Welcome to Cuddle Kobold: Just a Bite! This is a spin-off mini-game based on early development of the full game: Cuddle Kobold! The full Cuddle Kobold will have a very different feel, but with optional mini-games and other activities like this to play.

The rules are simple: It's Nighttime, and the Kobold is looking for a Midnight Snack. Glowies will tide them over until the morning's food delivery, but they might just magically nibble at your height in the meantime! Keep your distance, hide in tucked-away spaces or on top of things if need be, and track down enough Glowies to sate their hunger!

If this is a bit much for you, or not your first time through, you can skip to Daytime by clicking on the Snowglobe, or by using the Settings Menu. You can also play other difficulty levels if you want more of a challenge. Try to beat your Best Times!

While the full release of Cuddle Kobold! will contain optional mature content, I've made sure Just a Bite is Safe For Work, and does not contain any adult content or themes.

Please note: Cuddle Kobold: Just a Bite is designed first and foremost for VR. That is the best way to play it. However, there is an alternate version included with your purchase that will use a Simulator to allow for Mouse + Keyboard play on a regular monitor. See that version's Readme for a full list of controls. The Simulator is not the best way to experience the game, but it is available as an option if you have no other method and still wish to experiment with it.

Current builds require a PC, but can be played on some mobile VR platforms such as Quest 2 using a USB tether, Air Link, or other wireless solutions.

  • Body movement: Left Stick/Touchpad
  • Teleportation: Trigger/Click in Stick
  • Rotation: Right Stick/Touchpad
  • Grab: Grip Button
  • Remote Grab: Hold Grip + Press Trigger (only works when line is Blue)

• If Controllers seem rotated incorrectly, try "Hand Rotation Fix" in Graphics settings!

Simulator (No Headset) Controls:

This simulator is a bit experimental and a late addition!
Please try to play Cuddle Kobold: Just a Bite with a VR headset and controls if you can.

Warning!
The Simulator FPS is currently unlocked due to limitations of OpenXR using the Mock Runtime, and may generate more frames than necessary to display on your monitor. It may be a good idea to directly cap the game FPS to your monitor's refresh rate in your Graphics Card settings.
