Pupperazzi allows us to run up to random dogs and snap pictures of them. Something which, sadly, is not very socially acceptable in real-life. In Pupperazzi, however, our four-legged pals roam the streets, more than happy to pose for a pic. And while it’s certainly no replacement for the real thing, it’s still an adorable little indie that turned a lot of heads when it launched earlier in the year.
Now, however, it looks like there were plans to bring the game to life even more with a VR release. Publisher Kitfoxman Games has revealed that the devs were working on a VR port of Pupperazzi at some point in development, and have even shared some early footage. It’s not known why this was eventually cut, or if the team has resumed development on the port since the initial release. But in any case, it’s an adorable look at what could have been
As you can see in the clip below, the VR test almost goes off without a hitch. The player is able to take pictures and even interact with the pup without issue – until the very end. Suddenly, the dog becomes attached to the player’s virtual hand and gets dragged up into the air alongside the camera.
It’s very possible that glitches like this got in the way of releasing Pupperazzi on VR alongside other platforms earlier this year. Sundae Month, the independent studio behind the game, is only a small team, and they already had to coordinate a release on console and PC. Fingers crossed, one day we’ll be able to cuddle those pixelated dogs up close.
Pupperazzi is out now, and is available on Xbox Series X / S, and PC via both Steam and itch.io. It’s also available on Xbox Game Pass for both console and PC, so subscribers can give it a go at no extra cost.
