Secret Sorcery, a studio founded by co-founders of Evolution Studios and Rage Software, has announced Tethered, a strategy game that “physically and emotionally tethers you” to a world that needs its balance restored, coming to PlayStation VR as a launch title in October.
Here’s an overview, via the game’s official website:
With the break of dawn, you awaken to find your Heavenly Archipelago ransacked by a plague of nocturnal creatures.
As a Spirit Guardian, you must return balance to your islands by seeking out precious Spirit Energy – an ancient life-force that will eradicate this blight for good.
Using daylight as your shield and wielding awesome elemental influence, nurture your flock – The Peeps – and build up their settlement for the night ahead.
And when darkness envelopes your kingdom, ensure their survival against waves of ravenous scavengers hell-bent on consuming all that lies in their path.
Only the first rays of daylight will banish these dark-loving denizens back to the Island’s underbelly – offering new hope and a chance to lick your wounds, rebuild and resume your quest for restoration.
Without your guidance your Peeps will surely perish and without them you cannot hope to rid your lands of evil.
Your fates are… Tethered.
