Today sees a new developer make its entrance into the virtual reality (VR) scene. Stockholm-based Might and Delight consists of a team that has collectively worked on the likes of Battlefield and Killzone, and has released a handful of titles since its founding in 2010. These include the award-winning Shelter and Pid. Today, the developer has confirmed to VRFocus that its upcoming story-based title, Child of Cooper, will be supporting the technology when it releases later down the line.
Little is known about Child of Cooper so far, though the developer has revealed that it casts players as a character that’s reliving their a childhood memory. Much of the experience is being left for players to discover for themselves. Even the control scheme, for example, is something that a player must work out for themself. Much of the title’s draw comes from deciphering the surreal art style and images that players will encounter, and it’s also hinted that each player can have a very different experience based on how they engage with the title.
As for VR support, it’s not yet clear which head-mounted displays (HMDs) will be supported, although a PC release makes both the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive likely candidates. The title is already listed over on Steam, although details such as a release date and price are yet to be revealed. The first teaser for the title, which was released all the way back in May 2015, can also be seen below. This provides a quick glimpse into the experience’s surreal and unique visuals.
VRFocus will continue to follow Child of Cooper closely, reporting back with the latest updates on its progress.
