Cardiff, Wales – February 13th, 2018 – Independent games developer Dakko Dakko, the company behind acclaimed titles Scram Kitty And His Buddy On Rails, Floating Cloud God Saves the Pilgrims, and The 2D Adventures of Rotating Octopus Character, has today released its PSVR-exclusive, Pop-Up Pilgrims.
In Pop-Up Pilgrims, the team’s first foray into virtual-reality, players guide their group of devoted followers across colorful pop-up islands – uniquely presented as 2D platforms in a wraparound 3D space. More than 50 layered stages curve around the player as the pilgrims jump from platform to platform in an effort to reclaim their beloved deity’s stolen source of power.
“We’re very excited to be releasing Pop-Up Pilgrims as our debut on PSVR,” said Rhodri Broadbent, founder of Dakko Dakko. “Making this game in our own custom-built VR engine has meant that the visuals and gameplay really mesh well together. We think Pop-Up Pilgrims is a totally unique VR experience, as well as a great continuation of the style we’ve developed at Dakko Dakko.”
Set in beautifully hand-drawn world, you’ll manage the pilgrims’ migration as they mill about its menagerie of pop-up islands, contending with a slew of demonic bosses along the way. All this is set to the catchy, upbeat tunes Dakko Dakko is known for, and with their charming character designs leaping out like never before in a glorious VR space.
