    The music, composed by Marble Machines creators Wintergatan, is definitely one of the highlights of the game. It enhances the already charming aesthetic of the game and managed to put a smile on my face the entire time.

    It’s genuinely difficult to play the game without a smile on my face and I only hoped for more creativity, more whimsical delights, and more exploration of the character’s forgotten past. It borders on feeling too shallow at times, but all-in-all does a masterful job of exploring its themes before it’s all over and that’s all you can really ask for from a puzzle game of this temperament.

    While The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets doesn’t actually offer up a curious tale at all, it is worth a look for the creative model-sized VR worlds available to play around with. It won’t last long, but this one’s a family-friendly puzzler that especially the youngest among us will enjoy.

    The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets is a perfectly pleasant VR experience which features all the polish you’d expect from Fast Travel Games. If you have a child who’s really eager to try VR for the first time but you don’t want them jumping all over the place, damaging either equipment or themselves then this ideal. For everyone else, at the right price, The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets is still worth a pop, its a charming little VR experience.
