Virtro Entertainment – the female-led VR indie game studio out of Vancouver, Canada, today announced that Run Dorothy Run, an immersive rhythm runner game for virtual reality, will debut on PlayStation VR February 20th.
In Run Dorothy Run, Virtro Entertainment combines fantastical elements of the classic novel “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” with an addictive electro-swing soundtrack to create the stunning virtual reality world of Oz. The Wizard – affectionately referred to as “Ozzy” – has finally been dumped by the Wicked Witch of the West – “Effie” – and tricks Dorothy (the hero) into helping him get “his” prized possessions returned. Mayhem ensues, with Dorothy endlessly running through the Emerald Palace, the deserts of Oz and the Witch’s castle, as she gathers crystals, fights enemies, and dances through the jeers tossed her way, while figuring out who to trust, and who’s pulling her silver-shoed leg.
Run Dorothy Run hits the Yellow Brick Road on PlayStation VR February 20th.
