Poznań, Poland, April 18, 2019 – Gamedust Sp z.o.o. has revealed that Spuds Unearthed – its strategy, tower defense and shooter game – will be coming to PlayStation VR during Q3 2019.

Spuds Unearthed has already gained a cult following since it entered Steam Early Access for PC VR earlier this year. A mix of strategy, tower defense and shooting gallery within a fully interactive VR environment, the game puts you in control of an A.I. Hands system – the standard equipment used by a Spud's Baseship to conquer the galaxy and help the Spuds to continue their frantic fight.

Use strategic thinking and specialize your crew by assigning them different classes – create a frontline by dispatching vehicles and Goonbots, and produce bizarre Turrets with cranks, springs, and anything else you can find.

Gamedust has also launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to help them deliver the PSVR version of Spuds Unearthed, and add additional elements like a single-player story mode to help achieve its full vision for an already entertaining and fun VR experience.

The Indiegogo campaign can be found here:  

Piotr Jaworski, CEO, Gamedust, said:

“We believe that Spuds Unearthed provides a truly unique mix of VR-focused design, seamless user experience and a world full of wacky potatoes fighting for their own piece of land. We’re launching our Indiegogo campaign to help us bring the game to PSVR and help us reach our full vision for Spuds Unearthed, including a full single-player story campaign. We would love to hear feedback from our supporters on the final stage of the game’s development to create something capable of being sustained for a long time, for current and future players.”

About Gamedust

The Gamedust team began life as an experimental VR game development division at Polish software house Setapp. After initially developing games for the Gear VR mobile device, some of the team wanted more. Since then, our passion and craving for real, unique ‘Big VR’ game experiences with replayability and original design drove us to form Gamedust where, since 2017, we have brought three titles to market.
