Other Ocean Brings GIANT COP: Justice Above All to HTC Vive

Giant Cop on Sale May 30


ST JOHN’S, NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR CANADA - May 29, 2017- Other Ocean Interactive confirmed Giant Cop: Justice Above All​ will release on HTC Vive, May 30, 2017. The game will be available on the Steam store, and Humble Bundle for $24.99 USD.

Other Ocean ​is excited to extend Giant Cop ​to the Vive community” said Deirdre Ayre, Other Ocean’s Head of Operations. “We had a great initial release on Oculus, but also receive feedback that has helped with general adjustments while optimizing the game for Vive.​ We’re currently optimizing for PSVR as well and plan to release later in the summer,” added Ayre.

“A key feature in Giant Cop​ is the open world in which you can explore. Players can expect a 3-4 hour gameplay experience uncovering the crime syndicate that threatens Micro City,” said Ryan Hale, Studio Head for Other Ocean. “Our team deliberately built Micro City with sandbox gameplay in mind, if you want to just explore the world and find hidden interactive objects you can do that too - it’s limitless really.” said Hale.

Other Ocean is partnered with multiplatform entertainment company SKYBOUND ​Entertainment, founded by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and business partner David Alpert. The partnership has allowed The Walking Dead characters and Easter Eggs to be integrated into Giant Cop: Justice Above All exclusively to SKYBOUND​ Insiders. SKYBOUND​ Insiders is a free membership program which will also grant Giant Cop game owners updates, special offers and future merchandise features.

Giant Cop​ was developed at Other Ocean’s​ St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador studio with valued support from the Canada Media Fund.


About Giant Cop

You ARE Giant Cop! It’s your first day on the job and you need to hit the ground running in order to keep the citizens of Micro City safe. Use your size to your advantage as you tower high above the city streets enforcing the law, and use your wits to uncover a criminal plot that threatens the future of Micro City! Micro City is broken into districts, each with a distinct identity where pedestrians react to your every move. As Giant Cop, players can explore and play in the city while being tasked with missions like ridding the city of the savage cabbage, cleaning up neighbourhood crimes like noise complaints and keeping pesky protests under control. There is a colourful cast of characters, set in a 70s art and music style, that you interact with along the way.
