Using daylight as your shield and wielding awesome elemental influence, nurture your flock – The Peeps – and build up their settlement for the night ahead.

Ahead of E3 2016 kicking off next week, Sony has announced a new PlayStation VR launch title called Tethered. The game is being developed by Secret Sorcery, a British studio founded last year from former developers of Sony Evolution Studios and Rage Software. As a PlayStation VR exclusive, Tethered is being produced by Secret Sorcery in partnership with Sony.

According to its developers, Tethered is something of a real-time strategy game with sandbox elements, calling to mind Lionhead’s ambitious Black & White, though on a smaller and more manageable scale.

“Designed and developed exclusively for VR, Tethered takes the best parts of a sand-box experience you might expect from a great strategy game and combines them with gentle puzzle mechanics that help pull you through the experience, all the while wrapping you up in a beautifully immersive universe. With a simple premise at its core – gather and prepare by day, survive by night – our goal is to strike balance between comfort, simplicity, beauty and challenge.”

Secret Sorcery has designed the game to played in sessions of 30 to 40 minutes, allowing for one full round of building up your village and defending it from attackers. Such a timespan is typical of what we’re coming to determine is a comfortable single session with any piece of VR hardware.

Sony will be showing more of Tethered at E3 2016 next week. The game is expected to be a launch title for the PlayStation VR hardware when it debuts in October later this year.
