Arcturus was founded in September of 2016 but our story starts earlier than that.
We’ve worked together for years designing games, virtual reality and providing technology development as a service. As we look at the entertainment landscape we feel that the medium of XR is at an inflection point; the basic tools to create XR have been built but there is still a lot to invent and discover in order to create engaging content and we knew it was time to focus our energies on the creation of interactive narrative content and the technology that drives it.
Original and compelling content for XR is driven by great narrative combined with interactivity. A combination that requires a deep understanding of linear storytelling, games, and how to facilitate artists with new technology expanding the boundaries of their imagination.
