Just for European stores to start with.
German indie developer Brainseed Factory launch virtual reality (VR) puzzle platformer Squishies for PlayStation VR a couple of months ago. Today, the team has announced a collaboration with Perp Games to bring the videogame to retail stores this Spring.
Squishies takes place in a joyful, vibrant world which Brainseed Factory has designed to be easily navigated using PlayStation Move controllers. The challenge is to help the squishie characters get home by manoeuvering them around a series of ever more complex and hazardous levels, pushing and pulling from one side of the maze to the other, all while earning medals, gathering crystals, climbing slopes, and avoiding pitfalls.
There are 100 levels across five worlds to complete in the main campaign mode, and when things get tough you can always use power-ups, alien technology and helpful creatures to get by. Once completed – or even before then – you can build your own levels using the same tools that Brainseed Factory used to build the videogame. Once completed the levels can then be shared with friends and the rest of the world using an online store.
Of the announcement, Bilal Chbib, Producer and Game Designer at Brainseed Factory said in a statement: “We have big plans for our little Squishies, and working with an experienced partner like Perp to bring the game to the beloved box is definitely a great step forward.”
Announcing the first Perp Games title in 2019, Rob Edwards, MD of Perp Games went on to add: “Squishies is a great puzzle game, that uses the Move controllers in a unique and intuitive way. We really love the level editor and think fans will have great fun creating new levels to share to the community.”
Squishies will get a physical release in Spring 2019 for PlayStation VR owners in EU territories, with a North American date to be announced. Of course, you can buy Squishies digitally now, via the US PlayStation Store for $24.99 USD, or the EU PlayStation Store has the title discounted 20 percent, dropping the price from £19.99 GBP to £15.99. VRFocus will continue its coverage of Squishies, reporting back with any further future updates.
