• Why VR?

     

    Much of the VR content coming out today is focused on gaming and has a high barrier to entry.

     

    We see VR as a platform that can transport people to another realm to experience story like never before. It is the next step in the evolution of storytelling.

     

    We want to make VR accessible to people who love a great story, and use its immersive power to give audiences the most visceral narrative experience of their life.

     

  • The Story

    In the distant future our species has colonised the universe in what is known as The Empire. Now we are the target of an unknown enemy and only one group of mercenaries can save us - The PhoenIX.

     

     

    The PhoenIX

    At their core, The PhoenIX believe in helping their fellow man and fighting for those are not able to fight for themselves.

     

    They are a group of mercenaries who don’t necessarily take the job because it pays the most.

     

    The PhoenIX never dies. It is reborn.

     

    Oz

    The current leader of The PhoenIX, also known as Phoenix Prime. Bald, grizzly and battle-hardened, he has seen it all. His father ran The PhoenIX before him and Oz took up the mantle after him. A decorated soldier from earlier Empire Wars, his experience renders him level headed and calculating in times of crisis.

    Orion

    A young man in his early 20s. Young, brash and naïve – he’s in love with the idea of being a space explorer even though he’s just a lowly courier. He has greatness within him which will be revealed.

    Shira Qaline

    Head Concubine to the newly appointed Emperor Zeno II. She doesn't know it yet but she will be the eyes and ears of The PhoenIX in the Empire.
