We're Andy and Lauren and we're building a Virtual Reality MMO, inspired by Ready Player One, and Sword Art Online that also runs on desktop PCs. Ask us anything!
Lauren and I (Andy) are working on Zenith, a VR MMO that also runs on non vr desktops.
You can see some very early prototype footage here.
Zenith is a massively multiplayer online metaverse where millions of players can adventure together in a gorgeous anime inspired world.
We're building this game because we really really wanted to play it, and nobody else was doing it. Games like Final Fantasy, and Chrono Trigger, and more recently Nier Automata, were a huge influence of ours growing up. We're also obviously fans of Snow Crash, Ready Player One.
Although Zenith is the most immersive in VR, it is also going to feature a desktop mode. Zenith supports crossplay between Desktop and VR. We hope to launch on Oculus Quest, Rift, HTC Vive, Index, and PSVR.
We have experience on our team from Oculus, Unity, Google, Apple, Cisco, and other gaming startups and currently are at a team size of 8 and have seed funding from some of the best investors in the world. Obviously we'll need a bigger team to realize the full vision, but our current team size will allow us to build the prototype and gameplay necessary to get more investors on board.
We are using Spatial OS and Unity which allows us to focus on content creation rather than server programming.
We currently have a Discord of about 2000 people here and you can signup for updates here -- we will also be running a Kickstarter starting next week. We have working prototypes and our last game was a finalist for Unity MP and VR game of the year.
