR exclusive takes cues from the latter in presenting players with a reactive, physics-based world full of puzzles to solve and mystery to uncover. It’s all about interacting with the environment, the papercraft-like animals and learning about the ecosystem that reacts naturally to the player. It looks wild.

And the best part? It’s coming out in just two weeks! Alongside a brand new trailer, developer Pixel Reef has announced that Paper Beast will launch for PSVR on March 24, 2020. Check out that trailer right here:

In other news that really gets my blood pumping, the Paper Beast soundtrack will also be available in a double LP vinyl pressing from G4F Records as well as a digital download on Bandcamp. Love that for us.

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
