Virtual Reality & Games
We’ve been building games and developing Augmented Reality (AR) experiences since 2008. Recently, we’ve turned our attention to Virtual Reality (VR), helping clients navigate the new generation of this exciting technology. We provide brands with real experiential value.
A new generation of virtual reality
Although Virtual Reality has been in the making for many years, recent innovations in both hardware and software means new possibilities have been realised. We’re now able to provide even more interactive, engaging and compelling digital experiences. No longer are games required to be played on screens (whether that be on a mobile, laptop or desktop PC). Instead, users can step into a fully immersive world and interact with it as if it were reality.
Just games? Absolutely not...
For us, games are the culmination of all digital mediums and provide some of the most interesting of projects to work with. We get to mix brand, narrative, characters, design, moving image, development, interaction, playability and viral mechanic to form a product.
However, games are not the sole application for Virtual Reality. It is also being adopted and developed for a much wider range of uses. Education, training, history, literature, arts and entertainment are being explored by the expanding VR world, and offer a whole new medium to design, develop and experience. We’re at the forefront of this, creating games, but also creating ways for people to experience, see and feel things they may not have otherwise been able to.
Our work with these immersive technologies
We’ve been advisors to the Virtual Reality World Congress and have a track record in delivering experiences for high profile clients such as NatWest, Fosters, Cadbury and Harper Collins.
You can try to define and explain VR until the cows come home, but the only real way of understanding its possibilities is to step into it and experience it for yourself. We’re more than happy to have visitors, and to give them a demo! Have a look at some of our work, and get in touch with us if there is a project idea you’d like to run by us. We’re always open to have a chat.
It’s not just the virtual world that we like to create immersive experiences, the real world comes just as naturally. We have developed flash, HTML5 and mobile games for a range of clients including the BBC. Mobile games should be addictive, fun to play and keep you coming back for more. We are not precious about particular frameworks or solutions and will always look to pick the right tool for the job.
