The Team Behind Goat Simulator to publish VR Puppet Charades Hybrid game Puppet Fever
Puppet Fever is Coffee Stain’s (Goat Simulator) first VR project and marks Coffee Stain’s first contribution to making VR the future of gaming. It is developed by Swedish indie studio Coastalbyte.
Coastalbyte was early to pick up VR development and found a match made in heaven during Dreamhack Winter 2016. Coffee Stain Publishing hosted a VR game jam in order to scout new teams and projects. The jam resulted in a rough prototype of what was going to become Puppet Fever.
Puppet Fever is about acting, shouting and peeking inside of your friends' heads. In Puppet Fever players are taking turns to be the puppet master of a virtual puppet theatre. The puppet master serves as game show host, judge and actor as the other players guess the hidden word, much like a game of charades.
Puppet fever offers a novel way of playing with your friends in VR using only one headset.
