With the recent controversy and explosion of commentary on the recent acquisition of VR headset Oculus Rift by Facebook, many developers and those in the gaming community were very vocal about their stance on the topic and the news of the purchase. What is development studio Twinbeard’s solution? Buy back Oculus Rift from Facebook.
Frog Fractions 2, the latest title being developed by Twinbeard and currently being crowdfunded through Kickstarter, has added a new stretch goal (jokingly) at a $2 billion goal: “Buy Oculus back from Facebook.”
With Twinbeard taking a similar stance to Markus “Notch” Persson, who canceled the upcoming Oculus version of Minecraft due to the Facebook/Oculus purchase, the studio stands in opposition to the recent news; but, it’s nice to know that if the funding for the game goes well to $2 billion, that situation might change.
Frog Fractions 2 currently stands at nearly $44,000 out of its target funding goal of $60,000.
