“Golem” Releasing on Digital and Retail PSVR This November!
Highwire Games and Perp Games have revealed that Golem will be released in both physical and digital form on PSVR this November. Are you ready to roam around as a stone giant?
Golem will receive a physical release in European Territories starting November 8, 2019. North American territories are targeting a retail release on or as close to that date as possible. A digital version of the game will follow come November 12, 2019.
This indie title has been built by a team of world-class industry veterans. Featuring music from the award-winning composer Marty O’Donnell, creator of the soundtrack for Halo and Destiny, innovative game design by Jaime Griesemer, the Game Designer on Halo and Destiny, and developed by a team “instrumental in some of the best-loved games of all time,” Golem has been described to have “the world-class pedigree to be a flagship title for PlayStation VR.”
Here’s the official description:
In Golem you take on the role of Twine, an adventurous kid who has been left critically injured by a serious accident. While you can’t leave your bed, you develop an extraordinary ability to create and control large stone golems and see the world through their eyes.
You can use your golems to explore an enormous abandoned city, collecting treasure and artifacts, while unraveling a deeper mystery and discovering the connection between the city and your family. Designed from the ground up for VR, the game also has an innovative free movement control scheme and intense one-to-one melee combat that sees you feint, block, and counter-attack your enemies.
Jaime Griesemer, Creative Director at Highwire, shared, “It’s so gratifying to see our original vision for Golem come together into a full experience. We’ve really had to push ourselves and the technology, but I think the game is beautiful and I can’t wait for everyone to be able to play it. And we’re pretty old school, so it won’t feel ‘finished’ for us until we see it on store shelves.”
Rob Edwards, Managing Director of Perp Games, said, “Golem has been a long-time coming but the wait is almost over. It is our honor to be working with such an amazing team of world-class talent. We can’t wait to explore Golem’s secrets.”
As an added bonus for fans, the Physical Edition of Golem will also include a downloadable version of “Echoes of the First Dream” the musical prequel to the game.
Pre-orders are currently available through GameStop. Other major retailers will open them soon.
