Force Field VR, the studio behind twin-stick virtual reality (VR) shooter Landfall on Oculus Rift and Term1nal, a puzzle title for Samsung Gear VR, has today announced the completion of a Series A funding round, securing the company an extra €1 million EUR of investment.
In a statement Force Field’s co-founder Arthur Houtman said: “Over the past year Force Field managed to acquire a leading position in the rapidly growing VR and AR industry, delivering a number of ‘best in class’ games and entertainment experiences. For the next years [sic] our aim is to further extend our lead into two strategic directions: the development of high-end location based VR and the creation of a series of unique new IPs for the home VR market. We will use this investment for those purposes.”
The studio launched both aforementioned videogames over the last few months, and has now confirmed that six more titles are in the final stages of development. What these are and which platforms Force Field VR plans to support are still being kept quiet.
VRFocus reviewed Gear VR’s Term1nal back in May, giving it four stars and saying: “Featuring 12 missions, Term1nal is an enjoyable experience from start to finish. In fact you probably won’t notice the time fly by and complete it in one run though, over the course of around 3 hours or so. Term1nal showcases Force Field VR’s knack of creating a solid VR experience that’s a delight to play, making it a worthy addition to anyone’s Gear VR library.”
