Ghost Giant is a heartfelt puzzle story in VR about trying to keep life together with a little help from a very big friend.

Experience a new puzzle adventure from the studio behind Stick it to the Man, Fe, and Flipping Death. when Ghost Giant releases exclusively on PlayStation VR. It’s thrilling how many different ways there are to tell a story. Novels, movies and games all have their own approach – and with VR, even more unique possibilities have arisen.

In Ghost Giant, you meet young Louis. He lives in an out-of-the-way part of town, where he tends to the family sunflower farm together with his mother. Life isn’t always that easy though, and Louis is incredibly lonely. That is, until you enter his life.

As the player you take on the role of the Ghost Giant. And a giant you are indeed! Use your see-through hands to lift furniture, vehicles and trees. You can even rotate and open entire buildings to reveal the stories going on inside. The picturesque town of Sancourt becomes your own little dollhouse sandbox.

Being a giant is a big advantage when building your friendship with Louis. Along your journey, you help him with all manner of challenges that, at first glance, seem impossible to pull off. While they often involve heavy lifting, your most important role is less physical. It’s that of being a supporting friend for a child in need of some guidance.

Zoink Games and Perp Games are thrilled to announce that Ghost Giant will have a simultaneous physical and digital launch, this spring. Releasing a physical release at the same time as digital offers everyone the opportunity to explore the world of Sancourt, however they choose to play their games, from day one. Perp are honored to work on such an exciting project and cannot wait to bring it to market.

Of this very special announcement, Olov Redmalm, Art and Creative Director at Zoink Games says “Warmly welcome to Sancourt! I'm absolutely thrilled that we're getting a physical release of Ghost Giant by Perp Games. With their line of great VR game releases, we feel right at home. The team at Zoink Games hopes that through Ghost Giant you will experience something quite unique in both VR and storytelling! We're very proud of the game and it handles a topic we're all really passionate about. So buckle up, ready your handkerchiefs (just in case things get emotional) and prepare to become the Ghost Giant."

Rob Edwards, MD of Perp Games, is delighted to work on Ghost Giant and talks about the incredible slate of games Perp have coming up. “Ghost Giant is what VR is all about. A warm, heartwrenching story that fully immerses you into the world. We are so excited to be working with Zoink Games on one of the most anticipated VR games of 2019.”

Ghost Giant has been written in collaboration with Swedish writer, Sara Bergmark Elfgren, who’s work has been translated into 25 different languages, and is perhaps best known for her Engelsfors Trilogy. This gives players a whole new perspective on VR by pushing the boundaries of physical interaction with emotionally compelling storytelling.

Ghost Giant will arrive exclusively on PlayStation VR in Spring 2019 and will receive a boxed release in EU territories. A North American date will follow.
