The developers behind groundbreaking VR title Budget Cuts are working on a PSVR version of the game.
The stealth title started as an early HTC Vive demo allowing players to teleport from place to place and throw knives at robots. After a multi-year production cycle, Budget Cuts released for PC headsets last year with thrilling gameplay that was held back by some bugs. The game has seen several updates since release, though, and its recent reviews on Steam skew toward very positive.
right now we are working on a PSVR version of budget cuts – quest will require even more of a performance optimization but we will look into it once we are “done” with PSVR!

The PSVR version Neat Corporation developers are working on is likely to have some significant changes to account for forward-facing tracking on the headset. Nevertheless, that’s a big new title to look forward to for PSVR headset owners. We reached out to members of the Neat Corporation team to see if there’s a planned launch date for this version and we’ll update if we hear back.
As far as Oculus Quest, developers might find difficulty bringing the game down to the forthcoming standalone and its Qualcomm-based chipset. If it does make the jump to Quest at some point, though, it could be a perfect fit for the wireless system as the PC version of the game makes excellent use of 360-degree movement freedom.
Developer Marko Permanto recently recounted some early designs for Budget Cuts. The video, embedded below, does a good job showing how the creators started to hone in on their intuitive teleportation and inventory system in the game.
