‘The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets’ Awarded for Best Immersive Game at Raindance Film Festival

Virtual reality has finally gotten a foothold on the gaming industry. Dedicated devices like the Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR are getting more sophisticated, so it’s no surprise that VR games are also getting better.

Beat Saber, Tetris Effect, and No Man’s Sky are just some of the VR games available today that you can enjoy. Including itself in the list of games to watch out for VR is The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets which won the Best Immersive Game award.

Scaled exploration and puzzle-solving

Fast Travel Games has been creating VR games exclusively, with The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets being one of them. Creative lead James Hunt said that he hopes this game “make people smile and maybe also cry a little as they play”.

The premise revolves around the mystery of the stolen pets. You’ll be helping your grandfather in uncovering this in different miniature worlds. As you explore each world and solve puzzles, you’ll be revisiting your past.

Last week, the game won the Best Immersive Game during the Raindance Immersive Awards. The awards were held during the 27th Raindance Film Festival that highlights and teaches the art of indie films.

The awards were to highlight the best of VR, AR, and MR. Alongside its nomination were Maze Theory’s Doctor Who: The Edge of Time, Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky, and Italic Pig’s The Infinite Hotel. Aside from bringing home the Best Immersive Game award, the game also bagged the Stamp Audio Filmmaker Prize for Best VR Project.


The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets will be available on Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, PS VR, HTC VIVE, and Windows Mixed Reality at the end of 2019. You can also add this to your Steam wish list to keep an eye out for the game’s release.
