History

After several successful mobile apps, mode of expression, LLC and its founder Charlie Deck are turning their sights on virtual reality! Initially conceived as a warm-up to a gamejam weekend, Rescuties is a game that was designed from first principles to be a fun and purpose-made virtual reality experience. After gifs of early gameplay went viral, the game was Kickstarted in May, 2016 (ongoing at http://bit.ly/rescutiesvr). From 3d audio to procedurally generated level sequences, Rescuties! demands the full attention of all your senses as you struggle to save the day--and the cuties!
