The asymmetrical co-op VR game Carly And The Reaperman: Escape from the Underworld will be hitting the Oculus Quest this April. The game was originally released in 2018 for the PC VR with a PSVR version released afterward. This means that Carly and The Reaperman will be available on all major VR headsets. The game is currently available for Wishlist in the Coming Soon section.
Studio Resolution Games will be bringing the highly acclaimed VR platformer by Odd Raven Studios to the Oculus Quest. Resolution Games already has multiplayer party games like Cook-Out: A Sandwich Tale and Acron: Attack of the Squirrels on the platform. The agreement to work together and port the game to Oculus Quest and Quest 2 for the first time marks a major move for Resolution Games. The company hints that this is likely the first of many such publishing partnerships after successfully launching six games to Oculus Quest already.
In the game, players will have to control one of two characters cooperating together to complete the level. One player will take the role of the overseeing Reaperman, who will be using VR controls to manipulate the level environment. Whereas the other player will take the role of Carly, a recently deceased girl making her way through the Underworld. Playing as Carly will be done through the more traditional third-person platform perspective with the Reaperman helping reach their goal and solve puzzles.
With the prior PC and PSVR versions, developers Resolution Games had one player, playing Reaperman on VR, and the other controlling Carly on the flat screen via the same system. The Oculus Quest version will require the use of two headsets.
Carly and the Reaperman has been well received on prior platforms, though the game did not garner a lot of popularity. The Quest version of Carly and The Reaperman will be releasing on April 15 priced at $20. At the time of writing, there is currently no word about cross-buy nor is there any news if the game will come with cross-platform support.
