Wreak havoc to rid yourself of a spectral debt collector in Smash Hit Plunder, retail PSVR version coming January 15
Indie Games Publisher Perp Games has announced plans to bring developer Triangular Pixels’ cooperative VR adventure, Smash Hit Plunder, to retail outlets on January 15, 2019.
Set in the fictional Castle Carvasso, a medieval castle teeming with spirits, the game puts players in control of a young mage who, upon returning from magic school, discovers his family burned through their fortune and lost their home to the spiritual debt collector Mordred.
The goal of the game is to scour the castle for hidden treasure so that you can pay back the debt and reclaim your home from its unwelcome new tenant. To find the treasure, you’ll use your Mage’s special wand magic to wreak havoc and uncover hidden loot – all while avoiding your spectral ancestors who don’t take too kindly to you making a mess of their former home.
Smash Hit Plunder features three unique game modes; Treasure Hunt, Scavenger Hunt, and Free Play. The game also supports cooperative play by allowing another player to join the action using a TV screen and DualShock 4.
“The couch co-op experience is an important aspect of gaming for many people, and Smash Hit Plunder really succeeds in translating that for the VR medium,” says Mickey Torode, director of publishing at Perp Games. “The game can be a cathartic single-player campaign, but also offers a high-energy multiplayer arena to team up with or challenge friends.”
The retail version of Smash Hit Plunder will be priced at $29.99 when it arrives at retailers next Winter. You can pre-order your copy here.
