Game that looks like GTA: Babies baffles world with context-free Gamescom trailer Children characters in upcoming game DokeV sit outside on a stone stairway.

The DokeV trailer that appeared during the Gamescom Opening Night Live stream today is only about four minutes long, but somehow it felt like ten generations lived and died while the MMO's child avatars terrorized a city (or maybe protected it) using what looks like leftover inventory from every bankrupt Toys R Us store.

It looks pretty cool, though. DokeV (pronounced doh-keh-vee) was announced in 2019, and comes from Black Desert Online developer Pearl Abyss. They describe it as “a casual, open world adventure filled with lovable stories” in which players will collect Dokebi, “whimsical creatures that live side-by-side with humans and encourage people's dreams from which they gain strength.”

If all that were obvious from the trailer, those four minutes might not have felt so endless, but the video doesn't lead with any context. It just gets right to it: Here are some eight-year-olds tearing up a city on skateboards, bikes, and roller skates. And fighting robots. And monsters. And flying. And sucking monsters into vacuum cleaners? Now one of them is riding a llama, now one of them is jet skiing, and now one of them is hanging out with a bear who is a boxer.

Games starring kids are somewhat rare—seen mainly in Earthbound and Pokémon homages—which perhaps contributes to the uncanniness. (Although this game was probably inspired by both.)

A release date for DokeV hasn't been announced, but the latest on the game can be found on the official website, where you can also download the song from the trailer.
