Carly and the Reaperman, the cooperative VR platformer from Odd Raven Studios, is arriving on on Oculus Quest April 15th.
The news was confirmed over on Twitter this week. Carly and the Reaperman first came to PC VR and PSVR platforms in 2018 but, in late 2020, Cook-Out developer Resolution Games announced that it would be publishing a Quest port of the experience. The game’s now available to wishlist in the Coming Soon section of the Oculus Quest store. Check out a trailer for an older version of the game below.
The game requires two players. One will take control of Carly, a recently-deceased girl that finds herself in the world of spirits. She’s controlled from a third-person perspective and plays like a traditional platformer, jumping over obstacles etc. The other player, meanwhile, utilizes VR controls as the Reaperman, who can pick up platforms and help taxi Carly to her goal, or solve puzzles to unlock pathways.
On PC and PSVR, Carly and the Reaperman saw players use a flat screen to control Carly and jump into VR for the Reaperman via the same system. On Quest, however, the game requires two headsets, meaning the player controlling Carly will be in VR too. We’ll definitely be interested to see how this changes up the experience.
April is quickly stacking up for Quest releases – the month kicks off with the launch of Floor Plan 2 and will also see the arrival of Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife and a VR version of Star Wars pinball. What are you going to be picking up? Let us know in the comments below!
