Leaders in multi-player virtual reality entertainment, Zero Latency, are adding a new game to its arena scale, free-roam VR venues around the world.
Scarygirl Mission Maybee is the first third-party content for the platform, developed by Toronto-based VR/AR developer Dark Slope.
“Zero Latency’s next-generation VR platform is shaping up to be an incredible next step in LBE VR, making it the perfect partner to help distribute our debut title, Scarygirl Mission Maybee,” said CJ Hervey president and co-founder at Dark Slope. “The world of Scarygirl is magical, immersive, and exciting to audiences of all ages, there is no better way to experience it than in warehouse scale VR.”
The game is based on the cult graphic novel and designer toy brand Scarygirl created by artist Nathan Jurevicius. Up to eight players have to work together to save the world from Dr. Maybee, destroying infectious hazardous goo from his scientific experiments and shoot a purified antidote at infected creatures.
Ontario Creates and the Canada Media Fund supported the development of the new game.
“We deliver the greatest free-roam virtual reality experiences available in the world today,” said Tim Ruse, CEO of Zero Latency. “Dark Slope’s Scarygirl Mission Maybee is the perfect addition to our library of VR experiences and will pair extremely well with our next-gen VR platform.”
“Mission Maybee is the first game in our library to be developed by a third party, and I can’t wait for Zero Latency customers to experience the stunning visual world of Scarygirl,” said Scott Vandonkelaar, CTO of Zero Latency.
To date, Zero Latency has 29 VR free-roaming venues in 18 countries around the world. The company recently launched its second-generation platform, developed with Microsoft, HP and Intel.
