We’re a small team focused on improving lives through virtual reality games. We believe that social interaction and gaming can transform lives and we believe that to build this reality requires collaboration between experts in game development and experts in research and healthcare.
We have received funding from the National Science Foundation in the United States for research into virtual reality social technology to reduce isolation and loneliness, we collaborate with wonderful researchers and experts from various disciplines, and we make indie games.
We are veterans of indie virtual reality, with our team working on games including Daydream Blue, Pixel Ripped 1989, and Windlands 2.
We are based in Lexington, Kentucky, though the team is fully remote.
