After spending roughly 4 months as a Playstation VR exclusive, Secret Sorcery‘s “Tethered” has finally made its way over to the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and OSVR platform.
This is a strategy game where the player take charge as a Spirit Guardian, a role which tasked him to command the minions known as the “Peeps”, to do every bidding such as feeding, fighting, building or sacrificing themselves for the greater good. At nightfall, these Peeps has no much time to rest as well, as evil dwellers who are lurking in the dark, are waiting for opportunities to sneak in to destroy and steal the resources, crystals and even the Peeps.
Player can direct the route of these minions using the motion controller. Rather than moving your body around, you will use the motion controller to manipulate the game world, such as rotating and zooming in. The reliance on motion controller is due to it being a seated experience title for the Playstation VR in the beginning.
Tethered has got 13 unique islands waiting to be explored in this magical sky borne world. Tethered works with both motion controller and gamepad, and right now there’s a DLC for this title, which comes in the form of an original soundtrack of the game.
