Games, as an interactive medium is a natural fit for the immersive experience's VR can deliver. Who doesn’t want to fight robot dinosaurs in a retro neon world? VR technology has finally reached the milestone we’ve been looking forward too for decades. However, VR presents unique challenges for the game designers. Challenge's that you might be the first to overcome or create unique responses too.


VR present a massive opportunity for fashion and textile designers. Using intuitive tools like tilt brush or next-gen gaming software (like Marvellous Designer) can help fashion designers' experiment in ways they could only dream of. VR and AR can give you a way to present your designs in a unique way or test them in environments that would normally be too expensive and time-consuming to attempt.  

VR/Interior Design

Realistic 3D visualisations of an interior designers portfolio or work is nothing new, but what if instead of pre-rendered viz, you could show your clients and future employer's real-time, immersive VR installations? Well you can.

Both the Unity and Unreal game engines support high fidelity, real-time graphics that allow you move and see every nook of your interior from any perspective.

Need to move the couch? Don’t wait hours or days for a new render, wait seconds and see it like it’s really there. Take the work that you're already doing to the next level.
