The Jim Henson Company has signed a deal with Mighty Coconut – the entertainment studio behind the multiplayer game on the MetaQuest: “Walkabout Mini Golf” – to develop a 36-hole VR course set in the world of Jim Henson’s 1986 fantasy film “Labyrinth.” The course will be available on MetaQuest, Steam and forthcoming VR platforms this summer.
“The fantastical world of ‘Labyrinth’ has intrigued generations of fans who are invited to explore this virtual reality mini golf course that will take players right inside the Goblin Kingdom,” says Melissa Segal, head of consumer products, The Jim Henson Company. “People will be able to explore the world Jim Henson created, encounter the creatures from the film and have friends from all over the world join them in the fun – all around the inclusive game of mini golf.”
The base game of Walkabout Mini Golf includes eight courses, each including 36 holes. Mighty Coconut is subsequently releasing individual add-on courses as downloadable content (DLC). “Walkabout Mini Golf: Labyrinth” will be a DLC course for the game but will “level up” on features and interactivity.
“We’re so thrilled to be working with The Jim Henson Company for our first licensed course … they have been terrific partners, helping us stay true to the original ‘Labyrinth,’ while also allowing us to have fun and be inventive as we create what is basically an entire virtual theme park, with a mini-golf course attached,” says Lucas Martell, executive producer and head, Mighty Coconut.
