VR-exclusive game by From: https://www.playstation.com/en-us/games/deracine-ps4/

Sony wrote:The VR debut from director Hidetaka Miyazaki and FromSoftware

Déraciné is an upcoming story adventure game from Sony Interactive Entertainment, SIE Japan Studio, FromSoftware and Hidetaka Miyazaki, known for their collaboration on Bloodborne. Taking the role as an unseen faerie in a secluded boarding school, the player moves around in frozen time, collecting various bits of information that serve to unfold an overarching mystery. The story is a new take on classic adventure games and utilizes PS VR's technology to take gamers on an entirely unique and personal experience.


And, as always, there's absolutely no reason why this should be in VR and not say Blops4. More on that here:

- The world is From Software through and through. Not the gothic horror world, but rather the tranquil and light Hunter’s Dream.

- The graphics are beautiful. The menus are, ahem, From Softwaresque.

- The world is as cryptic as ever. You are thrown into this school of which you know nothing. People talk about weird things.

- You move in increments between hotspots with a button press, and turn in 45 degree increments. Kinda like Batman VR I think.

- Similarly to Dear Esther and EGTTR, you stop to listen snippets of people talking from a world outside your timeline.

- The snippets give you clues on what items to get and where, and how to use them.

That’s it for tonight as the time is nearing 2AM in the UK. I can see this being a lovely world to immerse myself in. I have never loved the hotspot/turn button mechanic, but hopefully I’ll get used to it.

Looking forward to exploring more, and other gaffer impressions.
