Might and Delight are thrilled to show off the latest trailer for our current project – Child of Cooper. Along with it we are also happy to announce that along with PC and MAC versions, the title will also be VR compatible, making it our first excursion into that medium.

In Child of Cooper, you relive the memory of a child in a narrative that does not wait for your actions in order to move forward.

The trailer further showcases the games surreal world, pacing and features the haunting and rapturous soundtrack once again beautifully crafted by Retro Family.
Unravelling and making sense of the events that shape the narrative is the core of the experience.
Details on the release are still to be announced, but the game will be available on PC, MAC and VR and has been in production several months and is set to release on Steam and other platforms at a later date. You can keep us with visual updates of the production via our Tumblr here.
