Funktronic Labs, the studio behind funky real-time strategy game Cosmic Trip (2017), launched their latest VR project back in May that brought its so-called “creative gardening” app to PC VR headsets and Oculus Quest. Now PSVR users can get in on what we called in our review a “serene journey ripe with discovery.”
Update (December 10th, 2019): According to a PS blogpost, Fujii will be available today on the PlayStation Store for $15.
Before you jump in, make sure to take a look at our review to see why we gave it a resounding [8/10]. The original article announcing its release on PC VR and Quest follows below:
Original Article (May 5th, 2019): Called Fujii, the game aims to be a musical gardening adventure with a meditative vibe. As seen in the trailer (linked below), the player traverses a variety of vibrant biomes and follows a curious little fellow—all the while bringing the world to life with magic.
Even after the story is complete, the game is said to let players collect seeds and grow their musical gardens for as long as they like afterwards.
Here’s how Funktronic Labs describes Fujii:
A serene, mystical journey that traverses a series of otherworldly, organic landscapes, Fujii is a respite for weary travelers. The experience flows between outdoor exploration and creative gardening, merging aspects of adventure and cultivation into a refreshing, musically enveloping whole. After emerging from a mystical tree, players venture out to explore three unique and magical biomes. Watering, touching, and interacting in musical ways with plants and creatures throughout each biome restores its lifeforce, and expands the energetic rings of light that hover above. Each biome brings its own biodiversity and plant interactions, eventually leading players to the source of Fujii’s powerful energy well.
According to the game’s Steam page, Fujii is slated to release on June 27th, and will target HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Valve Index, and Windows VR headsets.
It’s uncertain when the game will come to Quest, however Oculus’ director of content ecosystem Chris Pruett says in a blog post that it should be arriving sometime after Quest’s May 21st launch.
