“The resurgence of arcades is a welcome development in the virtual reality arena, VR arcades provide an easy entry point for consumers curious about premium VR technology.” – Ben Kim, VP of Business Development Survios
Survios said it will also help other VR devs to enter the arcade market through its own publishing initiative. Arcade operators will receive marketing support from Survios, and Survios will also be adding new games to their arcade partners with the publishing initiative.
“The impact of virtual reality on society became incredibly clear in 2016. From Asia to Europe to North America, we expect VR arcades to be part of that next step in innovation as its presents an amazing opportunity for the public to get a taste of the technology before it becomes common-place in homes everywhere. We’ve been beta-testing this arcade initiative in nearly 30 countries across the globe and plan to take those learnings and expanding the concept’s footprint.” – Survios CEO Nathan Burba
Raw Data is expected to graduate from Early Access in Q1 2017.
