Description

Duel VR is a multiplayer western VR game of dynamite explosions, whizzing bullets, broken glass, and bad comedy. Show that you have the fastest gun and sharpest aim in the wild west that is The Internet. Or try your luck with numerous challenges that are less deadly for you, but that more destructive for everything and everyone else around you. Made for roomscale VR!

History

Idea and Medienboard Funding: Michael is CEO and founder of Booster Space and runs the #gamesweekberlin - an umbrella brand connecting 10 different events every April in one week in Berlin. Adam worked for A MAZE. / Berlin festival in 2016. After the event, we met for a beer and bounced ideas from creating a VR Arcade to doing a space game. The idea to do a duelling game in a Western setting for roomscale VR was so appealing, that we teamed up with Julian and started working. The Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg is the regional funding body for film, events and innovative digital content. Thanks to the bravery of Ina Göring who supported the idea from the beginning we got the funding and our first game, Duel VR, started taking shape. Although we had originally planned to release the game as early access version as soon as possible, the many playtests and events we did convinved us to make the project a bit bigger than originally planned. So the release was postponed and we decided to use the buzz around #gamesweekberlin to exhibit as Making Games Festival/Quo Vadis conference, network at A MAZE. / Berlin and press the button for early access release at Gamefest am Computerspielemuseum. Duel on!

About Booster Space

Boilerplate
What we do? Developing experiences for people. We at Booster Space are responsible for tech and game events. You may have heard of #gamesweekberlin, VR NOW Con Awards and gamescom congress. That’s all us. We believe in the transformative power of digital interactive media. In games and VR and other things that make you visit places. We want to give people insights in what drives us. Still we try not to get overexcited and put hype and trends in context, most of the times successfully. We develop brands, curate programs and execute them on-site. It’s like thinking with a thousand heads and speaking with a thousand mouths. Online networks, start-ups, developers, politics, media and cultural leaders come and listen. We also develop games. It’s how we personally create our own experiences. We are based in Kreuzberg. Last time we checked the district was still the most vibrant part of Berlin. Living here teaches us that things and people are connected. We believe in these connections – of business, technology and culture, how innovations have an impact on society and vice versa. We do love this shit. Have a word with us.
