Press Kit — Laser Storm Arena
Laser Storm Arena is a shared-space co-op VR shooter where up to 4 players work together against a variety of challenges, like hordes of space drones, space parasites that grab unsuspecting players’ faces, cosmic energy swords, and even gigantic asteroid collisions.
It all happens in a striking, dream-like synthwave inspired setting.
The game stands out for running wirelessly on the Oculus Quest, allowing for complete freedom of movement.
Another feature that sets Laser Storm apart is the focus on player cooperation and interaction. Players can heal each other, save unfortunate players from space parasites, coordinate to protect the team relocating energy shields available in the arena and in general cooperate for the good of the team. At the end of each game, the team score is added to the leaderboards, showing how the group fared against other teams.
Laser Storm Arena was developed primarily with arcades and LBE in mind, but a home version is being considered.
Laser Storm Arena is the first arena multiplayer game developed by Brazilian XR studio Venturion.
Having developed the hyper-reality solo adventure Venturion Experience in 2018, the studio decided it was time to create a multiplayer experience that allowed people to play together in the same space. Laser Storm Arena was created with that player interaction in mind.
♦ Play side-by side with 3 other players, without wires.
♦ Full-body avatars allow players to see each other and communicate.
♦ Fight battle drones, space parasites and threats of cosmic proportions.
♦ Strategically move and relocate energy shields around the arena.
♦ Revive fallen teammates.
♦ Rescue teammates from sticky situations.
♦ When on the outside, watch matches on a dynamic spectator screen.
♦ Create a competitive v-sport environment with the team leaderboards.
Venturion was founded in 2017 inside the venture builder Tapps Ventures. Born as Tapps VR, the studio was re-branded as Venturion in 2019.
Since its birth, Venturion has released a variety of games for all main VR platforms, including a hyper-reality LBE adventure combining VR, physical objects and special effects called Venturion Experience, in 2018. Laser Storm is the first multiplayer experience released by the studio.
