twobito title 1

Hi everyone!

Back on October 2016 I release a Free Gear VR game called Twobit. The reviews I received from players all around the world was very positive, the game hit 70,000+ downloads within a few months and was nominated for an award for the best VR mobile game of 2016!

Today I am pleased to announce that I have decided to move forward with Twobit Odyssey! A full-on VR puzzle action game starring our little friend Twobit! I'm delighted to announce that my VR game Twobit Odyssey has been approved by Oculus and the Gear VR version will be released next Wednesday, November 22nd! It will also be in the main section of the Oculus store!

Twobit awakens in a dark and mysterious place. But he is not alone. He sees you. You are his guide. When he asks for direction, look around the room and find a location for him to explore. When he finds a button, nod your head in agreement to activate it. Need to see what lurks in the dark? Activate the Twobit Vision and see the world through his eyes. But who is Twobit and, most importantly, who are you? Are you a figment of his imagination?

When Twobit asks for direction, a question mark appears above his head and a round cursor allows you to pick a location to explore. Once the robot has registered a new target, he then rolls into a ball and makes his way towards it.

Some elements (such as buttons) can be activated by Twobit. When he reaches them, he will ask you if you would like him to proceed - you can confirm by nodding your head "Yes" in agreement, or by shaking your head "No" in disagreement.

Players can activate the Twobit Vision at anytime during the game and see the world through Twobit's eyes. However, this feature is only useful when Twobit is opened and not rolled into a ball. The Twobit Vision gives players the ability to view the world they are exploring from another point of view. Additionally, Twobit can see things the players can't, such as flows of energy.

Twobit Odyssey Features

  • Eight mind-bending levels
    Twobit Odyssey features eight mind-bending levels, four different environments and four breathtaking bosses, totalling hours of gameplay.
  • Unique control system
    Players control Twobit only using their gaze via the VR headset. No need for a controller - players make choices by nodding "yes" in agreement, or shaking their heads for "No". The gaze control system uses a novel approach and analyses the player's field of vision, and proprietary algorithms decide of what the player is most likely looking at.
  • Designed to prevent motion sickness
    Twobit Odyssey was especially designed to prevent motion sickness, one of the main issues with first-person VR games. Special attention was given to the motion system; for instance the Twobit Vision is not available when Twobit is rolled into a ball and is therefore moving, thus preventing the player to feel dizzy.
  • Immersive 3D sound
    Sound design plays a major role in Twobit. This allows players to know exactly where Twobit and other events are located in space without needing to always look directly at Twobit or the action. These techniques are especially important in creating a believable sense of immersion to the game.



I am a solo indie developer and do everything myself, from art, modelling to coding and music. The process has more than its share of challenges, but also has more than its share of fun and exciting moments!

Here is the release trailer for my upcoming and award winner VR game TWOBIT ODYSSEY! The game will be first available for the Oculus Gear VR in November 2017! That's if everything goes according to plans. Other VR platforms will follow such as the Google Daydream and Oculus Rift.

TWOBIT ODYSSEY is a unique VR puzzle-platform game. Only using his or her gaze, the player controls a little robot in a strange world, helping him tackle problems and puzzles, and ultimately unravelling the mysteries of this dark and enigmatic place.

TWOBIT ODYSSEY is based on the award nominated TWOBIT, a game I released for the Gear VR on October 2016 and which received excellent feedback from players all around the world!


I would like to share with you the cover art illustration I just finished for my upcoming VR game Twobit Odyssey. I really wanted to create a cover reminiscent of the classic cover illustrations from the 80s and early 90s (which I am a diehard fan of!). Please don't hesitate to let me know what you think, be it positive or negative :)

The game has just been approved by Oculus and the Gear VR version will be released next Wednesday, November 22nd!
