Have you ever looked at a traffic controller standing at a busy intersection and thought, “Man, I would really love to try that out without any of the stress or risk of managing cars in real life”?
Well, have we got the game for you.
Traffic Jams is a new VR game from Little Chicken which will place you in the middle of an increasingly busy intersection, managing cars, buses, pedestrians and more. The art style is absolutely adorable and over-the-top, with little cartoon humans flying into the air and making increasingly frustrated Sims-like gibberish noises as everything starts to go haywire.
If you want to keep up with the game, there’s a dedicated Traffic Jams subreddit, where the devs have been sharing some funny behind-the-scenes looks at development, test runs of the game’s mechanics and some cool concept art (pictured above).
The developers have said that they’re aiming to launch on Oculus’ platforms first, however they’re not fully committing to a Quest version just yet. They have said that despite aiming for the Oculus store initially, they do want the game “everywhere” and Quest is “definitely a platform [they’re] aiming for.” You can also see what appears to be a PlayStation Move controller at about 14 seconds into the teaser trailer, so a PSVR version might not be a far cry either.
There’s no set release date or price just yet, but the developers have said they want the game out as soon as possible. Keep an eye out for any further news.
