BANDAI NAMCO Amusement Europe has signed a distribution deal with AI Solve for its We Play VR location-based VR attraction.
The first units of which were installed into Hollywood Bowl sites over the summer.
The We Play VR attraction comprises of a glass-walled maze in which the player wears a VR mask and backpack and is free to move around the unit – while selected sequences from the game are shown from the player’s perspective on an outside screen.
“BANDAI are very excited to be working alongside one of the major players in the VR industry within the UK,” Matthew Bradley, VR project manager at BANDAI NAMCO Amusement Europe said.
“AI Solve believe in the same approach as us with regards to Virtual Reality which is that VR will be a major player in the gaming industry in the next year or so.”
Hollywood Bowl became the first site to feature a We Play VR attraction with Mayan Adventure.
In this game, the players search for a hidden golden monkey statue. After donning the VR headset, explorers descend into a virtual world filled with twists and tunnels.
A “virtual” flaming torch is carried by the player and the mission has to be completed before the flame burns out.
