“Like his reallife counterparts, Mr. Jungle has a lot to be happy about,” says authordirector Joerg Tittel, whose company Oiffy is producing the game. “As he makes billions, hordes of increasingly dehumanized workers struggle to get you the superherothemed electric brush head in time. Of course we couldn’t let him get all the $$$, so we made this cynical product for you. Happy capitalist hoho horror!”
“The player embodies Kurt, a tall man with a big beard who delivers ‘gifts’ on a flying scooter,” said Ryan Bousfield, creative director at Wolf & Wood. “Even though you have robots instead of reindeer, it’s a testament to the immersive power of VR that such an unusual and stylized world still feels ‘real’ when you’re in it!”
