Google Buys Successful VR Game Studio
Believe it when you see it. The tech giant has announced its acquisition of cult studio Owlchemy Labs, famous for cutting-edge games like Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality and the satirical Job Simulator, one of the most successful VR titles on the market. While Google has its own virtual reality platform, Daydream, this indicates that the company’s pushing to develop more original content. Austin-based Owlchemy Labs will continue to create games for many platforms, including Cardboard-rival Oculus Rift, but hasn’t announced any big new initiatives yet.
