Today at Google I/O, virtual reality (VR) games studio Resolution Games announced it is one of the first developers committed to creating VR games for the launch of Daydream, Google's platform for high performance mobile VR. The integration aligns the two companies in an effort to push VR further towards mainstream adoption.
"With Daydream's potential reach and accessibility and the current mobile VR headsets on the market, mobile is on track to become the number one VR platform in regards to headsets in the marketplace and potential for mainstream adoption," said Resolution Games' CEO Tommy Palm. "We are very excited to have been invited to be a part of Google's new VR initiative. We feel we share the same vision for VR and are looking forward to working together to increase VR's spread into mainstream and setting additional standards for the future of VR."
Resolution Games also unveiled details about its upcoming title for Daydream, Wonderglade. The game invites players to explore a whole world of carnival-themed gameplay and will be family friendly and accessible so everyone can get in on the fun and revisit the wonders of new and familiar carnival games. Like Resolution Games' other VR games, Bait! and Solitaire Jester, the aim with Wonderglade is to provide the perfect content to introduce VR to those new to the platform, while also delivering the sort of compelling and quality gameplay that keeps the most avid gamer enticed for hours.
"We think Wonderglade will be an ideal component in helping Google reach mass market as a game everyone can enjoy and the perfect door-opener for those new to VR," added Palm. "Virtual Reality is something that everyone can enjoy. It is a far too important human discovery to be exclusive to a handful of gamers. The world needs interactive VR worlds that are intuitive, social and non violent."
