This was a very interesting BUZZ that I found today and wanted to share with you.

Fast Travel Games, the studio behind VR bow-shooting adventure Apex Construct (2018), announced a new narrative-based puzzle game at E3 this week called The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets.

The game, which aims to transport players back to simpler times, sounds like a pretty casual affair; it’s said to include light puzzles that require you to trigger clues and reveal hidden pets in the environment by manipulating the game’s doodads in various ways.

Fast Travel also says that there are no time limits so you can take the game at your own pace.

From what we’ve seen in the trailer (linked below), The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets is sporting a charming claymation vibe to go along with its miniature dioramas, the latter of which works really well in VR for some reason.

According to the game’s creative lead James Hunt, The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets initially started out as his personal passion project; the studio then allotted what he calls a “small but dedicated” team to its creation.

I wanted to make a game where players could take their time and marvel at the details in the environments, enjoy the music, engage with the many interactive elements in each world and solve light puzzles at their own pace to proceed – a kind of experience I felt has been missing in VR,” Hunt says.

Hunt came to Fast Travel after a three-year stint at Rovio, where he worked as senior animator on Angry Birds 2. Until recently, he had served the same role at Fast Travel, working on Apex Construct and other upcoming titles at the studio before transitioning to his current position as the game’s creative lead.

And it seems the studio has a pretty full plate at the moment. Fast Travel recently released Apex Construct on Quest, and is also currently working with Neat Corporation on the sequel to Budget Cuts (2018)Budget Cuts 2: Mission Insolvencywhich is set to release sometime this year.

The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets is slated to launch in 2019 on Quest, Rift, PSVR, Valve Index, HTC Vive, and Windows VR headsets.

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?

I want you to be the judge.
