There’s no doubt that Resolution Games is a prolific creator of virtual reality (VR) titles, in the last two months alone it launched Cook-Out: A Sandwich Tale and Blaston. Now, the studio has announced a partnership with Odd Raven Studios to bring Carly and the Reaperman to Oculus Quest.
First released back in 2018 for multiple platforms including PlayStation VR and PC VR headsets, Carly and the Reaperman is built around co-op gameplay where the VR-player controls the Reaperman, helping Carly – the non-VR player – escape the underworld. Players have 50 levels to work through, unlocking plenty of customisable options along the way.
While the core experience is built around co-op gaming, Odd Raven Studios has included a solo mode where one person can control both characters.
“Carly and the Reaperman is a great fit for Resolution Games’ library of multi-player co-op games. This partnership is a big milestone not only for Resolution Games but for the VR industry as well,” explained Tommy Palm, CEO of Resolution Games in a statement. “As part of this and future relationships, our studio is able to use our skills honed over the last five-plus years to help other developers navigate all the elements to bring their existing virtual reality games to more platforms. With more titles available on the Oculus Quest platform than any other developer out there, we have a healthy amount of experience in the whole process – whether it’s development, platform relations, trailer and store support, marketing, community relations and more – especially when it comes to moving more swiftly in bringing challenging titles to market like multiplayer and cross-platform games.”
“Resolution Games has proven to be a leader in the VR space by providing top titles and being the most proficient studio at multiplayer and cross-platform games, so we feel that their expertise is a perfect fit to help take Carly and the Reaperman to the Quest audience,” adds Johan Högfeldt, CTO of Odd Raven Studios. “They’ve also proven they can effectively handle external IP (Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs), and we’re confident that together we will be able to bring success to our game.”
Today’s announcement marks the start of Resolutions Games’ publishing initiative, looking to help more VR videogame developers bring their projects to market. Currently, Carly and the Reaperman for Oculus Quest and Quest 2 is expected in the first half of 2021. For further updates, keep reading VRFocus.
