How We Soar, a new PlayStation VR game from former Free Radical and Crytek devs now at Penny Black Studios, is promising to deliver players the experience of Bastian flying on Falkor the Luckdragon in The Never Ending Story.
"How We Soar is a VR flight experience that gives you the chance to take up the reins of a beautiful, giant Phoenix and explore an enchanting world," explains Tom Turner, Managing Director at Penny Black Studios. "With your DualShock 4 controller becoming your reins, you will find yourself seated on the back of this mythical creature and in full control of its every swoop, glide and dive.
"Your Phoenix can gain great speed as you fly, giving a thrilling VR experience as you rush past the environment. Or you can just take it easy, even slowing down to a hover, just so you can take in the scenery. How you fly is entirely up to you!"
The game's visuals have a papercraft art style, with the levels around you forming as you explore. Players will travel back and forth between the realms of reality and fantasy with the goal of uncovering the memories of 'The Author' hidden within.
How We Soar will release later this year.
