We've seen some odd concepts in gaming before, but a giant squid attempting to fix our town in virtual reality is certainly up there. Brought to us by Firepunchd and Devolver Digital, Tentacular launches on Quest & SteamVR later this year.
Announced via a press release, Devolver Digital issued this statement:
Ever felt like a squid out of water? Tentacular plunges you into the ocean-dwelling hulk of a gigantic, kind-hearted tentacled beast trying to figure out its place in the world. Raised among humans on the bustling and eccentric island of La Kalma, Tentacular tasks players with helping their human friends to research a strange and powerful energy source through action-based activities and construction puzzles.

Elaborating further, Devolver confirms players will need to "tame your titanic tentacles" in this quest. The further we progress, the more elements we'll unlock for a creative sandbox mode, letting us build "your very own playground."
As stated before, Tentacular arrives on Meta Quest & SteamVR in 2022, though we don't have a specific release date. You can check out the official website for more details, and we'll keep you informed with further virtual reality news as we hear it.
