Global game manufacturer expands into direct-to-consumer with new VR game
Texas, USA (December 8, 2022) —LAI Games, a global leader in the design and development of arcade games and attractions, is giving everyone the chance to build and manage their own authentic arcade in virtual reality, complete with officially licensed, modern arcade titles they can play to win tickets and redeem for prizes in their very own prize store.
After exhibiting at consumer tradeshows globally throughout 2022, Arcade Legend is now available now on Meta Quest, the world’s largest, most highly curated VR content platform. The highly anticipated game features authentic recreations of many of LAI’s current and classic real-world titles, complete with rewarding physics and augmented effects. After mysteriously inheriting an abandoned arcade, players clean up and restore the facility before decorating and customizing their new venue using incredible tools and a wide variety of materials, furniture, and decorations.
As players continue the restoration, they can earn “reputation” to reveal hidden areas, add more games, and attract new NPC (Non Player Characters) customers, turning the venue into a hive of activity! Players can invite friends into multiplayer sessions for social competitive fun or go head-to-head on global leaderboards against the best players in the world.
While the game is LAI’s first official foray into the direct-to-consumer market, the company has been creating virtual reality experiences for arcades since 2017. The popular Virtual Rabbids created the category for unattended location-based VR and set the industry benchmark for quality. Their next endeavor, Asphalt 9 Legends VR, debuted at this year’s IAAPA show in Orlando, Florida.
“As arcade game developers, it’s our mission to connect people with games,” says Shannon Perell, Chief Product Officer for LAI Games. “Arcades are a unique social space, and our vision for Arcade Legend is to take the same physical games and environments that bring us together in the real world and deliver an authentic arcade environment that connects people in the virtual world.”
