Hand Tracking to be added to ‘The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets’

by

Fast Travel Games’ award-winning VR puzzle game The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets is getting official support for Hand Tracking later this month, which means players on the Oculus Quest will be able to play the whole game, solve the puzzles and interact with all the elements in the game’s miniature worlds simply by using their real fingers and hands – removing the need for any controllers at all.

Hand tracking really does enhance immersion and is the perfect fit for The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets“, says James Hunt, Creative Lead on the game. “It adds a whole new level of connection between the player and the miniature worlds with all their interactive elements. Things like picking up snowballs, waving a magic wand or just petting the pets once you’ve found them feels more real – and fun! – than ever before.

In The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets, you get to help your grandfather solve the mystery of the stolen pets by exploring miniature worlds crafted from the ground up for VR. Every world is unique, full of playful interactions, joyful puzzles and colorful life. The game is critically acclaimed and has won 2 awards, with another 5 award finalist nominations since its launch.

It is available at ~$14.99/€14.99/£11.99 for Oculus Quest in the Oculus Store, and supports Cross-buy between the Quest & Rift versions.
