Tampere-based studio Catland has announced their second VR title The Spy Who Shrunk Me for PC, as well as a successful new funding round.
The Spy Who Shrunk Me features immersive first-person stealth gameplay and scale-bending “shrink ray” mechanics, tongue-in-cheek humor and a wild 80s aesthetic.
“The Spy Who Shrunk Me is a love letter to spy movies, immersive simulations and other games in the stealth genre,” says Catland CEO Tomi Toikka. “Armed with a ‘shrink ray’, you can dip enemy soldiers into paper shredders, make them run on hamster wheels – or just shrink yourself to get past opponents. Just don’t get stomped.”
Check out the teaser trailer:
The Spy Who Shrunk Me is slated for release on Steam in 2018. Learn more about the game here.
Catland has also secured additional funding in an investment round led by Sisu Game Ventures (Remedy founder Samuli Syvähuoko), Jaakko Manninen (Vizor CTO), Sami Vanhatalo (Remedy founder and Combo Breaker chairman) and Niko Punin (entrepreneur and business angel).
“Catland proved they are a nimble, versatile and above all playful bunch of game developers with their amazingly fun Taphouse VR last year,” says Nordic XR Startups MD and early Catland investor Harri Manninen. “I like their strategy of going after the larger PC market while still delivering unique and eye-opening experiences in VR.”
Finnish Catland Ltd was founded in 2017 and creates games for PC and virtual reality platforms.
