Cute Puzzler The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets Arrives Next Month
November is looking to be a bumper month with the likes of Stormland, Golem and Doctor Who: The Edge of Time all confirmed. Adding to that list is Fast Travel Games with its charming puzzle experience The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets, arriving in about three weeks.
Only announced back in June during the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2019, the videogame then made its first playable debut in August at Gamescom. VRFocus previewed the title, finding that: “The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets is very reminiscent of titles like Luna and Ghost Giant, playful and entirely happy to do its own thing.”
Having recently won the ‘Best Immersive Game’ award at the 2019 Raindance Film Festival, The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets offers players the chance to explore miniature worlds. Following a storyline where you get to help your grandfather solve the mystery of the stolen pets, each of these worlds hides three pets behind evermore elaborate puzzles. Each level can be spun around for players to fully investigate each beautifully designed location.
“Our fantastic journey is coming to a conclusion!” says James Hunt, Creative Lead in a statement. “It started with an idea I had back in December last year, to make a highly immersive game that would be accessible to anyone, regardless of age of gaming preferences. A game to simply enjoy at you own pace, where you could marvel at the details in each world and play around with all the interactive elements. And we are letting you do that while enjoying the amazing music of Wintergatan! I am so proud of the work from our small and passionate team, and simply cannot wait for November 14 to come!”
The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets will support Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, Valve Index and Windows Mixed Reality headsets on 14th November 2019. Priced at $14.99 USD/€14.99 EUR/£11.99 GBP, the Oculus Rift and Quest versions will support cross-buy. Additionally, the title will include localized subtitles for Spanish (main & LATAM versions), French, German, Russian, Italian, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Korean & Brazilian Portuguese.
