After securing $1.5 million in a seed funding round, the Toronto-based VR and AR developer Dark Slope has announced the launch of its first product, the location-based entertainment title Scarygirl Mission Maybee.
The funding will be used to add new staff and develop the year-old company’s free-roam technology.
Scarygirl was developed for large-scale multiplayer free-roam VR environments and Dark Slope said in a press release that it embodies their goal to design content that brings people of all ages together. Based on the graphic novel of the same name, it’s a first-person action game made for up to eight players.
“Scarygirl Mission Maybee showcases our hyper-focus on developing multiplayer free-roam VR and AR experiences that bring people together in immersive worlds,” said CJ Hervey, President and co-founder at Dark Slope. “We’re excited for audiences to come and be the among the first to experience (the game) and to witness how incredible free-roam multiplayer VR can be.”
