From the studio behind Skyworld & VR Dungeon Knights

Wolfdog Interactive, a Netherlands-based studio known for its work on VR titles Skyworld and VR Dungeon Knight, launched a Kickstarter in September to help fund its next VR game, a stealth-action title called Panther VR. It wasn’t clear if the crowdfunding campaign would be able to inch past the finish line in its last week, but it looks like those fears were for naught.

Update (November 4th, 2019): The Panther VR Kickstarter inched past its funding goal on the 31st, a mere 50 hours before its official close. Now concluded, the Kickstarter comes to a total of €16,246 (~$18,000) over its initial funding goal of €15,000 ($16,500).


Update (October 28th, 2019): The Panther VR Kickstarter is inching towards the finish line at 94 percent funded. The campaign only has 5 days left, and has thus far raised €14,100 (~$15,600) of the total €15,000 ($16,500).

If you’re thinking of supporting the game, definitely don’t miss Cas & Chary’s latest hands-on with Panther VR to get an idea of what’s in store.


Update (October 11th, 2019): The Panther VR Kickstarter has crossed the halfway mark with three weeks remaining. The campaign has raised nearly $10,000 of its $16,500 goal. The studio has also published the game’s Steam page so you can wishlist it if you’d like to keep track on its progress.

Original Article (September 19th, 2019): The studio says Panther VR will be a single-player game that lets you plan out your heist, choose your weapons and gadgets and infiltrate the location, giving you the ultimate choice on how the mission is completed.

The game is said to feature a number of play options including a story-based campaign, object-oriented missions called ‘contracts’, randomly generated missions, and specific community challenges.

The studio has also proposed a currently undefined stretch goal that could possibly bring local co-op mode to the game that focuses on hacking.

Early bird backer tiers are available at €16 (~$18), which gets you a Steam code for when the game hits Early Access sometime in April 2020.

The game is said to support SteamVR-compatible headsets including HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Valve Index, and Windows VR headsets.

Panther VR’s Kickstarter is asking for a total of €15,000 (~$16,600), and will come to a close on November 2nd, 2019.

At the time of this writing, the campaign has gotten to over 12% of the way to its funding goal in the first 24 hours. You can check out the Kickstarter here.

    I think this genre is right at home in VR. This looks good, we need more quality content in VR!

    This looks great. As I read through it, I couldn’t help but keep thinking that this would have been incredible if they’d set it in Shadowrun. The whole thing just seems perfect for it. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c0c207d063583f6536973b8f6c21d249b10934c9b6ea626a58384e32fa49fc46.jpg

    Does it seem messed up to anyone else that RoadToVR is always posting about Kickstarter games and never about any of the other great VR Kickstarters? Am I the only one who wants to hear about things like this?:
    I think that would be really great for the community to hear about! Hopefully RoadToVR isn’t only pay to post, that would really be a shame.

        Ya I’m starting to get the vibe that it might be pay to post unfortunately. Lately I’ve been reading both Road to VR and UploadVR. That way I can hear about new games here and learn about game changing applications of VR over at Upload and a few other outlets

        • RickityRick

          A.) That app looks sick. B.) I mean c’mon. It’s a business. Of course they’re some amount of pay to post. Get off your high horse.

          I’ll say that I’ve seen a few non-game Kickstarters on here before like this one, so they’re keeping their eye out for them.

          Keep up the good work RoadToVR, don’t listen to pumpkin. Although I do agree with GigaSora that I’d like to see more posts like this. It does seem like a cool idea.

          Panther looks sick too. Just backed.

          • Mighty Pumkpin

            Wow, I hope you don’t cook dinner with that much salt

          • GigaSora

            Even if it pay to post is acceptable, I would still like to see them post about more stuff like this. Not a lot to ask.

      Am I correct in guessing that you are involved in the Kickstarter you are here promoting? Rather than come into the comments and accuse us of opaquely taking money in exchange for articles, did you make an effort to bring this project to our attention by contacting us directly?

      • GigaSora

        Oh. That’s good to know! No honestly it was just an honest opinion. I had seen it on Kickstarter and was surprised you guys hadn’t covered it yet. And then I guess the effort required to comment was in line with how much effort I was willing to put in. And no, I’m not a part of the campaign, just thought it was cool.

          As much as I wish we had eyes everywhere, the VR world is big and there’s some stuff we don’t see. Hit us up on Twitter or at tips@roadtovr.com in the future if see something that’s worth highlighting.

          • GigaSora

            Ok. Will do! Sorry for the trouble.
