For those who like a good comedy caper, indie developer Catland Ltd has today launched its next title, The Spy Who Shrunk Me. While the title doesn’t currently support virtual reality (VR) the studio has plans to add support early next year.
Catland Ltd has already got one VR title under its belt, Taphouse VR, with The Spy Who Shrunk Me set to be even bigger and better than its forebear.
The Spy Who Shrunk Me is currently an Early Access title on Steam, with the studio planning on a short gestation period, fully launching early 2019. In its current form: “The Spy Who Shrunk Me is playable from start to finish, we’re just missing a few neat features like localization, proper polish, probably that one options menu setting you want and the entire VR version of the game,” the team notes. “If you want to jump in, we’ve got a great fully voice-acted story with stealth action ready for you from the get-go! Jump in later, we’ll have more levels to play and more gadgets to use.”
Gameplay is focused on stealth, where you play a superspy tasked with unravelling a terrifying secret in 1980s Moscow which threatens to turn the Cold War into a fiery one. Being a spy experience you need some cool gadgets, such as the titular shrink ray, teleporter ray, airbag mines, and of course everyone’s favourite, the banana.
Missions range from hacking servers, sabotaging equipment, extracting targets and taking out key personnel to saving the world itself from the Soviet menace.
VR support will be added in Q1 2019 for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality headsets. If you purchase the standard version now, you’ll get the VR version as a free update when it arrives. Currently, The Spy Who Shrunk Me is on offer knocking 15 percent off the regular price until 25th December. For further updates on the title, keep reading VRFocus.
