Anticipated VR Stealth Game Budget Cuts Is Nearly Finished

by Jamie Feltham • January 10th, 2018

It’s been a long wait, but it appears Neat Corporation’s Budget Cuts is finally nearly ready for the spotlight.

Neat CEO and Founder Jenny Nordenberg recently confirmed as much in a tweet to developer Ken Levine. The CEO said the team was ‘soon finished’ with the game and that they were ‘super happy’ with it, which is an encouraging sign.

For those that don’t know, Budget Cuts is a first-person stealth action game in which the player sneaks around facilities neutralizing robots while also avoiding detection. Back in 2015 it is one of the first HTC Vive experiences that seemed to resemble a full game, and a demo was released around the time of the Vive’s launch in the first half of 2016. Since then, however, Neat Corporation has maintained radio silence about the project, so we’re excited to see how it’s evolved over the past two years.

    wow… it took them a long time. I already have forgotten it.

    It’s been awhile, but the demo was excellent and I’d much rather wait and play an tightly polished game. There’s a lot of half-finished VR “experiences” out there that really do the whole platform a disservice. Quality is worth waiting for.

  • Just played a bit of the demo a few weeks ago. Looking forward to the final product.

    This was one of the first experiences (demos) I tried when I first purchased my Vive way, way back. Glad to hear it is finally releasing. 🙂
