About

The HoloRealm VR (HRVR) virtual reality gaming attraction immerses players into an interactive adventure. 

We will provide family entertainment centers across the US with HRVR tech, so that players can put on our virtual reality gear and be immediately transported into the game.   

HoloRealm VR is a company founded by a lifelong gamer. Our mission is to provide not only a streamlined VR system for game centers but also a great gaming experience for players. 

Our hardware and software work together to deliver a seamless virtual reality experience.

 Our online platform allows players to create custom handles, avatars, and tracks stats across games sessions, no matter where you play. 

Ditch the couch! Our low-cost game sessions let you experience VR in gaming and family attraction venues. 

HoloRealm VR is a simple yet comprehensive system for adding VR attractions to your gaming center. Our components work together to make VR deployment easy for new-comers and satisfying for experienced businesses. 

Our inside-out tracking system means there is no need for room tracking sensors, cords, or expensive backpacks full of heavy hardware. Our custom-designed equipment is durable, easy-to-handle, and ready to install with minimum requirements. 

Our entire system is cloud-based - no need for an onsite computer. Software updates are pushed to your players without you lifting a finger. 

Our multiplayer games support up to four players in a single gaming area. Unlike current VR hardware, which can cost thousands of dollars for one player, our system lets you make the most of your floor space. 

With our web-based management system, you can control game play sessions from any browser. You can queue sessions, monitor game play, and manage customer accounts - all with one easy to use web app. 


Everything is included in one comprehensive package, no need for licensing additional games or customer management software. Our product is ideal for gaming centers that want a VR attraction without the hassle or overhead of setting up complicated VR systems. 

HRVR has completed the first version of our technology.  We are currently working with potential St. Louis area facilities as launch partners, and will be going live in the coming weeks.

But we need more content to keep players coming back for more.  We are raising $5,000 for the following items:

  • $1,500 - Additional packaged art assets
  • $3,500 - External content development

Zombies have mysteriously overrun the tranquil town of Pleasant Hill. You and your squad have been recruited to exterminate them. Your mission? Get in, get it done, and get out alive! 

HoloRealm VR has created the world's first inside-out tracking virtual reality headset built from the ground up exclusively for family entertainment centers and arcades.  Our technology features:

  • Proprietary, virtual reality headset featuring inside-out tracking 
  • Proprietary virtual reality controller with HRVR Cartridge System
  • Cloud managed control  from any web browser
  • Easy to use, over sized physical volume and eye adjustment controls for players
  • LED state indicators for easy management
  • Easy to access video display
  • Rugged, durable plastic for ultimate hardware protection

Not until you experience HRVR. We've got one of the first gaming experiences to incorporate inside-out tracking with location-based, multiplayer technology. We've eliminated the need for room tracking sensors, cords, and expensive backpacks full of heavy hardware. 

Plus, HRVR lives in the cloud, meaning you can track your stats wherever you play. Share your stats by creating your personalized gamer tag and avatar. Check-in at gaming locations directly from your phone. 

Ditch the backpack, grab a friend, because soon you will be able to try it for yourself. HRVR is fully immersive. HRVR is affordable. And HRVR is ground-breaking

Our cutting-edge technology is affordable, easy to set up, and simple to run. Most importantly, HRVR provides VR customers with a gaming experience they can't find anywhere else.

A one-time setup fee for gaming centers covers:

  • All VR equipment rentals forever 
  • iPad to manage players and games 
  • Onsite room customization and setup 
  • Room decals and signs 
  • Employee training
  • Travel and expenses incurred during setup 

HRVR provides all equipment maintenance. 

  • Replacement for broken items within 1 business day, in most circumstances
  • FREE automatic software and content updates pushed directly to equipment
  • FREE onsite normal wear and tear replacement as needed
  • FREE facility upgrades as we develop newer, more advanced hardware 

VR is complicated and hard to get right. That's why we've gone to great lengths to make the setup process as simple and quick as possible. The reward? Unparalleled VR immersion.
 


You'll be amazed at how easy it is to get a game session started! The process is very similar to running common laser tag attractions. Check-in customers and manage games directly from any web browser. And since everything is cloud-based, the VR gear is the only hardware required. 
 

So, if you pledge your cash, what do you get?  For supporting us, we have some fantastic rewards waiting for you.

Depending on pledge level, players may receive exclusive in-game avatars.  Players can select and customize avatars from the HRVR website.  Once selected, players appear as their customized avatar when in-game at one of our locations.

The exclusive HRVR Founder Badge shows that you truly support our vision and the future of location based virtual reality experiences.  Wear the badge with pride!  This virtual badge appears on your HRVR website profile, as well as above your head when in-game.


Other loot provided to players includes HRVR stickers, and HRVR t-shirts.

And now for what is arguably the coolest pledge reward: Exclusive HRVR Controller Cartridges!  These are physical controller attachments that are shipped directly to you. When you go to any HRVR location, you can plug your cartridge into the location's HRVR Game Controller.  Once plugged in, you can experience an amazing enhancement that makes the game even more exciting.

The following cartridges (and corresponding in-game weapon attachments) will NEVER be offered again.  These exclusive Kickstarter cartridges are not only fun, but someday they'll be a much sought after collector's item.

Exclusive cartridge: Apollo's Firestorm

   - Unlocks Apollo's Firestorm weapon attachment in-game

Exclusive cartridge: The Obliteration Cannon  

   - Unlocks The Obliteration Cannon weapon attachment in-game

Exclusive cartridge: Thunder Stroke of Carnage

   - Unlocks Thunder Stroke of Carnage weapon attachment in-game

These in-game weapon attachments are specific to our feature launch experience, Zombietown. The cartridges will unlock new and different enhancements in future games!

So, what are the advantages to pledging to be a partner?  

Most importantly, you get on our initial list of launch partners.  We are opening our first location(s) in St. Louis, MO.  After going live with our technology, we will be ready to take it nation-wide to the rest of our pledged partners.  We believe customers and players will love our revolutionary product, and we will need to prioritize where we deploy. Partner pledges get you on the list of future deployments and will help prioritize future locations. How high you are on the list depends on how much you pledge, and how early you pledge.  In addition, you will need to qualify as a partner (see below).  

Depending on pledge level, partners get early access to new experiences, levels, hardware, and features.  In addition, partners get special HRVR website promotional visibility and access to HRVR developers to help prioritize game features.

But we are just getting started!  

We want HRVR rooms in every major metropolitan area in the US, and we are doing everything we can to get there as soon as possible.

We are designing and prototyping experiences for everyone, including: party games, exploration, historical event interactivity, learning, building, and artistic expression. 

For gamers, our roadmap contains features like 2 vs. 2 single room multiplayer, room vs. room competitive league play, and even epic multi-room battlefield bonanzas. But, we aren't stopping at shooters.  We're currently designing content for multiple gaming genres with exciting new controller form factors to match the experience.  Ultimately, we want to release a Software Development Kit (SDK) so that anyone can host their content on our platform.

You ain't seen nothing yet! 

  • Woman-Owned Small Business
  • Midwestern USA Technology Startup 
  • HRVR Game Headset and Controller designed and assembled in USA 
  • HRVR game, web, and embedded software designed and developed in USA
  • Supporting American workers and families
  • Supporting independent software artists and developers around the world
  • Sustainability and good corporate citizenship in our community

We will contact patrons in the order of Kickstarter pledge and amount of contribution. All facilities must meet the following requirements:

  • Located within the continental United States
  • Good credit 
  • Available and appropriate space
  • Good lighting
  • Fast and consistent WiFi

Risks and challenges

Growth and scalability will be our biggest challenges going forward. We feel confident that we can continue to innovate in hardware and content, but growing to support hundreds of HRVR rooms around the country will take perfect execution of our business plan. To speed up the deployment of the new HRVR rooms, we have heavily focused on the cloud and simplicity.
