Award-winning Brighton-based developer FuturLab – and the recipient of a rare 10/10 here at Push Square – is readying its next game for release this summer: Tiny Trax for PlayStation VR. The virtual reality slot racer aims to build the dream Scalextric around your head, allowing you to immerse yourself in 12 different tracks built around three different themes.
With online multiplayer for up to four people, and a soundtrack composed by Killzone and Horizon: Zero Dawn’s own Joris de Man, the title will be playable as part of Sony’s booth at E3 2017 next month. “We’re delighted to announce Tiny Trax – it’s a game that will appeal to players of all ages, allowing them to dive straight in and recreate the thrill of slot racing in immersive virtual environments,” boss James Marsden said.
We reckon this one looks like a real winner: great concept, brilliant presentation, and – given the developer’s pedigree – uber-tight gameplay to boot. We can’t wait to try it out for ourselves later this year.
