VR platformer Stilt leaps onto Quest, PSVR 2 and Steam in March

Stilt is a vibrant VR platformer coming soon to Meta Quest, Playstation VR 2 and PC VR headsets.

FACTS

The Swedish developer duo of Rekt Games describes the game as follows:

Stilt launches players into a vibrant VR platformer experience, bouncing with inspiration from classic favorites. Navigate through its colorful levels using quick reflexes and adept problem-solving skills while gathering lost gift packages and stamps. With the aid of your wit and stilts, bounce over chasms, sidestep traps, dismantle obstacles, and engage with creatures along the way. Discover hidden power-ups that add an extra spring to your step, allowing you to ascend to the pinnacle of stilt mastery.

In addition to the single player campaign, there will be a lobby to hang out with other players and four PVP multiplayer modes:

'Smack-em-all!' encourages skillful bounces to send opponents into the sea, while 'Area Bash' tests your agility within a shifting boundary. Navigate 'Electric Tag' carefully to avoid zaps and aim for balloon-popping success in 'Balloon Hunt'. Between matches, explore the lively lobby area to meet fellow players and gear up for your next bouncy adventure.

Stilt will be released on March 8, 2024 in the App Lab for Meta Quest, in the Playstation Store for Playstation VR 2, and on Steam for PC VR headsets. It will be priced at $19.99.

CONTEXT

March looks to be a good month for fans of platformers, especially since Max Mustard is also coming out in March. In the latter, however, you play in third-person view.

The past year has seen a slew of first-person VR platformers with arm-based locomotion, perhaps due to the popularity of Gorilla Tag, with No More Rainbows, Toss, Outta Hand, and soon Stilt hitting VR headsets.
