Critical Charm’s first game is a VR game where the player is tasked with defending their village from the hordes set on them by the King, who are intent on taking everything the villagers have. As the only Giant the player will have to smash, bash, and mash the enemies while rallying the villagers and rebuilding the defenses to hold off the attacks. A Giant Problem is currently in development for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. A Giant Problem launches in Steam Early Access on April 1, 2020.


Critical Charm was founded in June, 2018 with the goal of making amazing video games. The team worked through a number of prototypes eventually settling on what would become A Giant Problem. Pun intended.

A Giant Problem will be their first release for VR. And have been developing the game since December, 2018.

Critical Charm works out of the Helsinki XR Center, is a member of the Finnish Virtual Reality Association (FIVR), and is participating in Farm League, the game incubator at Games Factory.

Critical Charm is making XR games where strong story meets solid gameplay. They’re planning their next game even now, and if a game suits a particular platform they’ll happily work to get it there.
