Whether that is through fear, excitement, laughter or love.
We are a community-driven virtual reality development house. It was created on the frontlines of the VR revolution. We evolved from our Orange County VR meetup group, where we focused on bringing together like-minded people with a passion for developing VR/AR experiences.
Our goal is simple: To make you question reality with a Monstrous experience you will never forget!
Sweet Escape VR
Sweet Escape VR is a multiplayer vr game. If you would imagine Hansel and Gretel meets ninja warrior. Two players race against each other and time to get to the checkered flag lollipop. You move by using your hands to climb like some sugar rushed chimp. It is currently available for early access via the steam store.
Gatball is a two player experience where you use your GUNSWORD to shoot and smack the soccer-like-ball into the other players net to score a goal. The player with the highest number of goals scored wins the game. Inside the Gatball battle grounds there is a window streaming in the webcam of your pc, so you can watch your friends cheer you on.
This is a FULLY immersive VR experience where the player is literally shocked. The concept was developed at the horror themed VR hackathon we hosted. We used shock pads, arduinos, LED lights, Haptic Vest and Oculus Dk2 to create the experience. When the light on the back of the chair goes off the person in the chair is ready to be shocked. The next person in line flips the switch and the player is literally SHOCKED.
SoCal VR Conference and Expo
We teamed up with multiple VR communities to host the first ever SoCal VR Conference and Expo. Hosted at UCI’s Applied Innovation on July 12, 2015. There was over 700 attendees, 60 VR exhibitors, 35 key speakers on 8 different panels streamed in 360 video.
VR Film School
Welcome to VR Film School; a 2 day work shop teaching VR enthusiasts how to become VR directors. The goal is to go from knowing nothing about VR to having a piece of 360 video content that is yours to share with the world.

We are bringing together major VR film directors, hardware providers and technical experts to help you get started right.

San Diego Zoo
This was a 360 video produced for San Diego’s tech to reconnect program. Designed to use creative technologies to gain empathy for the animals by literally seeing through the eyes of the animal. This was in conjunction with a San Diego Zoo branded google cardboard to hand out as one complete package.
This is our entry into the indie Milk VR competition. Gone in 60 seconds, focused on taking you somewhere in 60 seconds. We decided to push the boundaries and see if we can add in an abstract theme with a unique spin. Our experiences called "Laguna Beach" is like if Memento met American Psycho and then they fought to the death... In 60 seconds.
We have experience developing on all the latest VR/AR hardware. Oculus, Vive, Gear, Cardboard and more. If you need help with a flushing out an idea or getting it to developed, we can help.
