Squido is a video game studio based in Montreal, Canada. Over the last decade, we have been a bunch of friends working part time on more than 10 web and mobile educational games totaling more than 30,000,000 games played. Since 2019, we have been prototyping an innovative locomotion system for Virtual Reality where you can walk, jump and punch with your arms. At the beginning of 2021 we received funding from the Canada Media Fund for our VR game concept. Since then we’ve been working full time as a team of 7 on our first real game: No More Rainbows, to be released on Oculus, PSVR and SteamVR by the end of 2022.
No More Rainbows
No More Rainbows is a first person VR platformer with unique locomotion that really focuses on the core before anything else. We thought there was something missing in the VR space when it comes to platformers, there’s amazing titles out there, but we wanted that classic Super Mario, Super Meat Boy, or Rayman feel. We decided to make it instead.
No More Rainbows uses the user’s hands and arms as the main locomotion, and you use this mechanic to walk, run, jump and climb basically anywhere you want through different worlds to explore and dozens of levels to play through.
You are The Beast. Since time immemorial you have served as Warden of the Underworld, passing the eternities in a peaceful slumber.
You are suddenly awoken by the sound of horribly joyful melodies piercing the warm darkness. The ashen air now reeks of tulip perfume. The once burning magma floor tiles now feel lush and fresh under your claws. The shrines to the Ancient Ones have been desecrated with childish chalk drawings festooned with nauseating smiley faces.
Behind this commotion are beings of infinite joy and happiness. Mister Bizoux and his merry band of Huggletz are on a quest to take over your sanctuary of screams and turn it into a bountiful paradise where cries of pain and torment are replaced by kisses and rainbows...what a nightmare!
Using an arm based locomotion method, you must spring forth into this fantastical virtual reality platforming world and reclaim your home!
- No More Rainbow’s unique arm based locomotion allows players to play the game the way they want. Any surface is climbable. If you can see it, you can climb it. This gives the potential for infinite routes and speedrunning.

- Compete against the world for the best times! No More Rainbows features global and in-depth leaderboards for completionists and speedrunning enthusiasts.
