Alan McDermott from developers Secret Sorcery has taken to the official PlayStation website this week to reveal more details about the new PlayStation VR game, Tethered.
Tethered takes place on a beautiful floating world and will be available to play using the Sony PlayStation virtual reality hardware later this month from October 25th, 2016 onwards.
McDermott explains a little more about what you can expect from the Tethered storyline and virtual reality experience.
Tethered is a simple, unique, and totally immersive strategy game in which you play the part of a Spirit Guardian as you strive to restore balance to your world.
Evil has consumed your world. The Spirit Guardians have been imprisoned inside the ancient, collapsed Totems; only you remain free. The once beautiful floating islands of your universe now drift unguarded — ravaged by creatures of the night. You must wield your elemental powers and gather enough Spirit Energy, a mysterious source of power that permeates everything, in order to release the entombed Guardians and restore balance to the land.
To accomplish this quest, you’ll need help from the island’s inhabitants: The Peeps. Devoted, but overwhelmed by the evil that surrounds them, give them purpose; give them hope. Without them you’ll surely fail in your task, and without you they will inevitably succumb to despair. Your fates are “Tethered.”
Tethered boasts 13 lovingly hand-painted sky islands for you to complete — each one hiding secrets, puzzles, and challenges. Gather enough Spirit Energy on each of the islands to fill the Totem and release the Spirit Guardian imprisoned within. Immerse yourself in the wonder and beauty of a magical universe, carefully crafted to allow you to escape reality.
