Beautiful flying adventure Kid Pilot set to hit Steam VR later this month

Indie developer Flamingo Simulation Systems is hoping the upcoming release of Kid Pilot will combine childhood nostalgia with modern hardware to bring a VR experience to the whole family when it launches for PC VR later this month (May 23rd), although there is no sign of a Quest release at this stage even though the trailer heavily features the Quest 3 headset and controllers – it could just be that it is being used as a PCVR headset although Meta’s logo also appears on the trailer’s thumbnail.
