Paired with developer Mechabit, virtual and augmented reality studio Archiact announces the release of their VR game Pierhead Arcade on PlayStation VR.
Check out the launch trailer of Pierhead Arcade, featuring some gameplay footage:
“Pierhead Arcade is a casual arcade VR experience that uses physics-based gameplay to bring the nostalgic arcades of the past to vivid life. As the heir to a huge virtual arcade, players will test themselves against such familiar faire games as shuffleboard, whack-a-dino, and playful shooting galleries. Once they’ve collected enough tickets, they can head to the prize booth for a smorgasbord of nostalgic carnival props and prizes, each featuring its own fun interaction.
Leveraging the highly accurate tracking of PS VR, this title excels at simulating the authentic arcade experience with one-to-one movement, comfortable locomotion, and satisfying throw/toss actions. The mechanics of Pierhead Arcade are simple enough for players of nearly all ages to pick up and instantly enjoy, but its various games offer enough difficulty to challenge even the most savvy of arcade junkies. Only the best in the world will land their name on the global leaderboards!
- Test your gaming mettle against 15 faire games, including skee-ball, hoops, shuffleboard, bowling, shooting galleries, and the notorious claw machine.
- Teleport locomotion for a comfortable VR experience.
- One-to-one tracking and realistic physics allow for perfectly intuitive interaction, aiming, and throw mechanics.
