About

PLEDGE LEVELS The pledge levels from Core Committee up put *you* in the game. Please pick a pledge level, become a part of VR history and enter the age of Lore!


PLATFORMS Lore is built for room-scale, hand-presence VR: HTC Vive and Oculus Rift with Touch. In game options for movement and accessibility.

 OUR STORY The struggle is real! We started in 2013 with an accelerator, Emergent Labs. This was enough to buy the early VR development equipment needed. We got out of the office and tested with thousands of people, to hone comfortable locomotion and game-play.

 We survived long enough to bring LORE to you!

We’ve built most of Act 1 with our own funds, time and passion. We’re asking YOU to help us finish it faster and build Act 2 and 3, which are currently in pre-production. 

 - We’ve designed out the entire Book 1 of Lore, with game maps, mechanics, art and story.
 - We’ve got the team to do it, and the commitments to complete.
 - We’ve tested our locomotion, puzzle, level design and combat mechanics with thousands of people. It is time to bring Lore to the world!

Risks and challenges

We have mitigated the risks of a long-play RPG game by breaking it up into 3 acts.

We've studied what works and what doesn't in VR for four years.

We have tested the core of our game with many people. We've purchased the soundtrack and custom art for Act I. We have commitments from the entire team for completion of project.

We have several mentors to call on in the game industry and business/music realms for advice should problems arise.
