[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

 

nDreams Ltd., the award-winning virtual reality (VR) developer and publisher, has announced it has set up a dedicated team to create VR games and experiences for the fast-growing location-based entertainment (LBE) market. The first two titles, Shooty Fruity Arcade and Perfect Balloon Flight, will hit arcades in the coming months.

 

Shooty Fruity Arcade sees the critically acclaimed home VR game tailored specifically for an over-the-top arcade experience, giving even more people the chance to prove their skills as a mutant fruit-shooting checkout assistant! nDreams has joined forces with the likes of Ctrl V, VR Junkies, SynthesisVR and SpringboardVR as key arcade partners, with the game launching this winter.

 

Developed in partnership with Starbreeze, Perfect Balloon Flight takes people on a virtual flight of a lifetime across idyllic environments. Following on from the bestselling Perfect VR experience for home headsets, Perfect Balloon Flight will be enhanced by a physical balloon basket and 4D effects in several arcades.

 

“With VR arcade experiences growing in popularity, now is the perfect time to reveal what we have been working on for location-based entertainment” said Patrick O’Luanaigh, CEO of nDreams. “Whilst we continue to work hard on creating new titles for PC and console headsets, including our recently announced involvement with the Oculus Quest, LBE content has become a key vertical for us as we strengthen our position as a leading VR developer and publisher.”
