Join Games’ Chief Exploration Officer talks taking VR iGaming to the next level

Tuesday, February 6, 2018

We talked to Martin McDonald, Chief Exploration Officer, Join Games, as the company launches its second virtual reality iGame, Zombie Escape VR.

McDonald said: “We’re really excited about it because it takes us to the next level of our roadmap for virtual reality iGaming. It’s a really unique position for us to be in because it crosses the genre from mainstream computer gaming to iGaming.”

He added that one of the key new features of the new game is that players will be able to “win money for using the skills that they’ve built up.”

The game is a ‘go anywhere’ product as Join Games have invested in mobile. “All you need is a VR headset which you can get for $15 and you put your own mobile phone into it,” McDonald explained.

Game-changer

As mobile and online technology developed, the gaming industry tended to replicate land-based games in a digital format. VR is different, McDonald said because: “VR is an amazing medium and we can do anything with it.”
