It’s like watching a living diorama!” – Doucet “Gadgets are always considered with several use cases.” – Doucet “Enemies are created with a real product design approach. We treat them as real toys to reinforce their tangible nature.” – Doucet “Everything in Astro Bot is an excuse for characterization. Even scoreboards as imagined as living robots.” – Doucet More from this series: ‘Lone Echo’ Behind-the-Scenes – Insights & Artwork from Ready At Dawn ‘ARKTIKA.1’ Behind-the-scenes – Insights & Artwork from 4A Games ‘Robo Recall’ Behind-the-scenes – Insights & Artwork from Epic Games RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR News ‘Astro Bot’ Wins The Game Awards’ Best VR/AR Game of 2018 News ‘Astro Bot’ Ranked 5th Best PS4 Game of 2018, #1 PSVR Game of All Time News Bits ‘Astro Bot Rescue Mission’ to Get Free Demo Next Week on PSVR News New Video Reveals More Giant Bosses of ‘Astro Bot Rescue Mission‘ News Sony’s First-party Platformer ‘Astro Bot: Rescue Mission’ Heading to PSVR in October Moogle_kupo Astro Bot is a master class in VR platform design. It’s pure fun and a joy to play. Even after obtaining the platinum trophy, I still revisit my favorite levels. If you are a fan of platformers, this is a must play must own game! jj platinum and returning says a lot! Elvick Such a fantastic game. I really hope we get to see more. I’ve been in love with these bots since PlayRoom. The ninja bots DLC <3 The potential for 3D Platformers is so great in VR, and I hope we see more of it. I think Ape Escape and Crash Bandicoot would fit beautifully in VR. And at least with Ape Escape, that's a Sony (and Japan Studio) game. Make it happen. I can only imagine the fiendish spots that those Apes would be hiding in all around you in a VR title with proper gameplay and how well moving a lot of the gadgets to the controller would work as well. I need it. D:< flannel sykes My favourite game of the year and close to being my favourite game of this current generation Darshan Though it seems impossible but it will be great gift to whole world VR players if Sony Eventually release this games on all VR platforms in world… Just a thought. Sony anyway earn out of its sale. TonyVT SkarredGhost Awesome article, with lots of awesome artworks Fourfoldroot Please, please, please a sequel, or at least DLC, for this most wonderful of games. oompah PS exclusive?? Luke MacDonald It’s made by whatever the PlayStation branch of Sony calls themselves now, so probably. Jeremiah Tothenations I only got to play the original demo, needless to say it was something special, I’m not surprised they went on to make a full game and that it was great, the demo was everything Luckey’s tale should’ve been.
