Pus Pus Platypus
Tech: C#, Unity, Occulus Rift, GLSL
Play the game in your browser
Download the game for Windows 7/8
Pus Pus Platypus is a game made in Unity for the Indie Speed Run 2013. I Particpated in it on a local event during my Erasmus on the University of Applied Sciences in Kajaani. Together with Pieter Vantorre, Tachion and Samuli Jääskeläinen we made this trippy 3D Game. It was the first game I ever made with the Occulus Rift. Using this technology was quite exciting and so I hope that you can test the game with an Occulus Rift.

This game was selected by jury member Ron Gilbert as one of the 18 Global finalists of the Indie Speed Run 2.0. This is what he had to say about it:
A deceivingly delightful game where you blow kisses at enemies rather than bullets. I was initially perplexed by this game and then the charm of it overcame me and I played it over and over trying to blow kisses to everything/everyone I saw.
