Description

BeeBeeQ is an asymmetrical local multiplayer game where one VR player controls a Chef while up to four xbox controller players control Bees. Armed with a spatula and a fly swat the VR chef player has to try cook while the bees steal food, sting and generally harass him.

History

We started "BeeBeeQ" in June 2016 as a way to make VR gaming a more social experience, almost all games at the time were single player or at best online multiplayer, that meant when people had friends over to try the game it would mostly consist of 4 people watching while 1 person played. The idea for BeeBeeQ came from boiling down the immense scale of Shadow of the Colossus and King Kong into something that made sense when the monster was human sized, we couldn't enforce the slow motion feel that a creature of that size appears to move at but we achive the same type of scale conflict by scaling the whole thing down.

  • 4 unique environments.
