About

Welcome to Immersive Gaming Lounge!

We have been involved with the gaming community for many years now. We have always enjoyed our experiences but we want to turn our love for gaming into something great for everyone!

In recent years, gaming has evolved into one of the largest competitive environments on the planet. Unfortunately, usually participation in the world of gaming will force you to remain at home and log into your account to play in a lobby with other players online or by yourself. While it is great that our technology has evolved to a point where we have these capabilities, we believe that it has become far too standardized. These days, it's difficult for a gamer to have in-person interaction when they choose to spend time gaming. Social interaction is a very important thing that we shouldn't have to sacrifice when we decide to game. We want Immersive Gaming to be a place where gamers can go to meet new friends who share their interests and spend time with other gamers in person!

We aim to be the ultimate destination for luxury social and competitive gaming. Once we are funded, we plan to lease a location in a suburb of the Twin Cities, MN such as Bloomington or Apple Valley. At Immersive Gaming Lounge, we will have open gaming, where people can play at one of our many gaming stations for a pre-paid amount of time. We will be starting out with mostly console stations, but we definitely plan to incorporate PC gaming as well.

We will also be hosting cash-prize gaming tournaments. We will have a registration page on our website where participants can claim their entry in the tournament prior to the event. The participants will arrive at the predetermined date to compete in the tournament. First, second, and third placers in the tournament will walk away with a fantastic prize! People will have the chance to vote on a game for upcoming tournaments from a page on our website.

We will also have a theater room, equipped with a fabulous projector and a device that you and your friends or family can use to stream Netflix and watch DVDs when you feel like taking a break from gaming for a while. The theater is also a great place for parents or younger siblings to hang out while their children or siblings game. We will also have screening events at certain times showing certain movies that our guests can vote on ahead of time.

We will also host lock-ins on some weekends, where people can camp out at the lounge for the night and play games, watch movies on our projector, etc. We will also provide optional concessions that you can purchase to keep yourself fueled during these intense overnight events.

As our business grows, we plan to develop and expand as much as possible. We believe Immersive Gaming Lounge will be an amazing place for gamers and we want everyone to be able to join us, so we're aiming for nationwide expansion.

We also believe it's very important to stay up to date with current technology in this industry. As new consoles and accessories come out, such as advancements in virtual reality, we want to keep these in stock for our gaming community.

In advance, we would like to thank you for making this journey possible. Immersive Gaming has been in the works for a few years now and we are so excited to finally be getting ready to make this a reality. It's the support from our beloved community that is going to make this journey possible. Thank you all for your support--we couldn't do this without you!

Even if it's not possible for you to make a donation, please make sure to share this project--that is a great contribution in and of itself. Reaching as many people as possible is going to be the major difference between success and failure for this project.

If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please feel free to reach out to us. We are passionate about our community and we value your questions and feedback. Thank you!

Risks and challenges

A challenge we will face will be drawing a following and consistent flow of customers. We know that we are equipped to handle this because we have extensive experience in customer service and marketing. We also have access to a wide range of marketing professionals that we can utilize if we need to.

Another challenge will be staying up to date and stocked with the current technology. One reason the world of gaming is so fantastic is that it's continually evolving and progressing. As wonderful as this is, it certainly provides a challenge in keeping current technology in stock. We know we are fully equipped to face this challenge, as we are very involved in the world of gaming. This industry is our passion and we are constantly researching the current advancements and upcoming developments. Since we're always educating ourselves and each other on the coming developments in gaming, we will be able to stay ahead of the curve in keeping our accommodations new and exciting.
