Inspired by a DOS game from 30 years ago, developer Charles Deck brings us Rescuties! VR, a hero and adventure game. The mission is to save animals, cute creatures and people in trouble. It’s meant to be silly. And it’s on Kickstarter now.

Be a hero: Help people in trouble and save cute animals from imminent danger in Rescuties! VR
If you’ve always thought of yourself as a hero, one that could step up to the plate when danger rears its head, Rescuties! VR may well be the game for you. Save babies and other helpless creatures in this daft yet fun looking VR game, currently in the final stages of its Kickstarter campaign.
Rescuties! VR is a ridiculous new VR game about saving falling babies (and other cute creatures) from a variety of dangerous situations. For example, in one level, babies are tossed to you from a hot air balloon, at which point you then have to throw (yes, throw) them into a nearby helicopter. Another level has players catch and simultaneously sort dogs, cats, and baby chicks into life rafts during a flood at the local animal clinic.
Rescuties! VR will allow players to be the hero in ten different disaster scenarios. The game will also include power-ups and interactive objects like whiffle bats that can make saving the babies even more ridiculous. The visual style of the game is reminiscent of the polygonal simplicity of Katamari Damacy and the developer says the musical score will also have a Katamari vibe.
The game will be available for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift (with different controls), and Charles Deck says he would love to bring it to PlayStation VR as well, given the opportunity.
