The Lost Bear (2017), Odd Bug Studio’s cinematic 2D VR platformer for PSVR, is making its way to Oculus Rift headsets in time for Christmas.
With its charming hand-drawn style, The Lost Bear follows Walnut on her journey home through a strange and abandoned world that’s been corrupted by the toy-stealing Snatcher. Combining both 3D VR environments and 2D platforming, you solve puzzles as Walnut desperately tries to escape The Snatcher’s Hounds on her way back home—all in service to Walnut’s favorite teddy bear.
Released back in September exclusively for PlayStation VR, The Lost Bear currently holds a [4.5/5] star rating on PSN. The studio says in their Rift support announcement that one of their biggest inspirations is Playdead’s hit indie side-scrollers Limbo (2011) and Inside (2016).
Unlike its PSVR release, the Rift version is said to feature motion controller support.
Take a look at some of the mechanics below to get a better idea of how The Lost Bear marries traditional 2D platformer action with the 3D VR world.
