Description

Cloudhead Games is an acclaimed Canadian developer dedicated to weaving thoughtful narrative and interactions into virtual reality.

History

Early history

Cloudhead has been developing in VR since late 2012, before a successful Kickstarter campaign in the spring of 2013 gave them the mandate to create the first ever announced, built-for-VR game, previously known as The Gallery: Six Elements. Cloudhead grew into a diverse team of pioneers drawing from many different backgrounds, from AAA game studios like Bioware, Riot and Relic, to tabletop RPG creators like Worldworks Games.

Since then

As pioneers in virtual reality, Cloudhead has partnered with industry leaders to produce built-for-VR experiences. Their proprietary, cross-platform tool set; and advances in VR research continue to push the boundaries of virtual reality development. The first episode of The Gallery, titled Call of the Starseed, released as a launch title for the HTC Vive in April 2016 to critical acclaim.
