Because Other Ocean specializes in exploring and exploiting new technologies for games, our intellectual properties are constantly breaking new ground. Our Xbox indie hit #IDARB, was the first game to enable spectator interactivity via Twitch and Twitter, and we were one of the first to explore an open-world virtual reality experience in Giant Cop.
