Winds & Leaves is a calming new game from the developers of Prison Boss VR set to release this Spring exclusively for PSVR that lets you embark on a mystical adventure to replenish a barren land.
Winds & Leaves – New PSVR Exclusive
In Winds & Leaves you take on the all-important role of The Gardener, a being whose sole purpose is to re-grow vegetation in barren worlds. A bit like a healer of sorts. From the looks and sounds of it, themes will likely be similar to those in other esoteric and evocative indie games such as Rite, Flower, The Unfinished Swan, and others. That’s very good company to be in if they can pull it off.
A key component of Winds & Leaves will be awakening the latent energy within dilapidated landmarks around the world by using your stilts and gardening tools. The press release also mentions a dynamic soundtrack that adapts to your actions as well as procedural player-grown trees.
If the production values can live up to the potential we see in the trailer above, this could end up being a great late-generation snag for PSVR players.
“We are very excited about Winds and Leaves, as it is our largest project to date,” says Alexandre Pernot Lopes, Trebuchet Creative Director and co-founder, in a prepared statement. “We have welcomed a bunch of new faces in our team, and pushed our limits to create something unique and innovative. None of it would be possible without PlayStation’s incredible trust and support.”
Winds & Leaves does not have a firm release date just yet, but it is slated for PSVR this Spring so it’s not too far off. I’d wager it will come to other platforms later on and is simply debuting first on PSVR.
