'Traffic Jams' Announced

by Rainier on May 28, 2020 @ 7:41 p.m. PDT

Traffic Jams is a tongue-in-cheek VR game where all traffic lights have gone out and you are the only one who can keep traffic flowing in the face of outrageous events and flagrant road rage.

In a world without traffic lights, one reigns supreme. Step onto the crossroads as Danny – the world’s worst traffic controller – to keep traffic flowing in the face of outrageous events and flagrant road rage.

Starting out on a quiet corner in a small town, job offers soon start pouring in from iconic cities around the globe where it’s up to you to guide rude pedestrians, impatient drivers, and the occasional meteorite along before road rage strikes. Sound easy? Think again! This chaotic VR game is full of monsters, (un)natural disasters, and something called… ‘cheese bowling’?

“VR is successfully carving out its place in the living room and we immediately saw the potential of Traffic Jams to excite both new and experienced VR players there,” said Richard Stitselaar, Managing Director at Vertigo Games. “Its playful art style and fun characters combined with easy to pick-up, hard to master gameplay makes it appealing and accessible to a wide audience in a genre that has not yet seen its fill. We’re thrilled to combine our forces with old friends at Little Chicken and help them bring this gem to VR players worldwide.”

“In Vertigo Games we found the ideal partner and publisher for Traffic Jams,” said Yannis Bolman, CEO at Little Chicken Game Company. “Not only do they provide a wealth of information about the world of VR games through their experience in this field, in Vertigo Games we found like-minded souls that enjoy creativity and crazy ideas to make the most of this unique medium we call VR. Next to this synergy we've known the people at Vertigo for many years, and it's been an absolute pleasure to work with them and combine our powers through Traffic Jams.

Traffic Jams will be coming to major VR platforms later this year.
