Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son is an adventure game designed for virtual reality headgear. The project was conceived as a continuation of the iconic film titled Groundhog Day from 1993. The project was created by Tequila Works studio, known for Rime and Deadlight.
The action of the game takes place a few decades after the events shown in the movie original. In Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son , players assume the role of Phil Connors Junior, the son of the protagonist presented by the film. Like his father, he falls into a time loop that forces him to relive one day in the town of Punxsutawney. Players' task is, of course, to find a way to break the cycle.
Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son is an adventure game, in which players are tasked with exploring the world, talking to NPCs, and solving logical puzzles. The game is diversified by occasional arcade challenges.
The game is non-linear. Our decisions and actions ultimately bring the plot down to one of the several alternative paths. The entire experience is highly humorous, offering the same kind of black humour the audience loved in the movie original.
Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son only offers a single player mode.
The game was created exclusively for VR devices and requires them to work.
