Playful’s Star Child wants to take players to a new world.

The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2017 had a few surprise virtual reality (VR) announcements – like this brand new PlayStation VR exclusive coming from Lucky’s Tale developer, Playful. Not content with just announcing Lucky’s Tale would be getting a port to the Xbox One X, the developer also had to show gamers and press an all-new VR adventure.

Star Child is a neon-lit puzzle adventure with a strong sense of atmosphere. Taking place on an alien world with fantastical Martian creatures and creations, Star Child is a homage to platformers of the 90s while also being something entirely new.

PlayStation VR allows the player to lean into the world and look around the environments in detail – changing what would otherwise be a typical platform experience into something much more interactive and absorbing.

We played Star Child at E3 2017, and the interest in the title is well placed; “If the videogame caught your eye during SIE’s E3 2017 press conference, then you’re right to be intrigued. The Star Child demo was certainly a delightful experience, and over far too soon, so expect good things to come in the future.”

In the trailer below you can see a variety of multicoloured Martian creatures as well as a mechanical monster near the end.
