A light kingdom-building strategy game
The PlayStation VR has another launch game lined up for its October debut. It’s a strategy title called Tethered in which you watch over little creatures (“Peeps”) who harvest resources, build up their settlement, and fend off nocturnal slug beasts with clubs.
“With a simple premise at its core – gather and prepare by day, survive by night – our goal is to strike balance between comfort, simplicity, beauty and challenge,” says creative director Alan McDermott. Tethered is being built for play sessions lasting “around 30 – 40 minutes of building up your village, gathering Spirit Energy, discovering ancient artefacts and learning new skills for your Peeps.” To be clear, it is a VR exclusive.
As a fan of A Kingdom for Keflings and Pikmin, I like the basic premise. This does look like what you’d expect from a typical launch game, but I’m happy folks are still making this type of strategy experience.
