In an announcement today indie developer Drool has revealed that its PlayStation VR title Thumper has achieved Gold status, ready for its release on 13th October along with the headset.
Thumper is a music heavy, rhythm action videogame that was first revealed back in March this year. Then in June the studio confirmed the title would be available for PlayStation VR on day one as well as a collectors edition being available.
The videogame puts players in control of a very fast beetle that flies down a cosmic shoot bombarded with musical obstacles that can be overcome with rhythm-obeying commands. “Truly, it’s unlike anything you’ve seen, played or heard – a cocktail of kinetic action and aggressive acoustics. It’s the kind of game that inhales you, spits you out and leaves you yearning for more,” states the development team.
There’s just over a week to go until the launch of Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE) PlayStation VR head-mounted display (HMD), and all eyes will be on the company to see how much of a success the device will be in the early days. SIE has lined up a strong selection of titles for day one including RIGS: Mechanized Combat League, World War Toons, Rez Infinite, EVE: Valkyrie, Battlezone, 100ft Robot Golf, Here They Lie and many more.
