Squido Studio announced its first-person platformer No More Rainbows is coming to Quest 2 and PC VR headsets next month, offering up a VR take on classic platforming action.

Update (May 22nd, 2023): Squido announced that No More Rainbows is heading to Meta Quest 2 and SteamVR headsets on June 1st. The original article follows below:

Original Article (April 26th, 2023): No More Rainbows has been available in open beta on Quest’s App Lab for a year now, and it’s almost time for it to graduate to the main Quest Store and Steam too. Exactly when, we don’t know, but Squido and its partner Robot Teddy say it’s coming “very soon.”

Here’s the studio’s description of the first-person VR platformer:

In No More Rainbows, you are The Beast, who must spring forth into a fantastical virtual reality world to reclaim your home from the beings of infinite happiness that have infested the Underworld! Bizou and their merry band of minions plan to take over your sanctuary of screams and turn it into a bountiful paradise where cries of pain and torment are replaced by kisses and rainbows… what a nightmare! Use arm-based locomotion mechanics to run, jump, claw, and climb using only your hands and arms to engage with tight platformer mechanics.

In the full release, the game is set to include four unique campaign worlds, environmental storytelling, multiplayer modes, beast personalization, leaderboards, and boss encounters. Squido says the full game has around five hours of gameplay.

The open beta on Quest will be removed from App Lab on May 2nd, which follows a Dev Day on May 1st where players can hang out with the game’s developers. In the meantime, you can also wishlist it on Steam here.

  • I love the fact that you have to kill the happy rainbow creatures… so fun!

      Why? The game is great but for me that was really off putting. Why do I have to attack harmless creatures? Not to mention that rainbows symbolize diversity and it can be interpreted as homophobic.

      I had a similar problem with the Budget Cuts DLC. Budget Cuts has “achievements” for harming worker robots. I successfully avoided getting those until in the DLC a bug had a knife fall through the floor and hit a worker. Stopped playing right there.

        +1. I guess it panders to psychopaths / sociopaths.

          Well, playing as evil is an option often given in open games. And games without options having you play as the bad guy are a thing too. Games are the right place to explore these behaviors as no one actually is hurt.

          And I guess there might be some story twist later. Or not.

          Anyway, the gamplay is good so I’ll play it regardless.
