Sometimes a game comes along that follows every tired convention it is possible to imagine, but implements them so well that it manages to create an impression. The first crack at a virtual reality experience from Fe programmer Zoink Games, ghost Giant, ticks many of the cliche boxes established mystery VR games and by sandbox. But storytelling that was thoughtful and Ghost Giant characters drew me in all the same to get a brief, but rewarding virtual trip.
As the Ghost Giant, you act as a distressed anthropomorphic cat-child’s friend named Louis LaFleur, helping him on his experiences as he takes care of his family farm and learning about his life. Responsibilities far beyond his years have fallen so it is your task though he’s described as a young kid.
