A couple of weeks ago gmw3 reported on British developer Coatsink having several virtual reality (VR) projects in the works which included a PlayStation VR2 launch title. Also mentioned was Shadow Point, a story-driven puzzle title that was originally an Oculus Quest launch game. Today, Coatsink has confirmed that Shadow Point is coming to PlayStation VR later this month.
Shadow Point gained a lot of notoriety early on all thanks to the participation of Sir Patrick Stewart, who narrates throughout reading the journal of Edgar Mansfield. A theme Coatsink has continued through most of its VR videogames harking back to the early days of Esper which featured the vocal talents of Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead). Most recently the studio is known for Jurassic World Aftermath.
The PlayStation VR launch will feature all 80+ mind-bending puzzles that require gravity manipulation, playing with your own shadow, peer into alternate realities and more. As the title suggests, playing and manipulating light to create shadows is Shadow Point’s core mechanic, finding the right angles and depth to complete the puzzles.
To enable as much freedom as possible Coatsink has ensured Shadow Point is compatible with the PlayStation Move controllers as well as being suitable for seated or standing gameplay.
Reviewing the Meta Quest version of Shadow Point gmw3 found the videogame to be: “a suitably well-accomplished puzzle experience…there’s enough here to provide a good few hours of entertainment without breaking a sweat”
Coatsink will release Shadow Point for PlayStation VR on 22nd March 2022 retailing for $19.99 USD, £14.99 GBP, €19.99 EUR. Check out the new trailer below and for further updates keep reading gmw3.
