We've been quietly looking forward to Wired Productions' intriguing puzzle game, Tin Hearts. As you can see in the above video, it operates similarly to Lemmings, in which you guide a marching line of tin soldiers through 3D levels as they scout around the house. Some were curious whether the game would be playable in PSVR2, as it was already known to support the original PSVR. While the initial response was noncommittal, we now have a more satisfactory answer.
It's now been confirmed that Tin Hearts will indeed be coming to PSVR2 in the future. The flatscreen version on PS5 and PS4 is scheduled for release on 20th April, while the PSVR2 version will follow in the summer. There's no firm release date for the VR version.
"Designed from the ground up for VR platforms as well as PC and consoles, players can fully immerse themselves in the beautiful world of Tin Hearts," reads the press release. "Control, touch and feel the game’s mechanics, or physically move throughout the environments of the alternate-timeline Victorian universe full of nostalgic warmth and charm."
So, there you have it. We'll be able to play in either TV mode or VR mode, with the latter coming later in the year. Are you excited to play Tin Hearts in virtual reality? March into the comments section below.
Great. Everything is better in VR.
PSVR2 is simply incredible, the real 'next gen' has started. I can't stop playing No Man's Sky.
Will this game be better than Humanity? I don't need 2 Lemmings games.
@riceNpea Lies! 🤣 How many Lemmings-like games have you played in the last decade? The timing is certainly funny, but I can imagine this playing quite differently from Humanity, so there surely is space for both!
Nice especially as I liked the look of the flat version.
You have to wonder what VR does to day one sales as I'm delaying purchase of Gt7, Re8, re4 and now Tin hearts until I get a headset. This also applies to some "mmm I can see Vr happening" titles like Atomic hearts for example (and gt7,re8 in the past as those were obvious Vr titles).
But I guess Vr is so niche at the moment that it probably doesn't factor into the sales figures.
These kind of games look stunning in VR. I will definitely check this one out.
@CaptD why would anyone wait to buy a game they want just because they don't own PSVR2 yet? If they only wanted to play it in VR then they were never going to buy it for 2D gaming anyway, so there is no lost day 1 sale.
If anything VR would increase sales as people buying it for VR but not 2D gaming adds to the overall sales.
I will definitely be checking this out on PSVR2. The trailer is full of charm and character…I loved Lemmings back in the day so to play something similar in VR will be a thrill
@riceNpea Well I waited for re8 and I love the resident evil series but after playing re7 (first playthrough) I just knew I had to wait.
Gt7 is something I would play in Vr but I'm a bit meh about it flat but tbh that goes for all racing games flat after playing Vr wipeout and dirt rally. (Sony give us Motorstorm trilogy vr).
So yeah I am definitely someone who waits even if they would play the game flat but them again I am odd so perhaps it is a rarity.
Looks fun, will keep an eye on this one.
This always piqued my interest. Now with VR it's a must-buy.
@riceNpea Yeah, that's unfortunate that it's been like 20 years since a new Lemmings type puzzler and now two drop together.
