Tampere, Finland, April 9th 2019 – Finnish videogame developer Catland releases virtual reality version of beloved spy comedy game “The Spy Who Shrunk Me VR” and announces new sequel to fan-favorite Taphouse series “Taphouse 2: The Taphousening” for PC & VR.

Catland, indie team of six from Tampere, Finland today announced the immediate availability of The Spy Who Shrunk Me VR, the virtual reality edition of The Spy Who Shrunk Me. The Spy Who Shrunk Me VR is available on the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Microsoft Mixed Reality headsets through SteamVR. The VR edition is free of charge to all current owners of The Spy Who Shrunk Me.

Step into the high heels of Audrey Smoothspy, legendary superspy armed with a shrink ray and banana peels to save the world from the Soviet menace! It is 1981 and a sinister plot hidden inside a Moscow software house is about to turn the Cold War red hot. Stop General Bolscotchkovich by kidnapping a scientist to a purse, driving a miniature car, defusing a nuke and dropping guards down toilets and paper shredders!

“The goal of Catland is to make hilarious videogames that embrace insanity. If we can make you think ‘what the hell are we playing right now’, we have succeeded at that. We are delighted to finally ship The Spy Who Shrunk Me to VR - the game feels entirely different in VR due to the amazing feeling of scale through the use of the shrink ray,” said Tomi Toikka, Founder, CEO & Creative Director of Catland.

The game will be available on both PC and virtual reality platforms. The game is set for a summer release with a $5.99 or regional equivalent price tag. 

“Taphouse 2: The Taphousening has been requested the most from our fans and we are delighted to tell you it is indeed in production.
