A developer and publisher working at the cutting edge of virtual reality, nDreams are developing and publishing titles across a whole spectrum of genres.
Pivoting to virtual reality in 2013, being one of the first to gain access to development kits for both the Oculus and PlayStation VR headsets, they have built award winning experiences for a range of headsets, helping to drive the growth of home and location-based VR with innovative and memorable experiences.
Their Oculus platform exclusive, Phantom: Covert Ops, reimagined movement mechanics, receiving the Best of E3 award and defining what a premium, long form VR game could be. Their more recent PlayStation VR exclusive, Fracked, delivered a trailblazing, high-paced action shooter that was applauded by critics and players for the execution of its locomotion and cover system, providing “a bite-sized chunk of VR perfection” (Eurogamer). Not to mention, nDreams continue to flex their muscles with well-known IP, working with high profile partners across the industry, such as their development work with Ubisoft and Zero Latency on Far Cry VR.
They owe this impressive catalogue of titles to their competency with the technology and their core technical tenants of “create, innovate, and collaborate.” nDreams provides developers with a friction-free space to come together as a team and really push the boundary of what VR technology can do and mean. This drive is key to their success and has fostered an inclusive team that are frontrunners in their field, recognised by platform holders and IP owners across the industry.
Their organic growth over the last five years has been testament to that, expanding from a singular hub to a multi-studio developer. With the announcement of both nDreams Studio Orbital and nDreams Studio Elevation, the team are going from strength-to-strength to match the demand for varied, high quality VR experiences.
With an aim to create a collaborative and empowering culture for their team, nDreams strive to deliver best-in-class game development coupled with industry-leading work/life balance. With mental wellness and supportiveness a key component to their ethos, the studio also engages in external outreach with Into Games, through the nDreams Academy. Their work helps to bridge the gap between education and employment, as well as internally ensuring individuals on their team are on a personal development plan with training opportunities for career progression and skill advancement. nDreams is the perfect place to innovate, and learn, together.
Keep Calm and waka waka...
