Kingdom Run VR is an action-adventure runner aiming to help you exercise while collecting lost gems. A room-scale VR experience, Kingdom Run VR requires full body movement to dodge a wide variety of traps.

Quick Q&A

If you could turn the clock back, would you do anything differently?

Be prepared for anything! This is one of the most unique industries and it will through unique problems at you! Being resilient and planning ahead will help you achieve anything. So if someone asks you to jump on stage, jump on up. If someone asks for a steam page to wishlist, set one up!

What made you want to take part in the competition?

Our team had always aimed to release replayable, gameplay-focused experiences throughout the University. Tranzfuser was the perfect opportunity to take our award-winning prototype and flesh it out into a full commercial release. While also providing the support needed to create a foundation of a sustainable indie company.

Why should the up-and-coming game dev talent of tomorrow apply to Tranzfuser?

Tranzfuser is the ultimate opportunity to learn the ins and out of the industry from leading veterans. You will gain a wealth of knowledge not accessible anywhere else! It will also help you tackle that imposter syndrome and gain an immense amount of confidence.

What benefits did Tranzfuser bring to your game dev career?

Tranzfuser provided us with the resources and connections within the industry to build a sustainable studio. Being able to interact with industry veterans and get their insight has been so valuable. With the focus on the business aspect, I do not think we would be able to gather that knowledge anywhere else.

What are you doing now?

After the showcase, the team worked on completing Kingdom Run VR for a commercial release on March 3rd. So now our Tranzfuser game is officially released!

After finishing Tranzfuser we were invited to take part in DunDev where we started work on our second project Mauled.

With the release of Kingdom Run VR, we are now working on Mauled full-time within our own office!
