MCKINNEY, Texas, Aug. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Playful Corp. extends a warm welcome to PAX Prime attendees and invites you to visit us on the 6th floor (booth #6503), where you can play our virtual reality platformer Lucky's Tale on the Oculus Rift and our sandbox voxel adventure Creativerse. You can also meet the games' creators and pick up a free t-shirt and Steam code for Creativerse (a $19.99 value) while supplies last.
In early partnership with Oculus, Playful explored more than 30 different prototypes and experiences for virtual reality. The result of this pioneering work is Lucky's Tale, the world's first 3rd-person character action game designed exclusively for VR. The game features Lucky, an adorable, fun-loving fox who players guide through an amazing new world on the adventure of a lifetime. We are proud to announce that Lucky's Tale will be launching alongside the consumer version of the Rift in early 2016 and players will be able to experience a new level of the game at PAX Prime!
Press and consumers alike have responded with enthusiasm to Lucky's Tale at E3, GDC and GamesCom. Kotaku called it, "One of the coolest things I've seen in VR" and Destructoid said it was the "favorite Oculus Rift title I've ever played." Wired said, "The sense of presence is staggering. It's like you're actually in there." Game Informer added that Lucky's Tale "succeeds in demonstrating the viability of platformers in virtual reality."
As huge fans of the voxel building genre, Playful is on a mission to create the ultimate next-generation sandbox adventure game. Creativerse picks up where others in this genre left off, adding all new building tools for creative players, challenging combat for the adventurers, and bold new biomes for the explorers. Set in a beautiful world shrouded in mystery, Creativerse is packed full of adventure, secrets, danger and wonder.
The game features a completely seamless multiplayer experience (all your worlds hosted in the cloud), a massive variety of blocks, beautiful textures and amazing lighting, interesting cave systems with danger and wonder at every turn, teleportation, "blueprints" (kit-building mode), and much more. Prominent Youtubers have been raving about the game; Yogscast called it "so satisfying" and "really really fricking cool!" Currently in Early Access on Steam, Creativerse has a "Very Positive" 89% rating and is set to officially launch as a free-to-play title later this year.
