Fast Travel Games launched its award-winning (Raindance Film Festival – Best Immersive Game 2019) puzzle experience The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets for multiple VR headsets a couple of months ago. Today, the studio in collaboration with Perp Games has revealed a physical version will be arriving next month for PlayStation VR gamers in Europe.
Originally revealed during Gamescom in Cologne, Germany last year, the videogame features a heart-warming tale narrated by the players’ grandfather. Each level consists of a floating island which can be spun around to investigate the intricate details and characters within.
As the title suggests, the puzzles involve finding all of the pets hidden within each area, some easily found within structures while others require more elaborate solutions. Additionally, each level has a collection of hidden coins to discover.
Of the announcement, Andreas Juliusson, CMO at Fast Travel Games, says “The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets is a real passion project of ours and has already won the hearts of players as well as critics, recently getting a finalists nomination in the DICE Awards ‘Immersive Reality Game of the Year‘ category! I am delighted to see our heart-warming puzzler now being released on disc for PSVR players in Europe!”
“Seeing Virtual Reality games like The Curious Tale of Stolen Pets win prestigious awards at festivals shows how far the medium has come,” said Rob Edwards, Managing Director at Perp Games. “Fast Travel Games have created one of the most delightful games on PlayStation VR to date and we are absolutely thrilled to be working with them to share the Pets and their adventures with even more people at retail.”
VRFocus found The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets to be a delightful little title even if it was a little short: “The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets is a perfectly pleasant VR experience which features all the polish you’d expect from Fast Travel Games.”
Perp Games and Fast Travel Games will release The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets into European stores on 28th February for PlayStation VR. For the latest updates keep reading VRFocus.
