[Bonn, Germany] January 23rd, 2020 - Brainseed Factory is excited as they are all geared up for the launch of their virtual reality puzzler Squishies.

Roll Them Home

Squishies is a head-scratching, single player, puzzle focused VR platformer where you guide cute and courageous creatures through hazardous and challenging mazes.

Use unique motion controls to push and pull the Squishies through their adventures in a colorful universe full of strange flora and fauna. Keep those little rascals safe while they climb, jump, fly and teleport-by-fish through 100 levels in five alien worlds.

Level Editor

Squishies really comes into its own with its innovative, fully featured community creation tools. The same tools that we have used to build the game have been made available to everyone, enabling you to create levels of your own. These levels can be shared with your friends and the rest of the world via integrated cross-platform sharing!

We’re super happy to finally bring our beloved Squishies to PC players! And the best thing is that community levels can be shared between PCVR & PSVR players!” - Bilal Chbib, Game Producer & Founder of Brainseed Factory

Solve puzzles and save the Squishies or be creative and build your own levels - then share them with the community!


Squishies released back in November 2018 as a PlayStation®VR game. To bring the game to Steam VR and Oculus Rift gamers the studio decided to partner up with Massive Miniteam, an indie game studio based in Cologne, Germany.

Before Massive Miniteam, our founders created the prototype for Squishies while working at Brainseed Factory and we’ve always felt a strong connection to this title – that's why we're overjoyed about this opportunity to rejoin the game and its community! We can’t wait to see players all over the world roll the little critters around and build their own levels for us to try!” - Milan Pingel, creative producer and co-founder of Massive Miniteam

Due to popular demand all level editor features are unlocked from the get go with the launch of the Steam edition. Along with this, the developers put in a great deal of effort to make sure that the game performance and graphics could witness improvements too.

The Oculus Store release is underway and will be announced soon.
