Doki-Doki Universe Bumbles an Iconic Bass Line This Month

Posted by Sammy Barker

Totally jammin'

ToeJam & Earl creator Greg Johnson’s bizarre intergalactic experiment Doki-Doki Universe is set to tie up its Hi-Tops and speed onto the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita this month. The title – which appears to be dated for North America only at the moment – will jam with your consoles on 10th December, and will be fully cross-buy compatible, meaning that you’ll only need to pay once to play it on all three of the abovementioned systems.

The wacky indie exclusive puts you inside the iron boots of a cleverly dubbed robot named QT3, whose model is about to be discontinued. However, the cyborg is offered reprieve if he can prove to an alien named Jeff that he has some humanity hidden inside his hard metallic shell. As a consequence, the title sees you exploring various planets, interacting with each world’s inhabitants, and taking, er, personality tests. We’re not making any of this up.

In addition to the core adventure, the package will come with a messaging application that will allow you to send animated ditties to your friends on Facebook. You’ll also be able to build your own planet which your buddies will be able to visit. A free version of the game will be made available at launch that will allow you to sample the messaging system, but you’ll need to stump up $14.99 to unlock the full adventure. Colour us completely and utterly intrigued.

2 things - one, I have absolutely no idea what this game is trying to be. like what the play style is. is it like an exploring platformer?

second, "A free version of the game will be made available at launch that will allow you to sample the messaging system"
does that mean the free to play version only has messaging and not any actual gameplay?

@ztpayne7 To be honest, I'm not even sure what the game is either. The free version will have some "personality tests" for you to try.

Ah, I was under the impression it was only free to play. I didn't realise there was a paid version as well. I think the trailers look great and I love the basic design, its so cute. Can't wait for the reviews to start coming in, I'm looking forward to finding out more about this one.

I've played demo version on the GamesCom and it was quite pretty. Hope, that game will last at least more than 5 hours. Give me Cross-Save for PS4 and Vita and take my money :P

@odd69 @get2sammyb Yes, cross-buy is awesome! Bought flOw on PS3 and was very happy to get the shinier 1080p version for free when it released. Even the expansion pack with more creatures to play was free since I already bought it. Sweet! This is one of the cases where a fully digital game release has actual benefits.
