Dev jokingly sets Kickstarter goal of $2B to buy back Oculus VR from Facebook

According to a report today from GameSpot, Frog Fractions 2 developer Twinbeard Studios has set an unusual, and lofty, crowd-sourcing goal for the sequel to Frog Fractions: If they reach $2 billion in contributions they’ll buy back virtual reality hardware developer Oculus VR from Facebook.

Clearly poking fun at the acquisition of the virtual reality hardware developer by the social media conglomerate for $2 billion today, Twinbeard uploaded a photo to its Kickstarter page with the stretch goal of raising the same amount to “buy Oculus back from Facebook.”

Among the other goals listed includes $150,000 for live-action cut scenes, $200,000 to make Frog Fractions 2 not just a sequel but also a prequel, and $350,000 for Oculus Rift support –– all of which are likely goof goals.

Thus far, Twinbeard has raised just north of $42,000 toward its ultimate goal of $60,000, which needs to be raised by April 9 in order for the project to be funded.

One indie developer, however, isn’t pleased at all with Facebook buying Oculus VR and has cancelled a deal that could have landed its game on the Oculus Rift hardware.
