Google Buys Owlchemy Labs
Just a month after Owlchemy Studios released Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality, Google decided to buy the company as part of its Virtual Reality agenda.
Google Buys the Creator of Job Simulator VR
This is good news for Owlchemy, who had a very humble beginning and ended up being part of one of the biggest companies on Earth. This is also great for Google and us because it shows a log commitment from the company towards good ideas and Virtual Reality development.
“Together, we’ll be working to create engaging, immersive games and developing new interaction models across many different platforms to continue bringing the best VR experiences to life. There is so much more to build and learn, so stay tuned!”
Said Google in a statement.
The guys at Owlchemy Labs are also very exciting:
“This means Owlchemy will continue building high-quality VR content for platforms like the HTC Vive, Oculus Touch, and PlayStation VR. This means continuing to focus on hand interactions and high-quality user experiences, like with Job Simulator. This means continuing our mission to build VR for everyone, and doing all of this as the same silly Owlchemy Labs you know and love. We are continuing to do all of this with even more support and focus on building awesome stuff. It’s incredibly exciting that Google and Owlchemy are so well aligned on our goals and vision for the future of VR.”
Owlchemy is highly renowned for its Job Simulator VR game, some people even consider it one of the best and most creative VR experiences ever created. We sure hope this alliance provides benefits for all parties, and that includes us as consumers. Google may have enough money to buy whatever it wants, but we will be the judges of the result of these purchases.
