Live-action thriller Erica rolling out on PS4 today

I don't blame you if you forgot all about Erica. We first heard about the live-action thriller in 2017, during Sony's Paris Games Week proceedings, and the project hasn't had much to show in the time since. The PS4 exclusive is finally back – not just with another trailer, but the release itself. It's out today!

What's the deal with the fingerprints? "Enjoy pioneering live-action technology, with your smartphone as the controller which lets you interact with Erica's world. Perform actions such as delicately wiping a tear from her cheek or flipping through the pages of a book as you dig deeper into Erica's world." The game is a PlayLink joint through and through, meaning it's meant to be a social experience.

"Our big thing was we wanted to make this as interactive as other games, where you're touching the world in a very tactile way, so we had to build this technology from the ground up," Flavourworks director Jack Attridge said on-stage during Gamescom: Opening Night Live.

One of the big selling points is choice-driven variation, with Attridge promising "ambitious branching."

For ten bucks, I think I could be into this.
