Sony, in partnership with Immersive, MWM, and Tequila Works has launched a brand new title called “Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son.” But you might be wondering, “what is it?”
Well Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son is a virtual reality narrative adventure game that takes place in the world of the original film “Groundhog Day.” You will take on the role of Phil Connors Jr. who is the son of Bill Murray’s iconic character and has grown up in the shadow of his father.
Upon returning to his hometown of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania you become trapped in the same kind of time loop. Phil Jr. must live the same day over and over again until he truly learns some of life’s most important lessons.
The game consists of a variety of puzzles to navigate in order to solve the time loop, as well as an eclectic cast of characters (some old and some new). It tells a bold, original story with a dark sense of humor, exploring generational themes like work, success, identity, love, family, and parenthood.
- Start each new day with the sweet sounds of your alarm clock, because with the right tune there ain’t no hill or mountain we can’t climb!
- Reconnect with your family and friends!
- Play different puzzles as you navigate through a branching narrative and try to win over Punxsutawney’s citizens, because life isn’t always a perfect Hollywood movie. Am I right or am I right?
- Laugh, then cry, as you contemplate the cyclical nature of the human experience. And maybe, just maybe, escape your father’s shadow and finally learn to appreciate your family and friends. Bing!
Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son is now available ($29.99) for PSVR, Rift, and the Vive headsets.
