About The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets

Experience an interactive tale of childlike wonder! Help your grandfather solve the mystery of the stolen pets by exploring wonderful miniature worlds crafted from the ground up for VR. Use a hairdryer to melt snow in a wintery landscape! Search the wreck of a pirate ship partially hidden under the surface!

What makes my game unique?

The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets is a heart-warming, wondrous experience with so much love going into all the details in all the miniature worlds you have in front of you, with hundreds of unique interactions to experiment with and a custom made "claymation" style animation to make it look like a cartoon from the past. In spite of the colorful worlds and all the cute animals, the game is wrapped around a more grown-up story about memories, childhood and broken relationships, as your Grandfather takes you back to the adventures you used to embark on as a kid.

Why could my game win an award?

Adding to this its unique style and tone, and the sense of wonder and curiosity players feel when exploring the miniature worlds, and it is clear that our game brings a new kind of experience to VR gaming.
