Ghost Giant is an adventure game developed by the independent studio Zoink Games - a team whose portfolio includes the warmly welcomed Fe and Flipping Death. The game was developed with the PS4 platform and virtual reality goggles in mind.
In the course of Ghost Giant we play as the title giant spirit, which goes to Sancourt, a seaside town inhabited by anthropomorphic animals. The protagonist has to take care of Louis, a lonely boy living on the farm with his mother. Although initially the child is afraid of his new companion, over time he becomes more and more accustomed to him.
The story told in the game was written by Sara Bergmark Elfgren, whose work (including novels, comic books and scripts) has been translated into twenty-five languages.
In Ghost Giant we observe the action from FPP. Thanks to the giant size of the spirit we control, as well as the fact that nobody else but Louis can see it, we can look at the everyday life of Sancourt's inhabitants, open doors and move objects like furniture, vehicles or trees, and even rotate entire buildings during the game.
In this way we not only discover the secrets of the town (the area at our disposal includes a picturesque bay, a sunflower plantation belonging to the mother of our protege and a trash dump), but also help its inhabitants (and, of course, Louis) in solving their troubles.
Ghost Giant's three-dimensional visuals are pleasing to the eye thanks to cartoonish design and colorful palette.
