Creative studio SunnyBoy entertainment, based in Old Town-Pansadena, have announced a new immersive virtual reality (VR) experience that allows users the chance to throw pies at the President of the United States.
Humble Pie, as the title is called, transports players to a dimly lit, virtual rendition of the iconic White House Oval Office for a late-night pie standoff with the President of the United States himself, Donald Trump. The satire-driven videogame offers players a chance to stand up to Donald Trump and throw a number of freshly baked pies directly into his face in a three-round videogame designed to entertain and serve as a comical form of “VR Therapy”, fusing parody with immersive gameplay features. All while providing a laughable antidote to the continues political headlines that fill our daily lives.
Stepping into the shoes of the Head Chef at the White House, players will need to take aim and land pies on the President of the United States in order to advance to the next round. The confrontation with the demanding snack-obsessed President of the United States. will put players aim to the test as they need to land five hits to make him stumble and fall into a sugar-induced trance. If players progress into the third round, two pie-wielding Secret Service agents will emerge to defend the President of the United States and the player must avoid taking hits as they continue their attack.
“Humble Pie started as a fun experiment between two of our employees, Kevin Shah and Ethan Stickley, who began developing it on the side. Once we played their prototype, we saw the promise of the game and immediately greenlit it for full production.” SunnyBoy Entertainment Co-Founder and Creative Director Craig Phillips explains. “This satirical game is about making you smile with the power of VR. Who doesn’t want to have some clean fun throwing pies at the
President? It’s virtual therapy!”
Humble Pie is available now on Steam for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, with a trailer of the title available to view below. SunnyBoy Entertainment, known for their work on creating top tier storytelling and cinematic visuals for original and branded content, have stated they will be continuing to add original content to its impressive slate of VR projects following the launch of Humble Pie.
