Bloody Zombies Developer Paw Print Games Unveils Border Patrol
The studio is currently looking for a funding partner.
British studio Paw Print Games had a successful virtual reality (VR) debut in 2017, releasing 2D beat-em-up Bloody Zombies for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR thanks to a publishing deal with nDreams. Today, the team has revealed a snippet about its next dedicated VR title, Border Patrol.
Taking to Twitter, Paw Print Games is currently in the process of looking for a funding partner to bring the experience to life, having already built a prototype presentation to showcase the teams ideas.
Aside from the above image the studio also gave a brief overview of what Border Patrol will be like, saying: “Think VR Papers Please with the lighter more humorous tone of Robo Recall and inspections with wow moments inspired by Valve’s Robot Aperture Demo.”
For those that haven’t heard of Papers, Please, it’s a 2013 videogame by developer 3909 where you play an immigration inspector on the border between the fictional communist state of Arstotzka and neighboring Kolechia, after both countries end a 6-year war with each other. As for the other two titles, most VRFocus readers should be very well aware of Valve’s Robot Aperture Demo and Epic Games five-star rated Robo Recall for Oculus Rift.
Border Patrol certainly sounds like Paw Print Games is turning its VR development up a notch, possibly moving from 2D and looking to create a 3D virtual world that’s much more hands on and interactive than Bloody Zombies visceral, action oriented design.
Hopefully Paw Print Games will acquire the funding it needs to create Border Patrol. If it does VRFocus will of course keep you updated on the latest developments.
